拜登想让我们相信,民主与专制是伟大的分界线。拜登的话只是政治宣传而已。真实世界要比这复杂得多。西方最大的问题是治理问题:西方的民主能不能实现?它曾经实现过。但在过去40年里,它已经严重失败。

将中国与美国进行对比。以经济治理这一重要的衡量标准为例,在1980年,中国的经济只占美国的5%。今天,它的国内生产总值比美国高出20%。中国经济的年增长率约为6%,是美国的两倍。由此可见,中国的经济治理已经远远优于美国。

或者以应对新冠病毒为例。中国有4,636人死亡;美国有837,773人;英国有150,634人。如果中国的死亡率像美国一样,中国将有360万人死亡。如果死亡率像英国一样,则有310万人死亡。这场大流行病是对治理的最高考验,而中国的治理一直在一个不同的层次中。

治理是关于国家的交付能力、人民的参与、社会凝聚力和社会纪律。如果西式民主不能实现,它将发现自己越来越被那些能够实现的社会所边缘化,尤其是中国。#拜登##治理##中美关系##民主#

Biden wants us to believe that democracy v autocracy is the great dividing line. This is just propaganda. The world is far more complex than this. The West's biggest problem is governance: can West democracy deliver? It used to. But over the last 40 years it has failed badly.

Contrast the US with China. Take economic governance, a crucial measure. In 1980 its economy was 5% of America's. Today its GDP (ppp) is 20% bigger. It is growing at around 6% pa, double the US. China's economic governance has been far superior to the US.

Or take the pandemic. China has 4,636 deaths; US 837,773; UK 150,634. If China's death rate was like America's, China would have 3.6m deaths. If like the UK, 3.1m deaths. The pandemic has been a supreme test of governance. China's governance has been in a different league.

Governance is about the ability of the state to deliver, the participation of the people, social cohesion and social discipline. If Western-style democracy can't deliver, it will find itself increasingly marginalised by those societies that can, above all China.
