Never asked...
Probably not as as much, considering where they live.


You know I have nothing against the Chinese People, it's the Communist Government and their treatment of the Chinese People that irks the living daylights out of me. You should ask, if for nothing else than your own education. Then compare it to where others live. I'd like to know what the average is in China...it's ridiculous to have to pay at all...my brother gets taxes knocked off for having a kid, he'd get even more if he had more.

Ah, I see I see. A perfectly reasonable thing to be against. I also disapprove of it, but they do have issues concerning popultion and everything else.

I know for a fact that having a child in the city is expensive, even to Americans (currency exchanges), but I don't know the actual price.
My friend lives pretty far away from the city, but not in the country.

I've heard about the population problem, as most of China is mountainous, desert, and lots of rain forest-like terrain, they've had some problems. So it's the way they've done things to curb the growth, what with such a tight space to live in along the coast and close to it. It'd probably take some time and effort to get even a roundabout number, but still having to pay the government, and then having to earn enough to feed your family, clothe them, house them, is rather stupid. I mean, their inflation is out of control as it is over here in the States and they still keep these practices.

To be honest, if the idea of Democracy had started in China, I wouldn't care, as an American if I saw that the Chinese had all this freedom of speech, press, and the right to bear arms, I'd want the same thing here, if fortunes were reversed. At the very least, I'd move there to experience it if a Democracy wouldn't take off here.

I really forsee a change coming in China. The word is getting out and the younger generation is starting to see that what's going on in China isn't good. Yeah they have this booming economy set to overtake the US by 2016 they say, but at what cost? It's not worth it if silent slavery of the masses is the price. The Chinese People are grumbling and the constant oversight and purges are taking their toll. Princess Leia said it to Grand Moff Tarkin the best: "The more you tighten your grasp, the more worlds will slip through your fingers." The Chinese Government is going to have to change before things come to head, and although I'd rather not see blood be spilled, it may happen. If they don't, all Hell is going to break loose.

I'm far more slow to criticize China's Communist Party than, say, North Korea's. They have implemented market reforms to be sure, but Marx himself wasn't as anti-market as many of his adherents claim. He believed it to be more progressive than feudalism, and to be good for quickly industrializing and increasing production. Also that it would inevitably fail because of some structural problems (e.g., disconnect of capital from labor, tendency for profit to decrease over time, and other "contradictions"), and that eventually class conflict would lead to its downfall. He did not believe in a transition from feudalism to socialism any more than he thought there could be a direct transition from capitalism to communism; so, in that respect, you might say that he saw a place for capitalism in the development of human civilization. Bourgeoisie national revolutions in particular have been supported by Marxists as a step toward socialism, for instance.

In real terms, China has raised far more people out of poverty, and reduced hunger, by a far greater margin than more openly "capitalist" countries, such as India or most of Africa, and as such are due some credit. The moment to watch is when they achieve the pinnacle of Capitalism (See: Japan just before the start of the lost generation, or the USA before the stagflation of the 1970s), and whether or not they move toward neoliberal policies of austerity or toward Socialist policies of nationalization and scientific management of the economy. They already do the latter, to a large degree, through something resembling a more focused version of state capitalism.

I'm Chinese and to tell you the truth, I don't like the country. Don't tell my parents. :L
Once, I went to my friend's house to play around and when I came back I told my parent that they gave me a brochure but some Chinese performance. My dad was soo angry, ripped that brochure out of my hand and threw that in the garbage. I was only 10 at that time so I cried then my mom explained that the performance was from people that was against the chinese government and blah blah. And it's a pretty messed up country. Have you heard about the news about the 2 year old? yeah...messed up. D:<

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


This was implemented in the 1980's I believe. During the Ming dynasty they noticed a huge population increase. Besides the fact Confucianism supports child birth and such an importance on family, they integrated a lot of other cultures surrounding and in China which included tribes more in the hills. This only kept increasing until now, where China holds 1.3 billion people, or 1/5th of the worlds population.

Sad thing is, I believe only 1/3rd of China is cultivatable for food, unlike the U.S. where we have a lot less people and a lot more land able to be used for agriculture.

Kerala is the only communist state in India (We say state, but its almost like a mini country) and its the state with the highest literacy, the only state with the ratio of girls greater than that of boys, and a state where there's almost no corruption and bribing. So I think communism works. (up to a certain extent) Not that I like what the chinese government are doing! But they have made China the 2nd most powerful country in the world! So there must be something in communism!!!!


I think China is formed into one of the most stable and powerful countries, not because of communism, but because of what the country has gone through. The history of China precedes 3000 b.c. They have been constantly at war since the beginning of their history, and have gone through being united and broken apart again when their rulers lost their virtue.
I think though, Communism isn't all bad, but I think it's more of a control factor for the party than anything, and the country isn't really united. For an example, the united Han or Tang dynasties when they began. Mao Zedong also killed hundreds of thousands of people trying to implement his ideals through the Great Leap as well as the Cultural Revolution. He gained a lot of ideals from Stalin, who wasn't the most caring leader of his people, to say the least.

China is strong because of what it has been through and what it has gone through, but I think a lot of Chinese would agree with me when I say the country isn't truly united. Although, a lot of Chinese did praise Mao as well.

Actually Its Korea and its the Older Korean people that eat dog.And that was mainly during the korean war . the poor people who moved south away from the war and had very little food would do that.
I have been to china and not once did i see dog on any menus any where. Not even street food .And i saw some very weird street food in bejing.

The internet sucks here. That is all I have to say. Otherwise, it's a rather awesome place to live (Shanghai).

Also, why block YouTube, Facebook and dwlding sites? Just so that they can make there own fake versions?

Also, 5 bucks for a new movie blu-ray quality still in cinema? I'm down.
