One religion that is illegal to participate in under Chinese law is the spiritual practice of Falun Gong. A new movement, the Falun Gong grew quickly in China and globally, and was officially banned in 1999. The CCP claims the Falun Gong is evil, and should be destroyed humanely to save China. However, the Falun Gong is peaceful, and the Chinese government is the institution that tortures, jails, and abuses its citizens if they are practitioners of the religion. The international response calls for the halting of these immoral actions, but China still claims that it is destroying an evil institution.

Its governing system is worrying and the trend that the nation is undertaking seems to be headed for disaster as opposed to safety (Kenny). China is proving to be a dangerous superpower because its ideologies and policies on international issues do not depict a rational superpower. A superpower has the responsibility to unite nations and promote peace because it has recognition across the world, and other nations are willing to listen to the superpower. China has depicted negativity and lack of interest in uniting the world, but instead taken actions that are bent towards war and terror across the world. In addition, it has gone against the moral expectations of all nations by supporting the countries that violate human rights.

More murderous than Hitler, more powerful than Stalin, in the battle of the Communist leaders Mao Zedong trumps all. Born into a comfortable peasant family, Mao would rise up to become China’s great leader. After leading the communists away from Kuomintang rule, he set out to modernize China, but the results of this audacious move were horrific. He rebounded from his failures time and again, and used his influence to eliminate his enemies and to purge China of its old ways. Mao saw a brighter future for China, but it was not within his grasp; his Cultural Revolution was not as successful as he had wanted it to be.
