In a real democracy there are no political parties because the people rule, and there hasn't been a real democracy in the world for more than two thousand years when it ended in Ancient Greece.

That happens in many countries. In Canada I was offered money or liquour for my vote; if people are foolish enough to accept bribes they deserve to have rotten governments.

""Moreover... why is it called democracy if the people can't choose their government themselves?""

I've often wondered that about our government here in the USA.
In the 2000 presidential election Al Gore received the majority of the vote, yet George Bush was 'elected' president.
Our corruption prone 'electoral college' system of electing a president causes apathy. It gives states with smaller
populations greater influence in proportion to their size. It makes many states voting results meaningless and concentrates
the importance of campaigning to only a few 'swing states'.
From Wikipedia
The elections of 1876, 1888 and 2000 produced an Electoral College winner who did not receive the majority of the
nationwide popular vote.
Except in closely fought swing states, voter turnout is largely insignificant due to entrenched political party domination in most states. The Electoral College decreases the advantage a political party or campaign might gain for encouraging voters to turn
out, except in those swing states.
The election of 2000 had the tragic result of giving the USA one of the worse, most inept presidents in history.
Many debacles could have been avoided if not for having this idiot and his evil vice president in office for eight years.

This graphic demonstrates how the winner of the popular vote can still lose in a hypothetical electoral college system.

These maps show the amount of attention given to each state by the Bush and Kerry campaigns during the final five
weeks of the 2004 election. At the top, each waving hand represents a visit from a presidential or vice-presidential
candidate during the final five weeks. At the bottom, each dollar sign represents one million dollars spent on TV
advertising by the campaigns during the same time period.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Mind it the OP called it "chinese democracy".Was it ever existed?

Go through the history and you will find a blank space.

I found it a MODERN FUDAL SYSTEM which shown them a good economic uprising under no choice of people rather run by one party.
