A worrisome future: when Netflix TV series is released, those pro-western groups will set off a wave of praise.Isnt almost the entire cast of the book Chinese? So Netflix is going to try and created a censored version without Chinese elements?
I always thought the books have a fairly prominent bent which while I wouldn't call hardline pro China, they're definitely anti western doves. In the central final conflict, there's an imho very obvious allusion to the fall of the USSR due to Gorbachev and humanity's (temporary) downfall.
Three body problem, among several other important messages, carries the message of the importance of real freedom. Real freedom only comes with autonomy. Trisolaris is presented as a fascist, militarist threat, against humanity, which contrary to trisolaris operates on collectivist principles. Humanity only loses when it is willing to accept trisolarans without demanding reform first.
The book is surprisingly open about something which would probably put you in trouble if you printed it in the west: "Never negotiate with a nazi".
And there are almost no successful cases of American adaptation of East Asian literature or film and television works. They can shoot all those famous Japanese manga into stupid shit movies.
