Here is what James Madison Had to Say About China ‘Back in the Day’

Read this, it seems as if China has always been a moral disaster…

“What becomes of the surplus of human life?
It is either, 1st destroyed by infanticide,
as among the Chinese and Lacedemonians; or
2nd it is stifled or starved,
as among other nations whose population is
commensurate to its food; or
3rd it is consumed by wars and endemic diseases; or
4th it overflows, by emigration, to places where
a surplus of food is attainable.”
-James Madison
