Americans’ theory that more trade with China would open up the country to more democracy has been proven wrong. In fact, say Reggie Littlejohn, Huchen Zhang, and Chen Guangcheng on “The Bill Walton Show,” they have backfired. “You cannot tolerate evil. You cannot treat evil with kindness,” Zhang said.

The Chinese consider Western countries to be naive and easily manipulated, but if the U.S. will stand up to them in trade deals, it will earn the support of the Chinese people and deprive the government of the money to control the country’s social structure, Guangcheng said on “The Bill Walton Show.”
