I honestly have no idea what you mean in your four first sentences.
I am not expressing any anti-chinese sentiment, here or anywhere else, and know enough to distinguish between a people and its governing class. With that in mind, the government of the PRC is a threat to humanity. That does not make me a believer in any "yellow peril" theory.
From what I read in my course on Chinese history (I had 3 credits to kill that I could only take as elective outside my specialisation and it was the summer, meaning that pickings were slim... on the bright side, I think it broadened my perspective a little), their more recent political movement has very much been a reaction to Western and Japanese imperialism, which lead them to reject their traditional Confucian values in exchange for Russian-style Marxism.
That mellowed out considerable under Deng Xiaoping (who, while not flawless, seemed exceptional from what I read about him). We'll see what comes after Xi Jinping (who is not exactly a young man btw). One can hope he'll be more like the predecessor.
Countries tend to have ups and down depending on the leadership of the moment. Quite a shocking development across the ocean just recently! Nobody is immune to having a demagogue as head of state... you gotta stay vigilant.
