I don't think democracy means that one can do whatever he or she wants to, and the concept of democracy shouldn't be disapproved if some nation made a mess out of it.
Blame the government, not the word.

Of course, political reform should neither be rushed nor follow a set pattern. Each nation has its own problems to deal with and should apply their own solution to it.

Therefore, I'm fine if one day our government comes up with a democratic system fitting in Chinese characteristics, as long as it IS democratic at all. The problem is: Where is the bottom line? And who can decide the minimum resemblance each democratic system shares??

What I'm afraid of, is that a horse is no longer a horse when it's a white horse(<-Chinese idm.), which is pretty much the case of Socialism with Chinese characteristics.
