Why are only children so demonized, even hated by the sibling society and/or culture?

Despite only children comprising now 20% of the population and the increase of 1-child families, there are those who view only children as spoiled, self-indulgent, selfish, & unable to get along w/others. Many people still hold on to atavistic concepts about only children when such outdated stereotypes are far from the truth. Only children are the most ambitious, creative, independent, & resourceful of all birth orders.
