There is an important point you have missed:|
Many chinese know about the problem of the government. But we will not condone to open discussion in front of outsider EVEN IF THE GOVERNMENT HAD WANTED TO! In fact, should the government openly discuss its flaws in front of the world, we the people will likely topple the government.
It is really very simple. The chinese know the problems. The chinese discuss the issue among themselves, and the chinese will scold the government to death for certain things but to the OUTSIDERS, the chinese will always be united and harmonious, the government a strong and wise leader and the country prosper.
And I LIKE to honestly discuss the obvious, the problems, and the flaws of the chinese government. Just NOT with you (or any non-chinese). The chinese are very shy people; they don't do their dirty laundry in the public.
And I will even let you in for a little secret! Even when the chinese are busy denying all the obvious observations, they are working hard to correct these problems! (A stark contrast to a certain country where people have admitted the truth but do next to nothing to correct the wrongs, but that's beside the point.)
And lastly, All the chinese know the true safety situation in China: As long as you don't challenge the authority, you will be safe. The chinese are perfectly fine with this arrangement, except for a handful, for whom the chinese has completely no sympathy for.

So you don't like to honestly discuss the obvious - obvious to any casual and unbiased observer of Chinese reality...
For face' sake - only flatteries and half-truths are allowed; propaganda pure is de rigueur!
And, of course, China is not "backward" but the West is full of "spoilt" people, criminals, diseases...
Where do you learn about these western evils?
Methinks only a thoroughly rotten national monopoly media whose interest is to keep opinions controlled is capable of telling you such.
Meanwhile, should you want to know about the true safety sitatuion in your country open a well-informed publication.... It won't be printed in China!
