Boulding Cites China

Across Campus


D -"~I/kA IL I1 -k7&W

Marxism, riationalism and Tai-
wan make United States-Chinese
relations a problem that is "al-
most unsolvable" and that re-
quires "extraordinary patience,"
Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the
economics department told a ca-.
pacity crowd in the Multipurpose
Rm. of the UGLI Sunday.
The lecture was the first in a
Challenge series on "The Chal-
lenge of Communist China."
Calling the Eastern tradition of
China and India and the Western
tradition of Sumer, Greece and
Rome the "two great strains of
history which, until about 100
years ago, never really mixed,"
Boulding noted that their impacts
on each other have differed.
"We owe more to China than
we realize," he said, maintaining
that China's impact on the West
in terms of the mandarin-scholar-
civil servant ideal has been very
Impact of West
"But the impact of the West on
China has been almost totally
destructive," he declaied. "In
about 200 years China fell to per-
haps the lowest level in the world."
Then "the West hit China
through Marxism-that's a little
like getting it through Jehovah's
Witnesses. The Peking Review is
a little like the "Watchtower,"
with the same narrow frame of
Boulding explained that Marx-
ism, with its stern, puritanical
outlook, its prophet, Marx, its
view of private property as sin, its
vision of heaven as the Commun-
ist state and even a transubstan-
tiation in its Labor Theory of
Value, is "the Judeo-Christian
tradition at its worst, for Marx-
ism is a loveless Christianity."
And as a result of its contact
with Marxism, Boulding declared,

Hatred for U.S.
This puritanical fervor of the
Communist Chinese, he concluded,
has resulted in a hatred for the
less-puritanical United States that
is "understandable, but strictly
pathological," and which has im-
peded United States - Chinese
communications severely.
The second element, which has
often mingled with Marxism, is
Chinese nationalism, Boulding
maintained. "Now is perhaps the
first time that the concept of
government has replaced the con-
cept of the family, and the
Chinese are going through it with
a vengeance. It is an assertion
of national identity after one
hundred years of disaster," he
The United States, he pointed'
out, "has been a howling suc-
cess," and even so, was intensely

pand to its historical border." }
He noted that China also is
seeking friendly border states, as'
has the Soviet Union. "We'd be
alarmed if Mexico were in two,
parts and a Communist armyl
were fighting in one part," Bould-E
ing added in a reference to Vietl

Crucial Element
Touching on what he calledI
"the inevitable question" of Tai-
wan, Boulding called it the "cru-
cial element" in U.S.-Chinese re-
lations. The Chinese regard Tai-
wan as a national problem; the
U.S., since it has had an impor-
tant part in its development and
a stake in its future, feels it is
an international problem, he said.
"I favor a 'two-China' policy-
in fact, I favor a twenty-China
policy. The country is much too
hard to run properly as a socialist
state. Of course, it's hard to tell
the Chinese this."
"We used to think of Canada
as 'our country,' and made several
attempts to take it from the
British," Boulding continued.
"Now we're rather accustomed to
a 'two-America' policy."
Boulding admitted that he did
not have "all the answers," but
said that United States recogni-
tion and a United Nations seat
for China, along with "extra-
ordinary patience," were imnpor-
Economic Future
"Red China's economic future,
unlike Taiwan's, is still veiy
largely a question-mark. Red.
China may be around for a long
time, and we ought to recognize
it and think in long-range terms,"
he said.
However, Boulding noted that,,
"it's very hard to communicate,
because all our classical refer-
ences are different. Marxism is a
form of Westernization. But it's
out-of-date and heretical-and it's
harder to talk with heretic than
an infidel."
He added that, in his view,
Japan would not play an impor-
tant role in promoting communi-
cation between China and the
rest of the world.
