You have not provided a single argument that American Liberal Republicanism is a greater threat to the world than Chinese Totalitarian Dictatorship.
Nor have you provided a single argument that Biden's foreign policy in the year 2021 is threatening countries in a worse way than China is threatening EU countries, Australia, the people of Hong Kong, Tibet & East Turkestan.
You would have to show that the US is treating parts of its own population in the year 2021 in the same way China is treating the Uyghurs, Cantonese and Tibetans. Forced exile, internment without trial, forced ethnic re-education, forced sterilisation against its own citizens en mass.
You would then have to show that the US is treating foreign countries in the year 2021, the same way China is treating Australia, Sweden and others for the same reasons. Anyone who criticises the Chinese government is sanctioned. Countries and people are free to criticise the US government. The important part is not the sanctions on individuals themselves(that is just posturing with no effect on anyone beyond those specific individuals) but the reasons for them.
The US slaps them for human rights violations, warmongering and nuclear threats, China for plain criticism. Explain how China's reasoning poses a lesser threat to people around the world than America's reasoning.
