Re: On the other hand...
"The past looks just as dark. While having removed elected governments all over the world, their typical supplement were puppet fascist dictatorships.
I'd say, it's rather obvious who the real pestilence is and has been. I don't expect much to change there in the foreseeable future either."
Sorry, who are we talking about here? I guess you mean the US, because you used fascist, but remove that word and you could be talking about the Soviet Union, the British Empire, the Roman Empire, Charlemagne, the Ottoman Empire, the Mongol Empire, etc.
That in the 1960s and 1970s the Chinese Han Empire was only busy slaughtering people in its own borders, rather than in other countries, shouldn't really matter too much. Once they've finished their cultural genocide of the Uighurs (1m in concentration camps, if you haven't noticed) who do they come for next?
China also has a long history of mass slaughter; just because they didn't attack places you care about, doesn't mean they won't next time.
Look up the history of the kowtow. While you are at it, you might want to look up the history of the Chinese Empire, and how it treated other countries (all other countries, not just those in its empire) for hints of what lies behind the mask. You get the odd hint of it when, as punishment for Canada following its own legal system, China kidnaps a few Canadians and decides to kill another.
Be of no doubt, if China is the new boss, it will be very different to the old boss.
