It won't lead China to a harmonious society through increasing the death penalty and other punishments.
In 2011, the most popular proposal in National Congress is to increase the death penalty and other punishments to counter the severe and widespread polluted food scadals.
From the leading news reports On March 18, 2011, Primier Wen said it's a lack of honesty and credit; it's a deterioration of moral practice.
I think there is less death penalty and less punishments in a relative more harmonious society.
The poposal in National Congress to increase the death penalty and other punishments can only be considered as a treatment for symptoms of polluted food scandals.
It could cure the polluted food scandals through "cultivating honesty and credit among Chinese people, through the political reform, economic reform, through culture reform, through juridical and legislative system reform, through strengthening the law enforcment."
The words between "" are from Primier Wen in the dialogue with the government advisors. I agree with these words.
