Thread: Should people be allowed to have large families?

  1. Default Should people be allowed to have large families?

    With a planetary population of more than 7 billion, and an estimated population of 9-10 billion by 2050, should people be allowed to have several children? For the purpose of this discussion let's call several more than two children, and stick to the westernized world.

    Why not end capitalism's natural rate of unemployment and simple poverty, and then discuss, Infringing on Individual Liberty.

    Even China has empty cities, just laying around now.

    Cities? Or villages? The US has plenty of empty towns too but they are mostly rural, as people have congregated in big cities. So you think people should have as many children as they want then?

    I think it should be limited to 2 kids and for those that can't afford them, none.

    The rate of child birth has been reduced tremendously. To the point that world economy slows down to the crawl.
    There is no need to do anything right now.

    In many countries obsessed with an irrational fear of what they see is socialised medicine, the poor cannot afford contraception. Totally shortsighted considering the costs to the state from raising children in deprived circumstances, often when they're not wanted. Given the costs involved in running jails in such countries you'd think they'd realise their policy has come back to bite them on the bum. But no, ideology blinds as usual.

    I'm not sure more translates to better. Does just replacing ourselves and nothing more mean an economic collapse?

    Sure. We need more genetic variation to drive evolution of our species. So far, it kind of sucks under the current gene pool. I want me some scissorhands, damn it.

    Why can we afford a War on Drugs and that form of Prohibition (without a psychological evaluation)?

    I believe this would promote the general welfare more:



    Why not use socialism to bailout capitalism, like usual.

    I agree to "blame the Right" for also complaining about a the cost of an ounce of prevention, not just a pound of cure.
