04:46 pm: Words Fail…

From All Girls Allowed:

 

China is ordering local officials to stop using threatening slogans to enforce its strict "one-child" policy, state media reported.

The government wants to ban slogans like: "Kill all your family members if you don't follow the rule" and "We would rather scrape your womb than allow you to have a second child," the Shanghai Daily said.

Several referred to forced sterilization, with one slogan reading: "If you don't have your tubes tied, your house will be demolished."

"Once you are captured, your tubes will be tied. Should you escape, we'll hunt you down. If you attempt suicide, we'll offer you either the rope or a bottle of poison," another read.

 

I would comment…but words fail.

... those slogans rhyme and are sung to irresistible pop music?

Dear God! I don't know if that is better or worse.
