Cold_Sassy: Great, just what we need. More Chinese.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Oh great, so now you can have two Chinese kids. Still going to be hungry an hour later.
Sybarite: Before everyone goes all Henny Penny about global population, population growth rates have been steadily declining since their peak in the late 1960s. It took 40 years for the population to double from 3 billion in 1959 to 6 billion in 1999, and it is projected to grow 50% in the 43 years from 1999 to 2042. Current UN projections show population stabilizing and possibly even declining after the middle of the 21st century.[wwws2.eea.europa.eu image 768x681]
Louisiana_Sitar_Club: indarwinsshadow: [rlv.zcache.com image 324x324]That's just for you subby.It's not good in the slightest. The entire planet needs to be on birth control. We're going to wipe ourselves out with over population long before any other disaster. China is the worst offender on the whole stupid planet for pollution, over population, and aggressive expanisionist policies.Again, read the tag moron. It really applies to anyone who thinks "cool" is a term for human extinction.Can someone please let indarwinsshadow's waitress know that he's had enough coffee? Thanks.
kbronsito: What if China is not really closing those reeducation camps but its just sending its own prisoners home? Obama could then outsource the FEMA reeducation camps and ship the enemies of his socialist revolution to China.
EnglishMan: Cold_Sassy: wichitaleaf: TheShavingofOccam123: So do they need the dudes for invading India again? Vietnam again? Russia again?When a country filled with 1.4 billion people looks around and says "we need the dudes", you have to ask yourself why.Modern all-out, toe-to-toe warfare has enormous casualty rates. We're not talking Seal Team Six combat. We're talking nuclear warfare fought against billions of civilians.It is no secret that the military and other VIP's in scarily important places within the Chinese government want to and are planning an attack on the good ol' USA.I have heard this also, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least.Oh, yes, I'm sure the Chicoms are just waiting for the moment they can attack the USA which has the puny advantages of superior military forces and many allies. And thousands and thousands of nuclear bombs.
kdawg7736: Soon after they realize they can't handle feeding all of these extra people they will want to go back to their original policy. Doesn't India have an overbreeding/overpopulation problem? China will become like them soon.
miss diminutive: Excellent. The future will need more space miners.
jxb465: They are now allowing 1.2 children per family. They will allow you to choose which 20% of the 2nd child to keep.

Endive Wombat: Lucky LaRue: I think China didn't have a choice on the one-child policy. Too many boys and not enough girls to go around is a recipe for disaster.I was listening to NPR a while back...they were discussing the fact that there is going to be a major deficit in a couple of areas. One being breeding, the second being elder care...they mentioned something about the fact that there are more old people than young, and China is going to have a reallllyyy big problem with there not being enough able bodied people to take care of the elderly in the coming years. This problem has been directly attributed to the misguided theory of population control.
