Quote of the Day

"Research by China's National Population and Family Planning Commission, published in the People's Daily, concluded that a quarter of slogans posted in furtherance of its policies had been crude and harsh in the past. It described some as spine-chilling.

Among the examples it cited were, 'Kill all your family if you don't follow the rule' and, 'If you escape (sterilisation), we'll hunt you down; if you want to hang yourself, we'll give you the rope'.

State media blamed local officials for coming up with phrases such as, "If you don't get sterilised, your house will be demolished".

The research said milder expressions should be used to 'avoid offending the public and stoking social tensions'."
