Hey man, maybe people are just getting wise to the fact that children suck, man!

Seriously, why would anyone in their right mind want any?

Dang, I had that figured out before I was 10.

It's tough on the white nationalists who see their demographic shrinking. That's why historically they've opposed abortion. They want more white babies, no matter what.

The government pays the wrong type of people to breed and strangles the economic conditions so hard so that the right people will feel they can't afford to breed.  (This could be changing with an uptick in the economy.  We'll see.)
The great majority of government social support goes to whites.

Get the FACTS!

I  never mentioned anything about race idiot.  Learn to read and quit trolling.

abortion rates among Black women are much higher than we thought: They are four times the rate of white women. The report found that on average, 41 in 1,000 pregnancies among Black women (ages 15-19) are terminated compared to 10 among white women and 20 among Latinas.

You constantly comment on matters you know less than nothing about. You frequently come across as a racist buffoon.

One has nothing to do with the other. If you weren't a "racist buffoon," you would realize that.

This is going to sound terrible, but technology has evolved to the point where women and men don't really need each other as much as they used to. This means there's less of a benefit to starting a family and rearing kids. (Generally speaking)

Women can secure work for themselves, are generally safe in Western countries, and have unlimited birth control. Because of the birth control, men can have non-committal sex, hire a prostitute, find gratification through pornography. Considering that 95% of alimony payers are men, and over 50% of marriages end in divorce, there may be logic behind staying away from marriage/kids.

That and wondering what future is there really? for kids born now.

Seriously, my grandparents were born during the British empire, when any English person could basically go anywhere in the world and get a good job or get land cheaply. People lived really interesting lives. Thats all gone.

What is there for kids now?

Grow up in an uneccesarily complicated world and struggle like all your life just to have the basics (house with a nice yard and vehicle) of what people took for granted a 100 years ago.

In a world with proliferating nuclear weapons, climate change, worsening environment, demographic decline for whitey, and increasing terrorism. Its all starting to unravel.
Catch my drift?

I understand what you're saying, but I think it's more nuanced than just doom and gloom. There's going to be serious growing pains, but there were growing pains in the past. We have a much higher quality of life than ever before. We just don't notice it day to day. Is the world a scarier place than 100 years ago? Imo, absolutely not. Humanity is far less brutal to each other than even 50 years ago.

The new frontier may not be America or Australia anymore. But human creativity and growth doesn't end with land. As long as there's human suffering, there's room to build, explore, create new things to make life better.

While we (Anglos) don't have the extreme* advantage we once did, I think the "mean opportunity" has increased globally.

*we still have some advantage; see that we are able to make a pretty good life in a place like Korea without any local language skills.

In reply to the OP, I just spent a week traveling in the southeastern US and America has grown old. It's tough to have kids when you're 50 or older.
