Alan, you may well be right in saying that if all women were to only produce one child in their life, then the population problem could be solved by doing nothing else... but we can see by observation, that people who are more well off, generally tend to produce less children than those who are poor.
Ok, clearly Dita's mother and father should not have had children. Oh whooptie doo! Any suggestions as to what Dita's mother and father's life should consist of then?
Play bridge, walk the dog, watch Downtrodden Abbey or Scum Dancing, eat better, and worry about other things than their daughter's wedding or whether their son was at school or in police custody again. I (mostly) enjoyed bringing up children, but (a) I rarely had to worry about money and (b) my childless neighbours never seemed to be short of amusement or purpose in life.
Finding oneself looking longingly at baby clothes and babies toys, when one was supposed to be out shopping for some winter socks.
Not sure about kid pooling.
if it were not for the rich, there would be no poor people!
I'm pretty sure that you could offset the promaternity hormones with a pill
There are two reasons why governments tax the poor: (a) because there are LOTS more of them and (b) because they can't avoid it.
