What a fascinating movie! I’ll have to buy it and let others see it when it comes out on DVD. It shows the brutality and immorality of the Chinese communists. It also shows how stupid social engineering is.

Is it though? Education, economic opportunity, and access to birth control are far better policies, as economic development leads to lower birthrates, and vice-versa. It happens everywhere but is particularly pronounced in regions with Buddhist traditions which don’t push childbearing as a priority.

Developed East Asian countries like Taiwan, Korea and Japan, and the city-states Singapore and HK, all rank as among the lowest fertility rates on the planet (1.1, 1.2, barely half of replacement. Canada is at 1.6 and the US 1.8), and its below replacement (~2.1)even in industrialized countries that aren’t quite fully first-world yet, like Thailand, Vietnam. Even post-one child policy China hasn’t seen a rise in birthrates and will likely see its population peak within a decade or two.

This is a sad state of affairs but the alternative is small children, some still learning to walk, begging for scraps of food on the street. The streets of Hong Kong and Kowloon were full of child beggars back in the 60’s. In Kowloon, I personally have been accosted by little girls, perhaps five or six years old, trying to sell their body’s for a dollar or two. A sad state of over population.

A very heart rending article.
The psychic damage alone to individuals of these dictatorial, authoritarian monsters is mind boggling!
Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s favorite dictatorship…
