This essay takes issue with Samuel P. Huntington’s negative view of Confucianism in relation to democracy as well as with Minxin Pei and Andrew Nathan’s ideas that “Confucian culture” is an impediment to the rise of democracy in China. It also discusses why constitutionalist reform failed, explains that contemporary China practices “rule by law” not the “rule of law,” that the judicial system is a tool of the Chinese Communist Party, and that the post-1989 extreme nationalism and rule by the Chinese Communist Party are the real reasons why China cannot develop democracy.

Keywords:   Nationalism, Democracy, Confucianism, Constitutionalism, Reform, revolution
