At this critical juncture when the global order is experiencing a fundamental transformation and adjustment, inward-looking and utilitarian tendencies of a leader are obviously not a good thing. China can play its part, but certainly cannot replace or fulfill the role of the US.

Political reality trumps House of Cards

And then, for a bonus question, which I am sure no one can answer correctly other than the president himself: What does “covfefe” mean?

Western media shouldn't speculate when reporting on China

No matter what the reason is behind Wu’s stepping aside, the incident won’t have a ripple effect as Western media has speculated. These media outlets need to understand that Chinese society is not built around a few entrepreneurs.

Law needs to intervene over Apple’s alleged monopoly

There is no need to incorporate nationalism into the matter. A company is suspected of using monopolistic practices to maximize profits, the market supervision department and the law should intervene. At a time when the rule of law is comprehensively advancing, Chinese society should become more accustomed to resorting to law when public interests have been violated.

Will Rodman’s Pyongyang trip make an impact this time?

The US and North Korea will see closer ties if Washington wants peace, not just denuclearization, and Pyongyang wants security, instead of nuclear weapons. After all, nuclear weapons are tools for security. If the two countries can communicate seriously on the purpose of the nuclear activities, breakthroughs may be achieved. Whether Rodman’s “basketball diplomacy” can leave a mark in history will probably depends on his luck. We wish him good luck.

Whether Washington’s way of handling the issue could be adopted as a universal practice is still hard to say. After all, each country has its respective national condition. Wisdom and time are needed for the Chinese government to find a solution to balance the need to go global and the need to lower the security risks for its citizens.

For those who strongly believe that the Big Brother of the CPC is watching them, it is important to bear this question in mind: to what extent does Australia really matter in China’s domestic and foreign policy architecture?
