This paper argues that China's One Child policy is not based on its traditional or cultural heritage and, therefore, this policy is purely political. Next, the author looks at whether this policy promotes the economic, social, medical or environmental well-being of the Chinese people as a whole society. After examining its history, benefits and damages caused by this political policy, the paper concludes that there is evidence that it does violate human rights at several levels and in its most egregious form of infanticide.

Economics of the One Child Policy in Modern China
The Rural Subsistence Dwellers
The Environmental Impact of the One Child Policy

From the Paper:

"In December of 1973, an incredible discovery of major historical significance was made, and one that would illuminate the ancient history of China. In Chu, a state that goes back to ancient Chinese history, archeologists found the tomb of an ancient Prince Li Cang, and enclosed within the tomb were ancient relics that would serve to enhance the history of China. Amongst those relics were ancient silk scrolls, which would soon be deemed one of the most relevant finds ever made on ancient Chinese history."
