Why can’t a billion Chinese people rise up and overthrow the Communist Party and make China democratic?
Imagining you have 2 options:
A. Enjoying the fast economic growth in your country every year, one of the best city infrastructure in the world, stable and safe society for personal career development, better education in China as well as opportunity sending kids to a foreign university for better education, and the ability of traveling around every year.
BUT, you do not have the right to elect your president directly.
B. Enjoying over 10 years chaos in your country during your golden age. Ruining the best city infrastructure, opportunity to be killed by a bullet every minute, being forced to join the army to support the side you may not support, no education for your children or even worse, and your children need to join the army.
After 10 years chaos, it may highly possible lead to neither democracy nor wealthy. (Last time we overthrown a government with the name of “democracy and freedom”, we built up the CPC government.)
So, why do we bother to do that again now?
