QuoteIntroduce a "negative child benefit" tax for those who do not have offspring. This may seem unfair on those who can't or won't have children, but it recognises that we all rely on there being a next generation and that everyone should contribute to the cost of creating that generation. Use the funds to fix the UK's broken, expensive early-years care system.
QuoteSecond, we should adopt a "grow our own" policy, aiming to provide most of the population growth from births within our racially and ethnically diverse country rather than immigration. Nearly 30 per cent of births in the UK are now to mothers born overseas — like mine, born in Germany. There will always be a place for some immigration, but we should not be as reliant on it as we have been over the past 20 or 30 years. Plus, many of the countries we might get immigrants from are suffering from the same shortage of working-age people.
QuoteEducate people that getting pregnant becomes more difficult with age — as Dorothy Byrne, the master of the all-female Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, suggested last year, to much outrage. Some see subsidised IVF provision as a technological solution — as China is attempting — but, as with natural conception, its success becomes significantly less likely as the age of a woman advances.
QuoteBut his fellow activists shouldn't then complain if there are no binmen or women clearing their rubbish, no drivers delivering food to the supermarket and no doctors to look after sick relations. With labour shortages already a problem in this country, the population winter has only just begun.

Quote from: bgmnts on July 03, 2022, 12:40:00 PMThe world population has more than doubled since the 1970s. We fucked our home beyond repair and Fuck off you disingenuous cunt. If labour shortages are such an issue, get rid of massive executive salaries, get rid of automation and actually pay employees a living wage. FUCK. OFF.

Quotea telegram from the Queen whenever a family has a third child.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on July 03, 2022, 12:49:59 PMWhy engineer a situation where are sucked back in to doing trivial work when machines can liberate them from that? Since it's the output of the labour that's generates the obscene profit why not take that and redistribute it rather than this "people need to do jobs so we should invent them" attitude, I dunno about you but knowing I'm inefficiently doing work for the sake of it due to ideological social-engineering wouldn't exactly please or motivate me.What I'm saying here is there are probably better ways to occupy people than setting fire to tractors and giving everyone a scythe.
Quote from: Johnny Yesno on July 03, 2022, 12:59:30 PMI think they might appreciate the restoration of child benefit for the third child more.
Quote from: Pink Gregory on July 03, 2022, 01:01:41 PMthat would require the Queen being alive though wouldn't it
Quote from: Johnny Yesno on July 03, 2022, 01:03:18 PMI don't think the qweeeen issues chiled benefit.
Quote from: bgmnts on July 03, 2022, 01:01:53 PMWell office work is trivial shit too, I'm be all for automation provided the people are taken care of and reap the benefits, not just the 0.1%. But you can't tell me there is a labour shortage when you go into a supermarket and see 15 self service checkouts and three staff members working on 12 empty tills etc. It's all fucking bollocks.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on July 03, 2022, 01:08:40 PMWell yeah I agree self-service is shit, but then so's working a till (in my experience).
QuoteIn developed countries, fertility rates are highest where women are best able to combine childcare with careers and where dads do their share around the house. Men do three times as much housework in Denmark as in Korea, for example, and the fertility rate is nearly twice as high. Generous childcare provision in Norway, which allows women to have one of the highest rates of workforce participation in Europe, has been shown to support fertility.
Quote from: Lemming on July 03, 2022, 02:56:26 PMBut over the last handful of decades, people across the globe (I think births are falling in literally every country in the world) have all suddenly and collectively, almost unconsciously, abandoned all of this for the first time in human history. I don't know what the causes are - lifestyle changes brought about by technology? The fruits of feminism (in other words, it turns out a lot of women, as soon as they're given the choice, don't actually want to be forced into marrying some awful man at a young age and having multiple kids - who'd have thought it??)? Microplastics getting into our brain through the bloodstream, disrupting our hormones, and making some of us see kids as weird dripping bags of mucus rather than gifts from god? The fall of religion?
