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.

The depth it dug into is beyond the scope of normal Chinese interpersonal networks. Chinese themselves don’t understand these things and they do it unconsciously. And it is how they are raised mostly in this country. ...READ MORE

Is China Really Meritocracy?

Meritocracy originates from China, and was regarded as the top standard of political system of Ancient China.

However, today’s West look at CCP China as a political meritocracy system, opposed to their democracy system.

But my question is, is China really a political meritocracy?

If we can not figure out the reality of our political system, how do we even confirm that we are actually a meritocracy? A system that values talents and abilities instead of wellborn backgrounds and connections? ...READ MORE

On Behalf of the Inevitable Proceeding of Lying Myself into a College

Guess it really leaves me no choice to do so.

I have been against doing this the whole time but the robotic and stupid system forced me to do so.

I have been contacting Langara College for weeks for my high school graduation and transcript, which I don’t really have, to spare me the process of these documents.

I presented them my work, my resume, called them several times, emailed all the contacts I have from that school, did all I can… ...READ MORE

The Chinese Dream

The notion of American Dream is that as long as you work hard, and work diligently, you will get something eventually. The typical American Dream rewards those people who are hardworking, and with integrity.

But what is Chinese Dream?

Chairman Xi proposed this idea in 2012 when he first came into power, but the idea of a Chinese Dream is vague and vastly representative of the communist values.

Whilst the economic status of Chinese is getting better and better every day, this brings outside influences penetrating the country. The new Chinese are experiencing many “new” ideas right now, however, the physical inadequacy of culture makes this country still very vulnerable like ever before. ...READ MORE

Genji and Hanzo Shimada Origin Part 1

The Dragon brothers lived long together under the protection and concealment of the Shimada Clan in Japan.

Hanzo Shimada had been raised as a skillful bowman with modern martial art, and was expected to surpass his younger brother Genji Shimada, in order to lead the Shimada Clan in the far future.

Genji Shimada had been raised as an agile swordsman, with the traditional training of a shinobi.

The Shimada Clan cherished sheer strength and disciplines. The big brother Hanzo was very well mannered and struck hard to become the leader that the Clan expected him to be. However, the youthful younger brother, Genji, was playful and disobedient. ...READ MORE

College and Ben Shapiro

The Ben Shapiro Show talked about a topic only until recently, March 13, 2019, The College Scam.

I’ve been tinkering about the idea of going into a college.

Frankly, I hate schools generally. Every since the excruciating experience (high pressure, long hours) of Chinese public school system, I am completely paralyzed by the idea that I need to go back to school again to receive my degree.

Ben talked about two simple things in this episode. And two essential parts of the existence of college, especially prestigious universities. And that can’t be truer in China as well. ...READ MORE

Wage Gap

“What do you think is the concern of Feminism right now?”

“Equal pay.”

I had this conversation with a girl from London when I was in Vancouver. She self-proclaimed that she was a feminist, and the pressing issue of feminism, is the gender wage gap.

The wage gap is around 4-8%. From a sociological and economic standpoint, the wage gap exists because people tend to take on different jobs. ...READ MORE
