以下是他評析西方對中國態度的一篇文章 "就我所見" (As I See It)之摘要:
(5) 為了轉移注意，西方製造出一連串的謊言和誣衊。他們避談中國的脫貧，卻想像出中國的 "種族滅絕"。避談中國高鐵、電動車、替代能源、電子商務...卻誣稱中國 "偷竊智財權"。不談中國的社會經濟制度，卻誣指中國 "強迫勞動"、"強迫絕育"。不說中國對南海、香港和台灣的主權，卻稱 "侵略"。
(6) 這些 "對中國的暴打"(China bashing)，目的只有一個: 確使西方人民無法看到真正的中國。因為如果民眾知道真相，他們或許會產生和西方菁英不同的想法，也就是社會主義在求99%之人的福祉，而資本主義只在求1%之人的財富。

As I See It:
Why is it that the West is so preoccupied with China? The usual answer is that China's economic growth is challenging Western global hegemony which has held sway for at least 250 years. The Chinese military has also reached parity with that of the West, so it is no longer subject to Western intimidation and bullying. All that is true and reason for the West to want to savage China and portray it as the root of all evil.
But there is one other consideration that must be taken into account. It's not only China's economic prowess and military might that frightens the West, it is also China's success as a nation versus the West's failure.
Moreover, China has forged a society in which there is harmony between its different ethnicities in contrast to the systemic racism that characterizes Western society.
Western ruling elites and their media mouthpieces do not want to acknowledge the fact that China has eliminated extreme poverty while more and more of their own people descend into poverty. They do not want to admit that China has constructed a 21st century infrastructure while they lag far behind. They do not want to confront the fact that the Chinese people ⁹overwhelmingly support their government while people in the West have lost confidence in their own, they do not want to accept that China beat COVIDC-19 while they haven't, and finally they are loathe to accept the fact that a non-white nation has out performed them and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.
In order to deflect attention away from these truths the West has concocted a series of lies and slanders that allow them to deny reality. Instead of poverty alleviation the West imagines "genocide." Instead of the advances in HSR, EVs, alt-energy and e-commerce they focus on "IP theft," instead of a socioeconomic system that serves the people, they accuse China of forced labor and forced sterilizations. Instead of seeing China as defending its national sovereignty in the South China Sea, Hong Kong and Taiwan, it's called an aggressor.
All the China-bashing serves multiple purposes but ONE of the main reasons is to make sure that people in the West do not get to hear nor see what the real China is all about because if they did they may get ideas that the Western elites don't want then to have, such as socialism works for the betterment of the 99% while capitalism works primarily to enrich the 1%.
