He adheres to traditionalist conservatism of the analytic philosophy school dominant in the Anglophone world, and is considered an important figure in the pro-Western ultra-right in contemporary China. He advocates that the gravest tragedy in the modern history of China was caused by China's painstaking maintenance of the unity and integrity of its own territory after it inherited it from the doomed Qing Empire. He argues that the current state of the mainstream models of the Western democratic system (with characteristics like consensus decision making, welfare state and over-suppression of parastate actors) will prove fatal, as evident in the appearance of forces aimed at undermining it due to its weaknesses such as the ISIS.
