    Under performing Indian Democracy/ high performing Chinese authoritarian regime Whom to choose?

    In this century both India and China have global role to play,despite rapid economic development ,they carry baggage of outdated concepts ,past backwardness, experiment of socialism.
    , Being an Indian I found Indian democracy sustained  but indiscipline, lack of determination and dedication, many goals were missed Then how to claim power and play a role in global development?China with authoritarian regime simply  set  the target and achieved, they claim role and funding African and Asian countries, systematic way to showcase  governance to developing nations. gen next  prefer China

    I am an Indian, I will go for what we have, I mean Indian Democracy. It is true that China emerges as fast growing country in every area. But it does not mean that we follow them. We can make better results if we correct some of our ways.
    For growth of a country, people play too an important role as government. And a democratic country is made by its people. So somewhere we are wrong because we select wrong people to run our country.

    Democracy always better than any other system of govt.  But lack of discipline should mars its aim.

    I think China is about to implode.  They have very little control or grasp of the natural consequences of what they are doing.  The 3 rivers dam, for instance, is on the verge of catastrophic failure.  China has runaway pollution and it's economy is in a constant state of flux and turmoil. Without substantial change I doubt it can last another 25 years.
    The problem with the Chinese government, as with all autocracies, is that it doesn't care about the individual.  Like an engine where each part needs what it needs to continue to function at the highest possible level, modern countries need infrastructures that allow everyone to communicate and they also have to create an environment that motivates each person to achieve.  To do this the Chinese government would create a threat to it's own existence.  India is wiser and more likely to overcome it's internal problems.

    One of our ministers went to China and returned happily he was asked why the Roads in China are so good and clean ?.

    Minister said - They are in China so it is good and clean.

    As long as we have such type of ministers we will never meet China's progress.

    Hang the corrupt and sack inefficient Bureaucrats who are more worried about their promotion and pension rather than their wORK..

    I would be far happier to live as a citizen of India than a citizen of China, you have the freedom for change. In China they have a mega size property bubble that is about to implode and make the Europe problem look like nothing.

    I would love to go with the democratic regime as I know being in this system, the fundamental rights of every citizen are protected and everyone is free to express his/her feeling  of happiness or sorrow. The high performing Chinese authoritarian regime is no doubt making rapid economic growth but the fact is that its countrymen are not allowed to speak anything about the shortcomings in their regime and even the media is functional but under the  censorship imposed by its high authoritarian, A well known saying that "Don't judge a book by its cover" thus  is  the right answer!.

    I'd choose the Democracy. I'd prefer the freedom to live my life as I choose,  help select my government and perhaps be a bit poorer for it, than have all of my choices made for me, have no choice in my "leaders", and have a bit more money.

    If the end is all you care about and what happens to the People isn't, then China has a workable system for the privledged few.  The rest are just slaves, but, who cares, the end was achieved.

    Even though their was poverty, hunger, etc in India, at least the men (and a few, rare, exceptional women) of the country had some say in what was happening and it wasn't just the elite of the politically powerful that could effect change and play a role.  If that is your goal, then India is the better choice.

    Folks here are confused.  No democracy exists in the world today (save wobbly Iceland) - only sham ornamental democracies.  The globalists and their multinational henchmen have taken over democratic processes and are intent on reducing the general population in numbers, lifestyle and freedoms.  The west has almost completely succumbed - global warming treaties will signal the completion of 'enclosure'.  China will inscrutably resist, India will bumble so much they may escape the worst but both will press to become beneficiaries in the New World Order, and will probably succeed.  The question as posed obscures these fundamentals that underlie both, but between the two, it will be China whose obduracy protects what is left of democracy (or nascent emerging democracy) - despite appearances to the contrary.  Bet on China.

      Bet on China? What's the terminnation day of the bet? China as you know it is going down from mismanagement of natural and human resources. Bet on India. They got soul! They are on their way up if no one stops them.

    We have a saying in this country, "Money talks."

    Sometimes, leaders sacrifice their own fortune for the benefit of their nation, like early American statesmen. Other times, they suck the nation's fortune dry by incompetence or greed.

    Think about ancient Persia. Xerxes excelled. by the time  Darius III came along, it was a mess. It was the same political system with a different set of players and conditions. There are a lot of factors that must fall into line to have a successful government. First, you must know how to measure success.

    If I had to chose today? India or China? India!

    I am only judging by the heart of the people.

      I disagree.  China will not go down - completely - but will reluctantly allow change.  A termination day posits breakup but who is to say the US will not break apart?  Or Canada, or the EU?  India has already broken apart (partition)!!

    A democracy is better any day. I have an idea what my nation Nigeria went through in over 35 years of dictatorship. Whatever it is, democracy and freedom matters most. Whatever the progress seems like, I will never trade it for ma freedom of expression anyday
