Why do not I believe that Western democracy system is good for all countries?

Being the last century 80's college students, we fell under the influence of western thought. When we 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 West is heaven, the Western democratic system is the best political system of mankind.

Now, I am 52 year-old, also live and work abroad for more than 20 years, I have been to many countries, also read more books.

Why do not I believe in Western democracy? The follow is reason.

First of all, Dissolution of the Soviet Union gave me the first shock, I thought that Dissolution of the Soviet Union would bring rich and liberty to Russian, but I am wrong. Russia was fading fast, at the same time, the Western country group did not welcome Russian.

Second of all, in 2001, the Sino-US military aircraft collided in the South China Sea, China pilots Wang Hai fell down in the sea. But the western media only reported that the US aircraft soldiers were detained by China, we cannot find out the news of Wang Hai missing in any western media. In fact Those US soldiers taking into custody in Hainan Island stayed a hotel to eat and drink, and Wang Hai disappeared in the cold sea. Wang Hai also has parents, wife and children. This time, I saw the hypocrisy of the Western media.

Third of all, the Arab Spring in 2011, the western democracy system brought the Arab world great disaster.

Fourth of all, the New York Times and other Western media, no matter how much China's achievements, they can see China's evil. Improvement of China is great development of the mankind history since the industrial revolution.

I do not think that China's political system is perfect, but I think Western arrogance makes them turn a blind eye to China's achievements.

The rapprochement between China and the west in the early and mid-80s in part resulted from the west's efforts to team up with China in confrontation against the former Soviet Union.
And when the west found themselves failing to bring Russia into the fold after the Soviet Union fell apart, they envisioned a regime change in China by granting China wider access to the global trade and business system that were dominated by the west, in hopes western values and ideology would erode people's faith in China's ideological belief and culture, which now could only be seen as a wild goose chase.
All along, the westerners have viewed China with a leery eye, constantly picking fault with China's political system, grooming dissents, stirring discontents among certain groups of people in an attempt to pressure China into accepting the rules set by the west, thus maintaining their status as the governing group of the world, but to no avail.
Moreover, the western journalism is never known for being objective and impartial in reporting, they can't even treat their domestic affairs evenhandedly, let alone handle stories about China in a fair and balanced way.
Like you, I looked up to the west when I was young, but just got disillusioned with it after I have witnessed so much hypocrisy of the west over my more than 10 years of working with the westerners.
