    I encourage you to spend within your means this Christmas. Live without regrets. Don’t live on credit. If you don’t have the cash, you can’t afford it.

    This is probably the topic that causes me the most grief, but it is comparable to only one small tear in a rushing river of blood.

    China’s one child policy

    Explosive new evidence of torture, murder, and pillage to be revealed today at House hearing on China’s brutal one-child policy

    “Detained illegally pregnant mothers about to be forcibly aborted using ethacridine lactate – comparable to a saline abortion”

    China’s one-child toll reaches 400 million

    “Over the years, I have been asked many times to estimate how many lives have been lost in China as a result of the one-child policy. Given that the policy has been in place for 30 years, I respond, and given that each year the government aborts between 10 to 15 million women, the total number of unborn children whose lives have been sacrificed is somewhere between 300 and 450 million…”

    “Think about China’s astonishing economic performance — its annual GDP growth over the past three decades is close to 10% — once the Communist Party stopped trying to control all economic activity. Think of the tremendous work ethic of the Chinese people and their dedication to educating their children. Think of the labor shortages that are now cropping up across the country because of the one-child policy, where many factories cannot recruit enough workers.”

    “Think on these things, and then ask yourself: Is China really better off because its leadership has eliminated 400 million one of the most intelligent, hard working, and entrepreneurially minded peoples the world has ever seen?”

    “Has the Chinese Communist Party lost its collective mind? It has eliminated 400 million customers.”

    Learning From History

    | July 8, 2011

    “Each time in history that a society has tried to materialize a utopic vision of a perfect world, it has produced the most brutal and criminal regimes.” Mario Vargas Llosa

    “In the long run, the aggregate of decisions of individual businessmen, exercising individual judgment in a free economy, even if often mistaken, is less likely to do harm than the centralised decisions of a government; and certainly the harm is likely to be counteracted faster.” John James Cowperthwaite

    No Turning Back?

    | April 26, 2011

    My son wrote the following comments in an essay he finished today: “People understand the game, they know that they can vote government entitlements and funding to themselves, and politicians know that the leaders who can satisfy those demands will be liked. If you abandon reason and say, well, there is no definable limit to the role of government and what it can tax from people then anything is possible. That is why you have large sector of the population that lives off the state, a larger sector that pays no income tax, and a huge government bureaucracy that employs millions in comfortable but often useless jobs. There is a vast dependency and sense of entitlement that is easy to inflate, but almost impossible to reduce.” My son, N17

    The following quote is attributed to Alexander Tytler: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they… can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”

    More Entitlement Programs?

    | April 15, 2011

    I stopped by the optometrist’s yesterday to get my new frames. The staff was getting all the customers to sign a letter to the government to make sure every child gets an eye appointment before he/she starts school. They didn’t stress that it was a marketing campaign for them so that the tax payer would pay for all these free appointments. We should be helping the poor, but the majority of parents should be responsible for their own children. The entitlement programs in Canada and spending money we don’t have are going to be its demise.

    Baby’s growing up… and taking a shine to politics: The MEP who brings her daughter to Parliament

    “‘It was not a political gesture. It was first of all a maternal gesture – that I wanted to stay with my daughter as much as possible, and to remind people that there are women who do not have this opportunity [to bring their children to work], that we should do something to talk about this.’”
