Demands of Human Dignity

Rule of Law
"China has joined the World Trade Organization, and as you live up to its obligations, they inevitably will bring changes to China's legal system. A modern China will have a consistent rule of law to govern commerce and secure the rights of its people. The new China your generation is building will need the profound wisdom of your traditions. . . .Your ancient ethic of personal and family responsibility will serve you well."
