Re: Dear China,
The countries which have democratic governments don't do most of those things, and where injustices do occur, they can be changed. A lot of them have done those things, and I have repeatedly argued that past injustices do require present atonement, but it's not the same thing. When antidemocratic actions as described occur in those countries, you see activism, protest, and eventually change. That is why your comparison is invalid. Democracies don't have to be perfect in order to have the moral high ground. They just have to be better. They are.
