Everyone thinks China is the story of the 21st century when it is the only major industralized country with no democractically elected govt, no opposition party, severe limit on free speech and EVEN control of how many kids each person should have.
And that's the model for the 21st century? What am I missing?
You got something wrong. Chinese Government did good job by limiting 1 kids in last 20 years, otherwise China will have population 3 billion people instead of 1.3 billion. For a country to be super power, it has nothing to do between single or multi party system. If Government is corrupted, it will fall regardless you are democratic or multi party system.
