Qiao MuQiao Mu — Yesterday Professor Wang Jisi came to a lecture at our university and said the American spirit is characterized by four traits: the legal tradition and the adherence to the rule of law; the continuity and consistency of its core values; technological and institutional innovation; and a developed civil society and the ability to correct [their own] mistakes. A student said “Having heard the lecture I feel the Chinese spirit is the very opposite of the American spirit.” Are the university and Professor Wang engaged in double-dealing?
