Western Intellectuals Freak Over 'Frankenstein' China

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Pepe Escobar

Western economists and intellectuals obsessed with demonization of China are never shy of shortcuts glaringly exposing their ignorance. The latest outburst posits that "we" – as in Western intellectuals – "are the modern version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein," who electro-shocked a dead body (China) into a resurrected "murderous monster."

So, welcome to the Sino-Frankenstein school of international relations. What next? A black and white remake with Xi Jinping playing the monster? Anyway, "we" – as in mankind's best hope – should "avoid carrying on in the role of Frankenstein."

The author is an economics professor emeritus at Harvard. He cannot even identify who's to blame for Frankenstein – the West or the Chinese. That says much about Harvard's academic standards.
