11:08 pm
the media is beating the drums of war as the world is being primed to regard china as a new enemy china's alarming creation of entirely new territory in the south china sea is one part of a broader military push that some fear is to challenge us dominance in the region. china is building and strips in the south china sea on disputed islands condemned by an international tribunals. this is now a flashpoint for war between china and america. what is not news is that china itself is under threat. these american bases form a joint news in circling china with missiles bombers warships all the way from a straight through the pacific to asia and beyond. i mean if you were in beijing

11:39 pm
perceived in the west well into the twentieth century. this is the distinguished historian we should feel joe writes white hundred five so to the white house speaking in the one nine hundred sixty s. perhaps china is too vast to be governed by mercy yet if chinese mind craves order they must be brought to recognize they are the biggest factor in the world is destroyed. and we must untangle the madness of their mind the most difficult task in the world is to reach the minds of men who'll make you. what what was really complaining about was the loss of a china but the imperial west could dominate and the to feet of general chiang kai shek who were these famously powerful christian wife mailing sume

11:41 pm
steams the last of western influence farewell to a century. even today it's difficult to understand the paranoia ignited by mouse revolution. as we look at china on the map we can see that china is the basic cause of all of our troubles in asia i believe that for the state or. if you meant that the. to be prepared for the puppy beneath. a chinese need at their own the united way. one of the myths about now is that he was an implacable enemy of the capitalist west.
11:42 pm
shanghai today is a prosperous international city still run by the communists at least. when i was last in china more than a generation ago the loudest noise was the tinkling of bicycle bells now just the streets were dark the universities were closed the chaos of the cultural revolution had given way to a great silence where exhausted was the freest comment. coming back the change was barely comprehensible. here in shanghai the freedom bears no comparison yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the state and challenge its power since i was last here millions of people
11:43 pm
of been lifted out of poverty many of them into an entirely new middle class this epic is still barely understood in the west or should that be wilfully misunderstood the truth is that china has matched america at cern great game of capitalism and that is one forgivable. one measure of china's new capitalism is the run rich list this league table of china's mega rich is published by rupert hogan warthe an old attorney in his chinese name is who run he's received many awards including china's man of the year. this year two thousand and fifteen it's probably been the most extraordinary year of wealth creation in the history of china again
11:44 pm
you know i've been doing this little fifteen sixteen years i've never seen a year like two thousand and fifteen you know normally for two hundred million pounds or three hundred million dollars we find eight hundred thousand people this year two thousand and fifteen is doubled they'll be more dollar billionaires know about in china than in the u.s. so the u.s. up until now has been the leader in terms of business. even the most successful business tycoons in the world. china two thousand and fifteen were voting in the u.s. so amazing. modern china is full of telling irony is not really use this museum that was once the house where mounties commerce secretly founder of the communist party of china in one nine hundred twenty one.
11:45 pm
today it stands in the heart of an exclusive fairy capitalist shopping district. when you leave the shrine to china's great revolution you are confronted by a surreal spectacle for right outside where the chinese communist party it was bone of the very symbols of capitalism stocks apple cars here. and down there perhaps the free markets the greatest triumph bottled water but in shoals you live beyond costing six pounds for a small bottle in my hotel. spin and his tomb if he was here i'm not so sure hidden history is always a key to the truth five years before his great communist revolution in one hundred
11:46 pm
forty nine mts sent this secret message to washington china must industrialize right now this can only be done by free enterprise chinese and american interests fit together economically and politically america need not fear that we will not be co-operative we cannot risk crossing america we cannot risk any conflict. mal received no reply. nothing has changed. mouse a tongue was looking to be a friend with the united states from the beginning mouse says i will go meet franklin roosevelt in the white house moll reaches out nine hundred fifty to harry truman he reaches out to dwight eisenhower his hand was tossed away. this old. but unity that might of changed history prevented was saved countless
11:47 pm
lives was lost because the truth of miles over true was was denied in the washington of the one nine hundred fifty s. . state department officials who had carried mao's messages were condemned done justly as communist traitors. everybody who knew my who spoke chinese was gone in the one nine hundred fifty s. the state department had no employees who spoke cheney it's resulted in us not having relations with the number one most populous country in the world in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine this man deng xiaoping became china's paramount leda he said socialism does not mean shared poverty.
11:48 pm
this was code for the most radical reforms since miles revolution. the return of capitalism to china but this time controlled by the communist party. to be riches glorious dane was reported as saying. america was now threatened by the emergence of a vast image of itself. this is one of the many very exclusive gated communities in shanghai where an apartment is one of the prizes of the new communism. i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things out paying the man who changed china. though in. really extremely. long.
11:49 pm
visionary the leader always exceed the long term strategic vision for his country for his people that chinese do you follow that path you know they're true this is really tradition from china's along history you look at even like mon he said we should suppose you could. supply. so they could didn't used to this. actually or many chinese have problems with the western media is this theory about china if you. contend with fear of hypes you missed so many things in the b.b.c. broadcast something they're happy to always mention this common is to dictatorship this autocracy not actually with this label you cannot understand this china as it is but if you watch b.b.c. c.n.n.
11:50 pm
or read economist and try to understand china it will be a failure it's impossible. multiple parties fight for political power and everyone voting on them is the only path to salvation for the long suffering that's. a shanghai entrepreneur educated in america and typical of a new confident outspoken political class in china there are a lot of problems but at the moment the chinese the party state has proven an extraordinary ability to change me i make the joke. in america you can change political parties but you can't change policies. in china you cannot change the party but you can change policies. so in a sixty five or sixty six years china is being run by one single party yet. the
11:51 pm
political changes that have taken place in china in the past sixty six years have been wider and broader and greater than probably any other major country in modern memory so in that time china seems to be communist patrol so well china is a market economy and survivor a market economy but it is not a capitalist country here's why there is no way a group of billionaires could control the politburo. the owners control american policymaking so in china you have a vibrant market economy but capital does not rise above political authority capital is not does not have in trying rights in america capital the interest of capital and capital itself has risen above the name of the
11:52 pm
american nation the political authority cannot check the power of capital and that's why america is a catalyst country but china is not this is the ironic title of a bestselling book by zhang leisure a journalist and critic who lives in beijing many americans imagine that the chinese people live miserable repressed her life these no freedom western ever that's not quite sure if you toss speak to many ordinary chinese people they will tell you that they feel that their life i quite free some five hundred million people being lifted off the poverty in some would say probably six hundred million people that's a great achievement. for many americans the yellow peril has never left and i think of the there's the fear about china of course there's the fear for
11:53 pm
china's rapid rise but it's also has lot to do. with china's. the label as the communists and states china subject of some modest compare where their weight they're not trying to run the world they're not even trying to run asia pacific i think they want to keep america from dominating the asia pacific so they have what they believe is their rightful place in asia pacific because alonso was asian long history in their size so their objectives are really modest compared with their capacity the world for new wealth in china and i often say this is this is the product of so far made entrepreneur school but is it not also the product of the exploitation of
11:54 pm
people at the bottom water known in china as migrants but they're not really migrants. if you really. go to port to this my woodworkers you will find quite surprisingly. over the past five to seven years they have experienced. greater increase there in the social groups china not a car society. but china is a class society. these are the homes of migrant workers people who build and service the new china. here it's not uncommon for three families to share one tiny flat.
11:55 pm
