The following is the translation of the core message of
an online Chinese post credited to Yunchu Li and part of
its Chinese text:
Following the rapid economic development and social progress
in China, the call from the West for China to adopt Western
style "democracy" becomes louder than ever. In
the period leading up to Beijing Olympics, there were even
talks in the West power circle that the West should demand China
to be democratized immediately or else to face boycott
of the Games.
Which is rather ironic. If those in the West really believe
in their democratic principles, they must understand that
when, how and even whether China wants to adopt a Western
style system shall be a matter decided by Chinese people,
while coercing others to accept its own values and viewpoints
is an undemocratic act in itself.
In fact, what Chinese
people concern most at the moment are some practical
issues, such as housing, health care, education and inflation.
As for to copy Western-styled drama of popular election
of their top leaders, it is known to be passionately promoted
by a small band of pro-West intellectuals who have little
understanding of and interest in Chinese situations, which
makes the West's enthusiasm over China's progress in democracy
rather suspicious, in particular when taking into account
the West's records on dealing with China since the Opium
War and its current performance in the Middle East, South
America and Africa.
If you do a bit investigation you'll realise the core value
of the Western-style democracy is of capitalization of the
political and social system, thus media is by and large under
the control of those with strongest monetary power, and governments
are generally swayed by the media power, which means, the
more money you have, the more "democratic" right
Now ask yourself, between China and the West, who has stronger
monetary power? The West, of course. Take a case to the point:
the West has recently got 175 billion dollars of hot money
quietly flown into China's capital market.
At this point, you shall be able to see what is the best
way to ensure the West's economic interest in China, and
why the West is more keen than Chinese to see China become
fully "democratized". With multiple parties constantly
engaging in internal power struggles, and from time to time
seeking external forces to help win the battles, like what
China was during the first half of last century, the control
of Chinese economy by the West will once again be guaranteed,
and China's development will never reach a point when it
might demand a fairer redistribution of the natural resources,
and further to challenge the West's political, economic and
cultural dominance over the world.
Understandably, this kind of "democracy" is not
what Chinese people would want to have. They expect, like
every one else in the world, to establish a political and
social system that best serves their interest, not that of
the West. However, the West seems yet to be civilised enough
to be able to tolerant and appreciate systems and values
that are different from theirs which they are unable to understood
The confrontation over the Lhasa riot between the vast majority
of Chinese people and the West is telling. It seems, to the
West, Chinese lives counter for nothing, let along their
basic human rights, which is why it would feel so outrageous
when Chinese protested the West media and politicians' insult
to the Han and Muslim victims.
In conclusion, like opium and Christian missionaries, Dalai
Lama and the Tibetan issue are just tools that are used to
help imposing the West authoritarian rules over the world,
so are the terms of the democracy and human rights as defined
by the West.
事实上中国人目前最迫切的要求是提高生活水平, 解决买房难,看病难,上学难问题, 以及抑制高企的物价, 对立刻实现全民普选和三权分立之类的西方式民主并不那么热衷.
美国还要继续对前苏联加盟共和国实行颜色革命, 因为颜色革命之前, 这些共和国不肯听命于美国. 俄罗斯建立了全民普选的民主制度了美国仍然否认俄罗斯是民主国家,
因为俄罗斯人不愿意让西方民主来做自己的主子, 而要与北约抗衡, 为本民族争取利益, 在美国看来就是拒绝'民''主'.
