    • 10:32 #Books/Deng Xiaoping Era/Chapter 3 Consolidating Order under Mao Zedong's Leadership 1974-1975 Deng Xiaoping faced the challenge of "uniting the victims and perpetrators of the Cultural Revolution," just like other leaders after civil wars in other countries.

    • 16:48 #Books/Hot Wind/Impressions Twenty-Five Chinese children, as long as they are born, regardless of whether they are good or not, as long as there are more, regardless of whether they are talented or not. Those who give birth to them do not fulfill their responsibility to educate them... When they are young, they are not treated as human beings, and when they grow up, they cannot become human beings.──Irresponsible for giving birth, also irresponsible for raising.

    • 17:09 #Books/Deng Xiaoping Era/Deng Xiaoping's Background and Experience Concentrated power should be exercised from top to bottom. It is absolutely necessary to obey orders from superiors. The amount of democracy allowed depends on changes in the surrounding environment.──Deng Xiaoping wrote this in his homework in Moscow in 1926.

    • 12:25 #Books/Learn English and Transform Your Life in 100 Days Recommended romantic movies for practice, because they are closer to everyday conversations, and more importantly, choose movies that you like.

    • 23:27 #Books/Russell on Happiness/Chapter 10 Is Happiness Still Possible? Russell mentioned that everyone has a source of happiness, which reminds me of a blog post I wrote a few years ago: "Growing up, not happy anymore? Some classmates pointed out that after becoming student leaders, it seems that everyone is no longer happy. My conclusion at the time was that the process of obtaining happiness is different, and the level is different. Now I think the first half of the sentence is correct, and the second half is wrong. Happiness depends on the individual, and cannot be simply distinguished by levels. What you think is ordinary may be a very happy thing in the eyes of others.
    • 22:02 #Books/Ding Village Dream I finished reading "Ding Village Dream" in about five hours. Yan Lianke wrote in the afterword that after finishing this book, he urgently needed someone to talk to, but there was no one to listen. So he ate a bowl of instant noodles, then went to sleep and woke up the next day. Maybe he was exhausted after being immersed in this absurd story for a long time, just like a long-distance race. He once said in the introduction to "Serve the People" that the troubles caused by that book made him shrink back, otherwise he could have written better. Now he only wrote seven-tenths. To be honest, as a reader who just finished reading "Serve the People," I believe what he said. Even for me, this book is only six-tenths, because in addition to being timid, there are too many forms and writing techniques, completely losing the conciseness of "Serve the People," otherwise it would be a good story that could be written better.

    • 18:15 #Books/Ding Village Dream Ding Village did not sell blood at first, but after seeing that the cadres and other villagers were urging to sell blood, and every household in other villages was selling blood, they embarked on a life of prosperity by selling blood... Isn't this an allusion to the crazy development of the economy regardless of the environment?

His position is basically to stand up for the ruling aristocracy, so in the Middle Ages, Plato's ideas were combined with Christian theology and easily exploited by politicians.

    • 22:05 #Books/Russell on Happiness/Chapter 1 Why People Are Unhappy Part of the reason is that I have come to understand what I truly desire and have obtained a lot of it; another part is that I have successfully abandoned some impossible desires, such as obtaining certain definite knowledge. But more importantly, I have fewer worries about myself.──Russell's love for life: Find things you like; discard unnecessary desires; reduce your worries.

I found that lung cancer is still the most common cancer, and this cancer can actually be effectively prevented through certain measures, such as prevention (quitting smoking) and screening (LDCT), but many people are unwilling to do so, or in reality, they are not doing well for various reasons.

The average quality of information is getting worse, but the highest quality information you can find online is getting better. It's like a market with a wide variety of goods, which is not good for ordinary consumers because they don't know how to choose from a wide range of goods; but it is very beneficial for high-level consumers because they can find the goods that best meet their needs.──The Paradox of Abundance
