An interview of an elderly man went viral on the internet recently. The video shows the man openly expressing his angry thoughts on the new filial piety law. He scoffs at the state’s concern over his well-being, and explodes when asked about what he thinks should instead be considered criminal: being “leftover”. http://www.theworldofchinese.com/2013/07/i-believe-in-love-but-my-girlfriends-mom-doesnt/
