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?

Pompeo is a good contributor to US deficit of credibility

If the US continues to arbitrarily throw its weight around and bully others, it will only isolate itself from the world. By then, Pompeo and other US politicians will find that they feel “surprised and dismayed” on many other issues.

Internet public opinion a valuable resource that should be protected, enriched

I hope that the room of public opinion can be continuously expanded, the reach of public opinion supervision could be wider to form a stronger deterrent. The internet public opinion has become a valuable resource for the Chinese public to strengthen their participation in social governance. While strengthening management, it is undoubtedly necessary to protect and enrich this resource.

Indians can hardly afford an economic conflict with China

I can't believe why these two countries would put aside cooperation on economic development but to fight each other over border disputes. That obviously does not serve the fundamental interests of the two peoples.

Lee Teng-hui will not be remembered fondly in Chinese history

People flocked to the internet to discuss Lee Teng-hui, former leader of the island of Taiwan, shortly after he died of illness on Thursday evening. Many have criticized him, while others have offered their support, praising his "contributions" to Taiwan democracy. These voices argue that Lee initiated one person, one vote "presidential" elections in Taiwan and was the first popularly elected "president." Western media have also spoken highly of his advocacy of "Taiwan sovereignty" and his encouragement for people in the island saying they are "Taiwanese" rather than Chinese.

US cannot have real economic recovery as long as pandemic continues: Global Times editorial

No doubt the Trump administration is going down a wrong path. If the pandemic continues, the team may eventually not get what it wishes. Make adjustment earlier, join hands with China, and the global fight against the COVID-19 will take a new look immediately. This will be good for everyone, and a plus to the Trump administration.

Ironically, when Zuckerberg addressed Tsinghua University in Beijing five years ago, he praised “great Chinese companies” such as Alibaba and Xiaomi, and China's history as “a story of innovation.” But now, he accuses China of stealing technology from the US.

New fighter jets fuel nationalism in India

New Delhi needs to wake up to the fact that the gap of national strength between China and India is actually widening. It should also realize that the US will hardly provide India with any solid benefits. How India reacts to these realities will determine its future diplomacy with China.

China, Japan should avoid new animosity: Global Times editorial

The alliance did not accept typical Western countries like Germany, France and Italy. Why is it interested in including Japan? Could it be anything other than a huge strategic plot?
