As some scholars have indicated, development is the keystone of China's future, and the main threat to national security is not foreign invasion but whether China can support a stable, orderly, and healthy society. Other scholars warn against focusing on military force at the expense of diplomacy. If China becomes a more democratic country, it too will play an increasingly constructive role in the world system. Democratization is essential to China's emergence as a global power. The major challenge for China will be to deal correctly with the United States, the leader of the present global world order. By following a strategy of putting integration first while also seeking some amendment and alteration, China and the United States can use cooperation as a basis for managing challenges. Accordingly, if the Chinese government can innovate, overcome corruption, and distribute the fruits of economic growth more rationally, it can avoid crisis.
