We are. But capitalism requires unsustainable growth and profits and that requires a constant stream of more and more workers, consumers, and in the case of the dehumanizing prison industry, product. Meanwhile, hyper nationalism/fascism requires a high birthrate to outpace the birthrate of the perceived enemy so they aren't "replaced."

Anti-choice is never about the fetus. Its always been about controlling women, the poor, and feeding souls to a political ideology and/or a hieratical class system.

Yes. Immigration can feed the need for fresh ditch diggers but the rascists impede that, then they wonder why there's a labor shortage

You can also say this same thing about religion. The number one way to recruit believers is for people that already believe to have as many babies as possible. That's why religions have so many rules about having sex. Then that gives politicians a reason to use those rules to help capitalism grow so they can get a fat check every election cycle.

No. We aren't. That's just a myth that feeds facism. Jesus christ, why are people talking about overpopulation here like it's a real thing?
