'Falling birth rates could see the end of our civilisation'
Leicester Mercury ^ | Leicester Mercury

Posted on 04/23/2013 4:46:34 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

The notion of population growth as a threat to our future as a species is totally false.

In fact we are heading in a different direction.

The birth rates keeps on falling far below the 2.1 live births per woman required to maintain population equilibrium.

In Germany, the birth rate has sunk to just 1.36, in Spain 1.48, Italy 1.4, Holland and Belgium, 1.8.

FR has been ahead on this for years.

Why else would the elites be obsessed with multiculturalism and open borders?

Because if they didn’t Europe would have imploded a long time ago as their idiotic policies were revealed for what they were.

The genetic losses suffered in Europe and Japan between 1914-1945 can never be replaced. The dead cannot procreate. Combine those losses with modern birth control technology and widespread abortion, and it is easy to see that Western Culture if not doomed will be very hard pressed to prosper. The future belongs to the fertile.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but wound’t it be more appropriate to say “Falling non-Muslim birth rates could see the end of our western civilization?”

Also, don’t AGW alarmists have to take into account that falling birthrate means that PC AGW is less of a concern than it was?

Yeah, I thought it was already too late. Unless someone figures out how to sterilize all the "friends of M" for the next 100 years.

They teach this in economics, as the economy contracts, less babies are born due to not being able to afford it.

Simple cyclical stuff, once the RATS are removed from office (hopefully in 2016) we should start to turn things around.

We may see a correction as the feminist wave is replaced by the women who chose to have families. Germans saw 30% of their college educated women never have children. In the US, it is around 20%. White TFR in the US is about 1.8-1.9. If the next generation doesn’t have that 1/5 that is childless by choice, the TFR returns to 2.0 to 2.1.

The birth rate has been falling for thirty years, more or less around the world. The real economic fact is that as prosperity rises the birth rate falls. Check the facts of reality and ditch whatever idiot taught you economics.

This is why we can’t allow the 8 gangstas and little Dick Trumka to shove “immigration reform” down our throats. If the illegals stop having “anchor babies”, civilization is through.

If Christians would do what God said, “Multiply and replenish the earth,”, the Lord Jesus could fix our civilization very quickly.

No, it’s the murder of the unborn that’s killing civilization. What’s the count just here in the US since Roe vs. Wade? 54,559,615 ... and that’s just the reported abortions.

AMNESTY TWO ISSUES NEVER TOUCHED

ACTIVE FR’S IF YOU SEE ANY CREDITABLE REPORTS OF PROBLEMS AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE HAVING WHILE LIVING IN MEXICO PLEASE POST THEM.....

(1) When is the treatment of American citizens in Mexico and their rights vs US treatment of Mexicans going to be an issue when we discuss amnesty ?

This is a question: Should Mexican citizens when in the US be given the same rights American citizens are given while in Mexico? This has yet to appear on any US legislator’s questionaire from either chamber....ASK YOUR FEDERAL LEGISLATORS WHY IT HASN’T

(2) What makes it necessary for US to subjugate our sovereignty because of available cheap labor ? While the Godless Demo-Coms socialists encourage population control and abortion . Then complain the US is not reproducing enough citizens to replace its aging retiring workforce. But rely on (as the Romans did) on foreigners (barbarians) .to keep their welfare ponzie schemes supplied with tax money and keep the system working..

Ever hear of reciprocal aggrements ? These are arranged to protect the rights of American citizens working or living in other countries.

Why is it when it comes to citizens of other countries we are required to offer them the same privledges as we do to US citizens? But when it comes to US citizens who get in trouble or attempt to do business in other countries they do not get the same treatment their citizens get.

Americans can’t own coast land in Mexico. And get no title to it elsewhere. If they run out of cash they’ll get unceremoniously sent back or put in jail untill some relative comes up with the “fresh”. That’s just for starters as for granting them voting privledges yea let’s give Mexican citizens that right when American citizens vote in their elections .

Christians are having babies, and at a huge rate, all over the world. Most of it is under the radar and not really noticed, which is why the Democrat party is trying so hard to get a lot of Hispanics into citizenship. Their demographic is aging and dying off.

Muslim birth rates are badly skewed in that the death rate of those same infants is excessively high, many do not make it to childhood or adulthood.

China is also reaching a demographic nightmare without noticing that at least 10% of their peasantry has become Christian and is flying under the radar with their children.

It’s called cultural suicide. When people feel it’s ‘not their world’ they quit having children.

Germany as a country of ‘Germans’ won’t exist in 200 years. The land will still be there - and the cities - well most of them - and they’ll have the same old names, but the people will be Muslim... and the culture will be Muslim.

Not defending our civilization would end our civilization. That’s the lesson of history.

Demography is destiny. By supporting those without an appreciation of our basic culture we are comitting cultural suicide. Sad, but true.
