Peace

It is the most important topic on earth: world peace.

What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children–not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women–not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.

— John F Kennedy (1963)

  1. Seems to me JFK’s words apply well to the sort of goals China and the CPC have embraced in setting policy. To no avail: it is pretty clear that from here on out, no matter what the Chinese say or do, they will be demonized by the most influential parts of the U.S. and European political and military establishment
