Chinese democracy

Chinese democracy?  Do those two words fit together?  It is the title of an album by Guns N Roses.  I cannot tell you much about the album but it has been a very long time in the making. 

A Guardian article says that a Chinese newspaper condemns the title as an attack on the Chinese nation.  That article also says that the title track refers to Falun Gong, a meditational movement that is persecuted by the Chinese authorities.  I have written previously about Falun Gong.
