The Value of Life, the Meaning of Death

Have you ever wonder why we live? What’s the purpose of our existence?

Most people wouldn’t even bother to understand their existence, since they know their limits or they give up understanding it, or they are just too dumb to fathom complex concepts.

We in the society have always countered suicidal events, why the kids or the persons want to die so badly to end their lives?

We know our limits but we couldn’t do anything to stop it, the sense of powerless is felt by many men. ...READ MORE

Why Immigrate?

Why would you immigrate?

The reason is simple, political reasons.

Mainland China is becoming more and more totalitarian with no end on sight, this bothers me.

And then, some Chinese would brush it off like nothing and tell me, “Why would you even bother with politics? As long as you can live, politics isn’t important.”

It is important, and involving in politics actively in a democracy can subsequently change citizens’ lives, whereas in a totalitarian state it’s impossible. ...READ MORE

Ideas Never Die

Ideas never die. An idea doesn’t take any form, but it can set a wildfire across people’s minds.

The world seems to underestimate too much on the power of ideas.

It’s like knowledge, the infinite amount of possibilities lied behind.

The only thing, is to make way for ideas to shine, to burn, to spread away like wildfire.

Dumb Things Please Stop

I feel pretty tired lately.

Facing a lot of dumb problems, and the dumb people who make these dumb problems.

When I look back at my decision initially, I don’t regret it.

I never regret of choosing to tune out of the system and start my own adventure, and what’s been proven, is that, my choice was correct.

However, there is this “correct” path I once was supposed to take–a path that involved abiding by the rules.

2014

When I firstly got off my high school due to tremendous mental pressure, I felt relieved. Later I pushed myself immediately towards applying for foreign universities. ...READ MORE

Self-Inspection

A sense of entitlement clouds your judgement.

What’s more toxic than arrogance?

China has some serious moral problems that no one talks about.

I find that being with friends is the point of having fun, not competing. Competing with your friends when you are together takes out the fun of the natural activity and adds disgruntlement to yourself.

My parents are in no way good people.

My father is a selfish arrogant prick plus a bully to his family. My mother is timid. ...READ MORE

Understanding Trust, In China and the West

This is a post from Harvard Business Review in 2015. It tackles into the extremely relevant side of Chinese society and ecosystem. This discussion based on trust is the fundamental difference between western societies and the Chinese one.
