As someone who is not the biggest fan of humanity, I sometimes wonder about procreation. Does the world need any more people who will run it all to the ground?

Apparently, a mayor in France is giving out Viagra like candy. Why? Because he wants there to be more people in his village. Currently, there are 650 people that he is governing over. Unfortunately, because of the decrease in population, the local school might get shut down. The couples that qualify need to be between 18 and 40 years old. Do you want some Viagra, but do not live in Montereau? No worries. Simply move there and you will be given the magic pill, too! Reading the article, I wondered whether the pills would come in the mail, be available for pick up at the mayor’s office, or be given out at checkout at the grocery store. Unfortunately, as I read on, I found out that the decree issued last week was really a publicity stunt. No one came to pick up the medication. Even if someone came in, they would be sent away with nothing, because the mayor has no blue pills to give out. It was his hope for the news to garner donations to keep the school open.
There might be something in the French water because the mayor of a Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois issued a decree forbidding people from getting sick. It was meant to direct people’s attention towards the terrible medical care in the area.
Going back to population control, I think we have all heard about the “one child only” rule in China, which was implemented in 1979. The law changed a couple of years ago, allowing two children per family. Because of the initial policy, China is struggling with an aging society. There are not enough young people to take care of the elderly. Even with the “relaxed” two kids policy, people are only having about 1.6 kids per family. The lawmakers are now considering getting rid of the rule altogether.
If you have ever been to India (or seen any footage from there), chances are that you know there are A LOT of people living in that country. The forecast shows that in 2045 India will have more people than China if they do not control their population. China’s territory is quite extensive. India’s is not. Where will all those people fit? The government is considering imposing a “two kids only” rule, but it is not a very popular idea.
Within only 50 years, Pakistan’s population had grown five-fold from 34 million to 171 million. Aside from encouraging contraception, the authorities are also suggesting having kids at least three years apart.
South Koreans are said to go extinct in 2750. When I read that, I scoffed. It is so far into the future that I would not worry about it. There are so many things that could happen before now and then that could cause a global wipe-out. The government of South Korea, however, if considering the future now and they are incentivizing people to have more kids by providing them with monetary support for every child. I am not sure if that is still the case, but in 2010, on the third Wednesday of every month, electricity was turned off in office buildings at 7.30 pm in hopes that people go home early and procreate.
Back in the 60s, Romania’s population growth was at zero. In order to combat that, elective abortions were banned and import of contraception was criminalized. On top of that, anyone who was 26 years old or older and did not have children had to pay a 10-20% income tax.
Have you ever thought that maybe the government does not care about women rights as they claim while fighting for all sorts of abortions, as much as they want to control the population? As I wrote this, I stumbled upon the Kissinger Report, which was composed in the 70s and declassified in the 90s. The subject of the document was: “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” I wanted to share with you some of the population methods it included:
- the legalization of abortion;
- financial incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates;
- indoctrination of children; and
- mandatory population control and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless an LDC implements population control programs.
If you would like to refresh your memory on the report, or if you are not familiar with it, feel free to take a look –> HERE <–. It is a fascinating read.
