Green Sunday: US-China Relations and the New Cold War
K.J Noh – Understanding US-China Relations in the Current Historical Moment From dealing with Covid, to mitigating global climate change, to managing global economic shifts, the most important factor determining the outcome of these critical issues is the nature of US-China relations. Yet, the US is clearly on a path towards conflict with China–“the US is already in the foothills of a cold war”, according to Kissinger–while analyses and news about this critical relationship in the MSM is saturated with misinformation, disinformation, and inflammatory propaganda. K.J. Noh will unpack the origins, players, forces, and risks in the current historical moment, the relationship with Anti-Asian racism, the prospects of war–hot and cold–, and what these outcomes could yield for the future of our planet. Last but not least, he will invite critical consideration about what conscientious and informed citizens can do.
George Koo – Treating China as an adversary is a lose-lose proposition Key talking points to be addressed are: (1) China does not have a history or policy of confrontation. (2) US deliberate policy makes no sense but is harmful to American renewal and return to greatness. (3) The essential elements to successful win-win collaboration
