I Watched China’s Overseas Propaganda Network So You Don’t Have To
Robert Beckhusen

I think the relatively non-confrontational and dry nature of Chinese media has as much to do with the Cultural Revolution and the consensus to avoid incendiary rhetoric and ‘not remember past wrongs’ (in the manner of Athenian amnesty), as it does with international strategic prognostication.

Certainly China is concerned with international balance of power, but remember that there has only been an orderly and formalized succession system since Jiang, less than 30 years.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
