PEN America imposes double standards of free expression in Hollywood


The US, which stresses political correctness more than ever, does not enjoy so-called freedom of speech as much as it claims. While Hollywood blockbusters have be shown in China, such as superhero movies like Captain America, The Avengers and Spider-Man, to name just a few, will US authorities give the green light to films featuring Chinese heroes? The answer is no. So where does their touted freedom of speech lie?

It's time for Canberra to be assertive and not a US pawn

China respects and supports Australia's independence in policymaking with regard to international politics and diplomacy, economic cooperation and cultural diversity. It is time for Australia to be assertive in its own international policy and, as Payne judiciously said, to “make our own decisions, our own judgments in the Australian national interest”.

AUSMIN shows Australia's China policy different to US'

US degrades from innovator to digital rogue

While China is busy innovating, the US is guarding against an innovative China. This twisted behavior has prevented the US from continuing to innovate and reform. The dominant position it acquired, or its hegemony, is becoming a self-inflicted fetter for its progress.

India's hard-line attempt to politicize Confucius Institutes will backfire

India's decision to review the Confucius Institutes is in fact an act to politicize education and people-to-people exchanges. It will negatively affect the mutual trust between the Chinese and Indian societies as well as the political trust between the two governments.

West's accusation over China's win-win cooperation with African countries is unjust

The African Union on July 29 highly commended China for its continued support and assistance to Africa's capacity for disease control and prevention. In the eyes of African observers and people, what does cooperation with China look like? Does such collaboration actually lead to a "dept trap?"

Trump Administration's Foreign Policy: B.L.A.M.E. Game against China

A lot of questions have been raised lately about the US-China relations. Why are they at one of the "darkest hours"? How did they get here? By taking a closer look, one can find that the Trump administration has stepped up a B.L.A.M.E. game against China across the political spectrum, trumpeting a policy that is belligerent, lawless, arrogant, tainted with McCarthyism, and aiming for reelection.

FactBox: Who Bears the Brunt of A Souring China-US Relationship?

Banning TikTok reflects Washington's cowardice: Global Times editorial

By banning Huawei, the US would lag behind in 5G technology. By banning TikTok, the US would harm its own internet diversity and its belief in freedom and democracy. When similar things happen time and again, the US will take steps closer to its decline.

Racism, McCarthyism and Trump's attack on TikTok

Racism and McCarthyism are converging in the US to advance a new cold war against China. The White House's bullying of China's private sector is stoking a growing dislike of the US among ordinary Chinese.

US hegemony unsustainable under disguise of values

The US will continue to make an issue of the so-called threats China poses in values and ideology to justify its crackdown on China. But the US hegemony can hardly be sustained in such a barbaric way.
