As a 90's in China, what Li said part is right but part is wrong.
Are most of the comments coming from Chinese? I love my country. I will never change my nationality and will work hard with people around my age to build a better country. This is my dream, I am not sure whether I have the ability or whether I am capable to achieve it or not, but I am working. But there are so many people talking something useless. Such as "no need to buy a house". It's like a rich people looking down to a poor and laughing at him/her, "cannot afford a house? Then don't buy it!", this doesn't solve any problem! And I really don't know why some people think that there is no need to buy a house! Where are you come from? 2 month ago I watched the AmericandreamsinChina and it makes me think a lot. Maybe we care too much about what westerner think about as, but actually they are not that care about.

Come on, be rational. I don't believe there is any parents want to send their children back to the countryside after so many years fighting. They finally get out of the countryside, they will try their best to get all their family out. Though my family (from grandgrandparents) live in Beijing, and sometimes I really hate so many people out of Beijing come here and make the capital too crowded, I have to admit that there is no reason to ask those people who fight out to Beijing or those who live in Beijing for several centuries to sent their children to countryside. Man struggles upwards; water flows downwards. Your claim make me remember the educated youth who have settled in the rural areas in 1970's.

Have to say your opinion is too simple too naive. I appreciate those who become teacher in countryside. But think about the Maslow's hierarchy of needs to be satisfied. If the basic needs are not satisfied, how could people go to chase their self-actualizing such as not care about money and living standard but to chase the so called dream? Those teachers are like god, but remember we are human but not god.

I agree with the first two. The third one, I really don't know how to say about it. I never imaging a 20 year old boy can buy a house or even pay the advance for a department. I am talking about those 40's, 50's, they have no money to buy a decent house after 20 to 30 years hard work. And a graduate earn 10,000RMB a month after tax, (and the average salary in Beijing is 5000RMB), 5 month can earn one square meter second hand apartment, that is the reality.

I appreciate Li's talk and I really thank him to let more people not only westerns but also Chinese to know and think the world in a different way. And also I am not one only complain about the society, I also work hard. You say rent a house, OK, then do you know how much will it take in Beijing? I have to say it cannot be called affordable. And about "the simple economic rules" , yes there are a surplus in demand, however, some people have tens or hundreds of houses well other have nothing, how could you explain that? It is not a simple supply and demand, it contain a lot of other things. I want China to become better, not on the GDP but on GDP per capita and want the standard deviation could be smaller. I love my country, but we also have to understand the bad part of the society. Right now, I cannot say I understand the bad part of the society, because I agree that I am too negative. This is because everyday so many negative news jump into my eyes but the positive news are so far away. I agree that GDP means a lot, but it means more to the country than to each individual. I remember that in Li's talk, he sail most people in China think China will go better, I agree with that, but what about asking them will you go better or worse? I cannot remember it is Hong Kong or Taiwan or mainland China, a survey said that most people believe the society will go better but their own life will go worse.

It is difficult to say what is right what is wrong even you see it. Like in ancient, people think earth is not a ball because of what they had seen. So the so called real is never a real, it is only a real in one's eye. You look up and think the sky is blue, but maybe for a color blindness the sky is gray.

Confusus must always has an impact. And I don't know what is Confusus (is that Confucius?) in your mind. Because in my mind, there are not only Confucius, but also other belief or just claims such as Zhuangzi and Laozi. Those tell us to be kind to others, chase for peace, harmony, it tell us that a smooth and peace life means happiness. Just as Laozi said Government Noninterference in ancient. Maybe nowadays, westerner only know Confusus, but that is not what we Chinese see our culture. But those concept of kindness, honesty etc. are diminishing in some part in China nowadays, we become more eager to power and money without morality. I think that is because we learn too much from west but not all, and we throw away too much of our own things. Hope that we 90's can create a more peaceful country.

Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems
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.
