"Summit for Democracy" is a glass house

1. ...the Biden administration plans a “Summit for Democracy” where it hopes to lecture the world in order to defend America’s democratic values which, according to the US government, are inseparable from advancing US national interests.

The December 9 to 10 summit will not look necessarily at the challenges faced by the US and its democracy, which is clearly in jeopardy, but rather seeks to point fingers at other countries and undermine domestic democratic processes there.

Reports suggest that while most SADC countries have been invited to the summit, Zimbabwe, eSwatini and Tanzania have been left out. US Foreign Affairs officials refuse to comment on how each country was selected for invitation to the summit. We can only read a divide and rule strategy being implemented by the US.

The US would do well to pay attention to fixing its own political system before attempting to lecture the rest of the world about democracy. As the saying goes, those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The US governance system has been glaringly exposed by Trumpism and the January 6 uprising....

Just as the Americans were not satisfied with being colonies, they must know that the people of the world, especially the global south, will not tolerate their continuous interference in our domestic issues. Like them, we will rise and reject American imperialism as they, and my grandparents, rejected British colonialism.

2. If America's so-called democracy is really a "weapon of mass destruction" as branded by China, the US would certainly not hesitate to use it against all enemies. Instead, China should point out that America's false democracy could be compared to a glass house, and the two-faced gas-emitting White House incumbent's “Summit for Democracy” to throwing stones. :)

In this regard, I agree partially with Tom Cotton Brain's suggestion that "Chinese students should be studying Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers", because it would provide China with sufficient experts in the English/American language and cultures to win its geopolitical life-and-death struggle against America and US allies.

As pointed out by Sunzi, the famous ancient Chinese warrior/philosopher in the “The Art of War” about 2,500 years ago: "Know yourself, know your enemy. A hundred battles, a hundred victories."
