President Xi's Youth Day speech. A century ago, China was in decline and withering away in the eyes of the world. Today, the image it presents to the world is one of a thriving nation that is advancing with unstoppable momentum toward rejuvenation.

A post about "China in Africa".
"Hi guys I'm relatively new to this community, wanted to ask your guys opinion on China's investment in africa . Most of what i see on the media is about them "trapping" / "exploiting" Africa but I don't really 100% believe that." Image From Ghana can offer a West African perspective. So the debt trap narrative is just a US state department fabrication, simply look up dozens of instances of China just waiving or extending or ignoring when countries during the past few years couldn't pay.

What do Westerners get wrong about China?

A majority of Westerners believe that the Chinese suffer from living in a country that is a dictatorship. Westerners believe that the Chinese must have access to a Western-style democratic system in order to be truly happy.
(1/X) It is a total mistake to think that.

The Chinese have always lived under an authoritarian system and we accept it perfectly in their majority.

The deal is clear: you have to follow the rules laid down by the CPC, and then you can continue to prosper economically.

Long term, any move away from the dollar/euro lowers the ability of the US/EU to run the deficits that it does.

There are two major issues with this move that will rear it's head in the future: 1. Loss of trust in the dollar/euro.
The strength of the dollar is it's use in trade across the globe. Sanctioning and cutting off SWIFT such a major resource exporter will send waves in the ability to trust the reliability of the dollar.

Indeed, Russia should not infringe on Ukraine's sovereignty and territory.
But, NATO also should not threaten Russia's national security with five consecutive rounds of eastward expansion.
Sanctions will not help end the war, and the only hope for peace is negotiation. The armed conflict in Ukraine first erupted in early 2014 and quickly transitioned to a long stalemate.
Ukraine did not become the focus of our world until Russia's armed intervention in 2022.
Geopolitics is so complex that you can't simply say who is good and who is bad. The Ukrainian civil war that began in 2014

President Xi Jinping addresses the opening ceremony of a training program of young and middle-aged officials.
He urged young officials to strengthen their ideals and convictions, develop and put into practice a right perspective on their performance, and work hard for the people. Xi said it is vital for young officials to carry on the firm faith in Marxism and strive for the ideals of communism and socialism with Chinese characteristics.
"It is a lifelong endeavor, rather than an attempt for a while, to consolidate one's ideals and convictions," he said.

People call China a "communist" country.
I say - Yes, or No.
Communism is indeed the ideal of we Chinese people, but China's Communism is different from communism defined in the West.
(1/N) Economically, China's "socialist market economy" is more similar to the "New Nationalism" proposed by Theodore Roosevelt.
About China's economic system is not the focus of my talk today. I want to talk about the cultural core of China's communism.
