One country two systems is seriously troubled

The political economy of the People’s Republic of China could further get troubled with the lowest GDP growth on record. A trade war is escalating between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping while China accuses the West in general and the United States of America in particular for provoking protests in Hong Kong.

Whenever caught in a conflict with the oldest democracy in the world that is far away, the People’s Republic of China got good support from the largest democracy in the world that is in its neighbourhood. But recently the Chinese Government has further alienated the largest democracy also by crticising the Indian act of terminating a kind of ‘one country two systems’ in Kashmir. China has unnecessarily gone too far in its alliance with Pakistan that is constantly accused of provoking separatism and terrorism by the Indian side.

Whereas the problem in Hong Kong is continuing independently of all these factors, manifesting a failure of ‘One Country Two Systems’ policy in particular. ‘One China Policy’ showcasing ‘One Country Two Systems’ is seriously troubled with Hong Kong Administration increasingly alienating the people of Hong Kong. The government response is seemingly posing a threat to democracy in Hong Kong, anticipating any retaliation by Chinese people into a threat of democracy in mainland China as well.

Democracy Might Disintegrate China

The political power used to come through the barrel of the gun but now the right to govern is rigidly wired within the smartphone stage of internet age that is not going to let anyone govern without a popular vote for doing that anywhere in a wired world.

The People’s Republic of China has economically become a global pressure cooker without any political safety valves at home. This is further enhanced by amending the constitution for establishing Xi’s ideas as constitutional positions.

CPC controls the PLA and the government as well in the socalled People’s Republic of China but just like CPSU, endangering its political continuity in future, CPC is critically unprepared to compete democratically in its people’s real republic.

Economic growth in the most populous country, everyday enhances the largest number of public aspirations. All of those cannot ever be manifested through only one party led by only one thought of only one person at the helm of everything. ‘One Country Two Systems’ too brought in a few early ignition points within the country that Taiwan, behaving as another country, was unable to provide.

New democracy might spread by disintegrating the nation from within, as the political face off began in Hong Kong, has duly become its ignition switch. Seeing that well off Chinese already prefer to migrate elsewhere. The belt and road initiative would ultimately result in a bad debt for China without any political equity anywhere left.

Henceforth CPC would allow only a chaos to bring in any political change. That is how a probable political disaster is now constitutionally inbuilt in the order itself.
