Uh... yeah. I hadn't gotten that, but it makes sense. We briefly discussed this a few weeks back, talking about how to increase the birth rate, and I pointed out poor people have more kids than rich people. So money isn't the issue. So what IS the issue?

If the poor are made up, as they are likely to be, of people with lower intellectual capabilities, drive, motivation, whatever, and they're having a lot of kids... and the more economically successful, which aside from those who inherit wealth would logically be made up of the best, the brightest, are too busy to have kids, then what's that going to do to our future?

It was once simply assumed, culturally, that marriage and children was everyone's destiny. It was why you were here. Now personal enjoyment is why we're here, and kids get in the way of that. It's harder to get promoted if you have to go home to take care of the kids, and taking that extra week in the Bahamas becomes less affordable. Plus you might have to settle for a Toyota rather than that Volvo you want. So what would motivate people to have more kids, if it's not a money thing?


If I felt some sense of duty to the human race as a whole, then obviously it would greatly benefit the species for me to contribute my extraordinary genetic gifts to the gene pool.

But ... I mean, is that the point?  If it was necessary for me to have 4 or 6 or 8 kids to make sure that my tribe survived to the next generation, then yeah, I could understand feeling a little pressure to start having babies.  But there are 7+ billion people here right now, there might be twice that many before I die, and the species will probably carry on just fine without me.   The future might not have my beautiful blue eyes, flawless milk-like complexion, and flaxen hair to appreciate in an aesthetic sense, but I'm sure that they'll ... well, things will be ok without me in the gene pool.   The world doesn't need 14 billion humans, or even 7 billion for that matter.

The future will take care of itself one way or another.
