Population Control: The Anti-Birth Lobby

by | 20th, May 2008

PEOPLE hate other people’s children: 

As for “population policy”, the sanest response is not to have one. The only humane approach is to let each family, in every country, choose its own fertility rate according to their own desires and concerns for the future. Forget about “national birth rates”: every family is different. Even within nations there is – and should be – no such thing as a “norm”. Some people will want to have only one child – or none at all. Let them. Others, despite the easy availability of contraception, will want a home tumbling with children. Let them. The alternative is tyranny and torment.

Other people’s chidlren are horrid…
