COVID, lockdowns, totalitarianism and runaway capitalism. Here’s a firsthand account of life in China form an American whose views on his own country were transformed.
In this interview, we talked with Kevin, a California native who, in his words, went from an almond milk latte drinking millennial liberal who viewed Donald Trump’s 2016 election as a catastrophe to America, to someone who voted for him in 2020. As for what caused that drastic change — he cites his four year experience living in China. So why did learning about China change his views on US politics? And as a Mandarin speaker and reader, what did he learn about how Chinese people look at America? We also talked about whether China is actually a socialist society by definition, the Chinese peoples’ obsession over money, and how to stay rational and less biased in this polarized world.
