What are your opinions on this? Really , whats the point of having a noisy shitmachine (also known as a baby)? We already have 7 Billion of us sucking Earths resources why do we need more?

It might be a good idea, but there are dangerous implications regarding the incentive it might give to governments to even more closely intrude into people's lives. But everybody always downplays this until its too late, so fuck you... Was that an armed drone going past your window?

it's a terrible idea, considering that different parts of the world need different solutions to kerb their population troubles
Japan, for example, needs /more/ babies, because their population is freakin' old.

Honestly the minute and body of people who calls themselves a government tells you that you can't make as many babies as you want
There is something terribly wrong

Responsibility of Population vs Power of Government

Is it not the government's duty to take control if it becomes apparent that some part of the population can't take care of itself? Like a parent taking care of the child? Or would it be better for it to respect everybody's rights, all the way to the collapse of society?

How is it wrong? Maybe when the worlds resources finally run out people will realize they should have kept their dick in their pants ( or at least used a contraceptive.)

Lets get this straight, in the united states the people are supposed to be the government. It is a means for us to protect ourselves. If the population is that big of an issue, that it might cause the "collapse of society" then a more humane solution should be found. If the government considers enforcing a law to limit how many children people are aloud to have, then In my opinion this government is no longer is no longer acting in the interests of their own people. An empire will never hold a greater importance then that of the people which are apart of it.

If a government founded on enlightenment era philosophy no longer considers "baring as many children as you wish" a part of the natural born rights it swears to protect, then I want out.

Dont forget Japan too.

Also one child per 2 people means that its nowhere near the replacement rate and the population will plummet.

"Hello, we heard there was more than one baby on this premises, may we exterminate it?"

Does this sound right? And it'd just cause a shit storm with conservatives.

The government should not do that, but I wish people would stop kids when they are not prepared for it.

Too many people have kids before they even know how to take care of themselves.

Because you would most likely decrease the world's population. I know that might not seem that bad, but it's going to be harder for a person to find girlfriends. The reason most people have two children is because there are two parents. It reminds me of a George Carlin routine where he said a mother should have one kid and not even bother replacing the husband.

The government has no business into the family planning of a married couple. If they want to have 4 or 5 kids and have the ability to raise them sufficiently they have every right to do so. We're a species known for ingenuity so we will find ways to better use our resources and to circumnavigate the lack of resources we may come across in the future regardless of the Earth's population.

So you think the whole thing goes against the American constitution, and kind of makes America into a hypocrite country?

There is definitely something important about Men get to be treated as Men. And the image of a man not being able to lead his life as he likes and hold his head up high (because he's being led by the hand, by the government his whole life) is really shocking. It strips away his right to autonomy. And there's something like, if a man leading a life where he is pursuing what he thinks is best, if that isn't respected, then the society is crushing one of the most important things about the human spirit, which is what it's all about, really.

But then contrast that with the image of a horrendously obese young mother on state support, who spends all her money on greasy food, cigarettes, and booze and keeps pumping out kids for the sake of the extra income it will earn her. If a country finds itself burdened with a large portion of the population who aren't taking responsibility for their own lives, who is going to take responsibility for them?

No. Not necessary to solve your perceived problem of overpopulation either. Nature takes care of things and works for balance.
Also usually once a country becomes developed, they start having fewer children per family.

a one child policy would increase the use of contraception which is completely unacceptable. a better policy would be to prevent all premarital sex, that way only morally supreme human beings would be allowed to procreate. a survival of the most moral, if you will. i call it moral selection

I like that idea. It would be better to just sterilize one whole generation of children.

Despite the fact that this would impede people's freedoms, which I'm usually very much against, I would totally want to get behind this.

There are already too many fucking people in the world.

Many countries are actually losing people as we speak.

I think the limit should be having 1 of each sex. Obviously a couple might find they have 3 boys before getting a girl which is fine. But once they get that second sex then they stop. Then if you want more adopt.

It's totally fine! Don't worry about the population it isn't growing too large at all! Continue breeding as you like everything will be fine!

Also, this. Dependency ratio is a thing. Not to mention the countries with the highest crude birth rates are less developed countries where it would be difficult to enforce, just getting them to wear condoms is a huge issue.
