From Mark Mallett: Of China

Of China


POPE Benedict warned before Christmas that the "eclipse of reason" in the West was putting "the very future of the world" at stake. He alluded to the collapse of the Roman Empire, drawing a parallel between it and our times (see On the Eve).

All the while, there is another power rising in our time: Communist China. While it does not presently bare the same teeth that the Soviet Union did, there is much to be concerned about the ascent of this soaring superpower.
