For decades, US entertainment industry and the mainstream media have been portraying marriage as the time 'when your fun is over' and they have been encouraging young adults to put off marriage for as long as possible. So now the marriage rate in the United States is at a record low and the average age for a first marriage is at a record high. Meanwhile, the entertainment industry and the mainstream media have been heavily promoting the philosophy that having fewer children is better, and they have been teaching young people that abortion is a really good option if an unwanted pregnancy comes along.

This philosophy is taken even further in a new Time Magazine article. The article is entitled "The Childfree Life: When having it all means not having children", and it openly promotes a 'childless lifestyle' as the path to the good life for young US couples.

The article points out that the average cost of raising a child born in 2011 to adulthood will be approximately $234,900, and it suggests that women should think long and hard before making such a commitment.

Well, what is a woman to do if she gets pregnant and she decides that raising that child will ruin her life?

According to the entertainment industry and the mainstream media, abortion is a very simple answer to that problem.

In America today, the vast majority of abortions are done for the sake of convenience. Abortion is essentially a human sacrifice to our own selfishness, and there are millions upon millions of Americans that will go to any lengths to justify the murder of their own children.

In fact, it has gotten so bad that now many liberal thinkers are even postulating that life may not even begin at birth unless parents decide that it does.

Indeed, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry thinks she has the answer to the ages old question of just when life begins. Her answer: life begins "whenever parents decide it does".

So, in modern-day America, young men and young women are both taught that they need to put off marriage until their educations are done and their careers have started. Subsequently, instead of entering into committed relationships at a young age like previous generations did, our young people are being encouraged to embrace “the hookup culture”. 

In this type of environment, anyone that embraces the “old ways” is considered to be abnormal.

As a result, the entire American society is rapidly rejecting traditional values regarding marriage, sex and family. Barack Obama recently even nominated someone for a federal judge position who believes that abstinence education is “unconstitutional“.

What is more, such 'national obsession with selfishness' leads to a profound decrease in US population growth.  For the moment, America has already fallen below replacement rate, with a population growth rate of 0.9% and falling, insufficient for continuity, which in turn affects the possibilities for economic growth.
