4. China is the new "UN". The "UN" was the new "France".
Actually there are some areas where China needs to do some work. Horrible human rights abuses happen there still on a daily basis. As a Tibetan sometime.

So China may actually make a good 'whipping boy' for now. Because they do do some bad bad things. But that is just the current administration. That says nothing about the Chinese or Chinese culture. Just the totalitarians being totalitarian. Less so these days.

I just hope we can get the US to stop building a utopian society too. Cause they are universally horrid. And the USA has nothing to be proud of where the distribution of wealth is concerned. USA ranks right beside MEXICO & RUSSIA in how unfair wealth is distributed. That is really, really bad when you consider the other two are corrupt democracies and Russia's is about 15 years old. So I get your anger at not being scolded by a 200 year experiment that is having a little "trouble" right now.
