He is the most respectful leader in China modern history. For a country of the size of China, there has to be some strict rules to follow, and laws to enforce the compliance. Don't think any ordinary people would feel their social lives in any way are restricted unless they breach the laws. During the country fast economic growth period since early 80s, the country has also developed a strong corrupt social system, with almost everything in life needs to be resolved through bribery. The Chairman Xi initiated the anti-corruption revolution, attacking on those who abused their advantageous political and financial position to exploit economical benefit for themselves and their families. He alleged all senior officials to publish their personal income, declared their relationship with other officials, restricted business entertainment and travel spending, introduced various vital policies blocking ways for bribery, corruption. He is an iron man of China. Under his leadership, I'm sure that the nation will be even more successful in the years to come.
