Imperialism’s interest in overturning the rule of the CPC in China, under the euphemistic rubric of “security”, “democratic values” and “rules based order”, was codified in the week of summitry comprising the meetings of the G7, NATO and the Biden-Putin summit.
The accumulated achievements of China since its revolution of 1949 are so great that they have now not only changed the world but must lead every socialist and progressive person to think about their relation to them.
As Biden escalates US aggression against China, opposing this cold war is increasingly discussed among leading progressives in Latin America. Relations between China and Latin American can aid the latter countries to pursue an independent foreign policy instead of being subject to US dictates.
China’s new ambitious climate targets – of peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and reaching net-zero emissions before 2060 – has already started to change the global political dynamics on climate change.
The West must follow suit in raising its own ambition and action.
China invests and provides grants in Latin America with no interference in the recipient countries’ policies. The US government pressures Latin American countries to cooperate with its global policy agenda and tries to force them to choose between Beijing and Washington.
For the left to be neutral in the face of the US’s cold war against China, to present the US and China as twin evils and therefore adopt the slogan of “neither Washington nor Beijing” is completely absurd and bares no relation to the reality. It is the US, not China, which represents a threat to all humanity.
