Invent the Future editor Carlos Martinez discusses the slogan ‘Neither Washington nor Beijing, but international socialism’, which seems to be gaining traction in parts of the Western left, particularly in Britain, the US, Canada and Australia. Carlos addresses the question of whether China is imperialist; whether China is engaging with Africa in a neocolonial manner; how the multipolar model promoted by China is part of the long road to socialism; and why the left should defend China against US-led cold war, regardless of what they think of its political and economic system.
