The Good Life: Living a Life For Others – Chi-Dooh "Skip" Li KindlingsFest 2013
Skip is an extraordinary man. Kidnapped at age two, a refugee from the Chinese Communist revolution, a man who had seen the world by the time he was sixteen, Chi-Dooh Li had earned his comfortable life in America. But a throwaway comment by a man he had never met shook him awake to a shocking realization and soon this Spanish-speaking Chinese lawyer from Seattle said "yes" to a crazy idea and write the book Buy This Land.
Beginning with Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's commentary on Western culture and delving into the Wachowski's "The Matrix" and Christopher Nolan's "Inception," Skip exposes the guilt, pain, loneliness and isolation we have come to accept as part of The Good Life when it is not for others. He offers that the big idea of Jesus is to "Wake Up! Face Reality," sharing his own wake up moment and the founding of Agros Interntational, a non-profit "committed to breaking the cycle of poverty for rural families in Central America and Mexico by enabling landless communities to achieve land ownership and economic stability."
