This is the result of self-hatred coming out of World War I and II and decoloniation, fed by the mentality that says abortion and birth control are a-okay.
Norway, for example, has had 400,000 legal abortions, and also has 400,000 turd world immigrants. Not a coincidence.
A wise Mexican politician once noted with respect to our southwestern border states that “to populate is to govern”. If Europeans and Americans want to govern the future, they’ll have to focus on multiplying their children, not their bank accounts.
Its amazing that believers in evolution, such as modern liberals, can fail to heed its simplest and most important lesson about the necessity of reproductive success.
You’re right. Demography is destiny. When Europe was at its peak of power, its population in proportion to that of the rest of the world was much larger than it is today. The Viking conquests which reached as far as N. America, Sicily, and Russia, were apparently connected with a population explosion in Scandinavia resulting from the perfectly natural “global warming” of the early Medieval Warming Period. Now Third World populations are booming, largely because of improved sanitation, health care, and food sources—all introduced by Western colonialists.
I think you make some good points. Dalrymple mentions guilt in Europe over Nazism and fascism. In regard to having more children, what you say is INTELLECTUALLY and logically correct. But, existentially and in reality, such an abstract fact can’t induce people to have children. It has to be the natural consequence of an environment that encourages and teaches certain values. And that no longer exists in Europe. This is just one facet of post-Christian life there.
