I just read a well-written article on a terrible subject. In the Mail Online, Peter Hitchens explores the gender inequality, especially seen in abortions in China. His report is sad and compelling. The world is about to change. How will a massive gender imbalance in China affect the rest of the world? It’s hurting China in a number of ways, but time will tell how far-reaching the problem will be.
From the article:
What lingers in the mind, in the midst of this surging economic and political titan with its dozens of vast, ultra-modern cities, its advanced plans to land men on the Moon, its utopian schemes to control population and its unstoppable power over the rest of the world, is the inconsolable misery of the bereft parents, the pinched squalor of the places where they must try to live a happy life, the jaunty wickedness of the cheap abortion clinics and the classrooms full of the ghosts of all those girls who were never born.
Whatever we have been used to and thought of as normal is coming to an end.
Reminds me of a verse from Revelatoin (Chapter 9 verse 16): And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.
Although, when you read this article, that doesn’t sound too likely.
