Population control

Population control
Another thread was getting hijacked - so I will pick it up here.

Why is anyone against population control?

My guess - it's a knee jerk reaction - bred in by years of religious twaddle.

Logical people - like some scientists - https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/...mate-alarm -  are calling for shrinking the population to mitigate human impact on the environment

Because it won't freaking work or it won't work in time to matter or will require draconian policies no sane government would pass

Actually -

Implementing a mandatory restriction would be horrible way to go. (Like China tried)

.
We need to change the mindset. We need to get people to WANT to not procreate. We need to quit rewarding breeders with tax advantages. We need to change our beliefs. 

I have no kids. My SO had no kids. By elective surgery - neither of us can. Our choice. 

We did our share.

Others need to follow.
