“Free stuff” is the right idea, but this obviously isn’t enough. The problem with Scandinavian countries is that they’re not truly supportive of at-home parenting. This is a knock-on effect of being at the vanguard of encouraging equality in the workplace. While this was undoubtedly a good thing, they did not take the necessary next step in encouraging both men and women to carry out the sort of domestic labor necessary to feasibly support a family with two or more children. While Scandinavian countries do have great paternal/maternal leave laws, this is simply not enough. If society creates disincentives for pursuing any kind of occupation, people will avoid them. The more environmentally-friendly alternative, of course, is to import population, but if you do this, you must have structures in place to ensure these immigrants receive the same benefits and quality of education as the non-immigrant children they are effectively replacing. Unfortunately, even in progressive regions like northern Europe, the opposing, anti-egalitarian forces of racism and xenophobia then create barriers to this happening. In any case, it will take more than Danish women in lingerie… which speaks volumes about the true magnitude of the problem.
