Why? Because marrying and having kids is a certain financial disaster for any average person. There are two exceptions and those two exceptions are the people who have kids--the first exception is the poor and stupid. Now when people are stupid they don't think about anything at all for the most part. They can't plan ahead, they can't financially manage their affairs therefore those people have kids, because they just don't think about anything—they like to screw. "
Either give us back the commons or give us a basic income in lieu of it, that's the choice.
As for stupidity, if people were more wealthy their level of intelligence would improve, because poverty leads to a vicious cycle of poor decision making.
