Is China Really a Threat?

The West is making a big strategic mistake if it perceives China to be the threat to liberal ideology.

In so doing, it is only looking for a scapegoat to avoid examining its own self-inflicted injuries. The key question that Western minds need to ask is a simple one: how was the relative over-performance of Western societies in the second half of the 20th century replaced by underperformance in the 21st century? The answer will not come from looking at China. It will come from looking in the mirror. Kishore Mahbubani, fmr. President, UN Security Council.
