Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In this case I mean that China has not had even the opportunity to well develop and disseminate the concepts and the legal system on which WesternTM ideas of "Public Interest" and "public integrity" rely. These depend crucially on actual pluralism in the society, which, in China is only beginning to emerge. In China it has traditionally been and still largely remains the State vs. individuals.
