…are the LUUUUCKIEST people. Oh. Sorry. Got carried away. That happens sometimes when you’re a natalfascist who wants to enforce the six-child rule on the enslaved women of AmeriKKKa.
The reality of the coming demographic collapse of the major developed economies is a settled issue. And this isn’t just about whites. India and most of South America are now where the US was thirty years ago. Very soon they will be below replacement as well. I could slather the blog with seven paragraphs of total fertility rates and negative rates of natural increase, but there’s not a lot to be gained, because the people who are still insisting that there is a global overpopulation problem are immune to facts.
The issue of per capita resource use (I guess it’s trendy to call it footprint now?) is just another diversion. Suppose you’d told a resident of New York City circa 1880 that in 100 years his city would hold about four times more people than it did currently. He probably would have wondered how on earth the resource base could bear such a load. Where they would put all the horse manure and how on earth they could build enough five-story buildings to hold all those people? Is there any reason to believe we’re any more prescient about the future than the poor schlub who couldn’t foresee the internal combustion engine and the hydraulic passenger elevator?
Liberals used to be optimistic about the future and conservatives used to be the fuddy-duddies who moaned about the good old days and couldn’t adapt to change. Now it’s the people like me who see every new human as a new creative force, born into the world with two hands and a brain, and people like Tlaloc who look at a new human as just another mouth, if not actually a useless eater.
