Q: China and the South China Sea, could they be good for it?

this is a disturbing thought from CNN.

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/05/11/asia/freedom-project-thailand-fishing-...

 could policing this kind of thing be better for the seas or would the Chinese just rape the seas worse than anybody?My thought is that they COULD police it, BUT, would they?

international waters are the ultimate tragedy of the commons. even conscientious people will eventually default on their values and grab what they can. i'm all for tighter rules, better enforcement and nationalizing the oceans.

No!

 

Firstly Chinese fishermen have absolutely no respect for fishing quotas or protected species. They'd empty the seas far quicker than Thai boats do is given half a chance (they already fish illegally both inside and outside Chinese waters and have been caught in the past with endangered & so called protected species). 

 

You'd also then back up China's very spurious claims to all of the South China Seas. 

 

PS.....Thai sea limits aren't really part of the disputed 9-dash line area of the south China seas.

You want a country that kills tigers just for the penis, bears for their claws, little minks for their fur... to control fishing that so many more people will eat???

 

Yeah, sure... that makes sense!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
