Why does China`s government cheat common people, especially without election rights and survival rights in China.

I smell fish. Flounder, perhaps?

This could be a joke. All right, I give up--Why DOES China`s government cheat common people, especially without election rights and survival rights in China?

forget exactly where, but somewhere I read on China-Rising website that the person is not smart enough to choose for himself who to vote for and what his rights should be, so its easier if the CPC party chooses for them.

By having only one major party dictating how you should behave and what your freedoms are, it saves you the trouble of having to think for yourself, and helps keep everyone united and stops people from getting bad ideas.

Most people are too concerned about feeding themselves to give a shit about who the local government gangster is.

Is India any better off than China for 50 odd years of democracy? All I see in India is mass confusion in government.

Ok, just in case this is a wind up, why DOES China`s government cheat common people, especially without election rights and survival rights in China?

Maybe because that's the way it's been for all 5,000 of China's glorious history as the "middle kingdom" and greatest civilization on Earth? **tongue planted firmly in cheek**

Chinese people have no human rights because human rights increase the accountability of the central government for their actions, limit the options available to it to quash opposition, and remove its ability to brainwash millions into political ignorance.

So far it has worked because the most people on the mainland people have become so ignorant (unbeknown to themselves) that the dont think to question whether or not they have rights. Even those that would ask questions are disposed of either tacitly (how many missing people?) or by brute force (Tiannemen Square).

But, the political system is a little different now, and may change altogether since the adoption of a market economy, although some would argue otherwise and say that a market economy simply gives more financial power to the central government (arguably, of course).

They have human rights, but an Asian version. Like Singapore.
