China and the Liberal Democracies: Managing Blowback


The Chinese Communist regime has made significant inroads within the policy systems of the liberal democracies.

But several of the liberal democracies are in the process of trying to rollback the negative effects of Chinese intrusion within our societies.

The Trump assault on the trade system and more specifically on China is the most visible but several other states are pursuing rollback policies of their own.

But there needs to be a more coordinated effort in order to succeed against the Communist power which has built its diplomatic appraoch on playing one state off of another.

We do not want to end up working like the Dream Team seen above trying to do a high five but not even able to do that.
