I have 3 brother in laws, the youngest brother in law is 52 this year. I think he is very interesting. One of the interesting things about him is what I called the family communism. He is the most capable person among his siblings and earns good money through doing business. However he doesn’t keep money to himself. Rather he likes to share most things with his siblings including money. In other words he has strong bonds with his own siblings as well as with his wife’s siblings.
Yesterday we talked about the aged care centers in China on Wechat. We all agreed that the aged care workers can not be trusted. Then my brother in law said that he had a plan that all his and his wife’s siblings live together on his rural little farm in order to take care of each other. He said we could build up more rooms around his house and this way we could avoid being sent to the nursing homes.
I don’t seriously take his words but I felt warm by his plan.
