West 'Inhibits Political Diversity' Among Nations


Apparently bewildered by global applause for the decision to award imprisoned democracy dissident Liu Xiaobo the Nobel Peace Prize, this very defensive editorial from China's state-controlled Global Times argues that the United States and the West 'prohibits political diversity among countries.' Later, in apparent defense of its own authoritarianism, it continues, 'in some situations, the West supports authoritarian governments based on pure self interest.'

Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize.

For the West, the sum of $1.4 million is a fairly modest for sparking an ideological war with China, which is what it did by awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo.


It was bound to happen. If Liu weren't selected, it would have been someone else from China on the shortlist, which included Rebiya Kadeer [a Uyghur activist in exile in the U.S.], Hu Jia [activist on AIDS, land rights and democracy] and Wei Jingshen [legendary democracy activist and former Red Guard in U.S. exile].


The West will continue to target China in its ideological war. It seems that the Western way has to be the only way, and people around the globe must adopt Western attitudes. In the minds of some Westerners, even if China grows and develops into a highly advanced nation, it will still need to surrender to Western ideology.



The democracy that the West tries to export advocates freedom of choice. But why is it that while the West avidly heralds individual freedom, it prohibits political diversity among countries?


When it tries to expand its political system to other areas of the world, it looks like the West doesn't care about the individuality of other societies. It seems only to want total compliance and unconditional support from other nations, even if they have different views.


In some situations, the West supports authoritarian governments based on pure self interest.


China has adopted much wisdom from the West wisdom since its opening-up, but it refuses to be westernized. The rejuvenation of the Chinese civilization is its dream, and the more China learns from the West, the more confident it becomes in its own culture.


A rising China with different fundamental principles disturbs the West, which is beleaguered by deep economic woes. Discrediting China is a way to maintain the moral superiority of the developed world and, consequently, keep the Wests privileges and maximize the interests of the developed countries.

The Nobel Peace Prize is not a lone voice, but a part of a concerto supplemented by various NGOs, economic identities and international organizations orchestrated by developed countries. They hope to harass Chinas growth and press it to surrender its economic interests. They even hope that China will one day collapse under the Wests ideological crusade.


From Google threatening to withdraw from China earlier this year, to the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to a Chinese criminal, the ideological war against China is far from over.
