But a long time ago I even thought about emigrating to Australia... :D

Well, I will say one thing that is correct about the Chinese view. The expression "Rules-based international order" always did have a self-righteous, vaguely hypocritical, and somewhat hollow ring to it. This order, which was ushered in after the Allied victory in WWII, really meant the following: ...
