Some China observers pointed out that the rise of territorial nationalism (Taiwan, South China Sea etc.) and anti-American nationalism in China serve as readily available and useful tools for the Communist Party of China to divert the Chinese public’s attention away from domestic problems including systemic corruption, environmental pollution and other social economic issues and channel Chinese anger toward China’s external threats. These strands of Chinese nationalism serve to legitimate the one-party rule in China as the sole defender of the Chinese nation. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this observation?

In many cases, the concentration of the global public’s attention on external political issues diverts the consideration of particular internal problems. In this respect, China’s strategy to intensify the conflict with Taiwan might be a useful tool for distracting the global community’s attention from the communist rule’s problems inside China. On the one hand, one might easily agree with the statement since the scope of coverage of this news implies the importance of US-China relations at the global geopolitical level.

Little attention is paid to the corrupted single-party political system in China, which allows the Communist Party to prevail without criticism. On the other hand, the rise of territorial nationalism in China and Taiwan might imply a growing resistance toward the single-party rule in Chine, which endangers the position of communists. Therefore, there is a high level of uncertainty as to the drivers of China’s intentions toward Taiwan, although it is likely that the position of the Communist Party due to the conflict might solidify in the background of diminished attention to intra-state issues.
