Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life, sometimes for good while thinking it's for the better. By lying flat, you or other people participate in a kind of non-cooperation movement within your or their own life, rather than surrendering themselves to the modern world's oppressive work culture, where it's easy to see see little hope of social mobility within daily life, or any mobility in life at all. This is a common cause of suicide among adults, or among teens with too much responsibility with no freedom
1. I’m not going to try to get a better job so I can afford to start a family, I’m just lying flat
