Example text

Since then, hundreds of articles on this issue have been published in magazines and newspapers. Most contributors have criticized China’s duty-based conception of law and its one-sided tendency to emphasize duty over right. ” This claim reiterates Liang’s idea and argument of eighty years ago for a right-based legal system. The seventh relationship in Liang’s civic nationalism took a constitutionalist form: However, if we do not have a constitution, we will not be able to have the rule of law.

T]hus I once said that there are only members of the family (zhumin), but no citizens (shimin) in China. For China never had shimin, the so-call “citizen” in English. (Liang, 1999, vol. 2, p. 730) This emphasis on civil associations and communities was one of Liang’s most important innovations, and it has obvious relevance for us today. To appreciate this, one must look at the efforts of contemporary Confucian scholars to deal with – or to avoid – this issue. In the Great Learning, the continuum of human cultivation and political transformation proceeds from the self to the family, to the state and to the world.

The many assumptions in this framework focused on the views 20 YANG X IAO that China is civilization or the world (tianxia); that the Confucian way (dao) or Confucian rituals and morals (li-yi) are universally true; and that the sovereignty of the empire (tianxia) lies in the emperor (tianzi), who is the Son of Heaven (tian). In Liang’s writings, cultural monism remained a major target throughout his life. For example, his civic nationalism, which holds that China is a nation and the sovereignty of the nation lies in the people or citizens, is the result of a direct negation of the assumption.
