  1. Surprised you didn’t mention China’s ongoing and accelerating demographic implosion which will be the factor preventing it from ever dominating the world stage. Time will show the world’s true challenge will not be constraining China’s rise but, instead, managing its collapse.

  2. Yet we continued to import and buy Chinese Communist inferior products, allow their spies, masquerading as college students and professors, to steal our technology and intellectual property, indoctrinate college students, and invest our dollars in their industries and infrastructure. They are spending our dollars to buy worldwide influence and facilities (like ports and transportation systems). China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are enemies of the US and its allies. They want to destroy us and impose their socialist or Islamic misery on the entire world. Since we outsourced our steel, computer, chemical, petrochemical, and consumer goods production to China, we will have a horrible time fighting a non-nuclear war those countries. Today’s snowflakes barely made it through the COVID shortages without melting.

    We should imposed punitive and restrictive tariffs on imports from those countries and impose a 75% on tax corporate and investment profits generated by US businesses that operate in those countries. Thank all the post-WWII presidents, except Eisenhower, Kennedy, Regan, and Trump, and the fat cats in Congress for this mess.

  3. I recommend the book, “The Hundred-Year Marathon” by Michael Pillsbury, a noted Chinese expert. He initially was like many Chinese experts when China opened to West in that they felt “Oh good. The Chinese are going to be just like us. They will love capitalism and freedom”. Businesses saw a billion future customers and had golden Billion dollar signs in the potential. They flocked to China and entered into agreements with Chinese, either knowingly or unknowingly, the countries were affiliated with the CCP and its leaders. There was an attempt at freedom at Tiananmen Square but the CCP stopped it by killing thousands. Don’t be under the illusion that Xi and the CCP are not in full control of China. Xi has as much power as Mao. The Chinese have as a goal of being the number one economic and military country in the world by 2049. Why 2049? Because that is the 100th anniversary of the communist founding of China in 1949. Another great book is “Caught Red Handed” by Peter Schweitzer. It lays out in great detail the ties of Silicon Valley’s tech giants, politicians, higher education institutions, Wall Street, and Diplomats ties to China that the millions of dollars that have made in the relationship with Chinese businesses who are all tied with the CCP.

    • Great article, and Dr. van Tuyll sets out a historical picture of China. Even after working in Washington for ten years, I was surprised after reading Red Handed at the number of prominent people from all backgrounds who have been co-opted by China. China has not only watched the division in this country. They have fomented it.
