Analysts say China is bound by the accused should not be a strong suit after the West

Russian Duma elections due to support Putin’s United Russia party won, “there is no suspense,” while a large number of public criticism by the West, Russia’s democratic status is also re-described by the cartoon. If the Russian people are very concerned about the evaluation of the West, they may be “very aggrieved.”
Russia in recent years to “transition to democracy,” one of the largest pay. For social and political transformation, and even the Soviet Union gone, the country from political to economic have implemented a “shock therapy”, through the brutal war in Chechnya, Moscow continued terrorist attacks, many people almost starving. But “real democracy” still does not return, reduced not by much hostility to the West, this is not the Russian people thought 20 years ago.
the Russian people do not want democracy? Clearly not. They also engage in a “very standard” one person one vote elections, a multiparty system has become a reality, there are a lot of media privatization movement. At least in form, they have done to do.
but Russia is indeed still very unique in all aspects of power, it is the complex historical and cultural memory, as well as its lingering national aspirations, it can not have a precise docking with the countries of Western .
Russia has emerged a strong degree of opposition of the social liberal, but this opposition has been “absent.” This is the West that Putin’s autocratic deliberate pursuit of individual results. But the truth may not be so simple.
from Yeltsin to Putin then Medvedev, they add up to Western applause, do not bring down the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev received more than one year. This at least tells us that, in order through the “democratic reform” and win praise from the West, is very naive.
West real interest of democracy to the world is probably not necessary, but would like to take this process to the global expansion of Western interests. Russia’s “tragedy” is that, while it accepted the “one person one vote”, but we vote for them is still Russia’s interests, rather than western interests.
democratic system into non-Western countries, is bound complex with the national political reality of running. This run may not lead to more dynamic than in the West the results of the current system. But the West for democracy must be “pure”, this way, the collision would not have brought with running leap into learning all the capitalist road “from scratch.” West is always superior to make a more objective results.
center of the recent global public opinion survey in seven Chinese cities in a sample survey, the majority of urban residents agree that 7 “Democracy is a good thing,” that “democracy is the big trend,” while most people that the content of democracy “is a rich” American-style democracy “is just a form of democracy.”
this year is the 20th anniversary of the Soviet Union, Russia, China to seriously analyze this rare specimen. China to continue to develop democracy, but we do so because of the need to help break the democratic variety of problems facing China, we can not have to cater to the West, to please the West, even a glimmer.
China is doomed to criticism by the West, we are more powerful, more subject to criticism, which we have become relatively more democratic does not matter. Not to mention the reality of China’s determination to explore according to their own road to democracy, even western China in full accordance with the set to do, we will not get applause.
welcomed by the West to China, the way is probably easier to give up all the disputed territory, allowing Taiwan and even Tibet, Xinjiang independence, stop manned space program, reduce the nuclear arsenal is no longer engaged in aircraft carrier, not rebuilt nuclear submarines, and so on.
at least the next three to five years, China will be the international public opinion in the “doormat.” Pursuit of national revival in China, must have a strong will. Western public opinion can not come down, we can not deliberately going against the Western experience to go. How good of China, how do we, the truth is always wrong. ▲
