    Have read where there have been reports of forced abortions on women having more than 1 child in some of the provinces.. China has been glorified quite a bit as a capitalist model, but there are still so many human rights violations there we ignore them for the bottom line.

    China has a huge poverty problem. They have lifted 400 million out of poverty, but 1 BILLION are still poor as hell.

    The communist government can't rule with an iron fist if it wants to stay in power; the capitalist market economy and the anger of the mob won't allow it.
