  • Published on Apr 1, 2015
  • The former prime minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd is also a longtime student of China, with a unique vantage point to watch its power rise in the past few decades. He asks whether the growing ambition of China will inevitably lead to conflict with other major powers - and suggests another narrative.

    I basically believe most everything bad that both the Chinese and American governments say about each other. It reminds me of two children who are always bickering and stirring things up but trying to point the finger.

  • Brandon A. English

    Watch a video with George Friedman and he says China is declining. Watch a video with Kevin Rudd and he says China is a waking lion.

    If China is so great like what he is saying, why are the Chinese running away from their motherland, living and working in other countries like the US; EU ; Japan; South Korea?? Even in countries like Vietnam and Philippines?? In Tokyo and South Korea alone, there are over 3 million Chinese working in gov offices; constructions; roads; restaurants; coffee shops; hotels etc..95% of the convenient store staffs in Japan are actually Chinese. So, if you are economically one of the most powerful countries in this planet, why would your citizens be grabbing those low paying jobs competing with the locals of those respective countries, not to mention away from home?? Another question is, North Korea has been the closest allies of China. For 3 generations, look at how North Korea is doing today. Isn't that clear enough? haha..You simply can't believe in everything you hear. Everyone in this planet knows Chinese are well known for showing off and their propagandas. For all you know, this dude may actually be being paid up by Chinese making these propaganda videos boosting China... Btw, buying people up is also a typical Chinese strategy. Good luck !

    The tanks at a demonstration and reported 10.000 dead shocked the west but dumping opium by the boatload in China was abysmal ,yes boats of ice now come from that direction our way so it goes back and forth just human nature to a degree ,I hope America can hand over the senior role gracefully taking say a scholarly position perhaps ,imagine if China really got it right with Hong Kong ,then Taiwan, Phillipines,even Japan joined the fold then focussed on developing,Thailand ,Korea s,Vietnam into powerhouse economy's all feeding each other ,with all these topics these days remember 100 nukes loosed =dust nuke winter for years only 1% living underground any chance how about the international space program never hear of it anymore ,educated people steer the boat this way ,space ,cancer , sustainable energy food etc

    I was always a sucker for rhetoric.
    An enlightened point of view, thanks Kevin, but I have no faith in the American administration - their combination of capitalist greed and religious lunacy does not bode well for a sensible outcome.
    The last thing I bought from America, a few years back, was a banjo -- a good solid professional instrument.
    Chinese banjos are now appearing here in Spain, and the quality and price are amazing.
    My double-bass is Chinese, as is my tenor sax, and the same applies.
    I can't afford to buy American anymore, and for many reasons I prefer not to.
    America wants to dominate the world -- China wants to sell us stuff.

    The problems are never from the people, but from the so called leaders. Political leaders need excuses to control their constituents. Through human history, the best excuse has always been the competition for survival..... tribal survival, national survival, cultural survival and racial survival. We have conquered most of these survival mentalities through thousands of years of human development and wars. We are at the last stage of conquering racial differences..... the last residual excuse for political leaders. As long as the chinese and the west consider themselves as competitors for survival on this planet, there will not be peace. Frankly, we all have to realize that cancer kills chinese as much as it kills Americans, Australians or Africans. Where do the political leaders stand on that?

      I quote Mao: "Power comes from the barrel of a gun".
      Given that statement and its pertinence to the Chinese Communist Party how do you suppose the Chinese view those who do not use raw power- as in realpolitik raw power being military might to rule? The Chinese view them, rightly , as weak and ripe for exploitation.
      The only respect China understands is a rifle butt in the face.

    Didn't hear anything about China being a repressive state. Organ harvesting is a multibillion dollar a year industry in China where they match organs of political and other prisoners with Westerners, who gladly pay. They keep these "donors" alive with machines to harvest all their organs. Very barbaric country. Ask Hong Kong people who are scared stiff right now. China, the surveillance state. Open your eyes Kevin.

    Rudd - the consummate CCP propagandist. with credentials that could enable him to sit even in the CCP Party Congress incognito , speak in the War College as if he is Australia's trusted statesman. He speak in think tank institutions with credentials as head of Asia Society (really a CCP propaganda machine). Why is that I feel like he is China's apologist and China's public information mouthpiece. Listen to his speech in Oxford College sometime between 2015-2-16.

      @Buro Dackel Compared to most Western European friends, Chinese are hard to be brainwashed, either from Chinese media or from the Western's. Btw, the history is the past. Currently China and Russia are close brothers. Nothing can separate these two countries. History is past. Hating and killing cannot be brought to offsprings forever because both countries are great countries. Please DO NOT try to make any dissension between these two countries. You are not Russian, what you do is to make conflicts between these two countries.

      Give you a free education: when China already occupied the east Siberia, Russia was still at the European part. Tsardom of Russia massacred thousands of Chinese in Northeastern China, so called "Blagoveshchensk Massacre". At that stage, Tsardom grabbed Sakhalin Island and the outer hinggan mountains region from China and also grant Northwestern area loss for China.

      @Castor Sun Invading a country is not defense- it is offensive. Super drought and natural disasters explains how Mao killed millions other than calculation and incompetence? USSR had every reason to send tanks to their own northern border- there are 100 million Chinese south of it now who are brainwashed into thinking it should belong to China. Right now there Russian Tochka and Iskander ready waiting on the Chinese border. Any nation has the sovereign right to engage in drills without the permission of a bordering nation. They argument of pre-emptive defense is false.

    • Castor Sun
      Castor Sun 18 days ago +1

      @Buro Dackel You should read carefully about true history. For Vietnam, only once. That was defense. At that age, China suffered super drought and natural disasters. Also USSR and China relationship became intense. China had no reason to attack other counties at that age. USSR sent hundreds of tanks and amored vehicles at North boundary of China and Vietnam even invaded Chinese Guangxi Province. Where you come from? Will your country doesn't care about neighbours invade you? Of course, self-defense war initiated! In the recent 30 years, no war related with China. How about your country?

      Nope past behvaiour is the ebst preictor of future bhaviuour. China attacked Vietnam twice. It attacked the Soviet Union and a damn shame for everyone globally, the US warned it would retaliate if USSR launched nuclear strikes on China. Had USSR struck China we would not have this Chinese problem and likely North Korea would be solved.

Instead of thinking in terms who's superior and trump others, perhaps realising that working together is the only way ahead. The Chinese are not so proud and confident about dominating in the world of science etc. What was stated in the Made in China 2025 isn't the Chinese ambition. We in China have been thinking in terms of being a student of the west. Don't let us down. Teachers usually understand better than students, and good ones are patient.

    He misunderstood his Chinese name. The word '克' has many meanings in both Classical Chinese and Modern Chinese, such as 'can / be able to', 'overcome', 'conquer', 'restrain', 'embezzle' and 'gram'. The meaning 'can / be able to' is rarely used in Modern Chinese. So I think Kevin's teacher wishes he can be a literary person. 'conquer' or 'conqueror' makes no sense here.

      Aren't words just symbols and not the actual that. I would say the meaning Kevin has given to himself is peaceful and compassionate by his actions. The first barrier for peace between China and the west is language. Eliminate the language that the manipulative brain uses and accept the language of the heart which is pure love and action and compassion.

    Great work from a great man..Cheers Kevin Rudd...but I think leave Climate change issue out of it...it is conjecture & re this issue almost immaterial.

      Agreed. Anyhow, per capita the US is by far the biggest CO2 emitter.

    This is the best presentation about China that I have ever heard. Kevin Rudd, what you did in Australia for the first Australians was as credible as you are. Thank you.

    WW1 1914 we were not integrated in a global economy anywhere near what we were in 1920,30 WW2, 50,60,70 onward to today where were at a level of globalisation with the infrastructure of the internet and dependcies on each other like never before
    China and US war on the level of a World War is true fantasy. That said skirmishes and tension is and always will be inevitable

      That's not true, all US has to do is play the Taiwan card and a hot war will break out. As we speak US is planning on docking carriers on Taiwan.

    Well mate , your a Fabian Socialist! , given China govt started building islands and using Debt Diplomacy on Fiji and Vanuatu , pretended to be a private enterprise to lease Darwin Port I’d say it’s on! Nobody taking a leap of faith with communism.. ask the people of Hong Kong, they know them better than you! And given the USA has 9 supercarriers and 10 wasp aircraft carriers (19!) verse chinas 2 I’d advise the Communist to step back quickly..USA economy is almost twice the size still and it will crash the Chinese economy with Tariffs if they don’t back off, and it’s already started.
