I was thinking that the problem with Social Security, specifically that there are too few new workers to take care of the burden of the baby boomers is a problem that the baby boomers themselves have created.
By legalizing abortion, they have jeopardized their future benefits by killing millions of future SS contributors. Even if you made it illegal now, you would have to wait more than 21 years for the added workers to make an impact, and even then there is a diminished generation breeding, since the people now coming of age to have children are, for the most part, born after Roe v Wade. SS is due to be insolvent in 14 years.
Fascinating that selfishness would be the self-focused generation’s undoing.
Like I said, just a random thought.
