The establishment of full fledged democracy with free and fair elections and the rule of law in China is considered highly desirable by most Americans. I agree it would be. However, a democratic Chinese government would be better able to entice its neighbors in Asia as well as non-western countries generally into joining a coalition led by them to overturn the existing global order dominated by the West. If the U.S. government were to become insolvent (quite possible by 2025), China, India and other non-western nations may even be able to force the West into joining a democratic world government with one person, one vote. Such a system would drastically reduce the power of western governments. An outcome like this would be good for the world as a whole but would at least temporarily reduce Americans' standard of living. For those of you are interested, you can find out more about this very plausible scenario in my book:

"Looking Backward:2050-2013". Just type in the key words "Ravi Morey" into the amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com website and the title will immediately pop up.

I wish you an exciting read!

Since the US government is one of the principal blockers of carbon markets, I'm not sure that my medium term economic interests are best served by domination by the West. The US is leading the planet toward ruin.
