New the site this fortnight, an important recent essay by Jiang Shigong, "The 'Critical Decade' in the Sino-American Relationship: the 'New Roman Empire' and the 'New Great Struggle.'" Jiang is a Professor of Law at Peking University, a New Left Intellectual, and an important spokesman for the Xi Jinping regime. This essay attempts to do the same thing for Sino-American relations as his 2018 essay on "Philosophy and History" did for Xi Jinping Thought.
Two new translations on the site this fortnight. First, Chinese intellectuals discuss the Black Lives Matter movement in the US in the wake of the death of George Floyd (Xu Jilin, et. al., "Reflecting on 'Black Lives Matter'"); and second, Lin Yao's rejoinder to Xu and co. (Lin Yao, "I Beg to Differ"), a brilliant analysis of what political correctness really means, in the US and elsewhere.
Next time, back to perennial favorites, Cold War and/or covid.
