The Left, for its part, offers an appeal to moral virtue: it’s better to pay more in taxes and to share the burdens as a community. It’s kinder, gentler, more compassionate, more equitable. Unfortunately, as recent European elections results demonstrate, nothing makes a citizen more selfish than socially equitable communitarianism: once a fellow’s enjoying the fruits of government health care and all the rest, he couldn’t give a hoot about the general social interest; he’s got his, and if it’s going to bankrupt the state a generation hence, well, as long as they keep the checks coming till he’s dead, it’s fine by him. (Mark Steyn, America Alone, p.45)
That’s basically it in a nutshell. As long as the cheques keep arriving, it’s the breeders’ problem. Not theirs.
Can we say, sterility tax?
