No we haven't. The Middle Kingdom was quite happy blundering along in imperial splendour and societal decay until around the 1830s, tnen the UK realised it couls[dnlt pay for the tea it wanted so sold opium. The Opium Wars followed. A bit like Colombian Drug Lords invading LA and demanding everyone in the USA get addicted to happy powder.

And then a few years later that chap Perry forced the opening of Japanese ports to American trade.

You reap what you sow.
