the reason to have banned elections in hong kong is to lower the ecomomic power of hong kong by haveing civil unrest in that city, while other chinese ecnomic districts recieve more investments and development as those areas are peaceful and stable

Most of Chinese would believe that in some 20 to 30 years, China will be "democratic" too, with multiple parties system
Democracy isn't always good.You cannot take certain important decisions for your country which would benefit the country with multiple party systems ( like what we have in India right now , a coalition government ).There always these people who keep proving any decision the government takes wrong for their own selfish benefit and don't think about the country.I think China wouldn't have achieved whatever it has in the last 20-30 years if it weren't a communist/capitalist state.
( USA might be an exception. )

It also means you can't oppose the government, if you do you are dead meat.Tomorrow if the goverment says they will bull doze your house because they want to build a railway line there and also they won't give you any compensation for it you cant go to court to oppose them.There are always advantages and disadvantages to any form of government.

China and USA are two extreme examples I think ?!? both successful in their own way ?[/quote]

AI, China is always a unique nation, there is probaly no perfect national government style for china, say democracy wont work because counting the votes ans those are too much, and chinas always in need of a dictatorship for governing.....

Also, their screwed up system wont work in china because simply..... too many people and definetly more corruption will occur: just look at russia with democracy
