Hungarian PM in a hurry toward extinction

He has announced tax breaks and other financial incentives to mothers of four or more children. The reason is to increase the birth rate, so there is less need to rely on immigrants. You know, those poor unfortunates he is keeping out with razor wire, guns and savage dogs?

I didn’t know Hungary’s birth rate had been falling. For a sane person, that would be cause for celebration on a grossly overpopulated planet, but then I don’t know what planet the fellow is living on.

It can’t be Earth. On this planet, one of the best acts of magic anyone could do would be to halve global population without imposing death or suffering on anyone.

If you haven’t already, please read my summary of the work of John B. Calhoun on what population pressure does. Orbán’s persecution of asylum seekers is a perfect example of the kind of insane violence Calhoun had observed with rats.
I’d like to contrast insane Orbán with an inspiring young woman who has decided to be childfree, because that’s the best contribution she can make to everyone’s welfare.
