Sadly, the advertising agency apologised to China

As at 2016, the
Department of Pacific and Asian Studies at the
University of Victoria, Canada,

From here as at March 2016.
Here’s why China’s one-child policy was a good thing, Sarah Conly, Boston Globe, 31 Oct 2015.
A revolting article by
praising China's decades of cruelty.
She says Western governments should punish people who have more than one child:
"we have no right to have more than one child
it can be permissible for governments to regulate the number of children we have".
One of the most awful things I have ever read.
Fascist and evil, and I don't say that lightly.
The United Nations
does not recognise Taiwan (a free country),
and only recognises communist China
(a brutally unfree country)
and even gives it its highest status,
with a security council veto.
It is perverted to regard the UN as possessing moral authority.
Brendan O'Neill, 10 Mar 2011, on lefties' worship of the unelected religious odd bod, the Dalai Lama:
"The elevation of the Dalai Lama into the physical embodiment of the Tibetan people's political aspirations
... has contributed to the stunting of political culture in Tibetan society.
the rest of the world implicitly treats them as a wide-eyed, infantile people who require a wise old man to speak on their behalf".

one of the least economically free countries in the world

"The state still directs most economic activity, and the Communist Party, while allowing some response to market forces, still maintains ultimate authority over economic decisions."
China Launches First Willing Manned Mission Into Space
brilliantly takes on China's oppressive government.
"They didn't need to use attack dogs to get him into the spacecraft. We have come very far."
"The space program was initially designed to rid the nation of dissidents,
but the program was re-imagined as a scientific endeavour
when it was discovered that beating people to death
was far more cost-effective."
"The Chinese regime .. shows many signs of instability. The inherent contradiction between its dictatorial rule and its desire for economic growth so preoccupies the Beijing government that it feels compelled to crack down even on non-political semi-religious sects like the Falun Gong. The United States and the West can either make it easier or more difficult for the People's Republic of China to resolve these contradictions. Our policy in this instance
ought to be the latter,
so that we can hasten the day when the conflicting currents of Chinese society prove beyond the capacity of its dictatorial government to manage."
