I'll admit it's heartbreaking. Mostly we only hear about Japan's and whitedom's demographic crash, but China of course had a one- and two-child policies for 36 years. The 1st 7 1/2 min of the 25 here are heart-tugging scenes of an old mother crying for her children amid scenes of squalor. (Later on her granddaughter comes to her aid.) By 2050, the narratrix sez, PRC will have 5 million ppl over age 60. In one county 30% of the elderly commit suicide.

A fun exercise device is shown for lazy ppl like me -- you hold on to a bar and each foot moves a mini-swing hanging from it ;) do they exist in the US?

China is getting rid of the one child policy. Ultimately, they will let the old and useless die, because the Chinese do whatever it takes.

Hope they're not too late, and hope this does bring down the Chicoms. Mebbe in concert with the big dam bust. Of course they're far more plugged into reality than "our" politicians at federal state, county and local levels.


USA! USA! USA! Bringing you democracy, or else! there were strains of VD that were incurable, and they were first found in the Philippines and then transmitted to the Korean working girls via US military. The 'incurables' we were told were first taken back to a military hospital in the Philippines to quietly die. – 4um
