wonder if anyone knows the answer to this question cos i've been trying to research it but i haven't been able find any concise answers
Has the one child policy actually slowed down the population growth in China? Is it effective?
Some statistics for it would be great thanks you.

Wow there is so much flaming in here. Honestly you people have to learn to speak forcefully without cursing each other out.

Well the concept of eating a dog is understandable in my view. European culture has always placed the dog as "man's best friend." Thus it appears that we eat man's best friend. Personally I would never eat a dog but some people do. It's not like other people look down upon people who eat monkeys and rats in Africa. Don't be so closed minded that the Chinese are the only ones being discriminated. Be reasonable. This thread was for Communist China so obviously people are going to point out things like that.

The One Child policy really only applies in large urban areas so that's why you see rural folk have larger families. It gets serious in some areas but can be lenient on others.

@FatedEmperor
Also the comment on the "People's Republic of China." This title is used to attempt to convince people into believing that it is a nation run by the people. However it is run by one party that decides everything. Now does that sound like a republic to you? I don't think of. Come on Taiwan is named the Republic of China and it's more of a republic than China.

Also just had to point out that eating emu was a pretty interesting experience. <.<

I am against the China's government policies but hell the U.S isn't that much better, nice job getting into a worthless war.

My baby sister's from China. :)

One child policy states that families can only have 1 kid or else they get fined. These fines are pretty hard for a lot of the people to bear so they sometimes abandon the girl if they want a boy to support the family. >< It sucks.

And what really sucks is that they're not ALLOWED to abandon their kids. If they do, the police will be like "Here take your kid!" So they have to resort to leaving them on the side of the road, or on the steps of a police station. So the adopted Chinese kids can never find their birth parents.

China is not a communism is it? I thought it was like… I dunno, a jaded republic. *Shrug* I learn things here all the time.

But, yes, I knew about that one child law... Though didn't Japan have the same law at some point? I don't know, I'm kind of ignorant about Asia. As much as the various Asian cultures interest me, (I'm being serious, not sarcastic) I've been too caught up in my own nation and its constantly changing political conditions

Oh, and Dog meat is pretty tasty. I just read over some of these posts. Anyway, except Human flesh, meat is meat. Animals are made to eat, and no I didn't mean to rhyme. I'm immature, but not that bad!

Anywho, I think its South Korea, but there is some place where they eat pickled baby fetus. Well, why give China a bad rep for eating dogs when you could be judging starving Koreans for eating dead babies? (Now I am being sarcastic, :p.)

Taiwan isn't it's own country, its part of China and if your saying it's a republic than shouldn't China also be a republic?

Gosh, u people, the only bad things u can find bad about China is the eating dogs and the 1 baby policy, and who cares if the Chinese Gov't tortures and few religious freaks, what the difference between that and the vatican torturing the so called heretics and witches and the US govt torturing iraqi prisoners

That's up to personal debate, but anyway, I was just pointing out a very close similarity that I noticed. Taiwan maintains its own government separate from China. Although it is labeled as a renegade territory, it is still distinctly different. A republic is not ruled by a single party mind you. You should really look up the meaning of it.

A republic is a form of government maintained by a state or country whose sovereignty is based on popular consent and whose governance is based on popular representation and control.

Communist state is a term used by many political scientists to describe a form of government in which the state operates under a one-party system and declares allegiance to Marxism-Leninism or a derivative thereof.

Now I wonder, what does China fall under?

China doesn't persecute only a few religious freaks. They do it on a massive scale. They oppress the Tibetan people, censor papers, etc.

I'm not saying China is the only bad country, but in this thread, it's the topic.

Or it could also be the fact, that any competing faction is highly restricted in advertising. All media is censored to only include the communist party's approved information. Although there are other political parties, they are extremely small or are active only on the local scale. That's why other parties in Tibet and Taiwan are labeled as renegade to prevent them from voicing opinion in Chinese politics.

Even religious establishments are forced to first register with the government before undergoing any processes. There is a big difference between a few and a massive scale. I have no idea what you're talking about there. Both are serious, but China warrants a higher need for humanitarian action.

Actually no, I have to say WWII Russia was a better example, but that was always a transition so I guess my point shouldn't count...

That was incredibly sad, I teared up a bit watching that. . . the UN should do something about China instead of chastising America for our war on terror.

Discuss anything related to this wonderful and ancient nation. I'll start it off. did you know that china has this one law that prohibits women from having more than one child


that was awhile back b/c I remember reading that when the law was made, there were too many guys. In the past Chinese parents thought of boys as more value, my family still do =[. So there were boys then girls, and we know that won't work.
