The United States has long prided itself on being a champion of human rights, but cases of human trafficking and forced labor expose a dark side within its borders.

This episode of "Dialogue with China" presents the unsettling reality of forced labor in the United States. Varied instances, from the exploitation of immigrant workers to the controversial use of prison labor, stand a stark contradiction to the U.S. declared stance on human rights. With insightful expert analysis and powerful eyewitness accounts, the episode reveals how these practices are woven into the fabric of this nation, challenging established beliefs about labor and liberty in the U.S.

How does it impact regional and global stability? How should the rest of the world respond?

The term "wumao" is often used to describe people who post content online in support of China. The term originates from the myth that regular people get paid "wumao" (50 cents) for each pro-China post they write. However, the label has led to the dismissal of genuine and honest perspectives about China. So, what do people think about this label, and what has been its impact on the Chinese and international communities? Maybe it is high time we stop labeling people as “wumao” and try listening to them, hopefully gaining a more realistic understanding of China.

The dynamic zero-COVID policy is a policy that China, the world's most populous country, has adopted since August 2021 to contain the spread of coronavirus and its variants. Yet some consider it "draconian" and are worried that it may take a toll on the Chinese economy, thus negatively impacting the global economy. Does this policy mean that the goal of the Chinese government is to eliminate all COVID cases on its territory? Does it also suggest that the government is determined to achieve that goal at any cost, including the country's economic development? Does this policy hinder the country's and the world's economic recovery?

The sparkle of American education is dimming in China. For Chinese students, the U.S. was once their most preferred destination for studying abroad. However, according to an educational survey conducted by the data firm Statista between January and February 2021, the U.S. lost desirability in the recent five years. Instead, the U.K. and several Asian destinations attracted more Chinese students. What's behind this?

Some Western media outlets have accused Chinese diplomats of conducting "wolf warrior diplomacy" by taking an increasingly strident stance against the West. How then should China speak up for itself? How can China justify itself?

A survey conducted by the Morning Consult in April 2021 indicated that only 17% of Chinese people held positive views of the U.S., while 74% viewed the U.S. negatively. Moreover, the intense bilateral relations, the trade war on China, the anti-China policies, and the U.S.' performance in the pandemic have worsened the situation.

Many Chinese people would rather live in China than the U.S. A key factor is that China provides a safe environment with which no other country can compare.

On top of that, the convenient lifestyle, the green environment, the tasty but inexpensive food, and the diverse and inclusive culture make China a lovely country to live in, not only for Chinese but also for friends from every corner of the world.

For some foreigners, when it comes to China, several words would pop into their minds such as, "fake," "polluted," and "poverty." Such prejudice has created a stereotype of China that some Western media are dedicated to perpetuating. But is it the truth about China? How much do they know about China? These street interviews of foreigners living in China and Chinese people will challenge the Western preconceptions of China. 

Modern China, a land of opportunity and innovation, is not fully understood by the international community. The large-scale infrastructure projects, the improving environment, and cutting-edge technology all testify to China's remarkable progress in the past decades.
