WU YUN SHAN: I often dream that I buy a lottery ticket and win a big prize. But in real life, I never win anything. I have my doubts about the lottery industry in China, you always hear that there is something going on there, that they are hiding something. But it’s not really clear.
My life isn’t really going very well. I live of social welfare, that’s much less than a pension. I’m not very old, but I’m not young, either. I can’t get a job, I don’t know what will happen in the future. I’m single, it’s not easy for me to find a wife. If I married someone who had a pension, I would lose my social welfare. If I don’t marry, I’m lonely and my life is harder. I feel the social system isn’t just. Why do I lose my social welfare if I marry someone with a higher income? Every person has dignity. If I marry and I lose my social welfare, then my wife must take care of me and feed me. Isn’t that so?
