What ingrates. Don't they understand that the BRICS are ushering in a
new world order geared to human needs under a benign form of capitalism?
Just ask Pepe Escobar.
As far as what might be called the “authoritarian neoliberalism” of the
Middle Kingdom, what’s not to like at the moment? China has proven that
there is a result-oriented alternative to the Western “democratic”
capitalist model for nations aiming to be successful. It’s building not
one, but myriad new Silk Roads, massive webs of high-speed railways,
highways, pipelines, ports and fiber optic networks across huge parts of
Eurasia. These include a Southeast Asian road, a Central Asian road, an
Indian Ocean “maritime highway” and even a high-speed rail line through
Iran and Turkey reaching all the way to Germany.
