‪Fertility rate: ‘Jaw-dropping’ global crash in children being born (BBC)

Clearly religion gave legitimation to suffering in the past, and in its absence people are increasingly concerned about why children should be born to suffer.

Even though wealth has increased globally (let’s leave the question of distribution for now), and we are living longer, data also shows that we are less fulfilled and unhappier. Scholars even argue that we now suffer from poverty of aspiration.

A more religious society is definitely not the answer because it justified inequality and strengthened most of the social norms like patriarchy, homophobia, racism etc., that we are currently contending with.

Can gainful work provide new meaning and a heightened sense of purpose? Isn’t it time we rethink the nature and outputs of work?
