The People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of China, has criticized the United States as the “source of turmoil in the world.”
The newspaper on Sunday published three articles by Chinese scholars to analyze the causes of expansive and hegemonic moves by the United States from systemic, ideological and strategic perspectives.
An editor’s note on the page said that U.S. interventions are behind unrest and disputes in many places, including the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the South China Sea.
“The United States is keen to make messes in the world, cast shadows on order and stability in multiple regions and jeopardize peace and development in relevant countries,” the note said.
An article by Yang Guangbin, a professor of politics at Renmin University, pointed out that the “military-industrial complex,” which former U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned against, is “kidnapping U.S. domestic and diplomatic policy.”
The “military-industrial complex” naturally demands war and military expansion, resulting in the Iraq war, “Arab Spring” uprisings and growing tensions with Russia and China, Yang said.
Yang also criticized the United States for selling its ideology, which has brainwashed the elite in some non-Western countries.
“Countries that have followed American-style ’liberty and democracy’ are not turning into American-style states. Instead, their lives remain the same, or even become worse,” the article said.
Another article by Li Wen, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, noted that the United States’ eagerness to make trouble around the world is due to its “hegemonic anxiety.”
It is “to a large degree, a reflection of a twisted mentality of an empire moving downhill,” according to the article.
The scholar also denounced the United States’ measures to contain China by causing trouble in East Asia.
A third article by Lin Hongyu, a professor at Huaqiao University, said U.S. maneuvers in the Asia-Pacific region are just part of its overseas expansion and interventionist diplomacy to maintain its leading international role.
The article called on Chinese authorities to manage disputes between China and the United States in a constructive way and to build a new type of major-country relationship together.
