Douglas Murray’s book, The Strange Death of Europe, is an international bestseller, about the death of Europe, happening right before our eyes.
“The Strange Death of Europe is the internationally bestselling account of a continent and a culture caught in the act of suicide, now updated with new material taking in developments since it was first published to huge acclaim. These include rapid changes in the dynamics of global politics, world leadership and terror attacks across Europe.
Douglas Murray travels across Europe to examine first-hand how mass immigration, cultivated self-distrust and delusion have contributed to a continent in the grips of its own demise. From the shores of Lampedusa to migrant camps in Greece, from Cologne to London, he looks critically at the factors that have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their alteration as a society. Murray’s “tremendous and shattering” book (The Times) addresses the disappointing failures of multiculturalism, Angela Merkel’s U-turn on migration, the lack of repatriation and the Western fixation on guilt, uncovering the malaise at the very heart of the European culture. His conclusion is bleak, but the predictions not irrevocable. As Murray argues, this may be our last chance to change the outcome, before it’s too late.”
We need new ideas to address the unique problems of our times. Here is one: First, how do we stop the collapse of the European population? Nothing else works, if we don’t do that.
Here’s how to do that: One solution to this problem, I call “The Israeli Solution”…it’s working in Israel. If you look at all the advanced nations of any race…. Japan, China, Korea, Europe, the United States, Israel…only Israel has a growing local born population. The Jews continue to have so many children, that the population of Israel is growing. They do this, despite the fact that most Israeli women have very few children…think about that…
How do they achieve this miracle? It’s no miracle: The small Orthodox Jewish population has large families. Most have families of 10. Despite being a tiny part of the population, Orthodox Jews have so many children, that the Israeli birthrate is 3.1 children per women.
Remember 2.1 is replacement level, so their population of Jewish people, is actually growing. Israel is the only advanced nation to pull this off. We could do the same in Europe and America and Japan and Korea and China. Here’s a fact feminists don’t like: Some women want a lot of children. Most women want one or two. But some want a lot. Those women who want a lot of children, we should let them…and we should financially help and encourage women to do this: have lots of kids.
But why should we financially support that? Because: It makes economic sense to do so. The financial reward, the economic reward, for society financially helping women who want a lot of kids, is tremendous for society, for the economy, if we do it right.
Let’s use an example: There is a German girl, Ingrid, who is in medical school. A bright, healthy young athletic women. She could complete her degree, and by the time she is finished, she would be nearly 30, and would be lucky to have one child…..female fertility slows down past 30, and drops like a rock, after 35.
But suppose she wanted 5 kids, instead of becoming a doctor herself. She meets a guy at university, let’s call John, and the government has a program that, if she has 5 children, spends 20 years raising them, she has a full government pension and a house to raise her children in.
Is this a good deal for society or is it just welfare for the well off? It’s a good deal for society.
Here’s why: John is an engineer at university and is a bright guy himself. Intelligence is largely hereditary. If John and Ingrid have 5 kids, they will likely all be very bright, and professionals. There is tremendous economic future value created by Ingrid by having 5 children. She contributes to the future economy even more than she would, as a doctor. Instead, 2 or 3 of her kids are likely to be doctors themselves, and the others engineers or accountants or some such thing.
The life earnings of 5 future professionals would be very high, if you put a number on it.
But of course, this only works if we financially encourage the best and brightest women, to have large families. If we encourage the lower classes to have children, as we are doing now, with too much welfare, we end up with an Idiocracy…and we are well on the way, to that, now.
And it only works if Ingrid has lots of kids. At least 5. The woman who has one or two children, she barely keeps the population going, since replacement level is 2.1 children per woman. The woman who has 3 kids grows the economy and the population. The woman who has 4 kids contributes even more. And 5 kids may be the magic number.
Modern women in advanced countries, from Hong Kong to Seoul to London, to Perth to San Fransisco have a choice. They can have a career and education and freedom, instead of family, as was the norm through all of evolution, as females evolved to bear human young. I don’t really want to take away that modern freedom that technology and science has given them.
But the truth is, females evolved to bear young in their 20s, or societies collapse and go extinct pretty quick. With the invention of birth control, the modern world and education for women, the population is in free fall and Europeans will be quickly extinct, if we don’t course correct, real soon. …it’s either this, or get rid of democracy and take women’s vote away.
Elon Musk says the same thing about the future demographic collapse of advanced technological civilization, from Japan to Korea to France or Canada, the trend is more or less the same in all advanced countries, and Elon is even more pessimistic that I am, about where this is going. He says that if trends continue as they are, advanced technological society will eventually collapse.
He points out that the math, the statistics all say the same thing: The more money a woman has, the fewer children she has. The more education a woman has, the fewer children she has. And this means, long term, a dumbing down of the population. It’s not only population collapse, it’s more dumb people, fewer smart people among the population…as well as wave after wave of immigration from the Third World.
It used to be a genetic advantage for a woman to be intelligent. Not any more. If she is intelligent, she now leaves very few offspring, often none…because again, modern life gives all kinds of incentives and signals for intelligent women to avoid breeding. In Victorian times, women who would today be doctors and lawyers, they had families of 6 or 8…and many fine young sons who became professionals. Those men created the 20th Century.
We reversed that with feminism and birth control and modern education for women and all the smart women don’t breed much at all. If you ever want to see a quiet room, go find a birthday party for all the young children of women who are doctors.
The trouble is, feminist theory is clueless about female biology and the role it plays in keeping civilizations stable. Feminist theory is based on narcissistic navel gazing, materialism and hedonism…..all things we must reject, if we are to survive. Religions know this implicitly and the ones who go back to their Patriarchal roots will survive and dominate the future. Islam has figured this out and is deeply Patriarchal. Christianity has been heavily feminized so it is dying. Religion evolved as a social stabilizing mechanism, to ensure the future, based on natural biology and giving humans meaning in their lives. Truth is, women evolved to have children when they are young, and feminism is built on the supposition that women can ignore biology and during their fertile years have careers and education, and all will be fine in their world. This notion is the height of suicidal foolishness. Third Wave Feminism is third stage cancer….at stage four, we die….and if we don’t go into anti-feminist chemo pretty quick, we are done. Feminist idiocy about biology alone will end civilization and democracy by crashing advanced technological civilization, if we don’t fix it, quick. Elon is right. If we implement some variation of the Israeli Solution, we can have our cake and eat it too. Women can be free to pursue careers if they want to. And those women who want to be Mothers, can do so. And we don’t have to collapse and go extinct. We can even maybe, perhaps, maybe if we do it right and are not bloody fools, maybe even keep our democracy and be the envy of the world.
