China's one-child policy was introduced in 1979, but lifted in 2015. Interestingly, their birth rate didn't climb after the end of that policy; it has remained steady at roughly 1.7. Social workers who after 1979 were tasked with convincing women to have fewer babies, after 2015 were now tryig to convince women to have more. That is because the government soon realised what an imbalance their policy was causing in the Chinese population: Too many older people, not having fewer younger people to work to support them, more males being born than females, were just some of the issues which were created.
Στην αρχή υπήρχε μόνο χάος . Από το κενό εμφανίστηκε Έρεβος , το άγνωστο μέρος όπου κατοικεί ο θάνατος , και τη νύχτα . Όλα τα άλλα ήταν άδειο, σιωπηλή , ατελείωτες, σκοτάδι . Στη συνέχεια, κατά κάποιο τρόπο την αγάπη γεννήθηκε φέρνοντας μια έναρξη της τάξης . Από αγάπη ήρθε το φως και την ημέρα. Κάποτε υπήρχε Φως και την Ημέρα , Γαία , η γη εμφανίστηκε.
Creation of the World
In the beginning, there was only chaos. Then out of the void appeared Erebus, the unknowable place where death dwells, and Night. All else was empty, silent, endless, darkness. Then somehow Love was born, bringing a start of order. From Love came Light and Day. Once there was Light and Day, Gaea, the earth appeared.
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Love is the ink; wisdom is the message!
