“experts saying reform is ‘inevitable’ … A Chinese government thinktank is urging the country’s leaders to start phasing out its one-child policy immediately and allow two children for every family by 2015 … proposes all birth limits be dropped by 2020 … it has resulted in social conflict, high administrative costs and led indirectly to a long-term gender imbalance at birth”
Well, ‘planning population’ is the best thing that happened to China, ‘and’ made possible the economic miracle, now the opposite ‘will’ take back the ‘mother heroes’ quackeries and famine. It is not the Mao times any longer, back then made partial sense for accelerated industrialization, but now it would be suicidal.
What they really need is letting farmers and ranchers have two children, even three if one or both are females, letting the ones who lost a child to make a replacement one, make the rules the same for all regardless of species, but keep the strict one child policy for the cities, whoever does not like it, can become a farmer or a rancher again, there is a need in the food production industry.
IMVHO the gender issue won’t change anyway, the problem is cultural, and parity for females should be accepted, for instance with mandatory ‘gender quotas’ in all public offices and companies, and certainly providing free birth control methods and free sterilization, would definitively help.
In a liberalized society free (in so unlimited,) procreation ‘will inevitably lead’ to the ‘population bomb’ of religions, (especially western ones, which are mafia corporations in reality,) unfortunately hyper-reproduction is the favorite religions terrorism ‘political’ tool, they procreate four times more than everybody else to subvert any country into becoming a religious mafia, is a power skim, history teaches a lot about this situation, one of the few things Marx was right about, religion is worse than opium.
