I was just asking a large number of friends why they went on having lots of children even when their financial situation was precarious, the stress of bringing up all those children was playing havoc with their minds, and they really were concerned about the physical, emotional, and mental commitment the responsibility of bringing up a child properly would have on them long-term.
Was it a cultural thing or a traditional thing? Was this an instinct which came down the ages that the gene line had to continue, in times of strife and turmoil, that at least one child of that particular family, race, or clan managed to survive? All these are factors which have been affecting the lives of people all over the world, for millenniums, even though in many civilized countries, nobody bothers much about survival through gene lines, even though the subconscious wish that my line should linger on through my sons and grandsons is still very much a part of the male subconscious and psyche.
In fact I was just laughing that once a person was dead and gone, he was not going to come back and see what was happening to the rest of his family, Après moi, le deluge or to say, once I am gone, who cares if the floods appear and catastrophe occurs. But then, I have a different way of thinking, which other people may not consider, and it is a good thing they do not, because if everybody began to think, all right, why should I bother about my descendants, once I have passed on, so I could not care less if I had children or not, mankind is going to be in great trouble.
It has been exactly that sort of thinking, which has caused many administrations and governments in Europe to request their citizens to have at least one child. That is because for the last 30 years, the number of children being born in their countries has dwindled to a worrying bare minimum.
The reason is that for some reason or the other, people have not begun worrying about what is going to happen to them, when they are going to grow old. They do not take their own mortality and old age, seriously, because after all, the state is going to take care of them. So why do they need to have children, were not going to take care of them, when they are old? Unfortunately, this is the feeling, which is prevailing in a large number of so-called developed societies, and eroding the tradition of the parents are not going to be left alone in their old age. But there is going to be a child who is going to take care of them out of the brood of kids, they bore and brought up. It is either through a sense of tradition or upbringing or a cultural duty.
