Third Child Policy: Italian Populists Propose Giving Free Land to Families

Third Child Policy: Italian Populists Propose Giving Free Land to Families, by Victoria Friedman.

Italy’s populist government has joined Hungary in funding measures to naturally maintain its population without mass migration by proposing giving parents farmland if they are expecting their third child. …

The proposal rejects the received knowledge of progressive liberal northern European Union nations which state that the only way to stop the so-called demographic time bomb and maintain pensions payments is by institutionalising mass migration — a concept condemned as a Ponzi Scheme, as migrants themselves will grow old and need social care, not to mention the initial financial costs for social care for new arrivals and the social costs of rising crime and terror. …

In May, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán pledged to make demography his “first priority” by supporting Hungarian families to grow in a Western world where they are on the decline.
