The Amish population is exploding. While much of the West is in severe demographic decline, there are some communities in the West that are thriving and expanding, demographically. The Mormons in Utah, the Haredim in Israel, the Amish in America, all have population booms. What is behind this? What can we learn from them, about what works in terms of demographic survival? What works for demographic survival? Why does it work?
The Amish have more than doubled in population, since 1989. There were barely a hundred thousand Amish in 1989. Today there are over a quarter million. By 2050 there will be well over a million. And by the end of next century, Amish are projected to number, upwards of 300 million. The Amish have on average between 4-7 children, depending on whose numbers you use.
The Amish, like the Mormons and Haredim, are Traditionalists/Conservatives. The birth rate in general in advanced countries, is highest among the religious, the conservative, the more traditional people. These traditionalists are the future and will replace existing secular populations in both Europe and North America.
Demographers have found that conservative religionists all over the world are generally reproducing at fertility rates that are significantly higher than their secular globalist counter-parts. Secular women in the United States have a fertility rate of 1.5 children per couple, which is well below the population replacement level of 2.1 children per couple. Conservative Christians are having anywhere between 2.5 and 3.0 children on average, per couple. Given a few decades, this dramatically changes the demographic nature of America.
Why is this happening?
A simplified view of what works in demographic survival, boiled down to 18 Amish Principles.
The 18 Amish Principles:
1-Be a Patriarchy, have men run things. The Bible is based on Patriarchy, not feminism, not Matriarchy. All groups that survived in the past, were Patriarchies. Matriarchies have almost no evolutionary value. Feminists are quite right when they say that every society in the human past was dominated by men. What they fail to get right, is why this is. They see it as a conspiracy of men, against women. I think that feminist view is rubbish. Patriarchies survived in the past because they had evolutionary advantages over Matriarchies, which almost invariably die off.
2-Take away TV …it is a moral sewer run by the left. Successful groups minimize bad influence, mutant influences that lead them astray. Females are influenced by their moral environment around them. Social media and women working in modern society have brought about disastrous mating patterns, because modern life works against evolutionary norms:
3-Bring back religion…religious people in general, have more kids. Religion is obviously an evolutionary adaptation for social organization, which emphasized family life, maximizing human pair bonding and the raising of children.
4-Emphasize family…this works for Amish, it works for religious Jews, it works for Mormons, all of whom have large families. Modern life and feminism both emphasize female independence and avoiding being a Mother, so it should come as no surprise that the demographics of the West are imploding.
5-Provide young women with self-contained communities that provide women with a social life, other women around to keep her company, to raise her children. That’s how early Christianity was organized, around common communities shut off from bad influences. It’s how humans evolved: In small groups, looking after everyone’s basic needs, especially the needs of young women, who keep the tribe flourishing, genetically. In terms of social organization, the Amish, the Mormons, the Haredim, are all closest to our evolutionary norms of what works in human survival, so it is no wonder they are flourishing. They are doing what nature wants: Protect women and provide them with their material needs. Early Christians looked after their women….and demographically flourished, out-competing other European religious groups, replacing them. They did so because early Christians operated closer to the norms of evolution. The Amish do the same, so do Mormons to some degree, so do Haredim, who are ultra-Orthodox Jews with high fertility rates.
6-Men concentrate on working, women concentrate on children. The Amish are organized this way, as are all other demographically successful groups that wish to survive evolution. This fits in with natural selection and evolution: Women evolved to have families when they are young. That should be their primary focus, not working at jobs. There is a strong sexual division of labor in evolutionarily successful groups. Every human group in history that has survived, has displayed the same basic pattern of sexual division of labor, between the male and female.
One of the reasons this is a successful pattern is females evolved as hyper-gamous: They mate with males who are minimally equal to them, but preferably above them socially. By having women focus on child care when the women are young, this takes the women out of economic competition with men. When women compete with men for social and economic dominance, as they do now, human mating dries up. Right now in America, women under thirty five earn more money than men under thirty five. Women are replacing men in the social and economic dominance hierarchy. That’s how feminism organized society. It should come as no surprise to us that, under these conditions, marriage is at an all time historical low, the birth rate is at an all time historical low.
The reason is, under conditions of a unified sexual division of labor, women often out-compete men economically. This radically reduces the number of males they are attracted to, as long term mates. In this way feminism destroys the mating prospects of modern women. The solution is what has always worked in the past: Women concentrate on child birth and care in their twenties, and are looked after by men. This takes women out of economic competition with men. This sexual division of labor has been the basis of every successful evolutionary group….no exceptions. Feminism is trying to be the first human group, where women are dominant in the power hierarchy, where women don’t bother reproducing. For reasons of evolution, they will fail. My hope is they don’t destroy our civilization in the process of eventually figuring out the folly of their ways. Feminism is entirely ignorant of evolution and science.
7-Have the smartest businessmen run the community, their responsibility is to look after everyone, financially. In economics this is called “The Pareto Principle”…it means most economic gains goes to a few people who are generally the most intelligent. If the smartest men run the money, the whole community benefits and gets rich. Everyone shares in abundance. You get far, far fewer poor people if you base your social organization along these lines. The first Christians did something similar. They organized along community lines. As well as being religiously moral, the Amish are financially organized as a successful corporation. Very, very smart. In any group of a few hundred, you always find a handful of very, very capable people who are better at running things, than ordinary people, better at leadership and financial management. The smart Amish leaders help out the not-so- smart, everyone uses their God-given talents in the right way, everyone cooperates. The effect of this? The Amish are rich.
8-Set up the community finances so the women don’t have to work at jobs when they are young and fertile. Smart men with money know how to do this. This reduces financial stress for families, so couples can afford children when nature wants them to have families…when they are young.
9-Move out of cities, which are moral sewers…especially Los Angeles. Set up small, self-contained communities of no more than a couple hundred people, where local men run the community, not outsiders. Technology is moving in this direction anyhow, of machines that can locally produce pretty much anything you need. Humans evolved in small tribes of up to a couple hundred. It is where we are evolutionarily optimized for social organization. The Amish socially organize this way. It works.
This could of course, be done in cities as well, by setting up very clear walls and distinctions between ethnic and religious groups, allowing them to flourish protected by their community, within a greater city. This same Amish principle doesn’t have to be contained to farming. There is no reason that small religious clans of several hundred could not set up gated communities within cities, create their own ethnic and religious based corporations, so they compete within a capitalist economy, while maintaining their own communities as a top priority.
10-Get rid of feminism in the school curriculum. Feminism is social cancer. It is founded on scientific ignorance and malice towards men. No social structure can sustain a female population that is instructed to hate men and be ungrateful. Feminism is creeping into society, destroying it. The Amish follow the Bible. The Bible got many things right. It is the original Patriarchal manual of the Western world. Patriarchy works. Matriarchy fails. Following Patriarchal religions makes us evolutionarily more likely to survive. The Bible says men must have leadership and authority and protect women and provide for her. That is the natural order. Patriarchy is the natural order of the Universe. Not Matriarchy. Not feminism. The Amish flourish because they follow the Biblical natural order of Patriarchy, just like religious Jews and Mormons are following God’s plan.
11-Teach women to respect men. “Wives, submit to your husbands”….the Bible says.
12-Any woman who does not want to conform to community rules, are free to leave.
13-Same with men.
14-No education for young women, past grade eight.
15-Don’t let women vote. Women are the majority of the population, so if women vote, they vote for things not in the natural order. Men are supposed to lead, just like the Bible says. It’s what works in a sexually dimorphic species. Men are to lead their families, top men are to lead the community. Wives are to run the social life, the family and children. Most people are happy, when everyone follows this formula. Women have their place in the social order, and so do men. It is not a perfect pattern, but it is the pattern that works, the most often in evolution.
We gave women the vote, women are not wired to rule, we are a naturally Patriarchal species because of sexual dimorphism, but women now rule by elected proxy, because they are the majority in a democracy. They mostly vote for men who are cucks and will cater to them. These men enforce Cuck Moral Order, under which we now exist. Women are not wired to keep moral order, not wired to keep themselves in check, so they provide themselves with no consequences for their bad actions.
But for this, I don’t blame women. I blame men for this. How is it even conceivable to morally put the blame on women? They were not meant to rule, they did not evolve for it. They did not evolve for leadership and responsibility, they evolved to be looked after and be ruled. Who made the initial mistake in this? Men. Foolish men gave women the vote. That ruined everything. It ruined the natural order of things.
The moral code in the universe arises out of our evolved biology and includes natural roles for males and females. Political equality is a bad joke. It is counter to the natural world. It will fail because men and women are not equal. Voting for women is an abomination against the natural world. The moral code must be enforced by men, not women. We have failed as men by not doing this. Nature will not forgive that mistake. We men will pay for that stupidity and weakness. That’s why the West is crashing.
16-Marry young. Both men and women produce the best offspring, when both are young. This taps into naturally evolved male inclinations, for youth and beauty and fertility. Also, it is far, far easier to have children when you yourself are young. That’s what the Amish do. People should be married by nineteen. Past thirty, defects start to show up in female eggs, so women should get their tubes tied, past thirty, so they are blessed with healthy children. Sarah Palin had a child at age forty-four, it was a Down Syndrome child. That is common for older women. That’s too old to have children. By the standards of the past, thirty is pretty old for a woman to be a Mother with a newborn. Raising children is very hard work. It’s mostly for young people.
17-Young women are only attracted to young men, if those young men can provide a house and essentials to living for the woman, if she is to have children. Leaders need to set things up so young men can do this. Economic policy has to favor young people, men in particular…in order to please women, to find a mate. Young men should be able to buy houses when they are in their mid-twenties and to provide a house for a woman and her children, when she is is young. This taps into the very strong female trait of evolved hyper-gamy.
18-Plan for the long term needs of women. When they are old, women should have a house and financial security, so they don’t have to work at a job, unless they want to. Women evolved with a very heavy need for security. Since females give birth and are vulnerable to predation, they feel a very strong evolved need for security. Give them that security in a community that looks after their housing and basic financial needs.
All this would be voluntary of course. Women or men would be free to leave…or free to join, from the outside. Some women want careers and don’t want children. That’s fine. Help them leave to a new life. Let them leave the community and go have a new life elsewhere.
I am someone who believes both in evolution and in natural law and a creative God in the Universe. Religion is a search for that God. It is collective wisdom about what works in human life. Some religions are better than others, just like some scientific theories are better than others. The Amish are following God’s plan, following nature’s plan, better than almost anyone. I believe the Amish are tapping into natural law principles, sown into the fabric of the Universe, by an ever-loving God……. God is blessing them. We would be wise to learn quickly from them. The more things we do on this list, the more we move back to a Traditionalist Conservative country. This can be done very quickly, if Church leaders of different denominations get behind this.
The liberal elite, the globalist elite can be run out of power, run out of town, in short order. Liberals and progressives are aborting their children in record numbers. Let them. That sin is between them and God, they will answer for it some day. Christians should embrace Amish Principles, have large families, organize their church lives around them. Then Christians will flourish. Differential fertility trends are in favor of Christians and religious people. Counties that voted for Donald Trump had a 12% higher fertility rate than counties that voted for Hillary Clinton.
The future is not a Matriarchy. The future is not feminism. The future is Patriarchy.
Matriarchy is why we have so much chaos today. Life is a balance between order and chaos, but chaos cannot rule. There is a natural order to the universe, to which we will return. The only question is: how much violence will we need to go through, to get back to order? Order is the masculine principle. The feminine is just as important as the masculine, but is over-represented in our culture, against the design of nature. Men are naturally gyno-centric. We evolved to please women, but women did not evolve to rule over us as they are currently doing. The reasons for the natural order have biological roots in evolved male and female patterns. We must return to order.
The question is: which Patriarchy will rule? Mormons? Haredim? Amish?….or another Patriarchy?
