China, in a tacit admission that its one-child policy is misguided and ultimately destructive to civilization, has altered that policy to allow urban couples to have two children.
But only if one of the parents is an only child.
Way to relax the rules, guys.
China is one of liberals’ favorite countries in terms of its “family planning” policies — forced contraception, forced abortion, forced sterilization, forced adoption, etc.
Its one-child rule has been the grail for liberal eugenicists who fantasize about reducing the human population to their magic number of 500,000 people. The theory was always that a one-child rule would reduce the population of a country by half within a few generations.
Mathematically that doesn’t work, and things get really sticky when human nature asserts itself. Not only do you get people who defy the policy, you also get an aging population with fewer young people to care for the elderly, which means more resources diverted from the labor force.
It also means families choosing to kill their girls because patriarchal China values boys more, which leads to fewer women available to marry, which leads to social problems like rape, rampant homosexuality and the loss of traditional values.
So now the Chinese leadership has realized that their one-child policy has created a lot of problems.
And it only took probably a couple hundred million dead baby girls for the message to get through.
Now the new, improved policy is going to let city dwellers have two kids, so long as Mom or Dad is an only child (highly likely at this point).
I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict the likely result of this policy change will be twice as many unmarried, frustrated young males.
China may just have hastened the day the Communists are finally overthrown, and that day already can’t come too soon.
More importantly, China’s problems show the ultimate folly of globalists’ schemes to reduce the human population.
“Be fruitful and multiply” was the first commandment given by God to Adam and Eve after they were exiled from the Garden of Eden. Having children is one of the most meaningful activities human beings can undertake. It’s only the most debased, evil of governments that tries to take that human right away.
