The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Taiwan secessionist forces have provoked a growing sentiment in the Chinese mainland of reunifying with the island of Taiwan by military force, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council said on Wednesday. The DPP and Taiwan secessionist forces should reflect on why voices are increasing for military force among mainland residents in recent years, Ma Xiaoguang said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a nasty regime.  But sometimes one marvels at what it has accomplished.  And no, it’s not the Shenzhen skyscrapers or the new Beijing airport. Rather, the CCP has pulled off the most successful psychological operations campaign in history over the last four decades.  It managed to neuter the United States – the only country that might have prevented it from building an economy and a military able to challenge...

… Far from enabling China’s peaceful reunification, the one country, two systems model is undermining it. Perhaps this was inevitable, owing to a cause more fundamental than Xi’s centralisation of power, the Communist Party’ increasing interference in Hong Kong’s affairs, or even the basic contradiction between a one-party regime and a multiparty democracy. The Chinese state, built on a centuries-old paradigm of political order, cannot cope with intergovernmental conflict. Modern democracy is based on division,...

The detention camps where the Chinese government has interned more than 1 million Muslim Uighurs serves a dual purpose. It not only oppresses what the Chinese government considers a troublesome minority on its western frontier but also serves as a lab for the development of surveillance technology by Chinese companies. China must export these tools as part of its plan to transform its economy into a world leader in technological development. “It’s not unusual that...

A rare protest has been held at one of China’s most prestigious universities after authorities dropped the phrase “freedom of thought” from the school’s charter and replaced it with a pledge to follow the Communist Party’s leadership. The changes at Fudan University in Shanghai, which is considered one of China’s more liberal institutions, came to light on Tuesday when the education ministry said it had approved alterations for three universities. The new charter said the...

… Money was leaving the country at a record clip earlier this year through unauthorized channels, according to analysts. That’s bad news for China, which needs to keep financial reserves high to maintain confidence in its markets. … The threat of fleeing capital stems from concerns about the country’s economy, which has been hurt by cooling domestic demand and a prolonged trade war with the United States. The People’s Bank of China also allowed the...

… These experts also soft-pedal another issue that is key to understanding the negative trajectory in U.S.-China relations: decoupling. “Decoupling” is a buzzword used to describe the process by which the United States and China have begun to separate their intensively intertwined economies. All of the authors decry decoupling as a strategic error, but they also assume that if the Trump administration decides to forego decoupling, then China will follow suit. This ignores China’s role...

… China has invested significantly in the region, and Fanell suspect that China has been cultivating development deals for a long time. Fanell noted that a guard at a gold mine recently purchased by Chinese state owned company in the Solomon Islands was wearing a uniform with China’s national flag stitched onto the shoulder. Fanell related his findings to a 2012 image found aboard a Chinese frigate. The image consists of a dragon’s head overlayed...

… To show their solidarity with pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong and their commitment to Taiwan’s self-rule, many consumers here are boycotting bubble tea chains that support the “one country, two systems” formula that China uses to rule Hong Kong and that it hopes one day to extend to Taiwan. “I deliberately came here today because it’s an independent Taiwan store and it doesn’t support ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Alex Shuie, who works in...
