    The 1920s saw the advent of expensive and clunky contraception: condoms and STD treatments (Listerine mouthwash is a reformulated gonorrhea treatment. Mucous membranes are mucous membranes regardless of location.) and that information was lost in a general tech boom. The 70s and 80s saw sperm donation and host mothering take off. The S&L boom and 1994-2006 housing bubble followed.

    Increased selection, fewer adult children per mother, certainly should trip circuits in the primitive brain so that a great depression results. The goal being to get rid of the idiots that caused the selection pressure to go up.

    Govt social programs are responsible. People have no incentive to be vigilant when it comes to things like having children or making economic choices because they know the bloated safety net will catch them and they won't need to be made responsible for their choices. In fact the govt even gives incentives.
