"In an incisive article last month, entitled: ‘When China Leads’, Kevin Rudd, the former prime minister of Australia, writes: “The West, by and large, has no idea what awaits it as China continues its rise. The United States ... has become a global laughingstock.... Europe ... remains a rolling seminar on itself...”. He adds: “It would be reckless to assume, as many still do in the US, Europe, and elsewhere, that China’s transition to global pre-eminence will somehow simply implode....”
In such circumstances, Washington would be wise to consider seriously President Xi Jinping’s proposal to create “a community of a shared future for mankind”.
