While the analogy is not perfect, here’s how I’m thinking today about the government-mandated “free” supply of sterilization, abortifacients, and contraception: It’s Soma from Huxley’s Brave New World. The lower castes lose the will to truly feel or experience, addicted to unlimited sex without consequences, dependent on the government for their every need, rendered incapable of independent thought by government indoctrination (public schools). Natural reproduction becomes a thing of the past, and the elite (the Alphas) have all the power.
Huxley was a prophet.
