Okay- I agree it is UN-Diplomatic, after all, I’m talking about Un-Silencing the Too-Long-Silent Majority. See?! Doesn’t it make sense?! Image

China is the largest developing country in the world, a country that is committed to peaceful, open, cooperative & common development. We will never seek hegemony, expansion, or sphere of influence. We have no intention to fight either a #ColdWar or a hot war with any country.
We will continue to narrow differences and resolve disputes with others through dialogue & negotiation. We do not seek to develop only ourselves or engage in zero-sum game. We will not pursue development behind closed doors.
Rather, we aim to foster a new development paradigm with domestic circulation as the mainstay and domestic and international circulations reinforcing each other. This will create more space for China's economic development and add impetus to global economic recovery & growth.

Don’t get drowned in peripheral info & coverage. Don’t get distracted by little symptoms-proposing Junkie sites (MSM, YouTube, Social Media...). Don’t get easily divided by petty illusional sides. Take the macro view & act accordingly.

...from its establishment in 1949 until his death in 1976.

Ideologically a #Marxist#Leninist, his theories, military strategies, & political policies are collectively known as #Maoism.

(2/17) Image
Based on the Soviets' experience, #Mao considered violence to be necessary in order to achieve an ideal society that would be derived from #Marxism and as a result he planned & executed violence on a grand scale.

Remembering @pewresearch founder Andy Kohut on the 5th anniversary of his death today. This @AAPOR heritage interview (w/ @c_deane!) a wonderful way to look back on remarkable life and career. A few highlights for me. Thread 1/n
Andy started his polling career @Gallup because he and his wife needed $650 to pay the hospital fees for the birth of their first child!
Began as a part-time position in evenings while he was doing graduate studies at Rutgers. 2/n.
He left studies because he was 'learning so much at Gallup' and excited by the variety of the work, including marketing research.
Columbia Pictures was an early client, including survey work on the film Easy Rider! 3/n

1. My thought on #ChinaUS relations at a webinar with friends from @BrookingsInst on August 13:

Full text:
2.The China-US relationship is going in the wrong direction&it is happening when international cooperation is urgently needed. The deterioration of China-US relations undermines people's confidence in the global economy, with serious consequences for both countries and the world.
3. None of the major international crises in the 21st century, including the current pandemic, is a traditional security threat & can be resolved with the toolbox of great-power competition. The world has changed.

English language pamphlet from early 1960s defending the Berlin Wall, found in archives of the Communist Party of Great Britain.

The string of recent actions taken by the #US against China are aimed at stoking ideological confrontation and reviving the #ColdWar in the 21st century. It feels like that the specter of #McCarthyism is resurfacing in the US.
In the 1950s anti-communist hysteria, the Chinese community in the #US was suspected as "spies". Over 20 mln people had to go through "screening". Even kids had to sign a "loyalty oath". "Find reds under the beds" describes such insane paranoia.
The witch-hunt among Chinese scientists and harassment&detainment of Chinese students in the US are reminiscent of McCarthyism. Acting on the basis of race&ideology and hyping up the "red menace", the US politicians try to define China-US relations with ideological confrontation.

.@POTUS says withdrawal of almost 12,000 US troops from #Germany result of German failure to spend more on defense

"Why would we keep all of those troops there" he told reporters "Germany is delinquent...They’ve taken advantage of us for many years"
Asked about whether the move was about #German defense spending, @EsperDoD said, "We began this process actually several months ago...what the president did with his directive in early June was to accelerate that process"
"We are still retaining a little more than 24,000 troops in Germany, which is still a lot, and I think still more than any other country in #Europe" per @EsperDoD

(Thread) It’s shocking to see the actions of Secretary of State Mike #Pompeo and the immaturity of #US Government officials. Now they are ordering #China to close its consulate in Houston for protection of American interests? If this goes through, #Beijing will retaliate
and order the closing of the US consulate in #HongKong and further weaken US-China relations. I'm worried about war between #US & #China.

This is very different than the threats of a war with the Soviet Union during the #ColdWar era. Why?
Because at that time the Soviet’s economy was crumbling. China has a strong military and even stronger economy. They also remember 150 yrs of suffering through the Opium Wars. #China will not be intimidated by #America.

Lone wolf: The West should bide its time, friendless China is in trouble…
China made its great mistake. Communist Party strategists falsely concluded that the Lehman crisis had permanently wounded the US and discredited free-market liberalism.
It tempted the politburo into clinging too long to a growth model past its sell-by date, plagued by reliance on Leninist state capitalism and the productivity-killing, state-owned entities.

#Teachers --- I was recently invited by Tony Morse (world history) at @claytonvalley high school #ConcordCA for a discussion with his students about the #ColdWar with specificity centered on events from 1948-1990.

55 participated in the call

#teachers #coldwar #education

Feedback from Morse:
"The overwhelming sentiment from my students was that learning about the Cold War is so much more powerful when they are interacting one on one with someone who lived it. "

Katrina said "Mr. Burgess lived in Moscow and worked for the CIA. We can read about people like him, and watch videos, but it doesn't seem as real as hearing someone speak directly to us". Image
