China’s ethno-imperialism, and European ethno-imperialism…

CNN:

China has unleashed the nationalist genie. Beijing may regret letting it out of the bottle

CNN is misleading people and smearing nationalism because what China has unleashed is ethno-imperialism. True ethnic nationalism is the most anti-imperialistic ideology:

From a purely ethno-nationalistic perspective it’s nothing wrong with considering China to be a part of Taiwan and Hong Kong, because Taiwan is 95% Han Chinese, and 92 % of Hong Kong are Han too. But the occupation of Xinjiang and Tibet is imperialism, though European occupation of the Americas and Siberia is also imperialism. So is Arab expansionism when Islam spread east and west. Humans like to be imperialists it seems.

But two wrongs don’t make a right. As long as Xinjiang is not open to all journalists one should assume that a genocide is going on. After Mao, CCP doesn’t deserve the benefit of the doubt. And that is unfortunate, because I admire ancient Chinese culture and have learned a lot from it. On the other hand, I don’t trust that Western corporate media are unbiased when reporting on China when we are in a Cold War 2.
