Colonies in the Twenty-First Century


China is making new colonies through Belt and Road Initiative. Pakistan can be struck in the net of China through China Pakistan Corridor. There are more than two hundred states that exist in the world. Some of them are autonomous; however, a few are not. It is the rule of law, all of them have a leader to look at all of the state matters.

In the past, different nations were governed directly. However, in this century, this dilemma is changing drastically.

Nowadays, states can be governed directly or indirectly which affects the efficiency and effectiveness of a government. One can say, this is the era a neo-colonialism; like Bratin, one does not need to go and build a colony. All of this can be done by affecting foreign policy.

Finally, China is affecting the nations around the globe through export, investment, and so-called BRI. But, how much the Chinese people will have an impact on other nations, the coming years will tell.
