Hungarian women with four children or more will be exempted for life from paying income tax, the prime minister has said, unveiling plans designed to boost the number of babies being born.

It was a way of defending Hungary’s future without depending on immigration, Viktor Orban said.

He’s right to be concerned, of course. The curse of economic growth has always been falling birth rates. Coupled with unsustainable welfare policies, governments always turn to mass immigration to keep the plates spinning. Orban rejects such decadence. But he doesn’t go far enough.

No mothers should pay tax because a mother ought to be at home, raising the brood, keeping the hearth warm and cooking her husband’s dinner. It is a woman’s calling and the most important role in any civilisation. Our very survival depends on it. When we are honest and admit this to ourselves, we can see that there’s something terribly undignified in a married woman having a salaried job.
