Well you are in wrong thread.

This is not about added tariffs or trade wars, but the overal long- ...

In the past few decades China's economic growth has dwarfed that of the USA.
And now you want to argue that the western model is superior to the Chinese model in long term growth.
Where do you keep your crystal ball?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

We had not discussed superiority of any system, until you came in with your keyboard blazing.

Our discussion before your participation (and attemps afterwards) highlighted the key differences in these systems, and only you again started this competition to justify your existence.

So you don't care about which system might be better at certain things.
I wonder who is idly pecking away at their keyboard then.

All systems have their pros and cons. We were discussing those pros and cons, without declaring winners.

Understanding is more important than winning, but since you are American, I forgive you.

So how can you reconcile your previous statement in this thread ""China practises much more protectionism than almost any other country"" with the simple fact that the USA started the tariff war?
Tariffs are nothing more than taxes imposed on free trade to rig markets.

China limits free trade and investments in the country (and beyond) not by taxation, but policies, bureaucracy and red tape.

Tariffs are about trade wars, but they are only small piece in overall protectionism that a state can exercise.

Very few contries allow foreigners and foreign money to operate completely freely, but in China the restrictions are bigger and wider than almost anywhere else, and certainly in comparison to USA.

Well that's far less wordy than most of your posts but you give nothing to prove any of your very general statements.
Please give some examples of policy, bureaucracy, and red tape to  backup your rhetoric.
