There are no truly GOOD reasons why east & west should not get along. The USA, close European allies & those more distant have developed a group-thought attitude that permeates its ethos & belief-systems. It has developed/evolved over decade after decade of patrician power. 1/
2/ Western elites clearly see the rise of the east as a threat, an economic threat. But this is only true in the short to medium term we would posit. Long-term we can all share in a much-needed world of cooperation & mutual benefit. Short term the West inevitably loses of course.
3 How to get over this problem? This is very difficult if the western elites continue to act as spoilers in this developing economic situation. To do this they have clearly decided to use the fear factor & name the rising countries not aligned with them as "enemies".
4 It will hopefully be clear to anyone reading this that both China and Russia are solely interested & inclined to grow their economies & influence in terms of economic terms, never, ever within this context that the West asserts, of military expansion, dominance or control.
5 As a species we must get round this increasingly dangerous & divisive group-thought paranoia so evident in the West. But it must come from the western elites themselves. Russia & China are constantly proving they have no malign intent despite all western claims to the contrary.
