  1. American friends: the Chinese people are friends of the people of western countries, not enemies! The Chinese people never take the initiative to be enemies with others. Your media reports on Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong are quite different from the facts. I suggest that you come to China more often, visit Xinjiang, Tibet, and the beautiful mountains and rivers of China to really understand the Chinese people’s living and working in peace and contentment! In addition, your understanding of “communism” is distorted. The best realistic version of a real communist society is Australia. Don’t you yearn for it? There is no war, no turmoil, no hostility, all ethnic groups live in peace, and the power transition never leads to riots. The transition from American capitalism to communism is only the result of the demand for peace, democracy and freedom.

      I agree with 99.999% of the things you said except for Australia being a place with no turmoil. That is wrong. Very incorrect.
