Signing the Declaration of Independence, 1912 (Library of Congress) As both nations celebrate recent anniversaries, it’s worth looking at why the U.S. wins out.

This July, both America and China have celebrated anniversaries important to each respective nation: America marked the 245th anniversary of its independence, and China marked the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

China celebrates the immense progress it purports to have made in recent decades: lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty, developing unmatched manufacturing capabilities, building a modern infrastructure, as well as making rapid technological advancement in 5G communication, high-speed railways, space exploration, and other areas. As expected, the government-run Chinese media delivers all the credit to the CCP.

In America, by contrast, we see a totally different picture. A few days ago, the Olympic athlete Gwen Berry turned away from the U.S. flag during the national anthem. The Biden administration canceled South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore fireworks celebration in front of statues of our great presidents. Instead of promoting patriotism, the Biden administration, through the Department of Education, is supporting efforts to indoctrinate our children with critical race theory, which baselessly claims that there is widespread systemic racism against black and Hispanic Americans in modern American society, requiring extensive government redress. Perversely, our non-government media supports these and other government efforts, joining the Biden administration in dwelling more on “social injustice” in America than on American patriotism.

But as someone who escaped Communist China and now lives in democratic America, I want to tell you that neither the Chinese media nor the American mainstream media are telling you the whole story.

The Chinese media do not tell you about the horrendous atrocities and extreme poverty created by the CCP in the first 30 years of its reign. Guided by the Marxist
