The World Is Changing: China Launches Campaign for Superpower Status

The outdated notion that China "just wants to do business" should be completely erased from our understanding of the rising global power’s political outlook.

Simply put, Beijing has long realized that, in order for it to sustain its economic growth unhindered, it has to develop the necessary tools to protect itself, its allies and their combined interests.

The need for a strong China is not a novel idea developed by the current Chinese President, Xi Jinping. It goes back many decades, spanning various nationalist movements and, ultimately, the Communist Party. What sets XI apart from the rest is that, thanks to the unprecedented global influence acquired by Beijing during his incumbency (2013-present), China is now left with no alternative but to match its "economic miracle" with a military one.
