we can see chinese's conscience is less and less from the law.
i'm a little disappointed to my mother state.
Why are you disappointed ?
I think you should be happy and welcome such law. If I were you, I would look forward to the law being implemented as quickly as possible.
What we are definitely seeing are the changes in China and her leaders. Instead of the old ways of sweeping problems under the carpet, they are bringing them out in the open, review, scrutinise and deal in a realistic manner. They are now removing the "face" veil that western countries are often fond of criticising and picking on China.
This is a realistic move by the Chinese leaders and is important for China's development and making sure she and her people are moving on the right track while pursuing their ambitions.
To me, the law has many advantages. It preserves the Chinese old tradition of filial piety. It makes it imperative that employers must now allow their employees home leave to see their parents on a regular basis, and thus thwarting any attempts by employers to exploit their workers without breaking the law.
The law serves to enforce the voices and aspirations of all the Chinese parents to want to see their children more often. Without the law, the parents may waver for their children's sake so as not to put them in a spot. With this law, whether it works or not, parents and the children know they have the backing of the state for a reunion, not just once in a year but more often now.
Whilst chasing our material dreams (like career, our dream house and lifestyle) is important, if we forgot who we are and who our kins are, we will only end up as a zombie, a workaholic and being exploited, and may in turn exploit. An enforced leave such as this will rein in all these and make people stop and think.
I am sure many people would have wished their countries had implemented such laws to bring family members together.
