    China's growing prosperity is clear for all to see.

    Countries are like people. They have personalities that reflect the character of a particular country, its culture, history, traditions, and people.

    America is a country based on individualism and democracy works very well for Americans. In America, the basic unit of society is the individual and his/her ambitions.

    However, looking at Chinese history, it is obvious that China's Confucian culture is a collectivist society. Chinese people are most comfortable working in groups. For the past 30 years, the economic and technological advancements accomplished under the CCP have been astonishing.

    Thirty years of breathtaking progress have shown that China has found a socioeconomic system that works best for Chinese people. China will continue to pursue "socialism with Chinese characteristics" for the betterment of all Chinese people (except for the tiny disgruntled democracy agitators working for the CIA).

    It is unreasonable to call for democracy in China at this time. Democracy in China under Chiang Kai Shek and the Kuomintang did not work. China was impoverished and invaded by foreigners. Today, under the CCP, China possesses advanced thermonuclear weapons and stealth technology to defend the country.

    The CCP is doing a great job and it is governing China with the consent of the people. Someone once said that the CCP is the best government that China has had in the last 5,000 years. 88% of Chinese agree.

    Survey: 88 percent of Chinese trust government - People's Daily Online

    "Survey: 88 percent of Chinese trust government
    16:04, January 27, 2011

    On Jan. 26, the 2011 Edelman Trust Barometer, which ranks institutions by the amount of trust people have in them, was released by Edelman, one of the top five global public relations firms. The report shows that China ranked first in the world in terms of trust in government with 88 percent trust.

    The tradition in recent years is that Edelman releases the results of the annual Edelman Trust Barometer before start of the annual World Economic Forum meeting.

    Trust in government in China has increased by 14 percentage points, up from 74 percent to 88 percent. In addition, the trust in government in Brazil has risen sharply, up from 39 percent in 2010 to 85 percent this year.

    However, trust in government fell in the United States from 46 percent to 40 percent.

    Trust and democratic right to choose can be two un related issues the survey only goes to show that people of China believe their Govt. is doing good for them, if some people believe other wise the present form of Govt. has not out lest to express that.

    It fine and dandy as long as they believe them, in a Hypothetical situation if the acceptance rating falls there is nothing much the people can do about their Govt. here is were having the ability to vote out unpopular Govt. come in Handy.

    Well the collective vs individual culture is all Cr@p. Almost all East Asian cultures are collective in nature, so how come they did not end up with Chinese style communism? Look at Japan and S. Korea. We can leave the N. Koreans aside as they are more of a dictatorship.

    I think you guys are missing the wood for the trees here.

    Trust can mean different things. I trust the Chinese government. I trust them when they say they will build a highway from X to Y in Z number of years. I trust them when they say they will build a port in X years. And so on. The Chinese government is the most ruthlessly efficient government in contemporary history.

    My guess is that the people who voted on this poll had this kind of sentiment in mind.

    "Slaughter of the taxi drivers: Mexican gun gangs kill 13 in resort city of Acapulco
    By Daily Mail Reporter
    Last updated at 10:24 PM on 21st February 2011

    * Murders on eve of international tennis tournament
    * Players warned not to stray far from hotel - and leave town as soon as they are eliminated

    Thirteen taxi drivers were shot dead as Mexico's deady drug wars hit Acapulco with a vengeance.

    Corpses were strewn across the city over the weekend, inside cabs and in the street, where trails of blood flowed into the gutters.


    Turf battles rarely reach the tourist hub - and the timing of the killings was significant with a major international tennis tournament starting there today.

    The Mexican government has been forced to issue assurances of safety to players, who include David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco.
    ...
    The killing spree continued into Sunday with four more racking up the bloody death toll.

    Mexico's Public Security Secretariat reported that 13 taxi drivers in all were killed.

    Meanwhile, 53 people were killed in a 72-hour span in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, making it one of the deadliest three-day periods in recent memory, the state attorney general's office spokesman said yesterday.

    In the first 40 days of 2011, the state is averaging an incredible eight homicides per day."

    Edelman is a major Western public relations firm that conducted the survey

    Edelman (e.g. company behind "Edelman Trust Barometer") is the "world's largest independent public relations firm with over 3,100 employees in 54 offices worldwide." It is a private American firm and not under the control of any government. Did I confuse you by quoting a major Chinese newspaper? Here, I'll fix the problem and quote a major American newspaper instead.

    Davos Diary - The United States and the Trust Barometer

    "The United States and the Trust Barometer
    By Richard Edelman and Neal Flieger
    Posted at 11:27 AM ET, 01/25/2011

    According to the Edelman Trust Barometer, released this morning at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the United States ranks near the bottom of 23 countries in terms of trust in major institutions.

    In the wake of a year defined by corporate crises and government insolvency, we found remarkable resilience in business and government trust globally. Even in Ireland, whose economy is in shambles, trust in business actually increased as much as it did in buoyant countries such as Brazil and UAE.

    The stark exception was the United States, where respondents reported a drop in trust in both institutions, and where the composite trust score knocked the world’s largest economic power down from the top four in 2008, to the bottom four, alongside Russia and the UK. While business is trusted by 46 percent of informed publics, more than in the midst of of the worldwide financial crisis, the number now is 13 points lower than in 2008 and 8 points lower than last year. Trust in [U.S.] government is at 40 percent, off 6 points from last year.
    ...
    Richard Edelman is President and CEO of Edelman. Richard Edelman is the president and CEO of the world's largest independent public relations firm with over 3,100 employees in 54 offices worldwide. Edelman was most recently named "PR Agency of the Year 2009," "Large Agency of the Year 2009" by PRWeek for the third year in a row, "Agency A-List 2008" by Ad Age and "2007 Global Agency of the Year" by the Holmes Report. Neal Flieger is Chair of StrategyOne. With more than 15 years of public affairs experience in Washington, D.C., he has an extensive background in designing and implementing successful strategies in the corporate, political, and public policy arenas."

    Re: Mexico is a mess. Chinese would never accept Mexican-style democracy.

    MIG-23MLD proclaimed that Mexico's democracy is better than China's form of government. I disagree, because Mexican society is a mess. I merely took some recent headlines to prove my point. If your society is a backward mess, don't brag about it. Otherwise, I will refute it.

    I purposely avoided the more graphic stories of constant rapes, kidnappings, and beheadings in Mexico. Also, I intentionally did not post pictures to illustrate the Mexican mess. On balance, I think I was very generous.

    Anyway, what does U.S. democracy have to do with MIG-23MLD's post?
