"In times of old, parents had to take responsibility for raising their own children and educating them, but they also got to enjoy whatever dividend that created, in the form of young children who could help out on the farm and grown children that could support them in old age....[Now that this is often no longer the case,] it makes parenthood into a kind of suckers' game. The shrewd and rational thing is not to have children. Let other people have children and then let them pay for your pension and health care and old age."
