"Making the world safe for autocracy"

Jimmy Akin posts about a Robert Kagan article on China's rise, in which Kagan writes,
    [I]sn't it possible that China does not want to be integrated into a political and security system that it had no part in shaping and that conforms neither to its ambitions nor to its own autocratic and hierarchical principles of rule? Might not China, like all rising powers of the past, including the United States, want to reshape the international system to suit its own purposes, commensurate with its new power, and to make the world safe for its autocracy?
