The subject in the articles is the Chinese people and the way in which they cannot enjoy a clean environment but it goes further than that. It in a way asserts the western dominance in terms of being able to provide a clean environment for the people and where the Chinese are deprived, the West in successful. It ignores the good things in terms the environment that have been done where you don’t see the “open urination” and the naked children running around. The judgment ofChinais based on the same mentality even though it has made wonderful strides towards growth and prosperity and as such is not a dependent country at all.
These individual articles aside, the general vein being taken with regards to criticism about China speaks of a mass conspiracy against the Chinese people by the authorities and a sense of deprivation and backwardness with regards to rights and privileges (Jacobs).
