The Chinese web portal Netease has posted a video clip of interviews with ordinary Chinese about their ideas for 'the best life." It's a sobering look beyond the headlines of China's power and economic clout, at the people of China, most of whom are working under difficult conditions to simply better their lives.
The conclusion at the end of the video:
House, kids, and even just a portion of safe food,
these make up the best life envisioned by the Chinese people.
Simple, trivial, and yet remote.
Hard work, day after day has made us the survivors of life.
Long wait, year after year…
What on earth is the best life?
