While China's one-child policy has drawn criticism, especially outside the country, its general acceptance by the Chinese population can come as a surprise.

On an unrelated note, today ESWN republished a very interesting article titled "The twisted tale of a flawed dissident" from South China Morning Post. It gives you a glance into the personalities of some of the overseas "pro-democracy" activists. From a journalistic point of view, I found the report's writing quite balanced.
