There is really no need to define anything. If you really are that brave to walk into this debate without knowing who Mao Zedong is, he is the first chairman of the People's Republic of China 1949-1976.
In security arrangements, the principles of multilateralism are best embodied in a collective security system such as NATO, in which a war against one state is considered to be a war against all states, ensuring that any act of aggression against a member of the collective system is met with a response from all members.
Multilateralism — operating through architectures of organizations, institutions, and bespoke mechanisms, often based in treaties and international law and grounded, fundamentally, in the U.N. Charter — has been crucial to preserving peace, increasing prosperity, addressing common threats, and even defending democratic values in both the Cold War and post-Cold War eras.
To better understand the nature of multilateralism, it is useful to contrast it with bilateralism, a good example of which is the commercial policies of Nazi Germany, in which the German government negotiated bilateral agreements with other countries specifying which goods and services were to be traded, their prices, and the quantities to be exchanged. Through that, a significant number of nations were connected by trade agreements, with Germany acting as a central hub. ... Thus, the German system was built around systematic discrimination, whereas the GATT assured nondiscrimination for all contracting parties.
- For Xi Jinping, the objective of multilateralism is to construct a “community of a shared future of mankind”
- In his report to the 19th NPC, Xi Jinping described his vision of multilateralism as “dialogue without confrontation, partnership without alliance”
- In English-language communication, the Chinese leadership and CCP outlets frequently highlight that China is a “champion of multilateralism”, that China will “adhere to multilateralism” or that China is committed to “upholding multilateralism”.
Mao’s theories which guided the Chinese revolution to victory in 1949, particularly his theory of people’s war, represent a fusion of many aspects of his thought: his confidence in the fundamental revolutionary strength of the peasantry, his grasp of the dialectical philosophy, his complete freedom from the kind of philistinism which invests excuses to condemn the armed struggle of the oppressed nations.
- A lot of ongoing circumstances got in he way, unfortunately, it happens sometimes. I apologize for the delay, but I hope for the prerogative to post my argument in the subsequent round if it serves the utility of both parties.
- China contributes to multilateralism and is currently strong enough to make the US not the only dominant power output
- Mao is directly responsible for China being what it is today
- Mao's strategy is responsible for:
- Holding back against the nationalist warlords and the Japanese, in which either of them could make it worse
- Help with negotiations with the Nationalists, and agreed to fight Japan together in the later stages of the war
- The Nationalist faction is less united and called for anti-communism before anti-imperialism, so it has less of a chance to win
- Mao decided that a long march was a good choice, which turned out yes, and it helped the Communists, in turn the Chinese civilization, in turn the Allies.
- Japan likely will reunite with Germany after getting such a huge victory, and WW2 will be harder to win for the allies if not for Mao in China
- Mao is responsible for holding back imperalism and fascism, resulting in a Win for the allies in WW2
- Successfully holding back the South Koreans and the American army during the Korean war(despite having inferior weaponry)
- Which made China a prominent rising force
- Influencing Deng, Xi and other leaders to carve a path suitable for the conditions of this country and leading to the prosperity.
- Mao reunited China and reformed land, capital and labor, so that efficiency increased
- Mao gained trust from the prole, which was a lot of people, and eventually led to a successful revolution
- Mao's revolutionary foundation of China was so strong that his theory upon improvement from his successors was able to keep running this country in a reasonable fashion, despite a few years under the influence of false revolutionaries like Jiang Qing and fatal misestimations
- Mao received positive reviews upon his death amongst many countries and the UN.
