Ph.D candidate and pastor Andrew Hong writes on how Western and Chinese cultures approach the concept of law from very different perspectives:
In Confucianism far from being blind, it is expected that the law will in fact differentiate between persons on the basis of their circumstances and status.
On the one hand Westerners are appalled by the corruption and nepotism that seems so widespread. It is simply unjust. And on the other hand Easterners cannot imagine not bending the rules to benefit a trusted and respected colleague. It is simply inhumane.
