We had 12+ pages of debate, so I would say that the title was excellent. If grown up people can't handle a simple title and discussion then society is even more doomed than I thought
Probably more than half of this "debate" is people arguing with you over your style and intentions. But yeah, you have what you wanted. Good luck with your future endeavours.

TBtw do you see any issues with people who have 4-5 kids? or do you think we should just outbreed each other irrespective of the consequences? I know many unhappy mums who love their kids but given the choice would not have had them. All the mums in my area look pretty miserable dealing with their kids. So I would say it is a mixed bag.
In regard to your question about people having 4 or 5 kids, if you had asked me 100+ years ago, I probably would have said that it's fine as long as they can take care of them. But considering population growth and its toll on the environment, I do think people should try to be more mindful of how many children they have. And thankfully, people are now having, on average, less kids than they were years ago. But to imply that people should just stop having children or should be expected to stop having children is rather ridiculous.
It has been done so far by cruel regimes only. Resources usage is missing the point as the environmental footprint adjusted - for a single persons in developed countries would be by far the most resource "wasteful" (a separate home, car, fridge, parking space, etc just for one person, and probably even more airplane and other travel and so on). And all that for a genetic pool dead-end :-)

Doesn't your genetic pool dead-end pay high taxes? I know we ran through this argument, but these taxes (not just pat leave) enable environmental investments and finally also child subsidies, schooling, kid's vacays organized by the state...whatever else. EPFL courses for kids.

It is like we want humans to be smart and well-adjusted but don't understand that it depends tightly on investments. We don't stick our noses in the business of single people but we do when they reproduce and we restrict their chance to have smart and well-adjusted off-springs.

It is a bit hypocritical.

This is everywhere not only CH - ultimately it's the taxpayer.
