the possibility of the following solution to the problem of the social element which continues to increase its numbers and has shown itself incapable of becoming self-sufficient. If we were to offer them indefinite extension of financial aid (or a large one-time payment) in return for their participation in a program of voluntary hysterectomy/testectomy, we would be able to both alleviate their ills while ensuring they do not continue to increase their burden upon those members of society who are forced to either support them or risk being victimized when they turn to theft and other crimes for financial gain in lieu of gainful employment. Everyone benefits- there is no down side! Indeed, is not a child oft viewed as a burden in much of the same cultures which are known for the prevalence of crime and disdain for gainful (legal) employment? We could also consider offering leniency in sentencing for certain criminal offenses on condition of participation in these same programs.
