Why are Majority of Chinese Dishonest?

Chinese with self-consciousness have a common question: Why is it so difficult to tell the truth in China? Actually, there is no need to wonder because the people in China cannot survive without lies. Not that the citizens don’t want to be honest, they can’t--- the citizens are not allowed to speak facts because truth is “prohibited” by the government. This is a society where government officials, from top to bottom, are full with hypocritical words; where social media stuck with forked tongue, and profiteer suck up the blood of this nation. How can anyone maintain his/her integrity and genial nature within this environment?

In most of the countries, telling truths is easy because one don’t need to sacrifices or gains courage to state facts while saying lies required a great amount of courage since there are severe consequences for lies, usually lead to broken reputation or destruction. China is just the opposite. It is easy to tell a lie--- if the upper guys, the bosses, like to hear these lies, there is no scruple but promotion and wealth. Chinese people’s dishonesty came from the dishonesty of laws and government. Ever since the cultural revolution in China, integrity and honesty had become the symbol of foolishness and shame in the eyes of Chinese. In the legal system, one motto was well known: confess for a commute, end up jail time forever; resist and deny, go home and enjoy life. This popular phrase did not appear out of thin air but concluded from the real experience of countless of offenders. One violates laws, confesses like spitting beans, hoping to be released for the active attitude, but end up drawing more question and endless interrogation, finally end up in extending detention and jail time for the "wrong" attitude; While others, without one word, resist until early release due to lacks of substantial evident and inability to rule. This kind of ridiculous stories had happened in every state of China, leading gossips among citizens. For similar reasons, the dishonesty in Chinese society was encouraged by the common fraudulent behaviors such like violation of laws and stipulation. Without violating the laws, the businessman will not gain any profits; salesman can’t make any friends; officials can not establish any achievement; and men, will not able to survive. There is no benefit in telling the truth. Overtimes, violation of laws, stipulation, and discipline became a norm in the society, leading others to adapt and copy from the evil. Therefore, both officials and citizens viewed the violation of laws and illegal activities as normal--- everybody would get in once in a while---so, there is no way to punish one individual and no law that can suppress this decaying society from rotten. At this point, who cares about integrity and honest? Did those qualities worth a penny? No. One con will lead to another, and lies worsen by time. “Honesty can’t turn into food nor appeal to complement”--- To the decaying integrity of this nation.
