The Chinese Government are not the "big bad" which people think they are in fact they have been making steps to introduce the worlds largest version of Direct Democracy however, they will have a set Government as well.
They are doing this so the Chinese people can begin to have their say on moral laws which was the idea but not technical laws they would have no understanding of.
The next step is to start bring in Government elected bodies that have this specialist knowledge and badda-bing you will have a very affective system of Government. I am just hoping they keep it on this road and go down the Swiss/Swedish version of freedom rather than the American/British version.

The thing about China is that it's presenting a very revolutionary form of government besides the usual conservative/liberal garbage. They're using an authoritarian system that is very willing to relingquish control to citizens while sticking to Mao's original doctrine. In fact, this is very close to what Mao was originally calling for.
