Why America Need Not Fear China

The U.S. may be in decline, but the fact that the U.S. asks that question so often is one of the reasons it has not declined. Americans have a strong impulse for course corrections.

The reality is that China is a mess. There is probably no society in the history of mankind (with the possible exception of Cambodia and maybe ancient Sparta on small scales) that has been subject to more massive attempts at utopian experiments in social engineering: mass starvations, forced abortion and infanticide policies, ideological 180-degree mid-air gainers on the status of wealth creation, massive persecution of its most promising cultural and political revitalization movements, stop-start monetary policy.
