Should China become more democratic, or should democracies become more like China?

Democracy and China” has generated much debate in recent years. Some find China wanting for not being democratic, and find its ruling party falling short of legitimacy on account of the absence of general and free elections. On the other end of the spectrum there is the view that it really is Western-style liberal democracy based on the idea of one person-one-vote that should learn from China, perhaps not from the Chinese system as it currently exists, but from a Confucianism-inspired, improve version. Who is right?
