    need support for childcare people raising children too because all contraception including abortion are only individual solutions to put off childbearing until one can afford the aupair and totally exclude people who might also wish to reproduce but will never have the economic wherewithal.

    AND EVERY SOCIETY NEEDS TO REPRODUCE.

        •  Just wasn't sure (0+ / 0-)

          with the remark about the au pair in there.  I'm also not so sure that everyone needs to reproduce and why the working class specifically?  I don't understand.  I personally believe it's up to the person or couple.

          •  it is a systemic question ... in the absence (0+ / 0-)

            of social reproduction, there is no system ... how can capitalism work w/o a working class?
