Your quote, |
why do we let the mass decide, rather than the people with greatest integrity, knowledgeable and qualification. china has long established such a system. the communists have even remove the security-blanket type of figure head, the emperor, from the top. u democratists should learn from it, rather than continue suffer under the manipulation of the politicians.
Who gets to decide which people have the greatest integrity, knowledge and qualifications? And what if there is disagreement of who gets selected, or even what the selected people do? How can you guarantee that Communist leaders will not continue to manipulate their people? I belive most peole oppose such tyranny.
yes, when it comes to matter of national, or international, importance. for example, 90% of chinese want to revenge japan. 85% want to take taiwan today.
First, where are you pulling these percentages from? Please provide background source/evidence for your numbers. Secondly, even if these were true figures, don't you believe that the government of the people should try follow the wishes of the people with respect to bettering their lives? You used extreme examples, and should take into account that any major war would involve great loss of life and destruction on both sides.

Your other points shifted the topic from your belief that Chinese people are not intelligent to make their own decisions to saying American, Israeli, etc citizens are too dumb to make good choices for their own country. Please stick to the original question. Who are you to judge what actions/national policy of other people believe are best for them?
If Chinese leaders are doing a good job for the people, then they should not fear being replaced in a democatic election. And such an election is the only true way to determine if the people believe their leaders are supporting policies which help them.
