You really confuse me. You distrust and are intolerant of some of the most gentle and peaceful people in the world, then you are so forgiving and tolerant of some of the most cruel monsters in the world. Can you explain that?
I’m aware of Chinese militarism and ethnic cleansing but this is in China’s own neighborhood. I don’t see how it is a threat to the West. However, it is true that Western influence in the world is not as strong as it used to be, and this is the West’s own fault.

Point 1: I’m just asking questions here.
No one has tried to stifle your speech. But no one has to agree with you either.
Point 2: China is not my enemy.
That’s a little short sighted, isn’t it? If you are an American living in America, China is very much your economic enemy.
They do not respect patents and steal everyone’s ideas and manufacturing methods and because they employ child labor and pay pitiful wages they can undercut American-made goods.
If you believe that buying “made in China” goods is beneficial for you personally, you do not understand the meaning of “made in America” and the economic benefits that brings to you.
This is why Biden issued executive orders to bring back “made in America”.
The President believes that when we spend American taxpayers’ dollars, it should support American workers and businesses. In his first week in office, President Biden signed Executive Order 14005, Ensuring the Future is Made in America by All of America’s Workers, launching a whole-of-government initiative to strengthen the use of federal procurement to support American manufacturing. To continue building on these implementation efforts and ensuring these ambitious goals aren’t just talk but action, the executive order established the creation of the Made in America office within the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
If you only think of what seems to benefit you personally you do not understand the concept of a democracy, where all people benefit from the development of wealth in one the richest nations in the world.
Do you believe that the nation’s resources belong only to the billionaires who treat the rest of the people who actually do work to produce goods as slaves, as they do in China?
Which is great. I think the question was, why are you merely curious about an autocratic oppressive world power, while being adamant about how to treat innocent young people trying to find there place?
What exactly is Westernization? Something like a multi-Ethnic Democracy?
If that’s true then de-Westernization means less Democary and the establishment of more exclusionary (Nationalist) Ethnic Totalitarianism?
Intellectualism is the mental perspective that emphasizes the use, the development, and the exercise of the intellect; and also identifies the life of the mind of the intellectual person. In the field of philosophy, the term intellectualism is synonymous with rationalism, knowledge derived from reason. Wikipedia
Indeed, what shall we replace intellectualism with?
From recent history it appears that “Ignorantism” is a preferred choice.
Especially if one owns an AR15. If you don’t understand it? Kill it!
