In this article, the writer discusses that the U.S. criminal justice system is framed after the ideal of justice for all and equal protection for all through a common civil law, interpreted by its courts. On the other hand, the writer notes that codified laws and statutes established by the legislature have guided China's criminal justice system. The writer discusses that the cultural differences between the U.S. and China are seen to be simplified and bridged by modern information technology, and many observe concrete progress in the replacement of the rule of men with the rule of law. The writer concludes that some still believe that Mao Zedong is the greatest revolutionary, that Abraham Lincoln was a dictator who destroyed the ideals of the colonists and that the American criminal justice system has now become one of the most corrupt in the world.
