Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems
You know, I have always appreciated TED for its openness and freedom of thoughts. However, when things like this come along, we tend to become "too serious and belligerent". There's nothing wrong with that, but it's just a matter that we have been infused since a child, so maybe neither side will be persuaded and, more importantly, few of us know exactly which one is better from our deepest souls. So, maybe it's better to, just as what Li said in his talk, acknowledge that both are reasonable and both work in certain aspects. Of course, both have flaws. What we need is not a choice between Western democracy and Chinese communism. What we need is to reconcile ourselves with the institution which we are not living in.

Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems
I've been re-reading 1984 these days and the talk by Li impressed me a lot. I mean what is the ideal society? Perhaps no one knows. I only know, from the ancient days to the modern society, humans have made tremendous progress and the progression is inevitable to continue. 1984 claims we will be destroyed by what we hate, but actually it isn't enough. Li provided the perspective that both are reasonable. But reasonable doesn't mean correct. Li is considered as successful in China so he may ignore some crucial facts prevailing in ordinary Chinese people.

As a 90's in China, what Li said part is right but part is wrong.
Already read the comments below, and as a 90's Chinese, I didn't see which side is wrong. I just think we have to admit and cherish the rapid development here and actually I have benefited from it. The need of house is indeed a real question posed in front of most Chinese who don't have a father called "Ligang". That's a Chinese feature and the cause is much too complicated. The point is that in this new era in China, as well as the entire world, young people have to seek a new road which is never taken by forebears. During this hard time, it's so common to feel hopeless, helpless, and confused. But that's what we have to endure.
