ZHONG defines tolerance doing one’s utmost and putting oneself in the other’s place, which is similar but different from tolerance in Western tradition and SHU means acting according to your heart. This concept of toleration combines the practice of toleration with the attitude of tolerance, says Pei Wang from Beijing’s’ Tsinghua University.

The Tao of ZHONG and SHU is not only a combination of rhythm and emotion but also a combination of unity and diversity when it comes to politics.
