Our Real Existential Crisis—DEMOGRAPHIC Extinction

Our Real Existential Crisis—DEMOGRAPHIC Extinction, by Pat Buchanan.

If Western elites were asked to name the greatest crisis facing mankind, climate change would win in a walk. …

For many First World countries, there are more compelling concerns. High among them is population decline, and, if birth rates do not rise, the near-extinction of many Western peoples by this century’s end.

Consider. The number of births in Japan fell in 2019 to a level unseen since 1874, around 900,000. But there were 1.4 million deaths for a net loss of 512,000 Japanese. An even larger loss in Japan’s population is expected this year. …

South Korea has an even lower birth rate, and its population is expected to start diminishing this year.

But it is Eastern Europe where the population crisis is most advanced.

At the end of the Cold War, Bulgaria had 9 million people. By 2017, that had fallen to 7.1 million. In 2050, Bulgaria’s population is estimated at 5.4 million—a loss of 40% to death and migration since Bulgaria won its freedom from the Soviet Empire.

By 2050, Ukraine and Poland are each projected to lose another 6 million people, and Hungary will lose 1.5 million. …

U.N. demographers project Russia’s population may fall from 145 million today to 121 million by 2050. Such losses rival those that Russia suffered under Lenin, Stalin and World War II. …

The tribes of Europe, the peoples of almost every country of the Old Continent, are visibly aging, shrinking and dying. ….

Outside of Muslim Albania, no European nation is producing enough babies to replace its population.

Focusing the public on the non-problem of climate is a great distraction, while the globalists remodel the world into a neo-fuedal order that suits them just fine.
