修斯底徳陷阱（The Thucydides Trap）：一個被世界誤用的概念
The Thucydides Trap：A Misinterpreted Concept by the World
Greek historian Thucydides led to this famous prediction from the power struggle between the Athens and Spartans, that the rising and falling powers will always have to settle in the battlefields. Mankind has believed it for over 2500 years. And the whole world predicts that is what will happen between US and China. Think tanks, elites, politicians and ordinary citizens all seem to love this yet to be proven conclusion.
History has also suggested that sometimes the majorities get things wrong, so is this time. People seem to have forgotten the basic definition of rising and falling of nations. US rose to the dominating power after the WWII, leading the world affairs and setting the rules. Today it shows no evidence of being decayed. In contrast, it is still developing at a steadily fast pace. China however, through its amazingly developed economic miracles, has never really progressed in many key aspects as an advanced society. Some areas are actually going backwards. Maxim and communism ideology is a coffin. Lying to it are widely spread corruption in all layers, rogue government, torturous and murderous police state, unprecedented trampling on human rights and dignity, continued destruction to culture and education, etc. These are true inevitable failures, self conducted, to its own death. This is thus a struggle between civilization and evil. It is the final strike from an awaken justice power to put the zombie to its coffin, that have been abandoned by its designers, builders, purchasers and users.
While the great Chinese people, born to be diligent, hard working, intelligent, will be finally free, from the strange circles of thousands of years imperial dictatorship, forever depression, chained and fooled lives, to liberty and freedom. And China will truly become connected to the world, advancing the civilizations of mankind.
