Something that has been on my mind for quite a while now…
There are so many poor babies in this world that live/are born at a disadvantage….. they are disadvantaged from birth, purely because of who their
parents are and the decisions that they made prior to bringing them into this world… now, I know this is going to be controversial.. but I’m going
to say it anyway…
Why not instigate a method of means testing people before they have children…
I am a great believer that should you wish to propagate the species you should not only be of sound mind and body, you should also be aware of the
responsibilities of raising a child, not to mention be financially secure and able to give that child the tools it needs in order to flourish.
To grow our slightly broken society beneficially we need people of good moral standing, and these people tend to come from families with the same
values… and these values tend to be born from working for a living, having self-respect and maintaining a decent level of intelligence.
The breakdown of our society is apparent, the masses live off the lies of the media, more influenced by fashion and popular culture than ever
before… they lack a moral compass.. and I am a firm believer that it is the lack of parental moral guidance that causes this situation.. I see it
every day.. parents that can’t control their children, or simply don’t want to control their children as they would much rather have a
“friend” relationship with them… it’s called modern parenting… but unlike many other areas of life and personal development there are black
and white issues here, solid guidelines based on common sense…. things that a parent simply HAS to do when raising a child in order to impress
responsibility, social awareness and sound moral values on a child…
So, how could this be achieved??….. could we possibly consider sterilising the masses at birth, allowing them the privilege of having children when
they can prove they have attained the values/education/financial stability necessary for raising a healthy well balanced child? At this point the
sterilisation could somehow be reversed….. (Hey, I’m no doctor, not sure about the science of it all!).
Could people be fitted with some kind of device under the skin at birth that stops them from having children until they have completed “the
What form would this test take? Who would be responsible for judging people? So many questions…
I know people claim that it is a fundamental right to be allowed to have children.. and this thread will probably turn into a debate on that….. but
I just don’t think we can afford, as a society, to allow some people to make this decision themselves… I’m sorry, but some people are just not
responsible enough to make such big decisions themselves… and yet presently, they are allowed to bring as many children into their own personally
created mess as they wish… and indeed often do, due to a lack of understanding of the world around them and contraception issues…
It is these people, these people that don’t have the COMMON SENSE, let alone the required financial stability with which to support and raise a
child successfully, that need to be stopped.
Personally, I have had enough of supporting these people with my taxes so they can make poor decisions based on warped values and desires…. While
the rest of us suffer and wonder if we can ever afford to have a child ourselves….
