    Hi Ladies/Gents,

    I have been really thinking about this issue. If you're a regular reader of Newspaper's, you will see certain articles about families demanding a council house, thuggish teens, lazy people refusing to work, etc. This may sound very harsh and controversial, but people who fit under the category should NOT be allowed to breed.

    Here is a scenario: There is a Mother who lives in a small council flat. She is unemployed and has children with different fathers. She is also has a few bad habits - cannabis and alcohol. The child grows up in a scenario where education is nothing, but hanging around on street corners smoking is the norm. Getting a job and working is unheard of, so its straight onto benefits and he/she will follow the Mother's footsteps - This is a cycle that will follow for generations.

    Now, if there were a way to control birth rate this would be avoided. Let's say she is allowed a maximum of 2 children - they can be focused upon in terms of education, personal development etc.

    What are your thoughts?

    If you are trolling, this will definitely rile a lot of people and bring out a lot of "free will" debates.

    In an ideal world, yes this works.

    Look, balface, I am talking about lifestyle. Also can you not use the term "/thread" - Fad, American Internet terminologies are sickening.

    We do need to stop retarded chavs taking over like, but I think more along the lines of enforcing education and cutting benefits to bums rather than sterilization

    Sterilization was the wrong term to use. I think there should be a birth control, though. Even if it’s less harsh – for example: if you have more than 2 children, there will be no financial support for anymore. But then again they will still have more children, which would ultimately affect the way they’re brought up.

    Does talking about lifestyle make one exempt from using correct grammar whilst doing so? No.

    Also, attempting to belittle me after I pointed out your fatously obvious error isn't going to work. There is no point pretending you have any respect for the English language if you don't know the difference between "newspaper's" and "newspapers".

    If you start sterilising people who do things you disagree with, where do you draw the line? Who decides what is acceptable and what isn't? It is a ridiculous idea. Discourage people from having children they cannot support, by all means, but we can't take away their facility to do so.

    Could you please explain why being in a democracy would necessarily entail that the OP's argument will go against democracy?

    the average birth rate is only 2.2 as it is.. and its set to decline.. we will have natural decrease pretty soon.. especially as the boarders are being closed up.. so there is no real need for a cull

    To be fair, by the time these people are old enough to receive benefits they'll probabky have 6+ kids anyway lol

    This will never be implemented because it's a breach of free will. At most, the government can cut the benefits, but that may just make the children suffer even more.

    In a free and democratic society we must guarantee the freedoms of the entire population. In this case the freedom to have the children they want.

    Listen, Shakespeare, it was a grammatical mistake. I am assuming your misspelling of FATUOUSLY was mistake too?

    If you're going to take the roll of a grammar police officer, at least make sure you're spelling is 100% correct, because you will end looking like a fool. :cool:
