‘We’ve woken up’: young Chinese ‘lie flat’ as protest against life’s grind

Chinese youth, less interested in grinding their lives to dust to make more money for someone else, and to conspicuously consume, are simply opting out. I believe Japan has a similar generation of “Stay at home and do nothing” youth.

… and based on employment weirdness in the US right now, there’s a lot of people of all ages doing roughly this.

Think that that’s going to imped them enough to matter geopolitically?
