I thought that this was insanely intriguing, informative and entertaining. I mean she made the most interesting and correct points in how China has changed and showed that they aren't all tight and restricting as they were and I actually thought to myself while watching only the first 5 minutes, "Well if her generation fought for all of this then what is the current one doing?" and to that she answered, "Well they don't seem to be doing much." and that is so true. This I would definitely agree with. What are they doing? Who knows what.
Braden Oldham's comment, May 2, 2013 9:48 PM
China is becoming a less tight and more freedom country. Also it made me wonder how does our generation change our country.
