 Many countries promote smaller families by birth control in order to take care of problems of scarce resources. In our country too, many educated families have just 1 or 2 kids whereas the less educated & less affluent families  continue  2 have many more kids. After few generations they will outnumber the better placed families.

 Do U think this can cause social upheaval as the number of illiterate ppl will far outnumber the educated & well placed citizens.  This will then lead to comparisons and feelings of unfairness by those who do not have access to finer things in life against the ppl who do have them & wud be a minority by then.

Some communities are against limiting family size so that they can  increase their census-  This is already tipping the national census in many countries all over the world. ..A few generations down the line the census wud be very different ' the present majority is set to be come a minority !

China too is anticipating problems due to increase in older population against a drop in the productive younger generation because of its one child per family policy in the past.

So on one hand it makes sense to follow population control policies whereas on the other hand it has its own consequences. ! What is your opinion on this !

The" have- nots" will outnumber the 'haves" & then may B we go the Russian revolution way. May be deliberate population control isnt such a good idea as the educated masses will reduce but the uneducated will go on multiplying & soon overtake the reigns ..

Basically smart people are waiting to have children at the right time and dumb people are breeding like bunnies. So the number of smart people is getting disproportionately low every year. The future of the earth is nothing but Idiocracy.

I saw in some debate topic people talking about Personal/Private choice n life.......I think birth control also part of these category.....& I know lots of smart people having more than 4,5 kids....SmileAm not against the BC, but I see a deep connection between birth control methods n the Women's Liberation Movement. SmileWomen are becoming destructive n thy r destroying family life, their relationships..... They may be trying to rationalise it in many ways, bt thy r trying to be liberated frm the slavery In fact it is a destructive phase....I think the birth control methods have stopped their creative channelization.... EmbarrassedSmileif some channels are not opened to thm they will becom very destructiveSmileBut can go beyond nature cos you have a higher nature also.... One can go beyond biology, n one has to otherwise one is a slave to hormones!Smile

Thats also true . The Ministry of Health & family welfare has been having a tough time convincing the rural population to go for family planning as multiple births were harming the mother's health & also the father's financial health ..
