2017: “By EU standards, Ireland is pumping out new babies”

2015: Irish Journalist Sarah Carey – Why Germany have less babies than Ireland:

“several years ago I suggested that Irish women were responding to the financial crisis by getting preggers.”

“A life-affirming, opportunity-cost thing.”

“three reasons: (why Ireland is now baby booming and Germany (not so much))

  • They can’t have children.
  • They don’t want to have children.
    • my comment: in one sentence –  because modes of survival are not sustainable and economic security shaky non-complete-wreckless people say: no
    • children are additional work to the work you already have
      • labor market demands to do more and more work with equal pay
      • IMHO it is again – the irrational unsustainable monetary exploitational private-debt-bank system that is FAILING, that produce 99.9% losers

        • the fanatic focus on money – not family – is producing sick psychopathic people that are stressed and depressed
        • lack of sustianability: gives millennials feelinkg of things get worse by the day – no positive outlook – have to fight and work hard and harder just to keep the living standards that their parents were able to establish during post world war 2 1960s economic boom times
        • work is without meaning and becomes an obsession/distraction from systemic social neglect/underdevelopment of inter human skills
        • why cultivate friendship – if you (still) have (enough?) money to buy whatever you need when you need it
          • economy cultivates single house hold consumerism – sharing cars/TVs sells less cars/TVs X-D
        • why talk to people if you have an TV that talks to you – why go dancing – discotheques suck and are full of idiots and drugs
  • Or, they’d like to have a child, but circumstance has worked against them.

it turns out that our (women’s) priority is establishing a stable relationship before creating a family.”

maybe that is one of the core problems:

how to keep a relationship stable?

“Marriage is no longer an imperative, but a secure relationship still is

Society’s obsession with Mr Right puts an awful lot of pressure on Mr Wrong.

As women’s independent economic circumstances improve, so does the bar for a potential husband.

But still, it’s odd to think that even though it’s not 1930, there are women out there who would love to have a child, but can’t, because it’s the one thing you can’t do on your own.

It makes you wonder if the key to fertility is compromise?”

HAHA!

so MAYBE Germany is too much obsessed with perfectionism when it comes to relationship partners or people / youngsters simply were not taught how to sustain stable relationships – and thus – stays childless.

Another dramatic byproduct of Germany’s education system that just “forgets” about social skills and relationships and focuses solely on work more, work hard, work harder, party hard, party harder, drive fast, drive faster, drive really fast, distract and die.

Take a pill if you can’t cope – whatever makes money is “good”.
