THE GOOD AND THE BAD


23 2011
As far as China is concerned, society does not reject everything that is associated with the elites. Ordinary people believe that there are two kinds of elites: bad ones and good ones. The Chinese tend to look at local elites as bad ones and at some national elites as good ones. Many have made tremendous efforts to go to Beijing, the capital, in the hope of finding ‘real’ justice. They know local elites are bad because many have suffered in their hands. But they still hope that national elites, especially President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao, are good ones because they have appeared to be very much con cerned with the underprivileged.
