There isn’t a superpower to challenge China, they can do as they choose. Only western consumers can vote with their wallets, and I can’t see it.
It will be like this for centuries to come tbh. Just like the Roman empire, Ottomans etc lasted for centuries, so will China. Their biggest enemy will be from within, probably from progressives left maybe in a generation or three.
No one made America stop using slavery. That was an internal matter and the country is still adjusting to the change
It will have to be the same in China tbh. Perhaps a more westernised Chinese leader may feel some embarrassment at being called out by the international community
I suspect that these communist regimes apply reverse McCarthyism on suspected capitalists with added torture, prison time and murder, to weed out the westernised "traitors". Look at Jack Ma.
Hmmm, ok, but what happens if they choose a more Chinese dictator, I mean, leader?
That's the status quo, all the leaders so fat had very little contact with western countries in their upbringing.
In time it'll be difficult to find anyone who isn't westernised to a degree. Plus the CCP and politburo will in future be filled with people who've had a lot of contact with western cultures, notyo mention the internet.
Obviously, the case of Jack Mais evidence they're cracking down on outside influence but Ma is just the tip of the iceberg of the emerging generation.
