The use of money and other material incentives is known as extrinsic motivation, whereas non-material incentives such as love of nation and people are known as intrinsic motivation. Studies have shown that it is intrinsic motivation that lasts, whereas extrinsic motivation often ends when material rewards shrink or are taken away. The first generation of Chinese leaders worked hard because of their patriotism and intense love of the people. That was the reason how a China that was known as "the sick man of Asia" became a strong power by 1976, when the country doubled its average life expectancy within a generation. By then, China had progressed from a country that was unable to make a reliable hammer in1949 to one that could produce intercontinental missiles, nuclear submarines, and satellites. In 1950, very few Asian countries recognized the Chinese People's Republic: by 1976, every Asian country wanted an embassy in Beijing. China at the time was still poor, but its dramatic progress and, equally important, its moral stature had impressed all of Asia and the world. Before Chairman Mao passed away, nearly every Asian leader would make a pilgrimage to see him in the Chinese capital. Those leaders included Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore, Tun Razak of Malaysia, as well as leaders from Cambodia, Thailand, the Philippines, etc. One Filipino leader said that "if you treat China well, China would surely reciprocate." And, if I recall rightly, it was Cambodia's Norodom Sihanouk who said that while he respected France, he loved China."

China was able to attract such accolades because it had truly pulled itself up by its own bootstraps. It was fearless internationally because it had the support of the vast majority of the Chinese people. It never needed to resort to garbage talks like "soft power" or "more communications" with the world. China simply led by example, and it was enough for the vast majority of the world's nations to send it back to the United Nation's Security Council, in defiance of wishes of imperialist nations.

On the topic of corruption , there has been some talk from misguided individuals that China should forgive'corupt officials their past sins in order to have a cleaner government.  This is a fallacy; forgiving past corrupt sins will only encourage more corruption. It is to be hoped that commonsense will prevail over such misguided thoughts, and that China will never go down that path of 'forgiving' past sins of coruption! All corrupt officials, past and present, must be brought to book, as a deterrent to others!

What made China a great Nation was not its military might nor its material wealth but its cultural brilliance which influenced other East Asian countries such as Korea and Japan. That cultural heritage which is based on Confucian culture became the moral, spiritual and intellectual foundations of East Asian Civilization.

Qin Shi Huang Di founded the Imperial State of the Chinese Empire based on Qin's Legalism where the Emperor rule by law under the Mandate of Heaven. But Qin's Legalism wasn't enough to maintain the Chinese Empire which collapsed into rebellion shortly after his death. The Han Dynasty then adopted Confucianism as the official State ideology which defined the moral, spiritual and intellectual values of the Confucian Scholar-Officials who administered the Imperial State for and on behalf of the Emperor. In other words, Qin's Legalism was enforced through the medium of Han Confucianism which compelled the Emperor to rule by law based on the moral principles of Heaven.

Mao Zedong founded the Socialist State of the People's Republic of China based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism where the People rule by right of Revolution. But as a revolutionary ideology, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism did not lead to a harmonious society with a prosperous economy in a politically stable country. After Deng Xiaoping adopted the market economy, China then experienced rapid economic growth but at great expense to its moral, social and physical environment. China can fight corruption by going back to the moral, spiritual and social values of its Confucian roots because what China needs today is not traditional Confucianism of Imperial China with its medieval beliefs and feudal practices but modern Confucianism recreated for Socialist China of the 21st Century.
