Why would you pay to raise other kids and not your own?

I take it you pay tax

it cost about US$300 a year to feed a BRAT, clothes, shoes cost around US$50 a year in China.

book ...

Only 300 dollars a year? I am sure that was just made up!

93% percent of statistics on the internet are made up!
You know that every time I try to go
Where I really want to be
It's already where I am
'Cause I'm already there

Yes.

now imagine a situation

you want another child

you are a responsible taxpayer, as tempting as it is to engage in the systemically encouraged "dodge" mechanisms

you have a mindset that it is up to you to provide for the child, including a standard of education at least as good as you got

this might be nowadays 30,000 dollars a year, at least

since you sacrifice nearly half your income in tax, you can't do it

but yolandah and aisha can afford, thanks to you, to reproduce and send their kids to public school, where they are taught that you, the person that enabled their reproduction, oppress them, to hate you

I think if people are having that much trouble trying to raise their kids maybe there should be more tax dollars thrown at it.

I pay taxes and knowing that part of it goes to feed children makes me feel better about it all.

the better system is to cut out the politician and the administrative infrastructure to allow those that are more capable to reproduce in large numbers

that is how the Industrial Revolution enabled Britain to expand to a massive empire

people are not equal in one respect, reproduction

the chickens come home to roost on a socially irresponsible reproductive policy in the span of several generations

imbeciles cannot beat a clever organised foe
