As of Thursday, the UK and Canada are the latest countries to join the diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics. This comes just days after the White House’s corresponding announcement. The United States cited the persecution of Uyghurs in Xinjiang as the primary reason for its action. But, are there other motives underlying its stand against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at this time? And why is there no mention of Peng Shuai accompanying this boycott being made in the name of human rights?
What is the relationship between the U.S. boycott of the Winter Olympics and Russia’s preparations to invade Ukraine?
The CCP has recently leveled heavy criticism against Western democracy. Alongside this, it has announced its own brand of “democracy,” i.e., “Whole Process Democracy.” How does the latter stand up to a basic democracy litmus test?
