War on Corruption

February 23, 2007

Pick up any Chinese newspaper, magazine or read a blog online and you’ll probably heard about some corrupt official in some province, city or SOE that has run off with prostitutes and dirty loans and settled down in Canada. Hu, in what some have called simply a house cleaning of his adversaries, has been waging a “war on corruption.” In the latest news, China is looking to establish a corruption prevention center. Forget what the experts say, what do Chinese netizens have to say.

Comments are in Chinese from 凯迪社区

“Only ghosts believe their own leaders can prevent their own corruption”

“another potentially corrupt unit”

“This is miserable for the people, another department to share the profits of corruption.”

“there is only one real kind of supervision in the world, thats supervision under a free press”

“What happens if the officials in the State Corruption Prevention Department are corrupt? You can establish a State Corruption Prevention Department Corruption Office, hehe.”

就一个党派 没有竞争的 很难发展好啊
“just one political party without competition, its hard to develop well.”

China is preparing to build a strong and powerful “State Corruption Prevention Department Conglomerate & Co. Ltd.”

可以预见,国家预防腐败局将成为今后油水最多的衙门。”it’s foreseeable, the State Corruption Prevention Department will become the most profitable government office”

    If other developing countries have taught us anything, China’s corruption will keep going up as it moves towards democracy from current totalitarian government.
