The Western media is regularly assailed with explanations of Chinese policies by those based in the Western system, but not by their Chinese opposite numbers maligning Western policies in public.

The Chinese know us very well, and non-ideologically. We do not understand them because our think tanks must first condemn Marx’s thinking. The Chinese are much more balanced in their appraisal of capitalism.

We do not understand their thinking. We do not understand that planning is at their core.
