Well done, zglobal.

Its an absolutely brilliant thread for being witty and funny but at the same time getting to the crux of why we all disagree in every other thread on this forum.

My take:

Every nation should be left in peace to make their own decisions and choose their own path without outside interference.
I am Chinese and Proud of it!

Can you imagine if China was to push its successful model of government onto the US or EU?

These US/EU forumites would be attacking us for it.

Just imagine if we joined some of the American forums and started preaching to them about why they need to adopt our model?

Oh for heavens sake, give us some new arguments!

More dumb West-bashing. Western democracies aren't failed and are extraordinarily diverse, each one created in response to the particular needs and cultures of the nation's people at different time ...


Why is it you people have such a hangup about the word "democracy"?

Did you not study any history whatsoever?
What do you think that so called democracies have been doing for the last few centuries? Building utopia?

Buddy the world is a mess and whose fault is it? No prizes for guessing.

Why can't we just agree that China is looking for her own model, whatever it may be.
China has been looking at a model based on Social Harmony.
You cannot just keep coming and pushing your failed model down our throats.

BTW Normally I would put you down but I think this thread is very interesting and should be kept free from flaming.
