So the "One Child Policy" of not too long ago was TOO successful.

And now they want to undo it?

Yes. Japan is going the same way. Low birth rates cause a lot of problems once everyone begins to retire at the same time.

Too successful? It was successful enough. If the One Child Policy was kept for a few more generations it would achieve the goal of reducing the population.

Yes I'm aware of the economic problems caused by the population of retirees outnumbering the working population and these problems are significant but they should be able to put up with a few generations of temporary inconvenience if it ensures centuries of prosperity for the generations to come.

Because that policy is somehow inherently communist? :?

I used to subscribe to China Uncensored. But, I later found that Chris Chappell was spreading anti-American messages on his America Uncovered channel.





So, I started wondering how accurate his reporting on China was, and stopped subscribing to China Uncensored.

Here is a Reddit discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/China/comments ... nda_china/

And, a more recent discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/China/comments ... _reliable/

It is apparently related to New Tang Dynasty TV: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Tang_ ... Television

Quote:

New Tang Dynasty Television (NTD Television) is a multilingual American television broadcaster founded by adherents of the Falun Gong new religious movement and based in New York City. The station was founded in 2001 as a Chinese-language broadcaster, but has since expanded its language offerings; in July 2020, it launched its 24/7 English channel which now broadcasts nationwide in the U.S. and UK. It is under the Epoch Media Group, a consortium which also includes the newspaper The Epoch Times. The Epoch Media Group's news sites and YouTube channels have spread misinformation and conspiracy theories, such as QAnon and anti-vaccine misinformation, and false claims of fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election.



If they're going to spread false news about American politics, then how accurate can their reporting on China be?

It's hard to get accurate reporting on China, Chinese domestic sources lie, but so do the opposition sources and so do foreign sources.

No, it is because their much-touted "Five-Year Plans" never seem to consider the long-term consequences.

And the western world is doing any better, Fnord? Also, do not fall for all the anti-China BS being spout by the media in said western world. "Tis the Spring of the second cold war, after all. Lots of propaganda to rally the masses against "The Other"

Non sequitur. Your reply failed to address the question asked.

I failed to address the question the way YOU wanted it addressed.  Deal with it.

Here is another perspective on China



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sssqx_7 ... =OwlofAsia

Apparently, single educated young women are very important to China's economy. Also, it looks like abortions may be on the rise, as contraceptive education and services are removed.

In other words you're admitting that you're just spouting nonsense! :lol:

No. I am saying that your efforts to twist my words to support your claims will not work.
