Chinese Family Planning to Include Fining Unmarried Mothers

Posted by PITHOCRATES - June 8th, 2013

Week in Review

Liberal democrats always want to regulate business more.  And they want to tax business more.  Because they don’t like capitalism.  Which they see as unfair, immoral and unfeeling.  As well as chaotic.  Worse of all it’s a system based on the basest human desire.  Greed.  No.  They don’t like that.  Instead they would prefer a neater and tidier system that limits a business’ greed and its pursuit of profits.  Something like they have in China.  Where an all-loving, all-powerful government puts people before profits.  And gives the people the best of all possible worlds.  Just like the liberal Democrats so earnestly want to do in the United States.  But there are problems with an all-powerful government.  For one it is all-powerful (see Chinese city plans to fine unmarried mothers by Louise Watt, Associated Press, posted 6/3/2013 on Yahoo! News.

A Chinese city’s plan to fine mothers who have a child out of wedlock has sparked criticism that the policy is discriminatory and could lead to an increase in abandoned babies.

One expert said Monday that it was the first time that out-of-wedlock children had been expressly singled out for penalty by one of China’s municipalities, which have flexibility in how they enforce China’s population-control policies…

Babies resulting from an unmarried relationship or an affair with someone who is already married will provoke a “social compensation fee,” an official at the family planning committee of Wuhan city in central Hubei province said Monday. He refused to give his name, as is common with Chinese officials.

Social compensation fees are levied on people who break China’s strict family planning policy, which restricts many urban couples to one child. The fee depends on the province and the whim of the local family planning bureau, and the children are denied education and health benefits.

Hubei province, in which Wuhan is located, sets its social compensation fee as three times the average annual disposable income.

This is something the left has all but accused the Republicans of wanting to do.  Force women to stop enjoying sex.  And force them against their will into loveless marriages.  They and their friends in the media discussed the Republican ‘war on women’ more than they discussed Benghazi during the 2012 election.  And Benghazi was real.  While the ‘war on women’ was not.

But it is real in China.  And china is a leftist communist nation.  During the Sixties the hippies and radicals wanted to replace capitalism with communism.  For the left has always been sympathetic to communism.  They rejected materialism and lived in communes.  Where no one owned anything.  And the people owned everything.  That was their utopian dream.  Communism.  Like they had in China under Mao.  Like they have now in China though it’s a bit watered down these days with some state-capitalism thrown in.  But the state is still all-powerful.  Just as it was under Chairman Mao.

If the casual left (the young and those too preoccupied with social media and entertainment to pay attention to current events) doesn’t think this can happen here they should ask themselves this.  Why is the left so adamant on providing free birth control and access to abortion in this country?  Is it so women can enjoy more consequence-free sex?  Or is it just state family planning?  Like in China?
