New York Times agrees: Democracy stinks, Chinese rule is better!
The New York Times has an editorial called "Why China’s Political Model Is Superior" which says just what it says it says. Democracy is defined as a false religion, and like all religions, the older they are the truer they are, and the younger they are, the falser:
New York Times:
If one defines democracy as one citizen one vote, American democracy is only 92 years old. In practice it is only 47 years old, if one begins counting after the Voting Rights Act of 1965 — far more ephemeral than all but a handful of China’s dynasties.
And if one defines democracy as "anything with more freedom than China"....Well, that's too complex, let's just compare America's last 238 years to China's last 238.
Compare the flawless stability of Chinese authoritarian rule, interrupted only by minor glitches like the Cultural Revolution, Great Leap Forward, The collapse into warlord rule for half a century or so, the Boxer rebellion, the Tiaping Rebellion (20,000,000 dead), the Muslim rebellion of 1862-1877 (8,000,000 - 12,000,000 dead), the Great North China Famine/cannibal apocalypse (10,000,000 dead) plus this or that every decade, most of which didn't even kill more than a million. (EDIT: On second thought, it kind of sounds unstable, but when you factor in that the Chinese feel less pain, and value human life a lot less than us, they come out ahead.)
Meanwhile America has suffered nonstop chaos in the form of the War of Yankee Aggression, Obamacare, Monicagate, Benghazigate, Lapelpingate, Fistbumpgate, Chelsea's pimple-gate, Dandelion-on-the-WhiteHouse-lawn-gate, I could go on and on.
Now, China hasn't been completely tranquil. They did face "a vast rebellion at Tiananmen Square.
That uprising was decisively put down on June 4, 1989. The Chinese nation paid a heavy price for that violent event, but the alternatives would have been far worse."That's an understatement! Protesters blocking traffic is bad enough in the west, where people don't all drive as badly as women, but imagine all the crashes and roadkills that must have resulted from disrupted traffic in China.
The West seems incapable of becoming less democratic even when its survival may depend on such a shift. In this sense, America today is similar to the old Soviet Union, which also viewed its political system as the ultimate end.Got that? Obama is a commie, 9-11 changed everything, freedom isn't free. Democracy is a satanic cult. Bring back Bush and GIVE ME DICTATORSHIP OR GIVE ME DEATH!
