"In an incisive article last month, entitled: ‘When China Leads’, Kevin Rudd, the former prime minister of Australia, writes: “The West, by and large, has no idea what awaits it as China continues its rise. The United States ... has become a global laughingstock.... Europe ... remains a rolling seminar on itself...”. He adds: “It would be reckless to assume, as many still do in the US, Europe, and elsewhere, that China’s transition to global pre-eminence will somehow simply implode....”


In such circumstances, Washington would be wise to consider seriously President Xi Jinping’s proposal to create “a community of a shared future for mankind”.

But as for this:
“a community of a shared future for mankind”.


The West has done this albeit with mixed results. We have invented the U.N.O. which has constantly been taken hostage by the members who enjoy dictatorial privileges in the UNO's security council. China is one of those.
