Why the rise of China is a long march

The rise of Britain took nearly two centuries. The rise of the US took more than 100 years. China did not seek to be the world's leader, but the rise has not been slow. With the success of reform and opening-up over 40 years, China still needs to make efforts to build a "long-lasting war."

Revocation of INF treaty may fuel unprecedented weapons proliferation

Time for dialogue to manage new risks to nuclear stability

Unfortunately, if history is a guide, it may take a near-death crisis before the major powers reverse the logic of all-out competition, accept the reality of mutual vulnerability and find ways to manage it. One Cuban Missile Crisis was more than enough. The world may not be so lucky next time.

HK's law-abiding majority won't remain silent

Clickbait rankings cloud the internet

Every platform needs to stick to a hard-core indicator, real data, and transparent evaluation for each ranking. Digital data should not be the sole pursuit of internet platforms. Digital data can show something but people need to change their attitude toward it by acknowledging its importance.

Video games are not necessarily bad for children

There was a period when I didn't have too much work to do and gaming took up almost all my spare time.
