Moreover, it is Japan, as a symbol of the entire Pacific space, that is of paramount importance in these anti-Atlantic projects, since Japan's strategic position, the dynamics of its development, and the specifics of its value system make it an ideal partner in the planetary struggle against Western civilization. China, for its part, did not play a special role in this geopolitical picture, being deprived first of political independence (English colonization), and then of geopolitical dynamics. It was only during the period of active Maoism that a purely soil, Eurasian tendency manifested itself in China, when the projects of "peasant socialism", all-China nationalism and pronounced Sovietophilia prevailed. But this state did not last very long,and China, under the pretext of disagreeing with the development of the Soviet model, returned to the dubious geopolitical function of destabilizing the Far Eastern interests of Eurasia and escalating conflicts with Russia. There is no doubt that the Chinese perestroika that began in the 1980s was the final turn from the Maoist period to the pro-Atlantic model, which should have finally fixed the gap between China and the USSR and its orientation towards the West. Moreover, the “Atlantization” of modern China was much more successful than in Russia, since economic liberalism without political democratization allowed China to become dependent on Western financial groups without conflict, while maintaining a totalitarian system and the appearance of political independence. Liberalism was propagated in China by totalitarian methods, and that is why the reform was fully successful. The political power of the party oligarchy was supplemented by the economic power of the same oligarchy, which had successfully privatized the national industry and national wealth and fused with the international cosmopolitan elite of Torgovy Stroy. China's economic successes are a rather ambiguous reality, since they have been achieved at the cost of a deep compromise with the West and cannot be combined with any clear geopolitical concept that could serve as a guarantee of political independence and independence. Most likely, the new liberal China,having two serious competitors next to it, economically powerful Japan and strategically powerful Russia will again, like many times in history, return to a purely Atlantic function in the Far East, combining political dictatorship and the potential of capitalist development for this. Moreover, from a purely pragmatic point of view, the strategic alliance of Russia with China to create a single bloc will immediately push Japan away from the Russians and, accordingly, will again hostile that key Pacific region on whose participation in the common Eurasian project the ultimate geopolitical success of the confrontation between Sushi and the Sea depends.
