#1 But I think there is something else at work: monasticism.

The tenets of Monasticism include self-denial, selt-mortificaton, paryer and holiness. I believe the author needs to dig a bit deeper.

#2 There are two simpler explanations.

1. Babies get in the way of hedonism. If you want to be an irreligious hedonist, you therefore cannot have babies.

2. When you design a society where the apparatus of state takes over the functions of the family, nobody has any families any more.

If people wanted to join monasteries, they still could. Since they aren't doing that, the two explanations I suggested make more sense.

#3 The "educated" have been anti-baby and pushing population control for at least a century. What is going on here?

Instead they are importing illegal aliens with high-birth rates? It's not so messy/icky and doesn't get in the way of careers. It's a twofer (or threefer); you get cheap labor and expand the Donk voter base.

#4 Because, once you have children, you have to grow up.
