Of course, this whole “kids are too expensive” thing has a funny familiarity to it, and by “funny”, of course, I mean, “tragically unfunny”. It’s precisely where we are. And precisely why western civilization, demographically speaking, is most definitely, irreversibly, going out of business. The numbers don’t lie. As a culture, we simply love ourselves too much to burden ourselves with little versions of ourselves.
And then there are those who will continue to see children for what they are: Miracles and blessings. But they are now the counter-culture. The good news is, the counter-culture doesn’t just have drool on its carpet and a beater in the garage. It has a future, and that future is at a table, surrounded by the laughs and cries of our grandbabies.
