From what I can see, it ain't pretty.
No country has a monopoly on stupidity.
It does make democracy look flawed though. China may be on to something.
But so does Taiwan. Maybe it is not about political ideology but culture instead.
I was thinking about Eastern culture and Western culture and they have different roots.
Eastern Culture is influenced by Daoist-Buddhist values which emphasize the three jewels; compassion, frugality, and moderation.
Western culture is influenced by Judaeo-Christian-Islamic values including genocide of people for the benefit of God.
I think I like Eastern culture more.
