Its funny how the premise of this topic keeps coming up, but no one replying ever connects how its related to similar earlier discussion here on
Basically we have TOO many people being born and not enough desire on the behalf of the "owners of capital" to employ them all for the sake of
having a stable and safe civilization to live in day to day. The owners of capital want more people born, not simply for "growing the future tax
base", but for the true purpose of DECREASING overall wages for everyone. More people MEANS less jobs and pay per person, affecting even the
educated and highly skilled. Its actually quite simple for the peons/peasants of the world to start having more say in how the world is run. Simply
don't have children or support those having children. The result will be wages soaring and diverse employment options expanding for all. Taxing
those without kids is a subconscious way to influence the birth of more kids, by punishing those whom are abstaining from having kids in their own
best FINANCIAL interests, while also not giving in to the desires for increased population coveted by both government and large corporations.
I have been making the argument, for a very long time, that the ever increasing "non-1%'er" population is lowering the overall influence of those
whom are not in the 1%.
How is this possible, you ask?
Because its easier to "pay less" or "nothing at all" to contracted or indentured "labor" when there is another willing laborer/slave waiting in
the wings to do the work for less or nothing at all. Its actually quite simple, if those not in the 1% refused to get married or have babies from here
on out & block any future immigration, the 1% would very quickly need to raise wages. Otherwise nothing the 1% want to get "worked on" would ever
get done. When low-wage/low-skilled labor becomes scarce in the larger market, wages go up.
This kind of "baby making with benefits" thinking on a grand scale is the problem. There are not enough paying jobs to go around as it is and the
"baby makers" somehow think bringing another human onto the earth is a good idea. Their future, unborn, child is going to do nothing except drive
down wages for everyone else who was already here. These people, quite simply put, need to rethink their purpose in life. Its not to make babies in a
world without a job for them to earn a living from. People who think like this are doing nothing more than driving the rest of us deeper into slavery
at the hands of the "owners of capital", whom use "extra living bodies" as an excuse to constantly drive down wages and increase the costs of
goods due to increased demand or lack of demand. People need to change their world view, RIGHT NOW, its not about making babies anymore! Save a job
for a person already born and living, by getting a vasectomy and vilifying those who choose to make more human beings through biological reproduction!
Guess when the largest “recorded” wage increase happened in history for, non-land owing, wage-laborers, post the introduction of fiat currency?
I’ll tell you, it was after the black death pandemic in the 14th century, especially in post-pandemic England.
How is that possible?
Because “the owners of capital”, post-black-death-pandemic still needed wage-laborers, but there was a HUGE shortage of able bodied people, so, in
order for ANY work to get done they had to pay the peasants and other undesirables more, SIGNIFICANTLY MORE. This principle is still at work today,
when you take the time to recognize that portions of the population are actively discouraged from participating in the full-time labor market. This is
easily done, by throwing people in prison, forcing them to attend formal school longer and allowing more people to claim themselves as disabled or
collect long/short term welfare. The next obvious step for government to further reduce the number of people participating in the full-time labor
market is to allow them easier access to welfare or as some have been recommending lately, a guaranteed minimum wage or allowance that everyone gets,
without having to provide labor to an employer first. I’m not going to go into any specific economic theory, but this above noted cohort of
non-participants collecting a base amount of guaranteed welfare/allowance will likely keep wages stable for those whom are still working full-time. If
all people capable of working full-time, entered the job market simultaneously, wages would crash and to a certain extent have, as of 2014.
Contrary to popular, academic and authoritative opinions, history has already proved my above inference to be VERY effective against the 1% quest to
drive down wages. Hence, if those NOT in the 1% refused to get married or have babies from here on out & aggressively blocked any future immigration,
both legal and illegal, the 1% would very quickly need to raise wages for non-land owing/peasants/undesirables/wage-laborers, etc. Otherwise nothing
the 1% want to get "worked on" would ever get done. When low-wage/low-skilled labor becomes scarce in the larger market, wages go up, FOR EVERYBODY.
For us the peasants, "self induced labor shortages" is one of the few ways to get the "owners of capital" to pay more for services rendered.
This includes the concept of the UNION, but Americans have already voted against their interests in that respect. All they have left now to negotiate
with is making less babies and stopping both legal & illegal immigration.
Its not simply about "wealth redistribution" and taxing those without children, its about overabundance of labor on the market and the ability of
the 1% to artificially drive down wages of the 99%. When the Black Death came about and wiped out "excess labor", the 1%'ers of the day somehow
found "extra money" to pay said labor, for services rendered. Which means it was always available and wages could have been higher previously, but
instead the 1%, of the day, chose to play the game, "pit the desperate against each other".
The French Revolution and the Peasant's Revolt also function within my "scarce-labor of ALL types" theory, resulting in higher wages being paid to
non-land owing/peasants/undesirables/wage-laborers. During the French Revolution, from 1789 to 1799, birth rates fell dramatically and the earlier he
Peasants Revolt, of 1381, not surprisingly, had roots in the aftermath of the Black Death. In fact, the Peasants Revolt was triggered by the "Statute
of Labourers 1351". The sustained wage growth for non-land owing, wage-laborers was rising so quickly that the English parliament, a few decades
post the Black-Death, under King Edward III, introduced the "Statute of Labourers 1351", which was used by the "Owners of Capital", as an
artificial means to drive down the wages of non-land owning peasants. Despite market conditions signalling the need for increased wages.
The Statute of Laborers; 1351 ("Statutes of the Realm," vol. i. p. 307.)
Its simple, newborn babies, legal immigrants and illegal immigrants destroy the wage negotiating power of the 99% and the 1% know this.
