Fault Lines On The Face Of China: 50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great’ - Excerpt 83"In any average human population, natural male births tend to outnumber female births by about 105 to 100, though numbers tend to differ slightly among various ethnic groups. In some areas of China, upwards of 138 boys are born for every 100 girls.The results of these skewed birth ratios will leave an astounding number of men unable to ever find a woman, make her his wife, have children, establish a home and leave his name behind. Projections on the size of this aberration of nature vary, from 30 million to 43 million in 2010. Other reports put it in a different way, saying that one out of every ten male children born today in China will never find a woman to marry.Studies have long shown that women have a pacifying effect on men. A man unable to marry will often become restless, violent, aggressive, and will have a destabilizing effect on society. This gender imbalance is what will create the 5th Army of Instability for China, an army manned by upwards of 40 million men unable to find a wife. The level of disharmony created by the lack of the ability to enhance their life through marriage and build a family will fester and cause disruption within society."
That’s a pretty shocking statistic – one in ten males born in China today will not be able to marry. There just aren’t enough women. Now I could make some glib statement as to how that is worrying news for the would-be philanderer, since women will be able to be more choosy about their mates. But of course that’s not true – success in the bedroom is more about social status than mere numbers. Yet that’s really nor here nor there; it’s the sheer appalling social engineering of it, the fact that so many millions of people have been denied a shot at happiness even before their birth, before their conception. They’ll be born into a society where the odds are irrevocably stacked against them. They’ll be born into a world where the most basic of human needs – love, connection – can never be satisfied.
Fault Lines On The Face Of China: 50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great’ - Excerpt 84“This demographic time-bomb is locked in for these men’s lifetime. Even if the government reversed the birth ratio today, these men would still be unable to become husbands and fathers. The vast majority of these men unable to find partners will come from the countryside, where the gender imbalance is highest, and where limited educational opportunities will doom them to unskilled labor that will make it even harder to find a wife.The creation of the 5th Army is based entirely on the concept of female infanticide. The ‘death’ of millions of female fetuses in the march of time is populating this army with men who quite likely will do incredible harm to the women who have ‘survived’ and been born. Demand for prostitution will increase, the selling of young female child brides, and violence against women, including rape, will create additional instability beyond natural order due entirely to government policies.Mao stated in one of his most famous quotations that ‘women hold up half the sky.’ Nowhere in his writings does he mention whether men are equal to their half of the task, no matter how many more of them there are than women. The soldiers of the 5th Army of Instability will certainly not be up to the task, but will seek masculine forms of rebellion as retribution for government meddling in the laws of nature.”
