The True Test of Democracy – The People's Well-Being

The proof of whether a particular system is good or bad can only be determined by the impact it has on the welfare of the population.

True Democracy Should Work

As the U.S.-organized “Summit for Democracy” further polarizes an already divided world, democracy has become a buzzword eliciting heated debate. A term derived from ancient Greek, democracy means “rule by the people” or “sovereignty of the people.” Getting at its true essence, Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out, “Whether a country is a democracy or not depends on whether its people are really the masters of the country,” when addressing a central conference on work related to people’s congresses in October 2021. As an embodiment of the political advancement of human society, democracy has evolved and been practiced for thousands of years and is still evolving with no universal yardstick agreed upon internationally.

Resolving the South China Sea Dispute by Building SCS Community with Shared Future

The US considers China as its biggest geopolitical challenge in the 21st century. After the end of the Cold War, the US became the sole superpower in the world and its strategic goal, which has not changed over the years, is to ensure that there would not reemerge any adversarial power that is strong enough to threaten US global leadership.

Ringing in the New Year with Solidarity and Hope

With the arrival of the new year, there is only about one month to go before the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 are staged. The incessant din created by some countries in politicizing the Games has not thwarted the worldwide passion in and support for the upcoming sports event.

On December 10, 2021, the Central American country Nicaragua re-established formal diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China following breaking its so-called “diplomatic relations” with Taiwan.

The Omicron Variant and the Prolonged Pandemic

The hope that Christmas 2021 would provide a pre-Pandemic holiday comparable to 2019 is being cruelly undermined. A sense of foreboding stalks many European and other countries as the Omicron variant takes hold. The emergence and exceptional transmissibility of the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron, is adding further severe stresses to public health systems and hospitals in the United States, South America, Europe, the Indian sub-continent and parts of the Middle East. Fears are mounting that there will be a demoralising new wave of Covid-19 infections.
