>From Mark Steyn, via Malone Vandam:

…What’s happening in the developed world today isn’t so very hard to understand: The 20th-century Bismarckian welfare state has run out of people to stick it to. In America, the feckless, insatiable boobs in Washington, Sacramento, Albany, and elsewhere are screwing over our kids and grandkids. In Europe, they’ve reached the next stage in social-democratic evolution: There are no kids or grandkids to screw over. The United States has a fertility rate of around 2.1 — or just over two kids per couple. Greece has a fertility rate of about 1.3: Ten grandparents have six kids have four grandkids — ie, the family tree is upside down. Demographers call 1.3 “lowest-low” fertility — the point from which no society has ever recovered. And, compared to Spain and Italy, Greece has the least worst fertility rate in Mediterranean Europe….


Read it all.

Then go read Steyn’s America Alone, if you haven’t already.

Do you understand yet?

  3. >I wonder why he didn't mention The Republican parties complicit nature in all of this? In fact, I'll go one further than that. It IS the fault of the Republicans. They knew better, there should have been fist fights in the aisles, but no, there was only "I'll scratch your back, if you'll scratch mine". It was an orgy of political favors. They were swapping bills, like wives, across the heated aisles of political fornication.Its a shame that such talented authors are stuck in the left-right paradigm – unable to express an obvious truth.
