What kind of a world are we heading for in the coming years?
It’s the demography, stupid, an article by Mark Steyn at The New Criterion, has a sobering analysis of what human populations will look like down the road, given the current birthrates around the globe.
Steyn’s opening salvo is a blockbuster:
“Most people reading this have strong stomachs, so let me lay it out as baldly as I can: Much of what we loosely call the western world will not survive this century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most western European countries.”
Read that article here.
We do not agree with all of Steyn’s conclusions, but we definitely think that he has identified some major problems which will face the world in coming years.
Especially the demographic situation in Europe is a cause for considerable concern.
Read Steyn to find out why.
