"From English teacher to town planner..."  ? Why do you hate me so much? I thought we were frien ...

Your piece makes interesting reading, but it is very academic. You forgot that Chinese culture is very different from Western culture.  The Chinese have, for centuries, relied on guanxi, not on laws, in their daily lives.  In fact they dont even know what laws are, and how important laws are for a harmonious society.  It is only lately that their government tried to turn them into a nation ruled by law and not by man, of course, with dismal result.  Whatever laws brought in, the people just simply ignore them, and often with impunity too!  For instance, they smoke right in front of 'no smoking' signs, and traffic offenders continue to drive even after their licences are withdrawn.  And the lady who ignored the rules in the Beijing safari park by alighting from her car, paid a very dear price for that, being badly mauled, and having her mother mauled to death by a Siberian tiger!
The Chinese are probably the world's hardest people to govern, simply because they ignore laws, rules and regulations.  Only harsh penalties can keep them in line!  A softly softly approach does not work with them.

Deer Mr Pin & Pun,

Iam rather disappointed that you perceive Chinese people as basically untea ...

You are a stubborn mule, Miss seneca. Harsh penalties must go hand in hand with enforcement, one without the other is not going to work

Are you CPC member?
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.
