With China’s increasing dominance in the South China Sea, it is becoming clear that the superpower is more about authoritarianism and bullying than playing by the rules.
The Chinese government owns a series of online and offline media outlets to spread misinformation & propaganda on a global scale.
China has come to believe that its brand of nationalism is the only right one.
In 2002 and in 2020 during two disease outbreaks, China has proven to the world that it will not do anything to become a responsible global power.
China’s huge propaganda machine now feels mandated to lecture the world on anything and everything. And the authoritarian tone it is using to do so is a genuine cause of worry.
