    An old article but nonetheless still relevant in as far as the similarities to the situation within our country.

    The Chinese don't mess around, no excuses. But is this too harsh, is execution too far? What would happen if officials convicted of grand corruption were executed (how would you even define "grand" corruption as opposed to just corruption, is it the amount of money involved, if so how much makes it grand...), do you think it would reduce it or even put an end to it?
