Xi Jinping has arguably become the most powerful person in the world. This has come from a combination of the absolute sovereignty of his communist party over all things China; his 'red genes', family heritage, which cannot be challenged; his purging and purifying the party, and centralising and personalising power; and the disarray of the nations and leaders championing the liberal democratic worldview. Can such power be limited, staunched or even reversed, within China or without? This is a giant question for our times.
