Thomas Hon Wing Polin — “Xi the Dictator:” a Myth Born of Ignorance and Prejudice

Don't believe what you read in Western media. Polin explains how China's neo-Mandarin political system actually works.

The problem with Western analysis of non-Western peoples is two-fold. 

First, the West assumes its exceptionalism and attempts to impose in on the world in order to fulfill "the white-man's burden" as a rationale, but the real agenda is permanent Western world dominance. The end justifies the means, even it involves destroying countries to "save" them.

Secondly and related, most Westerners cannot think outside the box of their own frame of reference and so they completely misunderstand other peoples and where they are coming from. The result is caricature rather than actual analysis.
