Yes, it might seem that way. Those who choose not to raise children do so, I assume, because they know the world is vastly over-populated and do not want to burden earth further. Or they do not want to subject their offspring to present conditions.
However, raising children is actually one of the most important and sacred tasks one can take on. It is not a fleeting commitment, as conscientious parents will know. One is involved 24/7.
The very process of birth and growth is enough to change one's priorities and principles. It is capable of instilling a sense of wonder of how the human bodies can be capable of such a thing, of how the human body immediately knows it is time to produce breastmilk, for example, and the wonder that this is the result of an act of creation by two beings.
With this comes RESPONSIBILITY; parents immediately turn into role models, whether they want to or not, because a baby/child loves them unconditionally and imitates their behaviour. If we want at the next generation to be caring, respectful of life, generous, humble, dedicated and energetic, THEN WE MUST DEMONSTRATE THAT IN FRONT OF THEM ON A DAILY BASIS FOR MANY YEARS.
My great respect and love is due to all parents who have struggled against all odds to raise their children in a way which will benefit not only themselves but also their communities and ultimately, the global population.

You are right, T-Man: it does so often seem that way at the moment, and indeed for a very long time in the past. Yet there are astounding people who manifest qualities of "goodness", such as respect, gratitude, unconditional love etc. It is a case of increasing their numbers in the future.
The title doesnt seem to be part of human nature imo Quoting: T-Man
Its those same people that chose to not raise kids while the opposition has 4+ per household. at least so it seems
