Scott, how’s everything going? I can’t wait to tell you that I can read a little Chinese now. I know you like to ask people how they think about China. Well, it’s hard to vividly and accurately describe such a big picture. I came across an article that may provide you with general idea, although it’s a little bit outdated. I developed my opinion toward China from sources like the article, and from people like you. You are excellent, by the way. The article concludes that China is a “Rising power, anxious state”. I can see it’s a rising power, but I have no idea whether it’s an anxious state or not. If it is, where did anxiety come from?
Wish you a great Horse year!
Edward, you presented me with such a tough question that I’m not able to give you a perfect reply, at least for now. They feel anxious possibly because they are eager to catch up with the United States. As for myself, whenever I sense I’m growing anxious, I pray. Whenever I speak to God, I reap peace of mind.
May God bless us all.
