Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is worth a diary and you properly identified it as a rant, although it seems to antagonise.

At some point I have stated that governments should not encourage, nor subsidize having children, as Spain has just done, offering a €2500 check per new baby.  Apparently Germany is also embarking on the procreation craze and France has been for a long time.  This current vogue seems to be based on economic studies that say social security pensions must be shored up.  Not very farsighted, or creative.

Reproduction exists naturally regardless of policy and governments should be creating awareness campaigns about misuse of resources and climate change.  

How about adding your views in a diary update?
