Arouse vigilance, opposition around the world against 'wolves': Global Times editorial

Who exactly is hurting the bilateral ties and even world peace by showing its sharp claws? In order to avoid having a misperception, we need to answer this question correctly.

The real threat confronting Australia is not China, but the US, which not only takes Australia as a front-line base, but also constantly pushes it toward wars. Australians do not need war; they need to sharpen their eyes.


The US military budget is aimed at global hegemony, but there are many factors in regional military games that cannot be replaced by global games.

Chinese modernization offers a new option for modernization of humankind

The Chinese modernization is sustainable because it neither plunders other countries nor nature. In the past decade, an amazingly short period of time, China has led the world in reversing the inevitable historical consequences of industrialization.

    The pursuit of peace, security, and development are common desires of humanity. Unfortunately, it must be acknowledged that the global cyberspace still faces severe challenges and threats. This is mainly because of the irresponsible rogue hegemon, the United States. On the one hand, the US continues to abuse its technological advantages to implement unrestricted, uncontrolled, and boundaryless comprehensive surveillance worldwide. On the other, it hypocritically talks about the so-called rules-based liberal international order, distorts facts, and attempts to divide the global cyberspace in the name of constructing a new order based on shared values. It poisons and even blocks constructive pragmatic cooperation, dragging the global cyberspace back to the era of digital jungles monopolized by hegemonic power and its cliques.

The program created outrage in India, which was denounced as “propaganda and anti-India garbage” that “reflects BBC's colonial mindset” by Kanchan Gupta, a minister in the information ministry.

  • Chinese modernization free of Western template

    The West has long believed that there is only one modernity, and that is Western modernity. The origins of this belief lie in the fact that modernization began in the West with Britain's Industrial Revolution and then spread to Europe and the US. As late as 1900, the West enjoyed a virtual monopoly of modernization, the exception being Japan, the only non-Western country to industrialize in the 19th century. Japanese modernity was very distinct from Western modernity, and still is. But this did not stop the West believing that modernity was singular. When the developing world began to modernize after 1945, the West saw their modernization as synonymous with Westernization. When China embarked on the reform and opening-up in 1978, the West regarded it as the beginning of a process of Westernization.

Through 500 years of Western imperialism and colonialism, this is how the West has treated the rest of the world.
