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?

US hostility toward China rooted in hegemonic struggle

Washington's negative reaction is because the US seeks to maintain global hegemony. It is, therefore, hostile to any state that seeks sovereign independence - regardless of its model and internal system.

US suppression of China is not just about ideological differences

In order to legitimate their vicious campaign, certain US politicians have stigmatized the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and so on.

Global Britain vision needs cohesive, credible Post-Brexit kick start

The UK has taken a back-and-forth attitude toward China. It has followed the US's campaign against China. Why has Britain changed its course in such a short time? What should be a wise choice for the UK when pressured by the US to pick sides?

Anti-separatism a challenge to governments worldwide

Western countries may take more time to think about showing more understanding and goodwill toward cooperation with China when it comes to dealing with radical religious forces and separatism, instead of making demonized distortions and arrogant accusations about China's approaches. After all, they are not about different ideologies, but a worldwide problem.

Further opening up key to dealing with challenges: Global Times editorial

As long as China insists on opening-up, no other countries can block it. From this perspective, China's future is in our own hands. Victory will be ours, provided our insistence on opening up.

A strong EU can mutually benefit China: German scholar

If the European Union succeeds in presenting itself as a strong political and economic force on the world stage, that will also be good for China, because it can profit from Europe not only as an export market, but also as a reliable and predictable player in international politics.

EU split on China as Beijing-Washington conflict worsens

China and the EU are strategic partners, whose consensus outweighs their divergence. The bilateral ties impact not only the two sides, but also global governance. Instead of being negatively influenced by their differences, Beijing and Brussels should maintain their friendly relationship and promote their coordination.

Trump policy toward China skewed by academic fanatic

Pompeo's remarks instigated greater hostility toward the US in China, adding resistance to a new round of China's reform and opening-up. The huge costs of this new cold war are also being imposed on American society. It is misleading and not in the US' own interests to allow people like Yu to dominate the formulation of US' China policy.
