Misha and John address these developments, and also the massive Hong Kong protests, trade developments, and divisions within the US foreign policy community.

    Interesting discussion about the current divide in China experts. Good grief – Orville Schall (spelling?) is still with us. Glad to hear that some of the experts are conceding that China is a Communist country and therefore must be treated differently. I often listen to the BBC or even podcasts on Ricochet and elsewhere and hear people discussing China like its France or Kenya. No, China is a Communist country and, generally, cannot be trusted as we would another free country.

    Orville Schell; I read his last book after visiting China a few times. I think it was this book that described a wave in America’s attitude toward China; from high points like Nixon’s visit to outright fighting during Korea. I think we’re shifting to a much more pessimistic attitude. About time if you ask me.
