I'm thinking more like, once your child's born, your extra benefits are gone forever, and you start getting penalized for each additional child after that.

That's obviously the correct policy. It's incredible we actually do the opposite.

So we need to penalize nature?

Ah well, I guess it's natural for us to penalize any sort of natural thing. It's kind of what we do. Life is absurd to say the least.

Also, "penalize" is a pretty fun word to use.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Because those of us who aren't breeders don't want to pay other people's kids who shouldn't even exist in the first place.

Wow. That's fucked up. Maybe you're the kid who shouldn't have existed in the first place.

I don't mean that, but it's just as fucked up as what you just said.

The sky isn't falling.

The earth is covered by 7.5 BILLION people.

And it's going up, every year.

We'd be fine with 7.5 million worldwide.

I'm annoyed that people with children pay less taxes. You should have to pay more. You use more services.

It was just rib at at sad pointless people shit in post I quoted not description of my stance.
