Cadence Column: Asia, June 15, 2020


The West and China just won’t back down from each other. China will no longer try to work through former Mayor Han of Kaohsiung to reunite Taiwan against the will of 23 million people. America wants to put new missiles in China’s back yard and every ally has turned down the offer except Taiwan, who … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, May 11, 2020


China must brace itself for war. Regardless of any plot from America being true or false, how Beijing handled Wuhan—or rather mishandled—will not be overlooked by the free world. Regardless of how different governments handled the outbreak, the West will see an outbreak that wouldn’t have happened if China had followed the same forthright standards … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, March 23, 2020


China’s in trouble—deep trouble. America pauses with the same hush of silence that swept the country from the outskirts of Washington to New Orleans in 1812, gathering around the radio in 1941, or staring at the same TV images on repeat in 2001. While America pauses and reflects, China accuses, taunts, and threatens, as if … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, November 11, 2019


Hong Kong has presented the world with the ethical question of confronting bullies. Say there is a bully at school who quietly eats whosever lunch he wants, stealing anyone’s homework he wants, until one day someone says something and the bully gets violent. In theory, most people agree that the bully started it. But in … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, October 7, 2019


Hong Kong has declared independence! On Friday, October 4, thousands peacefully gathered in Ma On Shan at New Hong Kong City Centre and read aloud a manifesto. This manifesto included basic arguments similar to the US Declaration of Independence, along with basic steps for a provisional government until the new government takes over. In the … Continue reading

An open letter to the Chinese Communist Party concerning press freedom in Hong Kong


Dear Chinese Communist Party, I’m not one of those Americans who thinks the way we do things in ‘Murica is always better than the way others do them, but when it comes to propagandising and controlling its population…well…USA #1!. Comparing the elegant sophistication of the US authorities to the brutishness of the Chinese is like … Continue reading

China: Post-plenum blues?


The third plenum of the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) central committee, which concluded on November 12th, has left many observers disappointed. After months of efforts by the senior leadership to promote the meeting as a major reform landmark, its final report came as something of a let-down. However, it was broadly in line with … Continue reading

New Chinese agency to ‘manage’ social unrest


The ruling Chinese Communist Party said it would establish an agency to “manage” growing social unrest, as part of a set of reforms largely focusing on the economy. The new “state security committee” will tackle social instability and unify other agencies in charge of increasing security challenges, both foreign and domestic, the Central Committee said … Continue reading

China and USA: The Xi Jinping-Obama Summit


Though not a ‘state’ visit, Chinese President Xi Jinping’s first visit (June 7-8, 2013) to the US as President has been described by the US as “unique” and “enormously important”. The Summit received close international attention, particularly because of the new Chinese leadership’s demonstrably increasing assertiveness including in the Asia-Pacific. Beijing declared that Xi Jinping … Continue reading

China: What the CCP can do for you!


Imagine a poster with headlines that read: “What the CCP can do for you!” It would capture all of the utopian Chinese communist promises from the early years of the civil war propaganda, through the first series of the five year plans and redistribution of property. Add that to the Great Leap Forward; skip past … Continue reading

Will China soon become a democracy?


The Chinese are getting richer – but not necessarily democratic. Hu Jintao, the outgoing President of the Republic of China, has had few surprises in his farewell address. The core message was: continued rapid economic growth and one-party rule. And by 2020, the average income is doubled. Will the Chinese Communist Party manage to continue … Continue reading

How to be a Chinese, by a Chinese person


A complete guide on how to be a Chinese I was talking to my boyfriend about how I liked my new life in the UK and the roasted, boiled, mashed and baked beans. “I feel like an English”, I said . “That is good,” he said. My boyfriend, an Australian, spent the last 12 years living … Continue reading

China and the CCP in the next decade


As we approach the upcoming leadership transition at the Chinese Communist Party Congress on November 8, the trend in China news and reporting is decidedly negative. In addition to a focus on the Bo Xilai scandal, East China Sea standoff, and the slowing economy, there has been an uptick in doomsday reporting on China. The … Continue reading

Murder, sex and lies: the biggest scandal in the history of China’s communist party


On the 26th of September, the state news agency Xinhua, published an official account on the investigation on Bo XiLai, the ex-communist party leader of Chongqing (a Southern Chinese city with a population of more than 28 million). In the report, Bo is accused of “bribing”, “involvement” in the murderer of British Businessman Neil HeyWood and “sexual relationships with many woman”. In China, such … Continue reading

China is not a functioning meritocracy


Two months ago Professor Daniel Bell of Qinghua University wrote an article in the Christian Science Monitor about what American democracy could learn from China’s one party rule. The focus of his piece is on the positive values of meritocracy in a one-party system versus the flaws of modern American democracy. There are a plethora … Continue reading

Chinese communist party’s four perils according to party birthday editorial


People’s Daily, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s mouthpiece, published an editorial on June 30th to mark the 91st anniversary of the founding of the CCP. Usually, the CCP takes such an occasion to give important instructions to its members and the Chinese people. In spite of the CCP’s growth into a huge party with over … Continue reading
