From inertia to intention: A U.S. engineer's view on Chinese politics


Through the lens of a U.S. doctoral student deeply engaged in understanding the nuances of China's political landscape, Nick enables us to delve into a story that demystifies Chinese politics for an international audience and illustrates the essence of high-quality development in the context of Chinese modernization. Nick shares with CGTN Host Enoch Wong his fascinating journey into the heart of Chinese politics and policy, an area far removed from his academic discipline of electronic engineering at Tsinghua University. Nick's narrative offers a fresh perspective on the often-misunderstood concept of whole-process people's democracy in China, juxtaposed against Western electoral democracy's perceived shortcomings. Through his eyes, we explore China's deliberate and strategic societal design to achieve its developmental goals, a stark contrast to the inertia he observes in the U.S. back home. Nick challenges common misconceptions, highlighting the unity and alignment between the Chinese people and their government toward national progress. This conversation sheds light on China's new development philosophy, emphasizing high-quality development and the pursuit of common prosperity, enriched cultural life, and harmony between humanity and nature.
