Reproduction Regulators Recommend Rigorous Reform

The logic appears to go like this: Germans will only have children if they are paid by the state to do so.

Children

That this money must first be taken from them by the state to only later be given back to them if they behave properly (improperly?) is the first oddity here but not really the issue at the moment – or at least not the one German politicians want to talk about. The problem now is that Germans aren’t having enough children (only 12% of families with children here have 3 or more). They are not following the German reproduction regulation logic like they are supposed to and are refusing to have large families despite regular increases to the child benefit or Kindergeld payments given here.

In an attempt to counteract what is now the German one-child-per-family-if-they-have-any-children-at-all tradition, some reproduction regulators are suggesting that families now be given higher payments for each successive child born. I’m sure this will work just great. Well, I’m kind of sure it might work maybe, I mean.

Of course more money will first have to be taken in from the Germans before some of it can be given back to some of them again but that’s never bothered legislators here before so why break with a tradition like that now?

  1. Almost every politician seems like obsessed with making a baby of publics. Putin mentioned about that they underlined the “natural population growth” for Russia carefully in one his speech recently. I don’t know what means of opposite of this, “unnatural population growth”:) Turkey’s president “make 3 babies minimum,” says to the public. I guess, the politicians are more related with following to the public’s bedroom activities than public’s education, feeding or housing issues.

  2. Think of it as a bachelor tax. The Roman empire imposed one of those to try to stem their social collapse, but it didn’t work.
    Nothing creates Civilizational Ennui as well as “Democratic Socialism.” It’s characterized by much public whinging about small things, followed closely by getting preoccupied with First World Problems, such as Trans-sexual rights to enter woman-only colleges, occupying “serious discussion”.

    I just recently noticed this picking-to-death of small things in Canada, and it started to look really, really familiar.
