Humanity is almost 7 billion people. Now that the mortality rates have decreased, there is a never ending population bloom. Makes me think about Darwin; if natural selection kept the survival of the fittest, what is happening now?
From what ive heard, most governments promote the abstinence doctrine towards “reproductive health”. Why so?:
a) To win some good-buddy points with ultra-conservative groups.
b) Because they know its not a true stance that holds up outside of paper:
Its not a true stance, because, the age for sexual relations nowadays is surely 14-15 years of age, and some propaganda here and there is not gonna stop them from getting it on.
So the government accomplishes its real goal, young people having sex. And if the government is talking about abstinence, they are not talking about sex with preservatives, and if they don’t have sex with preservatives, they get pregnant - And if they get pregnant, then you have 2 persons that probably will not make it thru college and that will have to join the work force – and if they join the work force, chances are, their child will join the uneducated work force someday too.
Nowadays, big business and government are synonyms. And about big business and uneducated work force: nowadays there is a disintegration of worker unions and a loss of their power, which used to be significant. Why is that? Maybe because there is so much “uneducated work force”, that the supply and demand tables have turned. Now the patron has all the cards. The world is turning into one gigantic China.
Why is there cheap labor in China? Because there is so much people. If a group of people demand to be paid $10 wages, and the employer refuses to pay that amount, then they would normally be in a Mexican stand-off or would have to start negotiating. But if theres another group of people that would do the job for $9 wages, then theres no need to negotiate. And with this type of system, why stop at $9 wages?
And there aren’t any nice things to say about the greedy top 20%... Im not sure what would be a good estimate for a good living… we perhaps live in different economic universes… id say id be content with an annual income of $27,000… and why would any person (that doesn’t have offsprings) want any more than that? With it I can pay rent, pay for my cars crap, pay taxes, food, clothes, technology, bills, etc etc etc…
Id like to tell you who would want to: people that buy into all the materialistic crap we are fed daily and people with a bottomless pit of emptiness.
Dysgenic masses to my left, greedy sickos to my right; in front of me a wasteland.
