The real problem is that the majority of every dollar spent by government in the US is borrowed so you can't blame China for wanting nothing to do with western practices.
Heh. Guess which is the top country that the U.S. is borrowing from? [ustreas.gov] :)
I agree though that democracy isn't the only way to govern, and that there are many ways of governing that still give a vote to the people. And it's not our place to impose our will on them as it is for China to tell us what to do. But it is within our place to decide if we want to participate in their system or not. Which brings us back to Godaddy. GoDaddy was pushed out of China, they didn't pull out. They're pulling a Pee-Wee Herman by picking up their dropped bicycle and saying, "I meant to do that."
