Population Control and the Decline of the West

Ken Connor of the Center for a Just Society in a post here on Dakota Voice looks at the “Green” movement and just what so-called environmentalists envision for America and the world.  Having identified humans as the single greatest threat to the earth (actually the only threat) they desire to limit population growth as well as ensure that we senior citizens depart in a timely manner so as to reduce our carbon footprint in the interests of those that are younger. 

Connor asks “If Americans stop having children in the name of going “green,” who will sustain our society as it ages?”  This is an important question, to be sure, but there is an even bigger issue:  What about the rest of the world?  Especially the third world and Muslim populations?  Demographics indicate that these populations are growing exponentially while that of America, Europe and Japan is in decline, or at best barely stable.  The birth rate of Muslims in Europe is 8.1, compared to less than 2 in most western countries.  If environmentalists succeed in their efforts to reduce the population of the western world even more, what will become of the cultures that arose from the teachings of Christ to become the great liberal western civilization?

In this video we are told of some startling statistics that should be of concern to all who value the principles of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”  The world of our children and grandchildren will certainly look much different than the world that most of us have grown up in.

Mark Steyn in his book America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It makes a compelling case that the United States is the only western nation that still has the capacity to resist the profound changes already well established in many European countries.  We have the strength but do we have the will to fight for our way of life?  Time will tell.
