At the same time, China's outdated Leninist dictatorship, which is under constant pressure to demonize foreign or domestic 'enemies' as a way of distracting attention from spiraling corruption and its own massive crimes against the Chinese people (which are not only far greater in magnitude, but much more recent, than imperial Japan's war crimes in China), may have to pass into history for the Chinese civilization to consistently remain at peace with its neighbors.
