When people kill each other. When people can't afford to have kids. When healthcare costs are going up. I wonder why population is going down. Hmmm. 🤔

When healthcare costs are going up.

Thats a consequence of a world in which older people outnumbered younger one. The older one is, the more advanced medical aid this one need. In the current state of affaires, there is simply nothing we can do about it. It's just the old market mechanism: More demand means higher prices.

Its more that people don't want to spend the time and money required for children
