适度腐败 (shì dù fǔ bài): moderate level of corruption
On May 29, 2012, the Global Times posted an article entitled, "Fighting Corruption is a Crucial Battle for Chinese Society."
The article stated that the "public must understand . . . the objective fact and reality that China has no way of entirely suppressing corruption without sending the whole country into pain and confusion."
The article caused an outpouring of criticism from people who felt they were being required to accept as normal a "moderate level of corruption." The firestorm of criticism was only made worse by the fact that the article appeared in several places, including on QQ.com's website as "China Must Permit Some Corruption, the Public Should Understand."
