America evil this, America evil that.
No, America does not want China to become more democratic because it would be "easier for CIA influence/ coups/etc" or that it would be "like the Japanese during the 80's and the Plaza Accord." Believe it or not, many Americans truly believe in the ideals of human rights and democracy and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact even if Americans did not believe in human rights, it is still the right thing to do, the Chinese people should have the right to freedom of speech and civil society without the government saying no.
It doesn't matter what many Americans truly believe if they are still all wrong and have false attributions, at the end of the day its still hegemony as the driving force.... Many Americans believe 5G causes COVID, that doesn't change the real facts. Not even sure why you keep arguing this point as if a false belief should be given more credit than the underlining forces that shape the dynamics of great power competition.
