weeklystandard – Last week, the New York Times ran a piece on the dire demographic problems facing Germany. The short version: Germans aren’t having enough kids, and as a result the economy is in trouble and there are all sorts of logistical problems—vacant buildings that need to be razed; houses that will never be sold, sewer systems which may not function properly because they’re too empty.In 2005, Europe did a Population Policy Acceptance Study which looked at a broad range of demographic indicators. One of these indicators was “ideal fertility”—that is, how many kids an individual thought was the ideal number. Twenty-three percent of German men—that’s not a typo, 23 percent—said that “zero” was the ideal family size. There probably aren’t public policy solutions to a cultural worldview like that.
German men get the idea — family is for suckers. Think about it: spending countless hours and dollars protecting, supporting, and “loving” a bunch of tiny (loud, hungry, rude, crying) strangers because they fell out of some chick you banged? Doesn’t make sense. We men have been getting the shaft end of this “family” deal since Jesus dinosaur days. What’s in it for us, really?
Men of America…it’s time to wise up. It’s true we’ve all been brainwashed by this idea of what we’re supposed to do with our lives, but none of that is real. Like literally this whole “family” thing was made up by people no smarter or more important than ourselves. There’s no law or rule that forces us to waste our best years busting our asses for people that aren’t us, yet day after day men all over this country are voluntarily setting themselves up for household slavery. Doesn’t make any sense. It’s senseless.
The world is a horrible place filled with corruption, famine, criminals, war, disease, hate, racism, sexism, the Dallas Cowboys, poverty…everything evil you can imagine. And it’s about time we men took a stand and made a choice to stop bringing people to this shitty world just because some chick with a ring demands it. Eff that. It’s OUR sperm and our choice. Yachts are way more fun to save for than college tuition.
