Today is Children’s Day. Hope every kid enjoys this happy day with his family or his peers. Hope every of us still remembers the happy days we had in our childhood.

        While we are celebrating Children’s Day today, do not forget that many kids are still living a hard life. There is a small and remote town called E Man(峨蔓) in Hainan Island. It is a poor area with an average income of 4400 yuan per capita a year. Among 29,000 residents there 15,000 of them often work outside the hometown, fishing in the sea or working in city, leaving their kids home. The local schools are taking care of them, with age from 3 to 13 from kindergarten to primary school. Parents have less time to gather with them, some of whom have only seen their kids about 10 times within 8 years. Obviously, it is a lack of education from family. Some of the kids start to smoke, get involved in bully, and even commit crimes. They start to complain, and lose heart to their future.

       What can we do for those poor kids?

On the one hand, let's bless. On the other hand, let's do something for them.

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
