So let's say that China's 1.3 billion people got to vote for their leaders.  What would be the worst that could happen?

In other democracies, this does not happen: they get things done.

The Chinese have a different mentality.
The Europeans have a different mentality.
The Indians have a different mentality.

If democracy is that good and fair then it follows that the WTO, IMF, World Bank, UN etc. all should accord votes based on population size, e.g. 1,000 people per vote. Democratic promoters and proponents should self initiate this if they truly believe in democracy. But why aren't they? Because if democracy is genuinely practiced China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia will call the shots not US, England and France. Assuming that India reunites Pakistan and Bangladesh, power is vested just among China, India and Indonesia, of course US will still have some say.

The Europeans have a different mentality.
The Indians have ...

So, what you are saying is that Chinese would rather be told what to do at gunpoint than be able to vote on what they should do.
