Many people don't realize there are village and town level elections in
China. I'm fairly certain at least over 90% if not all of the villages
and towns have leaders democratically elected. (Note: the government
usually don't pick the candidates, but voting fraud happen from time to
time from what I heard. Yes, this is what happens when there's a
democracy without proper voter education and regulations, most
importantly, without a real voting culture. people just buy votes.)
Therefore I have no reason to question the authenticity of this
documentary. Common, it's an election between three third graders.If
you think Chinese government care enough to stage this documentary you
are most definitely paranoid.
This documentary itself actually made cases for both pro-democracy and anti-democracy arguments. On one hand, it's scary to have uneducated voters and unregulated voting process in a democracy; on another hand, without real democracy, the imitation can only be so crude and cruel.
