How big can your business be? Ever since my childhood, my teachers have kept telling that I was the heir of Communism. But I never bothered to tell anyone! I deeply understood one needed to be low-key, and observe disciplines.
Now I am nearly 60 years old. Although the central committee of the Party has never sent anybody to discuss with me how I should take over our Communism yet, I am still managing to hide at the bottom level of the society quietly. I always recite silently in my heart our vow: “Always be prepared!…”
Half an hour ago, I received a call from a stranger. He asked if I needed a loan. I said yes. He happily asked: “How much?” I said: “5 billion!” He asked: “Do you have any collateral?” I replied, “Yes, I have a building. “ He asked, “Where is the building?” I replied, “It is the Tiananmen Tower.” He asked, “Who are you?” And I replied, “The heir of Communism!”
