Categories: East Asia, China, Arts & Culture, Development, Politics

In a new published book entitled Lu Xun & Hu Shi: Two Chinese Intellectuals in the 20th Century [1] the author made a thorough analysis about the mutual relation between the process of democratization and Chinese national virtue. This book and its theme raised a lot discussion online. Blogger bbcjy [2]wrote[zh] on Feb 27, that democratization and national virtue can be the impetus of each other so the ‘inadequate national virtue’ is not an excuse for not carrying out the political reform.
