1 Child Law...Okay. I know some people will hate me for saying this, but I wish the 1 child law of China would be implemented world wide. We're just breeding at an unsustainable rate, it seems. I know that a lot of free-minded and intelligent individuals don't like the idea of limiting a person's right to bear children, and I know that many cultures would clash HARD with this kind of law, from India to the U.S. and everywhere in between. But with every family of 15 we inch closer and closer towards the destruction of our last stockpile of resources. We'll run out of energy, clean water, food, medicine, and maybe, in the distant future, the plants that give us oxygen, bringing a real man-made apocalypse on ourselves. At that point, it won't matter if our bloodline and legacy stretches to every corner of the planet, because none of our children will have a healthy planet to live on. The immediate gratification of having an adorable baby could one day turn on us. I feel like a horrible Nazi doomsayer when I spread this message, but I feel like we've really got to save ourselves and our loved ones now. I'm truly sorry if I offended anyone :( I'll get off my soapbox now.
