...easy there hardassThe short answer is "we shouldn't", too many people already.
Oh please. You are still pretty much free to do whatever you want as long as you respect the rights of those around you. The US is still a free society.
The solution is to kill your grandparents, not to avoid having children.
Good, they're are an effective deterrent to all out war.
So unionize and vote your interests. The rich don't just give it away.
The housing market is rebalancing with housing prices falling to come closer to median income affordability. Median income is stagnant as the rich keep the benefits of improved worker productivity to themselves. Again, workers have to fight for what they want.
College financing has become a scam. Legislatures have abandoned the public universities to the loan sharks. The universities have abandoned their missions to seek enrichment for their administrators and faculty at the expense of the students. Until voters decide to do something about it, the system will continue to bloat until it fails.
Protectionism worked. It just didn't work for the right people. With strong unions pushing politicians to maintain tariffs Americans enjoyed better wages. Once the workers forgot how they got the benefits they did and allowed the unions to fade the rich bought up the politicians and we got international labor arbitrage and a death spiral for American wages.
Don't cry. Organize!
The rich stole the American dream and the workers helped them do it. Vote your interests, not your fears, and certainly not your hatreds.
