As we’ve read in this page, Cuba has a serious population problem. Today, 19% population is older than 60 and could go as high as 30% in less than a decade.
Like Cuba, Europe is getting old in front of our eyes, too.
At current birth rates, there won’t be any Europeans around.
“Europe needs more babies – the average continental family has a mere 1.37 children…Germany is similarly concerned – it could lose the equivalent of the population of the former East Germany within 50 years…Russia’s population is contracting at the rate of three quarters of a million a year: the resourceful Mr Putin is paying mothers to have a second child….The last thing we should be doing is bullying people to breed less.” (The cry should go up in Europe: more babies, please by Melanie McDonaghon)
Furthermore, you can not preserve your values, culture and democratic ideas if you do not “seed the future” with your own people.
We inherited progressive values from our parents and ancestors who gave us life. Don’t we have a responsibility to bring life into the world and preserve our culture?
On birth rates, the US is holding its own. Canada and much of the West is not!
Furthermore, at current birth rates, Europe can’t finance its massive welfare state! Who is going to care for the old if there are no young people to work, pay taxes and defend a way of life?
What’s behind the huge drop in birth rates? Has Europe lost its soul? Did it walk away from its Judeo-Christian heritage and replaced it with mindless secularism?
I don’t know the answer to those profound questions.
I can only say this: Wake up Europe or they won’t be any Europe in 50
