The crazy thing is, the media and government actually spent a lot of time trying to get us to make more children.
I'm doing my part as no. 3 is coming this may, but to be honest, I don't think we should repeat the ERROR of the '69 generation. They are actually to
blame for the crisis we have now, and instead of waiting it out and trying to level out our birthrate instead of going to each extreme, they are
trying to recreate the baby boom of the 60s.
#ing idiotic if you ask me, because in 20-25 years we will have the same issues all over again.
Some of the problems:
- Lower state income in form of taxes
- Larger classes. When I was a kid, I started in a class with 18 people. Today the new generations risk starting in a class with 27 people
- Lower welfare for the elderly. My GF works in the field of caring for the elderly, and she said that she has no time to bond with any of them,
because she has like 15minutes per citizen.. in out in out.
And it will get worse. They are discussing making doctors visits a paid service instead of the free service it is now. This will hurt the low income
Also I think our brilliant college and university system is in danger of becoming more pay as you go instead of free.
This is what happens when you create baby booms. It's fun for the first 15 or so years, then the problems comes along.
In short: DON*T DO IT FOR US.... we don't need another large generation. We just need to wait it out.
