Giving privileges to rich people hurts social justice “A number of new events are worth our attention. First, a directive issued by the Zhangzhou Education Bureau, Fujian Province, states that children of big taxpayers can get 20 points more in their senior high school entrance exam.

True, private entrepreneurs constitute an important force in promoting the country’s economic progress and it is, therefore, necessary to offer them channels through which they can participate in political affairs. But this can only be done by improving the institutions and mechanisms with regard to citizens’ getting involved in political affairs, instead of endowing political privileges to a portion of the citizenry. ” Kommentar von Sun Liping, Qinghua Universität (People’s Daily Online/ China Daily).
