In the final analysis, this is a challenge against the mainstream Western thought tradition of atomistic individualism as reflected in the capitalistic economic, political and cultural system. With philosophical and ethical individualism underlining Western social system and life, everything is fragmented: from academic thinking to systemic institutions to family life. 

Child life in the family is the earliest and most fundamental stage for every one’s moral education, where a sense of interdependence between all human beings, which is the emotive basis for feelings of empathy and benevolence, can be most directly witnessed, felt and cultivated. The disintegration of the family institution, which has originated in the capitalist Western world and is being globalized with the globalization of capital, is finally resulting in the threatening disintegration of the whole human civilization. Hence the significance of this ‘Four Generation’ Challenge From China.

 Social media is a more wholesome place this week after a video meme from China depicting four generations of family members under one roof has gone viral.

    What is it: The “four generations challenge” begins with a child walking into a room and calling back to their parent, who in turn walks into the same room and calls back to their parent and so forth until four generations of family members have entered the room.

    Where did it start: Appearing to originate on Douyin, China’s version of the popular video app TikTok, the “four generations” challenge caught the attention of the West last weekend when Buzzfeed reporter Kassy Cho posted a video of a family participating in the challenge on her Twitter account.

    Now: Since the challenge went viral, families from around the world, including the Philippines, India and United States have posted their own “four generations” challenge videos online.

    Check out a few of these videos below (warning: they may make you really miss your parents or grandparents).
