The China Desk offers hard-hitting, no punches pulled commentary on the often stormy Divided China Problem, from an uncompromisingly laissez-faire capitalist, anti-interventionist perspective.

China Desk articles have appeared at the wildly popular libertarian website, LewRockwell.com, where Chu is a columnist/commentator, at the China Post, where Chu is a contributing editor, at Antiwar.com, the best known anti-war website on the Internet, at oOblue, the most popular Pan Blue website on Taiwan, and at Journey to the East, an exquisitely designed website introducing China to the English-speaking West. They have featured prominently at Yahoo! News Full Coverage portals, in Google News Alerts, and have even appeared in Pravda — the post Cold War, post Communist Pravda, of course.

The China Desk receives tens of thousands of views per month.

China Desk articles on Sino-American relations have been cited by China scholars in American universities, have earned Bevin Chu invitations to speak before the Harvard-Radcliffe Chinese Students Association, and live interviews on talk radio shows in Canada.

Articles explaining the non-threatening reality of post Cold War, post-Communist China to westerners have inspired character attacks against the author by the Falun Gong mouthpiece known as the Epoch Times.

Articles exposing the Dalai Lama’s feet of clay and the true nature of the Tibetan independence movement meanwhile, have earned the Politically Incorrect author angry denunciations from the Dalai Lama’s official website.

Chu is the son of the late Tsing-kang Chu, a high-ranking diplomat with the Republic of China government on Taiwan. Chu is the translator of the English language edition of “Taiwan at the Crossroads: An Expose of Taiwan’s New Dictatorship,” a landmark book by the celebrated native Taiwanese liberal reformer and political commentator, Joyce C. Huang (Huang Chi-hsien). “Taiwan at the Crossroads” is an eye-opening expose of the Taiwan independence movement that rips the “democratic” and “progressive” mask from the face of Taiwan independence and reveals it for what it is — an authoritarian fascist political movement motivated by primitive ethnic hatred.

Silk and Splendor
Long before J-pop and K-pop swept through Asia, neighboring Japan and Korea copied Chinese clothing designs and adopted them as their own. The kimono and hanbok are Japanese and Korean variants of the Chinese hanfu, which must not be forgotten in the country of its origin.
