Being the lastcentury 80's college students, we fell under the influence of western thought. Whenwe studied in the college, we read the book of Jean-Paul Sartre, Arthur Schopenhauer,Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, and watched the River Elegy. In our mind, the Westis heaven, the Western democratic system is the best political system ofmankind.
Now, I am 52year-old, also live and work abroad for more than 20 years, I have been to manycountries, also read more books.
Why do not Ibelieve in Western democracy? The follow is reason.
First of all,Dissolution of the Soviet Union gave me the first shock, I thought thatDissolution of the Soviet Union would bring rich and liberty to Russian, but Iam wrong. Russia was fading fast, at the same time, the Western country group didnot welcome Russian.
Second ofall, in 2001, the Sino-US military aircraft collided in the South China Sea, Chinapilots Wang Hai fell down in the sea. But the western media only reported that theUS aircraft soldiers were detained by China, we cannot find out the news ofWang Hai missing in any western media. In fact Those US soldiers taking intocustody in Hainan Island stayed a hotel to eat and drink, and Wang Hai disappearedin the cold sea. Wang Hai also has parents, wife and children. This time, I sawthe hypocrisy of the Western media.
Third ofall, the Arab Spring in 2011, the western democracy system brought the Arabworld great disaster.
Fourth ofall, the New York Times and other Western media, no matter how much China'sachievements, they can see China's evil. Improvement of China is greatdevelopment of the mankind history since the industrial revolution.
I do notthink that China's political system is perfect, but I think Western arrogancemakes them turn a blind eye to China's achievements.
