Confronting Chinese Communist Party Aggression


Published January 5, 2021

Despite the long-held belief that China would liberalize its economy and political system, the Chinese Communist Party has stuck to an ideology and system that stifles human freedom. Free and open societies must work together to prevent China from exporting its authoritarian model throughout the world by promoting the ideals of liberal democracy.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How has the People’s Republic of China circumvented international rules to achieve “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation?”
  2. Why is it important that we protect individual rights as we counter the aggressive authoritarian model of the PRC?
