A democratic China wouldn't fracture in to several parts. A very large majority of China's population are Han Chinese, unlike USSR that was an ethnic mosaic. China has a very long history as a country, unlike the USSR that was less than 70 years old and was made up of many fairly erecent occuped neighbours such as the Baltic states. I think it's most likely a Democratic China would be nationalistic, sort of Russia with real elections.

What exactly do you mean by "more conservative economic system"?
The protestors, contrary to what the world is being lied to about the Tiananmen Massacre Myth, was a mix of Maoists, Communists, blue collar workers, and students who all wanted different thing. It happens so some of the students wanted democracy. A great number of protestors wanted more Communism.

What they wanted was for the Communist party to implement political reforms. Which is didn't.

Says the enemies of democracy. Of course they do. They always have. Because they are the enemies of democracy.
