In recent years, Europe has been showing signs of frustration of the CCP’s aggressive geopolitical posture. Some European countries have begun to refuse Chinese state enterprises from participating in their economies as the United States is deepening its cooperation with European allies to counter the CCP.
Before any nation might effectively challenge the abysmal human right record of China — a mighty military nation with almost 1.5 billion consumers — the former first must have a significant trade-export/import bargaining chip.
I can imagine that a large enough number of world nations securely allied, however, likely could combine their resources and go without the usual China bully-nation trade/investment connection they’d all prefer to abandon, instead trading necessary goods and services between themselves (and perhaps other, non-allied countries not beholden to China).
Yet, maybe such an alliance has already been proposed and discussed but rejected (behind closed doors) due to Chinese government strategists knowing how to ‘divide and conquer’ potential alliance nations by using door-wedge economic/political leverage custom-made for each nation.
Each country putting its unbending bottom-line interests first may always be its, and therefore collectively our, Achilles’ heel to be exploited by huge-market nations like China.
