As a 90's in China, what Li said part is right but part is wrong.

I am not sure where Li's statistics came from, but it must be wrong. Since only about 30% graduates in 2013 get a job and more and more people, especially in Beijing find that it is too difficult to buy a house. Can you imaging that you have to pay 10 million RMB or about 2 million US dollar to buy an apartment about 100 square meters? For me, I have to say I can see little hope. But it is because of the competition. I believe there are so many talented people who can chase their dream, however, for most of us, we see desperation.

  • Jul 6 2013: I think I can see the hope of our nation.I am a college student studying law.
    1.About a house,I never think I could buy a house immediately in the large city,but it would be easy if I truly work hard .And it is really easier when I choose a small city to live.At least I think it is not so late that I get my own house when I am 30.I choose my own style of life,no blaming for the political system.
    May be it is a shameful thing, but I believe if you are powerful enough you can do anything you want with any political system and the limitation is decided by your own moral system.And thanks to god,China has less belief.May be it is why nowadays Chinese become more selfish.We are never be satisfied in mental and can not find the peace, so we work hard to find the shortly mental peace.Then we work harder to continuing just like a drug things. At last it only left the desperation.Because I think we can not be truly satisfied in today's main value judge system in China such as a better material life.But These really help us to have a better material life.So the desperation is not a problem only changing a political system could solve.
    2.May be the government forbid something to talk about which indeed sacred me about I cannot protect my own rights one day.but I see the hope our government is changing when I am doing some legal assistance.Nowadays more and more people choose to protect their rights by law even against government,and it really works as what I see.So these helping others' staff also give me some feelings of safety making I believe the future would be better.
    All above is just my feeling.I am not standing for anyone,but at least I can share my idea with others.
