??doctrine in the economic sector to pursue GDP, GDP for the politicians to the reality of performance indicators, the kind of wealth creation myth featuring movement is in full swing across China. In the “first”, “second” gorgeous appearance, 22% of China’s primary myopia, myopia over 50% of high school students, college students myopia is more than 70%; in behind the rapid development of urbanization, China’s strategic hollowing and environmental degradation.
appearance of this look, do not re-thinking the inner bubble, but also spread to the academic community, and ultimately affect the number of major things objective and rational analysis. Country after another there are some research papers, gold-plated silver to China’s development, to create a false illusion of people, and the country and the people.
especially in military terms, but also to put an end to this illusory power. Economically, China has become a huge economy in the international financial sector to play a pivotal role; but in the military, if you want to think that we have not far away from the United States, it would be wrong. That military strength, strength that industrial and technological strength. U.S. military in the world, it is the United States aerospace industry, aviation industry, shipbuilding industry, information industry and biotechnology constitute a comprehensive national strength to dominate the global results. What a country can produce a tool able to produce what kind of weapons, the U.S. economy this strong form, forging dominates the army, is a natural. In China, real estate-based economy, this can only create economic form of military drill bunker. This is why China has no large aircraft, there are no major warships, no intellectual property rights of the computer industry, so the more advanced military combat platforms can only import large quantities, and many homemade weapons, some of the core technology platform engine must rely on imports of reasons.
the U.S. economy is driven by technological innovation, we are driven by government investment; the United States with Boeing aircraft and high-tech products in the arms make the world of money, we can only rely on their own land cover housing from their own people in the exploit. The longer this state continues, the greater the gap between national sides. Some scholars do not look at both the composition of GDP, and GDP per capita comparison is not only more total GDP figures, China’s GDP will exceed that of Japan second in the world, and it believes that China’s strength is second in the world. Take a look at arms sales record in 2008 on crystal clear: Despite the deep financial crisis, U.S. arms sales around the world are still nearly $ 40 billion, the first row for a few years, Russia is 80 million; China is more than 20 billion. This is the real strength and three military portrayal.
every Chinese people want a strong state as soon as possible, but this depends on the correct understanding of the laws of social development, and persistent hard work, not with opportunistic, but can not rely on self-deception to boast, swollen face charge fat. Although today’s China has made rapid progress, but there are problems inside and outside is hard to be optimistic. Internal situation, people generally had an idea; outside the United States for China to build the “C shaped” pocket has been to Central Asia, China around the crisis-ridden.
research department for a description of national development, the basic objective should be serious scientific attitude and spirit, to tell people the truth, rather than ranked “first” “second” this is no useful things to increase the sense of national pride. Ears can be stealing a bell, self-deception can not be deceptive. This illusory sense of power will paralyze people’s nerves, turning a blind eye on the imminent threat. ▲ (DAI Xu Peking University’s China Center for Strategic Studies Fellow.)
