Right now, overpopulation is the main barrier to this utopian ideology they are striving for. They need to cull the herd by any means necessary.
So Flight 370 disappeared because China is "culling the herd"

i think much is getting "OLD" and with the economy the way it is- only the top 1 % getting all --I think they are cutting some very serious corners and putting all at risk- but would not surprise me either if they did want to get rid of some of us less affluent types--- BUT_ I am sorry for the families and pray for healing of their hearts- it is a horrific incident for all concerned

You're clearly not seeing the bigger picture here. China's government (puppeteer of the U.S. govt) has a master plan for dominating the globe. These plane crashes are only the tip of the iceberg.
Your tinfoil hat needs to be relined.

This is astonishingly idiotic.

China's problem is not merely overpopulation but a population that, due to the one-child policy, is rapidly becoming disproportionately old - meaning the relatively smaller younger population is being burdened by a relatively larger non-working population it must support.

Now, fliers are disproportionately working-age - business accounts for the majority of fliers, and the elderly simply do not fly as much as younger people with disposable income. The idea of 'culling the herd' by eliminating mostly productive members of that herd is, to put it more politely than it warrants, dumb.

Then there's the fact that China's natural rate of increase resulted in enough births to replace the 31 PRC nationals killed in the flight in about 2 minutes (yes, I looked up China's annual population increase and did the math).

Stop embarrassing yourself.

It's debatable whether Taiwan ever made it out of 3rd world status. Could be a good thread topic.

If that's the case, then we should be seeing these plane crashes almost every week then. Not buying your logic.

That's what happens when you have dirt cheap airfares combined with lack of regulations.

These low cost carriers in Asia are known for dirt cheap fares and cutting corners on safety.
The AirAsia airline that had the crash last year in December was banned from flying in the EU and that was before
it even crashed.
