If America was created for capitalism and liberty, the USSR’s founding idea was state control, of which slavery—or serfdom, as it is known in Russian context—was the inevitable result.
While we hoped freer trade with the West would lead China toward liberal democracy, the result has been an increasingly oppressive government.
Americans’ affections for and knowledge of their country need to be fed. The lovely new history ‘Land of Hope’ does so. Another new book, ‘Debunking Howard Zinn,’ provides medicine to those food cannot restore.
The lesson of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact must never be forgotten: fascism and communism are birds of a feather and culpable of some of the worst atrocities in human history.
America’s relative silence over the Hong Kong protests and the impending Chinese crackdown is deafening, and telling. It’s also dangerous.
What’s happening on college campuses in Australia and New Zealand is starting to pop up in the United States as well. The U.S. government needs to learn from Australia and New Zealand’s experiences.
China’s state-run media hid the Hong Kong anti-extradition protests until things turned violent, a ploy eerily reminiscent of the infamous 1989 protests.
The trade war between China and the United States isn’t a conflict that will remain confined to the economy. It’s a risky play in a new Cold War.
The current communist regime’s oppression of Christians and other religious minorities reminds us that religious persecution remains a life-and-death reality in mainland China.
A game where only one side plays by the rules is rigged. We have now locked ourselves in an embrace with a corrupt regime, and it has not been to our benefit economically or morally.

Tiananmen was in 1989, when America had embraced the People’s Republic with the belief that economic liberalization would lead to political liberalization.
1989 will probably go down in history as the year China’s youth lost their idealism. People lost interest, or perhaps hope, in politics. Money is now the name of the game.
Every so often, a film shows the depth of communism’s personal costs in a poignant and beautiful way. So it is with ‘Cold War,’ a masterpiece from Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski, nominated for three Academy Awards.
