"Contrary to what many think, the richer someone is, the fewer kids they have. I am a rare exception. Most people I know have zero or one kid." This was tweeted by Elon Musk after he tweeted that USA birth rate has been below min sustainable levels for ~50 years.
I do not know what the position of the general population is. I personally want to have children, but I don't feel entirely financially able to do so yet. I think that the economic crisis of the last few years will make many people postpone this decision. Better put no children in this world... What future do they have. Plus they get turned into zombies by their cellphones, apps and videogames.Human overpopulation is already, and has been for a while, a huge problem. That is, unless you don't care about the state of the planet as well as other species. Homo sapiens has devastated the natural dynamic equilibrium, used up resources and driven most species extinct.
