Run for your lives, it’s the population cops!

You may have heard the amazing criticism of David and Victoria Beckham, who recently welcomed their fourth child into the world…

“We need to change the incentives to make the environmental case that one or two children are fine but three or four are just being selfish,” said Simon Ross, CEO of the Optimum Population Trust, reported The Observer. “The Beckhams, and others like London mayor Boris Johnson, are very bad role models with their large families.”

It put Kelly Maher in mind [see video above] of one of WhoSaidYouSaid’s favorite reports (more than 10,000 YouTube views and dozens of comments) of a scientist at a 2009 rally in Denver who claimed that reducing population is the “master variable.”

    It’s been my observation that those with small families own and drive the gas guzzlers all over the country. Those with large families tend to stay home. The selfish ones are the ones who limit their family size.

    I’m guessing anyone who advocates government control of how many children a family has either is: a Communist who enjoys watching the human right violations of millions of people (aka China where forced abortions are performed on poor women and infants are taken away from mothers against their will because they did not comply with the one-child policy) OR, they don’t like children to begin with (sadly, this is a truth of many in selfish-single-life America) OR they can not have children and so feel the need to punish people who can (runs along the same line of selfishness and those who don’t want to adopt).

    Check the assumptions behind Social Security (a USA program). To keep paying retirees, a certain number of active workers are needed. The “Baby Boomers) - born 1946 to 1964 - have had too few children to keep the system going at the current age of retirement. If the age for “Normal Retirement” is pushed from 66-67 back to about 72, and the working population keeps working past 70, that should restore actuarial balance. We need more people like the Beckhams to have children, to grow up and pay taxes to keep our system running.

    Check out demographicwinter.com and watch the trailers for a good snapshot of the overpopulation myth.

    Bah, Humbug! If they really want to decrease the surplus population, they should start with themselves and do us all a favor. Of course, these are the same liberals and progressives who make rules for the rest of us which they are not beholden to. How do you know when a liberal is lying to you? Well, you know the rest…
