Let´s take a look at this:
I´ll wait for you to read and then throw up a bit so we can get started.
Let me pretend to adress the author of the article. What the hell, man. So, after all, we, non-parents, should be taxed. That´s just swell, just icing on the cake. And for what? To create exemptions to people that want to have children. What a marvellous idea, might I add. Why don´t you propose we create tax exemptions for people that spill oil all over the ocean. Maybe they need help, since they are now all out of oil?
First point here:
This is ludicrous. The world is not IN NEED of human beings. In fact, since you cite new technologies, those are being developed so that the system will in fact need less and less people.
You don´t have to think hard nor have any kind of philosophical inclination to notice that one thing the world needs less is human beings. Any way you cut it. Be it environmentally speaking, or to work as cogs in the machine... or just to get behind them in yet another crowded line in a subway trying to make your way home (to quote a famous song). any way, shape or form you may think of. Maybe, what you are trying to say is that you want some people, people of a certain variety and that possess certain qualities, needed and valued by the System. Now that´s another plan altogether, but that´s not how you are putting it in the article is it? And this is what I´m saying: bullshit. You don´t want more people either, you want people to be cogs in the System, and the rest may go to hell.
There´s no need to subsidize what people already do for free and with a passion. In case you haven´t noticed, the world has 7,277,086, 898 people, and rising (that´s 7 billion, 277 million, 86 thousand and 898 people by the time I wrote this post). Only today, it has been documented the birth of over 300.000 people. And counting.
So... what I´m pretty much saying is that, no. The world, be it America, Europe etc., doesn´t need to subsidize and promote birth through tax exemptions. There´s too many people already. And that´s not even considering I´m an antinatalist. That´s considering only what a rational person should say when seeing those numbers.
Getting really tired of this shit.
On the other hand, we have this breath of fresh air.
And one comment on the first article reads:
"Dumbest article I've ever read. Why should I who chose NOT to overpopulate this already overpopulated planet pay more so that people making poor decisions can pay less. If you can't afford to have kids, DON'T HAVE KIDS - simple as that! What a load of crap this article, makes me pissed off really... Man, I swear this world is turning more into Idiocracy by the minute :/"Couldn´t have said it better.
