People’s Daily: China Must Increase Its Political Power

On October 20, 2012, People’s Daily published an article titled, “The Political Attraction of China’s Rise.” According to the article, “China’s ultimate goal is to rise as a world power, leading human civilization into a new realm. To reach this goal, however, the accumulation of economic power and military force is not enough. China must increase its political power.” The political power here refers to “democracy with Chinese characteristics,” which “has absorbed both Marxism and liberal democratic values.”
