Did you know that in China, the workers often kill themselves at work because working conditions are so bad? Did you know that Mao Tse Tung killed millions of people during the Cultural Revolution? Did you know you can't say what you want, watch what you want, or hear what you want because of the Communist Party? Did you know that the Communist Government will throw you in jail for up to life if you have more than one kid without paying their special "Child Tax?"? Did you know that 90% of all pregnancies in China, that result in a girl, are aborted? Did you know that the military can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, to whoever it wants (except high Communist Committee members of course)? Did you know that goes for the police too? Did you know that ALL media is state controlled and so are the lives of their people? Did you know that they watch you at all times while you surf the net? Did you know that they own a good chunk of America...I mean, we now OWE them 900 billion that Obama used to get voted in. Where do you think the money for the bailouts came from? Did you know that Communism is directly opposed to the ideals of Democracy? did you also know that they are making several hundred species of river and land animals extinct, and forcibly took (at gunpoint in most cases) away people's land in the Yangzte River Basin to build their 3 Gorges Dam (While inflation skyrockets)? Oh, and they're building it on a major fault line?! You aren't allowed to own a gun. So you can't defend yourself. But the criminals have them and regularly, gladly mind you, shoot it out with the cops and military? The Party Controls your life. They set your fate, like it or not, you have no control. you can[t become a member of The Party unless you come from money and have it to spare. If you like communism so much, got to China, I'm sure you'll love having the Party breathing down your neck at all times. You have to worship in "state-approved" churches. 200 Chinese Christians were recently arrested for wanting to worship outside in a park...WTF?! Big Brother truly is watching.


Yeah...that's where I want to be...in Communist China.

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:<

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.
