It isn't good to emulate the vices of either of them. What game are you playing, implying that it's a binary choice between emulating China's dystopia and emulating the out-of-control capitalism of the US? Many countries have done neither.

not an authoritarian worshipper :

Donald Trump's lauding of authoritarian strongmen like Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, and Kim Jung-un has exacerbated the creepy resurgence of authoritarianism worldwide, reminiscent of the 1930s. However, many other leaders have upheld the values of constitutional republicanism and rule of law, such as Taiwan, France, and Germany.

"Governments in Asia are increasingly adopting China’s authoritarian tactics to hold on to power or control the narrative," .......It is good to see others wanting to emulate China instead of the US.
