An article detailing what we already knew. Namely developed countries are having very few babies. Apparently 68 is going to be too low an age to retire in the UK because of this?

Is the welfare state sustainable? I don't think so. The number of people in work is going to shrink drastically.

AI / automation / technology / improved efficiency will shrink the work week. People will get more leisure time. (Which is a good thing, obviously.)

Unless it gives them more time to nurse a grievance they decide to settle with a gun.

LOL at some of the comments in this thread. If it was so selfish to have kids have you ever gotten in your parents faces and screamed at them "why did you selfish sods have me?"

I know its inconvenient to have kids and they entail responsibility (hence the thread title) but without them it sounds like developed countries and all the cultures associated with them will disappear.

And of course the future will be a dark place because there are no children. Self fulfilling prophecy.

Actually, I have yelled that at my mother multiple times, one of my brothers has too.
Her reason was none other than: Because I wanted kids.

Viola! We now have an Indian man wanting to sue his parents for having him.

The consensus on the other forum is that this guy is acting like a entitled, spoiled teenager that needs a good slap.
