Underpopulated and people having less kids. Your false narrative is used to justify illegal immigration.

I agree for the most part, but for the population. Gen Z is the smallest generation yet. You've got places like Japan who are running out of people and no new ones coming down the pike.

Having said that, I think there should be parental licensure. As a wise man once said, “you need a license to buy a dog, or drive a car. Hell, you need a license to catch a fish! But they'll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father.” Too true. So many people (I was one of those) are not in a position to have children, but do. Whether it's finances, maturity, relationship status - they're just not ready. It can work out, as in my case (well, she walked and I raised 3 kids on my own, which turned out to be the best thing to happen to me), but why not have some standards at the start just to try and cut down on kids being raised by kids and dipshits?
