” Chas W. Freeman talks about the recent history of China, which, after the communist regime gave way to a softer form of mixed-market fascism thanks in part to negotiations during the Nixon administration, has become the world’s leading manufacturer and a major consumer market. Some Americans think this is a bad thing because it makes China a competitor with the United States for global hegemony. Freeman worries that this fear could lead to real conflict, and in the worst case, retaliatory nuclear conflict,” writes Scott Horton. You can find the post for this interview by going here.
