The law regulates people’s behavior and can punish illegal behaviors compulsory, but it cannot replace the problem of solving people’s ideology and morality. China has always had the idea of complementing German and criminal laws and using Confucianism and Law. The law is the law of the other, the morality is self-discipline, and the two need to be used together. If everyone can consciously carry out moral restraint, the illegal things will be greatly reduced, and compliance with the law will have a deeper foundation.
