I wonder if people fear a powerful China because of social conditioning. I suppose the last 100 years has thoroughly convinced many people that Europe
is a separate continent from Asia and Europeans are in no way related to the rest of Asia; thus a powerful Asia is not in your best concern and that
Europe is the center of the Universe. So, if Europe and the West don't control the world everything will suck.
For most of History China was foremost among the world powers, since the collapse of the Imperial Qing just 98 years ago did China stumble a
bit...China's reemergence was inevitable. Without a powerful China would Europe have even emerged from the dark ages?
The end occured over 3 years ago...many have been spared from what it is that they fear. For the ones of you who's fear is justified...quit upsetting
