In the West, we rarely hear from those on the Chinese left who broadly support their government, who don't openly advocate for Western-style capitalist democracy, who aren't some flavor of "dissident," usually elevated by Western media. And we virtually never hear what original insights they may have about American politics. This kind of intellectual gatekeeping is hugely counterproductive. With our translations of writings by Tù Zh«îxí (Chairman Rabbit) on U.S. electoral politics, by Jƒ´liú on the George Floyd uprising, and by Z«ê Qiú on the U.S. pandemic response, we aim to st…

Qiao Collective | mronline.org | 2020-12-12
On the domestic front, the U.S. propaganda machine mostly works instead to position China as this great, menacing oriental Other. We've seen this during the COVID-19 pandemic in Trump's rhetoric about the "China virus" and in Biden's attempts at one-upmanship.
