How to Eradicate Corruption "十八-Style"

There are many ways to cut down corruption, so I will not go into all the variations.  Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.  I am only going to present one style of fighting corruption, which I wish to call "十八-Style" since the 18th Congress of the CPC seems to be completely devoted to rooting out corruption in order to save China, which is indispensable to bringing Chinese society to a higher level of lifestyle, one that is free from the fear of corrupt officials, and one that is free to join the people to the government in common goals, the most important of which is to bring the majority of the people into the middle class.

The first principle of the 十八-Style is that corruption can occur not just on an individual level, but can also occur on a collective level, regardless of how small or large that collective group is.

The second principle of the 十八-Style is that corruption can overlap between groups, including groups that contain only one member, i.e., the individual.

The third principle of the 十八-Style is that the common product of corruption is a failure to meet the goals or standards of social behavior, performance or production.

The fourth principle of the 十八-Style is that specifying, implementing, measuring, monitoring and correcting social or individual behaviors, performances or production goals or standards is the most comprehensive, most specific, and most systematic way to stop corruption in society.

The fifth principle of the 十八-Style is that fighting corruption should start with the simplest and proceed to the most complex, with the easiest to the hardest, with the quickest to the longest.

Applying these five principles of the 十八-Style means starting with the very top, the 7-member politburo, which Xi and Li have both done, on the get go, with great prescience and perspicacity.  Their ability to seize the opportunity encouraged me to contribute my piece of mind on how the initiative they started can be made to grow into a tree and bear a billion fruits.  Every level of government should set up its goals and standards of behavior, performance and production.  The first step should be what immediately comes to mind, that can be implemented right away, and show results that can be measured.  The last step should be to re-examine these goals and standards, and set a deadline to revise, renew or to add to these goals and standards, so that more and better results will be achieved in the next cycle.  The next cycle can be as short a week for a singing club, or a year for a school program.  Setting the pace of change is part of setting the goals and standards of behavior, performance and production.  As the whole symphony comes together, the Maestro, Xi Jinping, will have to rewrite the parts and the pieces so that they join each other in the right moment, with the right tempo, and build toward the right theme.  In this manner, the governance and discipline of a country follows the same rhythm as all great art, music and science, building on parts, but also recognizing that groups form units of larger groups and can intersect with each other.  By focusing on what should be done right, the tendency for individuals and groups to do wrong will necessarily diminish over time.  Corruption will never go away completely, but when it is surrounded by honesty, integrity, hard work, intelligence and energy, it naturally falls away as dust is shrugged off the back of a stallion charging into battle.  May China prosper toward its goal of a comfortable lifestyle for every individual, family, village, town, city, province and region, doing it the way its capable and young Maestro, Xi Jingping, is leading it - 十八-Style!!!

May I add that before all that you have suggested above can be implimented, first and foremost, the in-coming CPC must take back the control of the country's vital mouth piece, i.e. the China Daily from the control of foreigners!

Fighting Corruption Is Like the Wind Blowing Away Dead Leaves . . . Or, the Mighty River Washing Away Dead Trees and Debris . . . and the Rhythm of the Wind and the Water Is Confucian Morality in the Heart of Each and Every Person.

Successful political, economic and social movements follow the rhythm of the wind and water.  Looked at at the microscopic level, all movement is simple.  Everything seems to simply move in one net direction, even though some sway, like that of a pendulum may fool an observer into thinking nothing is really changing.  This is the level of morality, which Confucius discovered from even earlier sages like Yao and Shun, that at the individual level, one only needs to follow one moral compass - do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.  Apply this to every simple action or inaction that you do, and immediately, society becomes alive.  Looked from afar, you would say, the river ebbs and flows but relentlessly keeps moving in one purposeful direction.  To a poet, the river is dancing.  To a musician, the river is singing.  To a social scientist, the river's apparently contradictory movements actually create harmony through the diversity of movements.  This society is alive, is growing, and is moving steadily toward a better future.

To the engineer, this moving river can be made to do tremendous work, even when its energy is being stored only, as in a dam.  Stillness is not necessarily stagnation, when the potential energy of the nation is being raised day by day.  We see stillness in nature all the time.  When the dam is filling up, it looks still, but only because we are looking in the wrong direction.  We are looking for horizontal movement, when the actual movement being accomplished by the stillness is vertical in direction.  To use stillness to store up energy is part of the art of statecraft.  When the energetic youth is soaked up by the schools, requiring them to sit in class listening, writing, and thinking, ideas that will break all past barriers are being built up in their minds.  When they train at a vocational school day in and day out, skills are being built up that when unleashed collectively becomes an aircraft carrier overnight.  When lawmakers huddle in a chamber, and sit to discuss what laws would benefit their people the most, peace, order and progress are being stored up in words, sentences and paragraphs, that when implemented by the millions, move the entire nation out of its poverty, weakness and ignorance.  But each of these huge actions, at the microscopic level, looks so simple and repetitive, albeit at times seemingly going back and forth accomplishing nothing.  The unseen force that unites their individual seemingly random actions is their faith in their country, in their countrymen, and in their ability to change their future.  Gravity is unseen, but it is the force that makes the rivers flow, that allows the dams to generate electric power when its gates are opened.  Morality and trust are the unseen forces that move nations toward greatness.

In the great national battle against corruption, ordinary citizens, including children and the uneducated, may not be able to understand the broad designs of their capable leaders.  But they can help achieve those designs by simply following a moral principle in everything they do.  Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.  Reciprocity is the true morality.  Religiousness is not.  Religion may teach people to do good, but it can also teach people to do unjust things, especially to non-believers.  Reciprocity does not allow you to do unjust things to others, regardless of religion.  China is very fortunate to have as a foundation of its civilization, the moral principle of reciprocity, which serves as the mortar that holds its 1.3 billion people together as a single edifice.  In this sense, doing good in every small thing one does is the best way to help the country move forward.

Why?

Because when people follow the same moral principle in everything they do, one single principle of morality, rather than a dozen contradictory commandments that are subject to situational interpretation, then looked from afar, especially from the high heavens, they are basically all pushing in the same direction.  They form not isolated water molecules milling around in Brownian boredom.  They form instead the mighty Yangtze River that brings life, growth, strength, happiness and prosperity to all who are connected to it in any small or big way.

The dam is only as good and useful only when it can deliver what it is been built for. A dam clogged with debris, mud, stones, dead leaves and dead tree-branches and rubbish thrown into the dam would  become a liberty rather than an asset to the people. Likewise, it is true with the government of a country when it is over-staffed and overwhelmed with sycophants, corruption and nepotism !
