Chinese people confident in CPC despite strong US pressure

According to a Global Times online survey this week, about 96 percent of the Chinese netizen participants believe that the US' attacks on the Communist Party of China (CPC) aim to "sow discord between the Chinese people and the Party to jeopardize solidarity in China," and to "mobilize a new Cold War against China by attaching an anti-CPC ideological label to US' anti-China campaign." Only 2 percent of the participants think "the US does so for China's good."

US shirks international responsibility, pushes new Cold War

As Washington launches an apparent all-out new Cold War against China, the US is increasingly seen as a petty superpower. The latest evidence lies in Foreign Policy magazine's Friday article hyping the "China threat," which is full of worn-out clichés.

More Americans should be encouraged to learn Chinese

Let more Americans learn Chinese, then they will be able to tell right from wrong, and grasp the real picture of China that is completely different from the demonization in the election campaign.

Does TikTok evoke Ferguson's nostalgia over British Empire?

Some Westerners have twisted mind-set on #TikTok, a Chinese social media app that poses real challenge to US internet giants. They still live in nostalgia over Western empires' glory in the past, hope to see China as a subordinate to the West.

Absurd for Trump to assume China wants to 'own' US

No matter how hard they try to throw mud at China, it wouldn't cause a substantial impact on China. China's development mainly depends on its firm insistence on the path of reform and opening-up, and the diligent work of the Chinese people. China will never pin its development on the policy change of a new US president.

US technological authoritarian mentality hurts American companies

China's political system and ideology did not, does not, and will not restrict dynamic companies like TikTok and Huawei from innovation and development. It is the US' Cold War mindset that tries to stifle them.

Ridiculous US speech controls see pandas as state-affiliated media

The so-called freedom of speech in the US has always been a false proposition. Washington has shamelessly made freedom of speech its motto. But when it comes to a real clash of speech, people will see speech control measures (such as removing online posts or adding special labels to certain social media accounts) be adopted in the US. Twitter's recent variation of censorship move has again exposed that the US "has no clothes" called freedom of speech.

If war breaks out between China and the US, which side will have the upper hand?

China will be well prepared to fire a second shot as a response to the first shot. On core interests, China will not back off.

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?

Gordon Chang makes noise by suggesting US cut ties with China

Cutting ties with China means to cut ties with the rest of the world. People like Gordon Chang have overestimated the US ability to bear the huge costs of cutting ties with China.

Hard to say who will surprise you in the future, US or TikTok

In addition to power, there exist rules and morals in this world. Although Trump's power can overwhelm rules and ethics, he has only fewer than three months left before the presidential election. People have a subtle perception of rules and ethics in their minds. Trump could thus lose votes due to any most slightly careless move.

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.

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.

TikTok's 'sin' is challenging US tech giants for free-flow of ideas

Even trapped in the current quagmire, Bytedance has shown the world the US high-tech giant's ugly face of hunting a Chinese company and plundering its achievements. It has also shown people how hypocritical the US is by advocating the absolute free flow of information.

Is Australia serious in backing India in border tensions with China?

Perhaps Australia needs to show something concrete to prove that it is not a model of harming China's interests, which would cost itself dearly.
