In response, he writes “Goodbye Asia.” Fukuzawa starts with a reason to subtly imply that imperialism is the only way to get China and Korea to start their own restoration. He states, “In my view, these two countries cannot survive as independent nations with the onslaught of Western civilization to the East.” Fukuzawa is assuming that Western civilization is superior to any other civilization. For this reason he is able to implicate that Japan should take actions against China and Korea similarly to the west as stated, “We simply follow the manner of the Westerners in knowing how to treat them” Since the first encounter of Japan with the West, Japan had been treated with inferiority with unfair treaties and taking their taxes. Black ships would come on their harbor and Westerners would demand to open up to the rest of the world. Fukuzawa suggests using the same force that the Westerners had used on them on China and Korea.
In conclusion, regulatory labour laws will not inhibit the growth and development of the global economy, despite the claims made by companies presented in Kernaghan’s video. Rather, by including these laws in international trade agreements, we have the potential of improving economies worldwide. Instead of continuing our “Race to the Bottom”, the world can reignite a race to the top by valuing humanity across
In contrast to the Ottomans, the Qing was unable to compromise with the West and Europe forced its way into China. However, both societies were influenced by Western methods, despite attempts to restore traditional ideology and campaigns by both Chinese

With the execution of the flier, the emperor ensures that no one will have the power to destroy the Great Wall of China, and (by turn) threaten his empire. In “The Flying Machine” the emperor sees no reason for equality. Equality is a potential danger to his empire, a possibility for someone to gain more power than the emperor himself. Punishment in “The Flying Machine” is used in literally the opposite way of “Harrison Bergeron”. While those in “Harrison Bergeron” believe that chaos must be prevented by equality, “The Flying Machine” argues that a strong regime is needed, in order to prevent
John Hay, A US Secretary, states “The policy of the government of the united states will bring about permanent peace…”. (US Intervention in China) The actions of the US will bring and keep peace to all of it’s allies and colonies. Because of us assistance, China is a global powerhouse today, with a great economy and plenty of trade. Not all nations, however, got only great benefits from American Imperialism.

However, Chinese side is not that willing to move into such platform. U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue is a good platform to discuss such problems bilaterally and improving into higher levels of diplomacy could lead to global and regional stability at unexpectedly good levels. Also human rights is still a huge concern between United States and China since Americans accusing China by underestimating human rights and various violations on political and social fields. These political problems are occurring due to different regimes between two sides and American misunderstanding of Chinese structure and lack of transparency between Chinese government institutions. For the transparency issues, White Papers of the People’s Liberation Army are very important.
The Chinese ruling class was instead opposed to the reform in China. The conservatives worried that changes in the reform will threaten themselves and weakened their power. The Hundred Days’ Reform is a great demonstration of how the power struggle resist the reform in China. The reform was short-lived, changes in political, social and military, economic system were proposed but were merely in paper due to opposition from the conservative Chinese official and the empress Cixi, who felt threatened by the changes, reformers backing the reform were then caught and executed. (Fairbank, Goldman, 1992) The reformation in China faced major opposition and thus the reform in China mainly focused in implementing western innovation and technology and little is changed in the more controversy political and legal
Chinese tradition is opposed to individual glorification and considers anyone who desires personal enhancement as a threat to collectivism (Pye, 1982). Chinese are more group-oriented, they value respect and friendship. China is more Egalitarian, meaning that they share power and share authority and spread the authority out evenly. They do not expect all power as some cultures do. Next is Performance orientation, which means when the community encourages and rewards good things done and completed.
