“but we do think that in a New Cold War between the U.S. and China, that the U.S., and its allies, prevailing is a good thing. Democracy is better than Communism.”

It is sad to find out that Packy McCormick——the author is also a person who is caught in an ideological delusion.

The narrative of democracy VS authoritarianism seems to have been misleading many people. The world is diverse and complex, and the political systems of Western countries are not the only way out for humanity. Each country's path is based on its own history, cultural traditions and natural endowments, and we should respect the choices of other civilizations and countries.

It is not a good thing for the world that the US is provoking confrontation with China around the world. Nor does the U.S. behaviors fit the set of ideological propaganda it claims to have, such as market economy, free competition, and the UN Charter.

This just shows that world the hypocrisy and double standards of the US

Put aside your arrogance and prejudice and open your eyes to take a closer look at China and emerging countries
