nothing new really.
except it´s more mundane & ‘industrial’ than ever.
Dr. Attiyya: The Palestinian woman’s womb is a factory for the conflict; it produces fighting children. After this fighting child is produced, he is taught: “This is your land, this is your country, you will fight for it, stand on it, and die for it.” Therefore, a very important connection exists between motherhood, land, and blood.

In ecology, r/K selection theory relates to the selection of combinations of traits in an organism that trade off between quantity and quality of offspring. The focus upon either increased quantity of offspring at the expense of individual parental investment in r-strategists, or reduced quantity of offspring with a corresponding increased parental investment in K-strategists, varies widely, seemingly to promote success in particular environments.
The terminology of r/K-selection was coined by the ecologists Robert MacArthur and E. O. Wilson based on their work on island biogeography, although the concept of the evolution of life history strategies has a longer history.

Consider the outcrop of dictatorships, only possible when moral growth is in its earliest stages [i.e. lacking], and the prevalence of infantile cults like Communism, Fascism, … Health Crazes, Occultism in nearly all its forms, religions sentimentalised to the point of practical extinction.
Consider sport, the babyish enthusiasms and rages which it excites, whole nations disturbed by disputes between boys.
Consider war, the atrocities which occur daily and leave us unmoved and hardly worried. [Which is a sign of a lack of the right mental development.]
We are children. [— Aleister Crowley, in «Liber Al Vel Legis», 1904]
[ … the Ideal of being in the “Civilization of the Mother”—yes, it itself, as it experiences and acts in the world—(indeed as a world, it as a being that)—] has a birth and a decline, [and] a purely individual finite and evanescent life. [Quite separated from mental clarity], all that is force and manliness thus assumes an obscure, wild, in fact ‘chthonic’ and ‘telluric’ nature. And if ‘telluric’ generally makes one think of seismic phenomena, this association of ideas, to a certain extent, is sound. In the vision of the world in question, virility has for its prototypes divine figures such as Poseidon, also called the ‘earthquaker’, the god of chthonic subterranean and turbulent waters, analogically linked by the ancients to forces of passionality and instinct. More generally, the age or civilisation of the Mother is ‘telluric’, with reference to a sense of destiny, of necessity, of fatal evanescence, of life mixed with death, source of wild and irrepressible impulses
