Is the picture as terrible as the authors picture it? Is this merely sensationalistic hyperbole? Emphatically not! Are we faced with the choice of either succumbing to an expansionistic hegemony, or confronting it head on—even militarily, if necessary—so that we can protect our rights and freedoms? If we take their message to heart it seems that at least we need to stop looking the other way, hoping that things are not as bad as the facts clearly indicate. In the back of the book the authors present numerous steps needed to be taken by the United States and others to constrain and restrain China’s increasingly oppressive world ascendancy. Many of these ideas only serve to highlight how far China’s incursions have come and that believing the proposed remedies could be carried out is nonsensically unrealistic. No doubt the members of the Chinese hierarchy who may gain access to this book are having riotous bellylaughs about the authors’ presumptuous directives which they are sure could never see the light of day. Unfortunately, they may be right.
This book drives home how naïve America and most Western powers have been about China’s emergence from a primitive, backward, disorganized peasant society to a modern, sophisticated, ambitious and (it can justifiably be said) uncompromisingly ruthless power. In three decades the Chinese have proven how quickly and effectively a centralized totalitarian power structure can advance world-controlling ambitions. We ignore them at our own peril. The only long term solution--to which, regrettably, the authors do not give credence--is that the Chinese people over time can succeed in planting more and more seeds of democratization. Or, is that only adding one naivety to another?
