Make more babies!

For what? Why is there a need to make more babies? To generate economic growth, to make the statistics of growth look better? Why would people want to have babies if the babies are meant to be another digit in the economy? Aren’t babies the fruit of love, of people who love to have them, to enjoy them, to share their love with them? Babies that are brought into this world for any selfish reason other than to love them, and to cherish this gift of life, should not be born at all. Why is the state so adamant and steadfast in urging the people to produce babies? It must be for the good of the people, I think. If that be the case, what is the state doing to make sure that the babies are given a life worth living for instead of being born into a pressure cooker, a system that is hardly conducive to bringing up children unless the parents are financially able? The cost of bringing up children today is frightening. And the cost of failure when a child is unable to cope or compete in a highly strung society is not amusing. The parents too will fail if they do not have the financial means to give the child what is now regarded as basics in a sophisticated modern style of living. Today’s child will be deprived if they are going to live the life of poverty, living off the land, and making little toys for their own amusement from throw ways or discarded rubbish. It can be painful for children who cannot have the little things that other children are having, or the little comfort of a home. Make more babies? So easy? No need to think about money, about affordability? No need to think about the child’s own good? Multiply recklessly is not the way. It is simply irresponsible. How many new lives will be brought into this world to suffer the consequences of a system that only the very best will survive and the rest be made to struggle for a life time making ends meet? Is our social economic system conducive to bringing up children? What have the govt done towards building a more equitable society where the majority could live a better life instead of working like beast of burden just to make ends meet? Throwing some money good enough?

As long as the system is centred on economic growth and high cost of living at the expense of all else, they can shout on top of Bukit Timah Hill, calling people to have more babies and it will still not work.

Some things may work with money, like winning votes, but not everything boils down to money.

Ok... here's the deal. EVERYONE I met with on my visit to Hotel Singapore favours a higher population density in Singapore.

The state has no place in social engineering or population planning...however the S'pore State has chosen to think otherwise.

Originally they wanted 15 million target for population. Even I was astounded at this. However raising the matte with a few (well-known) engineers and architects -- 15 million is NO PROBLEM -- infrastructure can handle and what extra is needed can be built.

So it has been decided that 10 million is the target, but the population are "officially informed" figures more like 8 mill to 9 mill.

Instead of just focusing in immigration, life extension and higher birth rates are sensible strategies to adopt to achieve the hight population targets in relatively short time.

World population is 7 billion and rapidly increasing. 1.3 of those are Chinese nationals an another 1.1 are Indian nationals.

Get used to high population numbers is my advice -- and look at all those people as "customers", which means "opportunity" for all you hard-core profit-seeking greedy capitalist pigs, like me.

I am now a convert: I can see the enormous potential and vibrancy of 15 million souls in my favourite Hotel Singapore.

This is the new position I will adopt, and actively argue the case for this number. The government will love me :-)

Just a simple view; if YOU ARE UNABLE TO CARE FOR YOUR BABIES,
DON"T Make them.

patriot, sorryto tell you , but it is not that simple.

Babies are made by fucking.

Fucking feels really good. The urge to fuck is really strong, and requires "fulfillment". Prrof: if not for the satisfaction of that insatiable urge to fuck, none of us would be here.

That is how smart our genetic code is: it actually has instructions to "make" the proteins which make up the organism (us) which has the in-built design to reproduce (fuck) and the required motivation to do so (feeling horny).

sure, you have some control over nature: contraception, abstinence, self-control, but nature also "understands" statistics: some people will mange to control the creation of babies, however most of the species will surrender to the "intentions" of their genetic code's "objective" to reproduce itself.

So enjoy yourself: fuck as much as you like. That's what nature intended anyway. As a species we should celebrate the fact that we need LARGE NUMBERS to stay dominant.

The other day there was a road accident on the PIE. The whole expressway was paralysed for several hours. And we are only 5m. Imagine what life would be in 6m, 10m or 15m?

Produce more babies? For what?

Matilah_Singapura said...

redbean:

People will be fucking and producing babies regardless of any of our opinions or government meddling.

as long as people are left alone and the borders left open, the "magic number" will occur naturally as humans choose on an individual basis whether to have babies or to make S'pore their home.

Traffic accidents cause delays whether you are in a kampong or a metropolis. The more traffic you have, the more accidents you will have, and thus the more "events" of delays -- that is just straightforward statistics.

Achieving any "objective" always comes with a trade-off. E.g. (1) You want to be fit and at the correct weight: you have to take the trouble to exercise and have a good diet. (2) You want to buy something for cash (no debt) -- you cut back on spending and save your money, and put it toward your future purchase. OTOH you can have it NOW and take on the debt, and pay interest.

So the benefits of having 10 or 15 million souls in Singapore does come with many trade-offs. some of the "costs": space becomes premium, traffic will be heavier, running private vehicles will cost more. Benefits: more vibrant city, more diversity, larger pool of savings, larger pool of labour/ skills, larger pool of consumers...etc.

The island will sink or run out of air. Tension will be very high when everyone is fighting for his little space in jam pack piece of rock.

Those jokers planning to fill this fish bowl with fishes are simply crazy and irresponsible.

Indeed, it does offer more choices in many things.

The ah peks for example; will have more beauties from different regions to choose and pick. Take away the contraceptives and lo and behold! The population will bloom naturally. And all are locally produced.

redbean:

You are trying to predict the future in a bad way without the ability to prove anything.

I would argue that the height of "irresponsibility" would be to control and limit the population by legislative force -- i.e. actively, by law intervening with people's individual desires to have babies and live wherever the fuck they want -- choose to.

patriot:

I would say your "prediction" is already happening. Many of my friends -- male and female -- have married "foreigners" (aka interracial marriages). I meet more chap-cheng Singapore kids now than I can ever remember whenever I visit The Hotel.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

I would argue that the height of "irresponsibility" would be to control and limit the population by legislative force...Matilah

I disagree. The height of irresponsibility is to encourage people to produce within thinking if they can afford it, and creating a system that is anti family.

The beauty of the system is that they have tailored the economic and population policies to be highly dependent on immigrants, which is objectively beneficial to their political support base, while formulating other policies that in essence really discourages locals from procreating.

Matilah_Singapura said...

once foreigners are in the territory, it doesn't matter who does the fucking which leads to baby-making. The point is that in the math, humans in the territory are breeding causing an overall increase in population numbers.

Folks, get real. How long are folks going to continue with this mythical local- vs foreign dichotomy?

Once a human is physically within S'pore territory, no more distinctions need to be made -- ie.e. it doesn't matter who they are or where they come from.

Foreign or local = HUMAN BEING. Borders are bullshit anyway, as are the various "races". There is but one race: The Human Race.

Nothing got me more interested than this topic of making more babies.
This "Make more babies" make me many times happier than when I am greeted with Keong Hee Huat Chai.
One need not restrict himself to make babies locally.It is just like producing guppies in a fish tank.You need not stay here to be productive.Go to the ocean...
Go Taiwan,Korea,Malaysia or even Indonesia and produce.You may not know one of these days our local younger generation,with the way they brought up, may send us to the old folk home in nearby country.At least during that time,we can have another choice to retire with dignity.

Happy New year to all.Lets produce more rabbits....oops,where 's Wally?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Agongkia,

Wally must be busy making babies. No need govt intervention or incentives. Like Matilah, making babies are their forte: )

Most of the fucking done by humans is not for the production of babies -- as the stupid Vatican would have humanity do. fucking is motivated by one "emotion": the feeling of horniness or elevated sexual desire.

Thanks to the internet and its ubiquity, images of male semen are all to common place now. What used to be the purview of biology textbooks and forbidden "blue films" and hush-hush black market porno in previous eras is now available -- like Twitter and Facebook -- on everyone's mobile phone.

Also, it doesn't take long for one to notice that men's semen is rarely seen to be used the way it was intended: ejected into a vagina, up the cervix in order to fertilize an ovum (or two), which then goes onto to form into a fetus.

If the fetus survives -- especially the non-Catholic approved procedure of Dilation and Curettage (D&C) , and if "all goes well", in 9 months a human being is ejected from the very same vagina in which male semen was deposited in previously.

How about that? A multi-functional organ -- which also happens to look great wide-open and close-up on a web page -- also available on mobile devices.

Anyway, back to semen: on the internet semen is not used for making babies. It is used to "enhance" the credibility of pornography.

Mankind -- thanks to the internet -- has cum to accept that semen looks great when it delivered with verve onto faces, mouths, breasts, hair, buttocks and occasionally an anus.

And let's face it fellas...c'mon, be honest... you all have similar fantasies of shooting your thick man-cream over your object of desire -- be they male, female or even animal. This is not something you readily admit...but feel not guilty, we all harbour these desires.

Of course when it come to oral matters, we men love our cum to be swallowed -- it gives us satisfaction of someone else "surrendering" to our dominance of sexual power/ powress.

I go out on a limb and speak on behalf of Wally: both of us have the required microbiological goings-on to produce babies, however we have found alternative uses for our man cream.

HAPPY SHOOTING FELLAS!

Agongkia, how me wishes that the World is borderless, colourless and without any divide. Me then will travel from East to West, North to South and tell You a secret, this uncle rabbit will certainly have many bunny babies.

However, me will stick to my view that if one is not able to give happiness to their offsprings, do not ever fuck around without contraceptive. To be in Sin does not mean one can commit sin with no qualm and guilt.
