Supporting our country is supporting ourselves

Today marks the 71st birthday of the People's Republic of China (PRC). It is also the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival. I wish all the Chinese spend a happy holiday, no matter whether they have returned to their hometowns, traveled somewhere, or just stay at home to spend some leisure time. I'd also like to send my best regards to people who still have to work and hope they can get paid three times of their normal pay for the work during the holidays. Just sue the companies which do not make such offers.

New worldview opportunities for China

Chinese are gradually forming a more complete global view. More importantly, China is being fully integrated with the world (not just with the West) as a whole psychologically. China and the world are mutually recognizing, adapting and accepting each other on a global, not just regional, level.

Fallacies form US strategic thinking about China

The only thing one can really say about the “fears” of the US political elites looking at a possible conflict with China (examining the record we will soon discover) is something that a popular cartoon characters expressed many years ago, “We have found the enemy, and they are us!” Hopefully the spirit of Washington, Lincoln, and FDR is not completely extinguished in the minds of our political elites.
