More fascist. Trump can't scratch China's ass when it comes to controlling and micro-managing their own people.

I don't think it's accurate to describe China as "fascist". It's more nuanced than that.

 

Also, I doubt that China is going to exert itself in the same way that America has done (e.g. hundreds of military bases around the world).

Do you have any reasons for that belief, or...?

Well the expansion of the American military around the world is unprecedented. Not in terms of occupation but the reach is global and dominion overwhelming. With a rising power like China and competing powers in the jumping in the foray perhaps it is not a stretch to say that American hegemony will be unmatched in the near to mid future.

I think China will create military bases in order to secure its geopolitical interests. It has a $590 million base in Djibouti, and has been known to be making deals elsewhere. The issue for China is the fact that it doesn't have the diplomatic, economic, and systemic infrastructure necessary to support "foreign expansion" as much as the US has. When bringing up smaller nations like Russia who have military bases present in a fair number of countries, you have to remember that Russia has infrastructure and diplomatic alliances left over from the cold war, but China has to start from scratch. China will eventually build these systems to a level of sophistication similar to the current American system, but I do believe that they can only go so far in such a hierarchical society. American academic structure, and military structure is unsurpassed and self-improving in all fields. Its political structure as well may seem corrupt and ineffectual, but I think that's just the surface to a large, and complex behemoth. I think there is a limit to what China can do in its current form, and the only country I see that can surpass the US in its structure is Russia, or one of the US' own allies.

If China became the world's dominant country, it would establish a hegemony over the East Asian countries that are close to it, probably mirroring Russia's current relationship with Central Asia. China would make no effort to advance democracy or human rights across the world as the U.S. does, and instead would support whatever styles of government led to stability and order. They would probably favor technocratic dictatorships or oligarchies.
