Lately, I have been coming across articles and tv segments announcing the alarming decrease in birthrates. Some of these articles made the phenomenon (which is only happening in a handful of advanced nations) seems like the end of days are upon us. Hell no… look around, there are simply too many of us. Look at all the miseries of the world, I repeat, there are too many of us!
The thing is, we, the societies with the decreasing birthrates will just have to adjust our systems to embrace this new situation. Invest and improve in the efficiencies of our healthcare, education, workforce, technology, sciences in general, environment and in decent human relationships.
Less is more. Less miserable mass, more meaningful lives.
