Comments from Sina:


I’m scared to imagine what my life will be like when I’m old. Because of the one child policy saying “marry late, give birth late” I didn’t have my only child until I was 28. When my child is 60 and still be busy with work I’ll probably be about 88. I’ll need someone to take care of me, but I won’t be able to make my child care for me, because he’ll still be working. I definitely won’t be able to have my grandson take care of me because he’ll be in his 30’s working his face off to get a house and a wife. I can’t stay in a nice nursing home or hospital because I don’t earn enough. I’m just a worker with a normal job, my salary is just about what it takes to put my child in kindergarten.


Everybody is cursing her children and our society which leaves no stone unturned! Who was the one who made her children? Who was the one removed the safeguard between her life and death! One one side hundreds of millions [of RMB worth of] public funds are missing, on the other side people don’t have enough money to go to the hospital. I don’t wan’t do die, but I can’t live. Medical insurance for the entire nation…


In the future there will tens of millions of old people, I bet this will be the outcome for them all!




Last year in February, my dad died. I secretly cried. I regret that when he was sick I was busy doing business. I have 4 sisters, but I’m willing to take care of my mother myself. I don’t want to have any regrets.


The country is prosperous and the people live in peace.[Proverb] The country is prosperous now, how can the people be at peace?

Find out who did this. Is it considered murder?

[This comment is a famous rhyming poem which has been altered]
The blue blue sky, the vast night, his mother is met with troubles!
Wrapped in thin clothes, thrown in a valley, She can only wait to meet Yama! [the king of hell]
I remember when, my mother fed me, nowadays the world is this desolate!

If this was in America, there would be murder charges.

How about the care for the elderly the government told us about? Or society? Or their children? The Red Cross?
