In China, family corruption is generated from the political ethics with vague boundaries between public and private, the clanism ethics with "Ever the dog swaggers when its master wins favor" and the familyism ethics with "The child and the father conceal their crimes from each other". It is very easy to speed up the corruption of public power and induce political crisis. Therefore, it is necessary to suit the remedy to the case and establish a more targeted supervision and early warning system to prevent similar problems in the future.
