Leave it to a conservative newspaper to put a positive spin on something so utterly socialistic.

While I don't know that it needs to be a law, I think China is on to something. Many parents never see their children and many adults don't think it is their responsibility to provide the necessities for their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other older people in their lives. It is everyone's responsibility. These older folks shouldn't be left on their own or in nursing homes with no visitors and no one checking on the level of care they receive from an institution.

The law didn't strike me as socialistic. In fact, it seemed the inverse to the "It takes a Village" mentality. Apparently, China doesn't feel it can just print money to spend on Senior Care, and is looking for a rational solution to what is essentially a family problem.
