Financial Post advocates China’s one-child policy to be imposed on the world

Diane Francis makes an intriguing argument for the use of a one-child policy.  Forest’s are disappearing, the oceans are being polluted, the ozone is depleting, and the blame rests with the human race.  Let us not forget that the atmosphere gets polluted from volcanoes and other sources.

Francis makes the claim that if the one-child law is enforced on the world by 2050 the world’s population will drop from 6.5 billion to 5.5 billion.  By 2075 there would be 3.43 billion humans on the earth.  Forests, other species, the oceans and the atmosphere would greatly improve.  By doing nothing the world’s population would grow to more than nine billion by 2075.  Francis has written:

China has proven that birth restriction is smart policy. Its middle class grows, all its citizens have housing, health care, education and food, and the one out of five human beings who live there are not overpopulating the planet.
There is just one problem – what works for China may not work for everywhere else.  In the United States a problem has arisen of a low birth rate.  People are now intent on their careers, they have children later in life, and marriages don’t last that long.  The growing older age and shrinking younger age has created a problem for Social Security in future years.  China can provide all the needs listed above because China is a communist country.  So does Francis suggest that communism should be imposed on the rest of the world by a world government?
 
Not only am I opposed to such an action such as this because I believe in the right of someone to procreate as many times as they want to, but our Congress would have no say in this.  The White House would commit us to such an obligation before thinking twice.
