I tried to give a shit about this, but failed miserably.

It’s almost like there’s such thing as too much money…

Compared to some of those stories, the two Apple Watches on the dog seems almost responsible.

Fortunately, China has a long history of peasant uprisings (ex: Yellow Turban, Li Zicheng, etc) - I can only hope I live long enough for them to Eat their Rich.

So the chinese goverment will step in to teach them to be better rich people? Isn’t that an moxymoron?

I wonder why the author brought up Guo Meimei. She is not fuerdai. She is not a nice person but a strong argument could be made that her story shows what happens to those who aspire to join the club rather than being born into it.

He also missed a rather important point. They may be second generation wealthy but for the most part they are 100th generation powerful.

Brought my camera for nothing…
