The tax-payers of tomorrow

Reading this post on Speaking as a parent, I become really depressed about the the "me me me-dia". I'm childless by choice, but unlike the Ms. Bindel cited in that post, I regard paying for other folks' kids to be educated - and that there be other folks' kids to educate - as part of my retirement planning. I need a decently functioning economy to pay my pension, up to the point that the Singularity intervenes, anyway.

Though when I hear of people like Ms. Bindel - as well as the usual run of self-serving politicians - I sometimes think that maybe the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement may be being insufficiently radical in their proposed policies.
