Xi Jinping has a PhD in law and ideology from Tsinghua, one of the top universities in China, an attestation to his sagacity and authority. Unsurprisingly, he harbors many unorthodox ideas on how legal systems should work.
Xi does not believe in the so-called western interpretation of the rule of law. His signature philosophy on the matter, dubbed “Xi Jinping Thought on the Rule of Law”, explicitly states that the party should have the final say on all legal matters--i.e. precisely the opposite of what the rule of law means. Only Adolf Hitler Thought on Diversity and Inclusion evokes a stronger sense of juxtaposition.
