Like a column of smoke from a fire in the distance, the manifestations of narcissism are far more subtle and seemingly benign than the raging fire responsible for them.

I have 4 wives and could handle 1 or 2 more. Only weaklings marry themselves.

Sologamy has been a thing for a long time. Catholic institutions are based on the principle.

Historically, only 2 of three males had offspring at all. Closer to 1 of 2 today for natural reasons

They are not taking vows of celibacy and metaphorically marrying god or a submitting to a higher calling, they are litterally marrying themselves.

Celibacy is problematic for other reasons, but not inherently narcissitic.

Celibacy is no problem at all. At least not for everyone else.

2.1 children birthed per woman is the absolute minimum necessary to sustain our society.

Meanwhile, the West has been doing seemingly everything it can to disincentive men and women from marrying and starting families, including pressuring women into prioritizng workforce careers during their peak child-rearing years, denigrating stay-at-home moms, legalized and taxpayer-funded contraception and baby murder (aka "abortion"), liberalized divorce laws, pushing "feminism" as an almost-explicitly anti-family credo, etc.

Western Civilization deserves its inevitable extinction.

Listen I get it, we are living in a time where norm critique has deconstructes all boundaries as pointless and oppressive, a time where self fullfilment is the new religion. Give it enough time and people will re-learn that just because you can do something doesn’t mean it should be done. We will witness a lot of stupid games stupid prizes / darwin awards. Yes, you can drive a car with your feet if you want to. Go ahead and teach us why you shouldn’t.

"2.1 children birthed per woman is the absolute minimum necessary to sustain our society."

So? There is no obligation to sustain society. It's not a duty. It's not an obligation.


"denigrating stay-at-home moms"

I assume since you consider it critical to the survival of society, then you're all for paying parents to stay at home and produce and raise their kids, right?

Unfortunately Nim is incorrect about the relearning thing.

I still don't get it. We have based our cultures on heir-spare principles and the idea that most adults should simply not breed.

Replacement rates including net migration is actually 1.7 for the US.

Another question that begs asking is what is an appropriate population?

The US seemed to be ok under Eisenhower with about half the population of today.

Could it be that a lot of societies' ills are simply crowding issues?

I have never suggested anything other than birth rates developed word women are currently comfortable with have a lot of upsides.

Never heard anyone coherently explain why there should be more than 200 million of any kind of mammal on the planet really.

Perhaps some rodents may serve a purpose in numbers above a billion, but it seems rat populations are mostly a function of the number of humans, so I rather doubt it.

Mice perhaps. They are important for all kinds of predators up to and including wolves.
