The west has become sort of a homogeneous entity with so-called democracy being a universally accep ...

The "Western democracy" has been "imperfect" of course. Even in the US, Trump won because of its imperfections. And Germany was a "Western democracy" before Hitler ruined it in the 1930's. The fact that the Philippines has also failed doesn't invalidate the "basic model". Look at Japan. the ROK, Taiwan and Singapore - which have been more successful. Success requires hard work - and good luck!
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

You are using the wrong references to make your case.
ROK has plunged into political turmoil, with all their democratically elected presidents facing criminal charges after they stepped down or was impeached, and if you are history-savvy, you should know that their economical takeoff has nothing to do with the so-called democracy.
Singapore essentially is under what is called an authoritarian regime, a perfect example of pseudo democracy, but its economy has been booming.
I even don't bother to pick fault with Taiwan's democracy, which is a farce, and has done nothing more than dividing the people and stunting its economical growth.
Democracy is apparently not for those peoples.
Believe it or not, it's true.

You are blind to reality. Even in nominally communist China talk is about the future of "democra ...

Paradoxical ...
Believe it or not, it's true.
