Q: How many governments are pushing for families and more people?

https://www.business-standard.com/article/international/despite-2-child-policy-china-sees-fewest-births-in-almost-60-years-in-2018-119012100247_1.html

 

I still don't get governments promoting population increases. Japan is fine with 30 million less folks over the last 30 years.

 

Russia, everybody thinks its a powerful country despite the population falling in half, having a gdp below Canada and paying people to have kids and the women would rather work as prostitutes around the world than put up with a Russian drunk wife beater.

 

America seems to think open borders and more welfare, more infrastructure and more poverty is a great thing.

 

Europe thinks immigrants are needed for future labor shortages despite robots and automation.

 

Is it power, taxes, controlling people, Why do these idiots want more people born? New taxpayers for supporting social safety nets, assuming they can get a job. Maybe inflating wages so you pay people off with worthless currency would work better.

 

Aside from all of this, the left crusaders that say the population is too high for the earth and we need control human reproduction due to scarcity of resources, food, water, etc.

 

This whole thing reeks of hypocrisy, but I never read an article calling out this crazy dichotomy.

Maybe Calhoun's theory was right after all.

1:2:4. If you don’t know what that means...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
