Was it a way to control the population?

Did you know? In the '50 there was a famine in China. Because of the way the communist leadership addressed it there were 45 MILLION Chinese that died. Between 3 and 4 MILLION were due to deliberate genocide. And some in the US would have us under such as system.

but it didn't work..and so they have outlawed having a second child?

  • Mandating Car Insurance to every driver has driven all the car insurance companies out of busi.....Oh wait, no it didn't...



    When did the government start offering CAR INSURANCE to "compete" with the CAR INSURANCE market to "make prices lower?" Oh wait, they didn't.

  • The world is severely overpopulated. It's only a matter of time before something happens to bring the population down. Whether it be disease or the government.

    No it isn't. You can take the entire world population and put it in Texas and density would be no more than NYC.

  • Hey stacymomof2, don't you know that wanting things like UHC means you're a communist? That makes total and complete sense as long as you don't use logic...

  • In China the one child policy was implicated 30 years ago for many reasons. Economy and some even say for human rights issues. However for the past 15 years Northern China has allowed couples to have 2 children.


    I know Shangai is severly over populated. The residential areas are too far to communite to the business areas.  If a family can afford it, the main worker of the family will stay in a hotel for the week close to his/her job because the commute is just that terrible.
