Why Modern Western Man Doesn’t Care About Having Children

, ,

Michel Houellebecq, The Elementary Particles:

Children existed solely to inherit a man’s trade, his moral code and his property. This was taken for granted among the aristocracy, but merchants, craftsmen and peasants also bought into the idea, so it became the norm at every level of society. That’s all gone now: I work for someone else, I rent my apartment from someone else, there’s nothing for my son to inherit. I have no craft to teach him, I haven’t a clue what he might do when he’s older. By the time he grows up, the rules I lived by will have no value—he will live in another universe. If a man accepts the fact that everything must change, then he accepts that life is reduced to nothing more than the sum of his own experience; past and future generations mean nothing to him. That’s how we live now. For a man to bring a child into the world now is meaningless.

Men are different from women when it comes to “having” children. Far fewer men grow up thinking about having children than women do. After the couple has children, especially when they reach toddler age, far more men change their feelings about “having” children and enjoy them more than they thought they would.

The future belongs to those who have children. Historically white Europe is finished, and its future is to be part of black, Muslim Africa, with all of Africa’s savagery, stupidity, and poverty.
