As for me, I would prefer to try new things. After all, there has to be someone to push forward the development, be it technology or something else.

US has to exercise caution in using newly minted Hong Kong law

To sum up, Trump has signed another evil law that intervenes in China's domestic affairs and violates the country's sovereignty by using Hong Kong as a stick.

US should heed Kissinger's warning on ties

China needs to have a clearer vision of the characteristics and features of today's China-US relations.

Washington might not accept China's rejuvenation now, however historical logic has already proved that the most practical and feasible solution to deal with major power relations is through mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and healthy competition.
