    The 'one child' rule of China - good idea?

    Is it a good idea and should it be implemented globally?

    Or should we stand up for our human rights and have as many as we like?

    Bear in mind the world population is fast approaching the 10 billion mark and that water will soon be a commodity, oil has almost run out and there's a global food crisis because our effect on the globe and the fact that we are 100,000 more common than we should be - is akin to that of a plague of locusts on a field of crops.

    It is for the above reasons that I don't want children and the worry that would go with it (and the responsibility) - unless I got somebody pregnant by accident who I thought would make a good mother, that would be the only exception and I'd just do my best and hope for the best... But the state the world is in at the moment, and as bleak as the future looks - why does anybody have kids? ...Just my personal opinion, and I can see many positive reasons for having kids but all of them are selfish and for my own benefit.

    There's only one way to solve a population problem, and it'll be the same in the future as it has been in the past - and that is war.

    I suppose the future has looked bleak before, for example during the Cuban missile crisis, and people still had kids or else I wouldn't be typing this, some other cnut would.

    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    I never really understand the complaints of the state of the world now. It's never been in a much better state has it?

    I say have kids, add to the billions and may the best man survive.

    China has begun to relax this policy lately, especially in rural communities, where the firstborn is a useless GIRL.
    They are actually finding they are going to need more youngsters in the future, probably because they ate so many children during the famine, after the bark ran out from the trees they were munching.

    I think that there should be a test and psychological evaluation for prospective parents.

    Allow poor people to have one kid, middle class to have 2, upper class 3

    No license no kid, babies should be taken away at birth and given to people who cannot have kids but have passed the parenting license test.

    You are quite correct, I worked in China for a number of years from the late '90's, and when you get to know someone you can trust, and they trust you...well you get to find out some of the things that really went on there, and some of it begs belief!

    I think there should be a 'zero child' rule in China and a 'one child' rule for everyone else.

    Now there's a solution, however I don't think the amount of children allowed should be down to class, it should be down to parental ability.

    A rich child, spoiled from the outset is more than likely going to grow up to be a complete cnut, and spoiling a child is laziness and vanity on the part of the parent and is not in the childs best interests. Wanting and having to earn something and not always being able to get what you want, builds character and appreciation of values.

    Parents to be should be vetted according to how good they are as people... It's putting money first that has got us all into the mess we're into and wealth (in my experience from a few rich Thai girls) can create insecurity, indifference to suffering and a squalid sexual appetite: For example, my humble bargirl friend from 2004 wishes to be a good wife and mother and dreams of a better life whereas my recent jet setting businesswoman gik was selfish in bed, enjoyed being tied up and took it up the arse before fucking off home in her Lexus at 4am when she'd had her fill.

    I thought this was going to be a discussion on China's one child policy, yet it turns out to be another vehicle for Scampy to talk about having sex with a girl that has money.

    Was she born wealthy or did she work hard for that cash that has spoiled her so much?

    She was from a family wealthy enough to give her the best education. It was not a vehicle for me to talk about having sex with somebody rich, you make it sound like an event - I was merely using it an an example to show that when it boils down to it we are all animals and that those who get to live the lifestyle that society moulds our minds into believing we should live are not exempt from the core fact that we are all the same animal, and more so that the high-so lifestyle represses what we are and masks it with glamour and facade in the same way that religion represses sexual desire and ends up in many cases making the 'believer' more rampant and sordid.

    Stick to the topic bkkmadness and try to curb your obsession with me for long enough to post a valid reply like you did in post number two - which was presumably before you lit the first doobie of the day.

    Ok, let's stick to topic, can you describe the benefits and disadvantages of the one child policy in China and give us your thoughts on what global effects it may have, should the policy be implemented worldwide.

    Something a little beyond the extremely basic 'there's too many people in the world so less children being born must be better' if you can.

    Well this is the topic you have brought to the table this fine morning. Why wouldn't you want to discuss your own topic?

    Exactly, and thrown like a casino dice it was - discuss away.

    That a fair point worth thinking of... I am open to discussion which is why I posted this in public - so it could be discussed.

    I just started it, shared my thoughts - the onus isn't on me to conclude it.

    Do you have any worthy opinions on your topic at all? Anything to bring to the table aside from an intelligent sounding title?

    Yes, do some research first Scampy otherwise we will just think you an imbecile.
    Try to remember Churchills adage: "better to keep your mouth shut and let everyone think you are a fool rather than open it and remove all doubt..."

    Here's some food for thought: Japan heading for extinction, low birthrate

    Do some research on what?

    I posed a question, I didn't write a polemic!

    You and Maddie are the only ones in here at the moment and as usual your focus is on me, so if I go away (I hadn't planned on staying glued to this screen all day) maybe you can sort it out yourselves instead of using it to discuss me.

    P.S. bkmadness, do you really think the title of this thread is that inteligent sounding or is it merely a simple question???

    So you posed a question and we are discussing it. Isn't this what you wanted?

    Maybe it worked for China in these past years but it could not work globally so shouldn't be implemented.

    Yes.

    There's only one way to solve a population problem, and it'll be the same in the future as it has been in the past - and that is war.
    What population problems have been solved by war in the past?

    Surely starvation, disease, environmental factors etc. are liable to effect our population in the future too?

    I think it's a simple question but I imagine you thought it sounded intelligent.

    'Why I don't want kids...' would probably have sufficed.
