27. “Governments today do two things that I object to in particular. First they encourage introspection, telling us that unless men examine their
testicles, unless we keep a check on our cholesterol level, then we are not being responsible citizens. You are letting down yourself, your wife,
your kids, everybody. We are encouraged continually to worry about our health. As a consequence, public health initiatives have become, as
far as I can tell, a threat to public health. Secondly, governments promote the value of health seeking. We are meant always to be seeking
health for this or that condition. The primary effect of this, I believe, is to make us all feel more ill.”

28. “We’ve become accustomed to a new way of being “alone together.” Technology-enabled, we are able to be with one another, and also
elsewhere, connected to wherever we want to be. We want to customize our lives. We want to move in and out of where we are because the
thing we value most is control over where we focus our attention. We have gotten used to the idea of being in a tribe of one, loyal to our own

29. “I’m using the term ‘Chinese mother’ loosely. I know some Korean, Indian, Jamaican, Irish and Ghanaian parents who qualify too.
Conversely, I know some mothers of Chinese heritage, almost always born in the West, who are not Chinese mothers, by choice or otherwise.
I’m also using the term ‘Western parents’ loosely. Western parents come in all varieties. All the same, even when Western parents think
they’re being strict, they usually don’t come close to being Chinese mothers. For example, my Western friends who consider themselves strict
make their children practice their instruments 30 minutes every day. An hour at most. For a Chinese mother, the first hour is the easy part. It’s
hours two and three that get tough.”

30. “On the first day of school, I was escorted by hordes of national guardsmen. Like a funeral procession, the steady stream of official-looking
cars followed me to the campus. Some patrolmen were parked near campus gates, while others, with guns strapped to their sides, stood near
building entrances. Though many of my escorts had given me smiles of support, still I was not prepared for what I encountered upon entering
my new school.”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story
