These people saying "democracy is wonderful for others, but not for us" is reminding me of those other videos on this site of women saying "being free from the burkha is not for us; this denigration is good for us."

The girl who had spent 3 months in the UK seems the more open minded as she faced direct criticism (and also learnt how to use the word "like"). These countries may be worlds apart, but the way we should treat our citizens should be the same.

Those values are human rights. Sure the Americans are overly proud of them and are hippocrites bringing democracy to Iraq & Afghanistan while being "butt buddies" with Saudi Arabia.

So the current situation in China is best for China? Ok, I can live with that, but is the current situation in China best for Hong Kong? Or best for Taiwan (not even part of China, but China claims it is), how about Senkaku islands? they belong to Japan, but China claims them and is trying to impose it's situation on them, the same as it tries to impose it's situation on Taiwan. You can't claim America is bad for it's actions and then go and do the same actions and claim you are good!

Thats right, America puts pressure on the middle east politically and they are called bad by China. But China points missiles at Taiwan, threatens them politically, threatens invasion and keeps them out of the UN and WHO. Talk about the pot calling the kettle.....!

what you don't seem to get is that democracy is just one political system. There is no absolute political system just a countries individual preference. And what these students rightly point out is that a system that suits you doesn't make you better and might not be what someone else chooses.

Actually you didn't read my post, I was making the point that I can accept that the current situation (political system) in China is ok for China. I never said it was wrong! What I said was wrong, is the fact that China is trying to force that situation (political system) onto other countries! The irony is that China accuses the US of doing this, yet China is doing it themselves!
