The other side to this is that globalization impacted China in a negative way. This side believes that globalization is not helping China grow, but instead it is harming many aspects of Chinese culture. For example, the modernization of the Chinese culture is causing many problems and the environment is suffering greatly from the pollution in the air caused by globalization. Every person has their own stance on globalization and how it has affected China. There is no right or wrong side to this stance.
This might prompt external ramifications. If China fears the influence of western values in regard to the position of his party, China might shift its policy to be more isolationist, harkening back to the time of chairman Mao. Although many in China already regard the United states to be imperialistic, this might exacerbate the problem and risk alienating the United States and other western countries. This would also not be a good economic strategy. China cannot seek to expand their economic growth while simultaneously striveing to keep the communist party strong through isolationist tactics.
Two of the unwitting victims are the words "politics" and "discrimination." The demise of valid uses of these words is sadly apparent when we discuss the issue of "free trade" with China. First, since negotiations with foreign governments can only justly and efficiently be done through representation of our own government, the issue inherently involves politics. There is no way of getting around it. Second, the decision is really whether or not to discriminate against the Chinese government fundamentally on the basis that we do not agree with their methods of controlling internal civil affairs.
The conflicts and problems that China suffered in the early/ mid 1910s were mainly due to the weakness of the military force, conflicting political organizations and disorder in society. On the other hand, I agree with the first part of the statement that the 1911 Revolution did not bring peace to China afterwards. In the following paragraphs, I am going to focus on explaining the reasons of emerging new problems in China and also illustrate my points on the factors of the 1911 Revolution which could not bring in peace to China related to the conditions of the country. It is undoubtedly the military weakness which was one of the main factors for bringing new problems to China, as she was attacked by other countries. Many members of Guomindang were from bourgeois class and the diversity of membership was not large enough.
In contrast, the wrongs suffered by the American colonists, who led them to rebel against British oppression, sink into lack of importance. Indeed, the question is inescapable: why was the Chinese reaction to the opium evil not more powerful? The inquiring philosopher finds the Opium War less starkly black and white. He may have concluded that the Anglo-Chinese armed conflict would have occurred, whether there was opium trade or not. The Western powers would have aggressed against China even if Britain had not, and that Chinese patriot today would have a sense of complaint even if Sino-Westerners relations had avoided warfare.
the kind of war on which they are embarking; neither mistaking it for, nor trying to turn it into, something that is alien to its true nature. This is the first of all strategic questions and the most comprehensive." Without understanding the true nature of the war prior to intervening in Vietnam, the US was unprepared to make effective strategic decisions. On the other hand, the North Vietnamese utilized the lessons of Mao to their advantage. They understood the use of a staged guerilla conflict against a stronger opponent would wear them down and by leading them into a protracted war the larger power will eventually lose the will to fight.

One of the consequences of the international community questioning China’s military capabilities is that the international community could potentially induce an unproductive arms race with China. If China is to participate in the race, China will have a weakened competitive position in the races of economic and intellectual strength. Secondly, China will lose the ability to use its army as a form of soft power therefore making it harder to believe that China can be a responsible state holder since it will seem like propaganda. In terms of China, the world is in a very exciting position with the promotion of the China’s model an alternative governing system is being offered.
However, China’s economic agreements with neighboring countries, the U.S. and Chinese trade deficit, Chinese foreign policies and military growth, and current U.S. Presidential relations with Beijing all play a decisive role in shaping these two military superpowers. China’s continued refusal to contribute positively to international trade negotiations and constant challenge to their current World Trade Organization (WTO) status places these agencies in a serious state of jeopardy. China is also hurting the global trading system by supporting the creation of a loose but potent Asian trading block. China has difficulties in accepting the terms of membership into organizations which already exist such as the WTO and International Monetary Fund (IMF).

President Clinton used 'some of the harshest American language against China for years' to tell the Chinese leaders that their state of human rights was 'thoroughly unacceptable'. Britain on the other hand approached the situation delicately, desperate not to offend the Chinese and provoke conflict. Blair, who visited Chine in October 1998, said 'persuasion and dialogue achieve more than confrontation and empty rhetoric'. Britain's main motive for such delicacy was it's fear of China's discontinuing their trading rights. However despite this fear Britain still felt it necessary to take action, as they too agreed that China's standard of human rights was inadequate.
China had created the Great Wall of China with the intentions of not wanting contact from the outside countries. The problem for China arose because the Chinese didn’t notice how the world was progressing. The Chinese didn’t overlook the other countries because they thought the other countries were unintelligent. Consequently, with other countries having modern weapons, inch-by-inch the small Europeans (France, Britain, Germany, Japan, and Russia) colonized some of China. China’s example was to be shunned.
