Introduction
Our society was founded in early 2018 to provide assistance to those individuals wishing to return to the Mainland of China. Our material is largely aimed at second-generation American citizens of Chinese descent. Our membership is largely composed of Sino American professionals — engineers, lawyers, hedge-fund managers, university-instructors, and such — who came to feel, to some extent, dissatisfied with their American upbringing and career (or else, Australian, Canadian…) and who decided that the best course of action was to reverse their parents' decision to immigrate, especially after having witnessed, over the years, increasing evidence of hazardous and prejudicial social conditions. We also wish to extend our sympathies to those who, as children, suffered abuse at the hands of their immigrant parents, an occurence which, it gives us pause to say, has been a fairly widespread during these recent decades. Contrary to the misconceptions spread by the American media, and by the American educational establishment, the abuse-epidemic suffered by young Sino Americans is largely an immigrant phenomenon irreflective of the way which families operate back in China. It may be slightly late for us, on account of our variant childhoods, to be viewed as full members of Mainland society, but we are pleased to enjoy a respite from further racial complications and to provide a mainstream upbringing for our children. All this being said, the members of Sino American Reunion are pleased to strive for increased global understanding, diminished racial prejudice, and emphasis upon the ethical qualities of humankind, as opposed to spurning people based on their race or background. We are motivated in our quest to fix things by the ardent difficulties of those who came before us. Lastly, we do invite you to join our movement as well.

His JD thesis, published in 2005, correctly predicted the rise of China on the world stage and the consequent changes in worldview among overseas Chinese students and expatriates.

In the past, he has served as primary lecturer of Distributed Autonomous Coalition of Asia (DACA) and as advisor-in-residence at the iCenter of Tsinghua University. He was the translator of the initial whitepaper of Elastos. Mr Yuan is the originator of Concise Yuan (XCY), a simplified version of Bitcoin (BTC) which students learned to implement as part of DACA's acclaimed 6–8 week training program. Mr Yuan formerly attended UIUC, but left upon facing adverse behavior in his third year by deans and campus-police. He is interested in further aiding the PRC's technological community.

Unbidden, the goats will bring home their udders swollen with milk, and the cattle will not fear huge lions. The serpent, too, will perish, and perish will the plant that hides its poison; Assyrian spice will spring up on every soil. (Vergil, Ecloga IV)
