This son of the Maoist China, converted to protestantism by reading the Bible, explain what he saw on his way: “Everything disapears in China, like human beings condemned to disapear. The traditional values are obsolete. The only value that matters today, is the dollar. The joys produced by money are ephemeral. That’s why people are feeling miserable”.
