Laws are certainly important, but laws had also existed in China's long history, and such laws always favored the privileged and powerful and the common folks were often treated worse than animals. During Republican China, peasants continued to be oppressed and despised and that was a big reason for their massive support of the Communist Party. Since 1978, laws that favor the connected has resulted in some getting enormously rich while others gave their blood, sweat and tears to build the nation. More people have died of pollution-related diseases, work accidents, suicides, etc., than ever before. This was one big reason for the present lower population growth - not merely because of "family planning." So, as Martin Luther King Jr. noted, there are just laws and unjust laws. Laws that protect the rich and powerful versus egalitarian laws that ensure proper distribution of wealth to all sectors of society. A true socialist state must protect the masses against the laws of the jungle epitomized by the "market economy" hoax.
