David Lin is a Chinese American businessman in Corvallis, OR. In 2012, he commissioned a mural on the side of his business that highlighted Chinese abuses in Tibet. That act prompted threats on his life by Chinese agents, coercion by Chinese authorities and diplomatic discussions between the US and China that reached Oregon's Congressonal delegation. Don Merrill talked with David Lin about the mural and his American sensibilities on how to prepare and protect the US against what he sees as the triple threats of global warming, family breakdown and an increasingly aggressive China.
