NO, I have no any chance because we have not a free newspaper in China, which is banned by Chinese government.

NO, there only one party, CCP, in China, although the government declares China has other several parties, but they are wholly controlled by CCP.

Yes, in some Chinaís forums, you can say anything in the West including the democracy better than China, and criticize the CCP, but in public, such as in TV or newspaper, you can only say the West is better than China in some aspects, and donít mention the West democracy is better than China, of course, you donít have the chance. In a word, in public, you can not criticize the CCP, but in private, you can say anything you want to say and donít fear anything.

Ain't it maybe because you don't have parties to choose ?
Yes. No Choice for me, but I hope.

Yes, no any problem. However, the only drawback for me if I do so is that I can not enter in CCP and will probably lose many opportunities, for example, the promotion, corruption (a way to earn money for Chinese official), etc.

NO. I have never entered into courts, but as far as I know, the corruption of Chinese courts is getting severe. If you donít have money and relations, you had better not enter into courts.

Just for the sake of randomness, a couple of my friends just returned from China and they both greatly enjoyed the country and the people there.
