China’s little emperors

From Guardian Weekly, Catherine Bennett wrote: “Soon after China implemented its in 1979, reports reached the West of a new breed of plump, pampered creatures who had never learned to share. They were called Little Emperors, and nobody said “No” to them. It was as if Britain had decided to spawn millions of Prince Andrews. As these children have grown older, they have not, according to many bulletins, grown nicer. They are said to be in love with consumer durables and so obese, due to routine parental overfeeding, that they require regular sessions in fat farms. After the terracotta warriors, its army of spoilt tinies is now one of the most famous things about China. But like real emperors, these miniatures seem to avoid the vulgar gaze.”
