Liberty vs Communism

Liberty, happiness, and pursuit of justice are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. ferociously fought the former Soviet Union with a view to toppling communism; it played a great role in the emancipation of millions who have been victims of oppression and suppression. The collapse of communism in the former U.S.S.R brought about the birth of a dozen democracies in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa. With the end of multi-polarity and bipolarity, the U.S. remains the undisputed unipolar power or hyper-power in the world today. Many historians attribute China to have a history of warmongering in the past but that is not the case. Two powerful forces that wrecked havoc in the world, the Manchu and Mongols, were not Chinese, but were people of different ethnic group. America’s problem with China is not about China’s rise as a power; instead, the problem lies with China’s political ideology which is communism. At present China remains a strategic partner and not a rival of the U.S. China has a long way to go before it overtakes the U.S. economically. A democratic China is in the interest of her neighbors, the U.S. and the world. China’s rise as a global power is only possible with the demise of communism that is holding back its majesty.
