What if China was sole superpower rather than USA? This would make it much easier for China to help alleviate extreme global poverty. USA hasn't really failed, they just weren't trying. USA has been working to keep the global poor in poverty

""yet I wish the ruling few were a little more modest and recognized the huge costs to the people their past errors caused.""

It would be nice is the Europeans would admit to their past 500 years of worldwide genocide campaign after genocide
campaign in order to secure land and profits for their ruling few. But they will continue to whitewash their past as they
always have. Those educated outside of their schools know the truth and that's the majority of people worldwide.

China has resisted repeated attacks from the west over the last 200 years and the west points at China's hardships
in doing so as proof of China's errors.

The west wins the award for most arrogant, no contest.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

It depends. What I truly believe is that any person that does not have economic independence and has to work is a slave and in poverty. So to me a doctor or lawyer is in poverty. And a slave. A surplus capitalist that does not need to sell himself for a wage/salary is not in poverty - everyone else is. Then on another level a slave that earns $80k or more in a year can live a decent life with some level of security and be happy so anything under $80k is in poverty. The thing is though that a slave really doesn't need a lot and most of them know what they are worth and it isn't much. You could bring it way down from $80k with the right propaganda. Around 25-35k and under is the best number for a nation like USA or Australia. It has to do with cost of living and income so I don't know what it would be in China. What I would like it to be is any person that needs any form of government assistance is in poverty but in a place like Australia the entire population is mooching from the state is some way or another. Poverty and extreme poverty are different things. You could call extreme poverty poverty and say that no western citkze  is in poverty and this would be good. Extreme poverty is not having enough to cover basic needs like food and shelter - but also not having enough to participate in and contribute to society/state.

Most families in the uk who are dependent on the government , can not be classed as living in poverty. A free modern house with bills paid for, and around 40k a yr on top of that if you have kids. They are laughing at the singles who are slaving away supporting themselves on 17k a year in fast food shops or labour work.
