Please don't ever take that from what I said, because it is not what I said and I have very firm values against forced eugenics and such. I do not support one child policies.
I don't get into the Mother Earth is going to eat her children type of new religion. I don't think humans are a cancer on the Earth. I think the whole over population thing is a hyped-up myth.Sometimes I think Mother Earth is standing poised to shake us all off like a bunch of parasites and start over.
External force is never the answer. People have to come to answers as individuals. I merely say it ought to be encouaged for people to self-evaluate more often if they are up to the job of being parents because the job is so hard and long and unrelentling. I have seen people who could barely hold the basic minimum of their own lives together add children to that mix with devestating results. This is a minority of people though. To come up with extreme solutions would be far worse than what happens now.Might be the best solution at this point of exponentially growing population and dysfunction. Argh.
