There’s a great article on Zerohedge that is a compilation of statements about how the entire world economy is a ponzi scheme, and it is.
The article goes on to state that because of low birth rates, western nations have been importing immigrants to keep the ponzi scheme afloat in recent decades. There are numerous stats in the article that show almost all the regions of the world are seeing declining birth rates.
Most interesting however was this;
As Thomas Sobotka, one of the authors of a 2011 study on population trends by the Vienna Institute of Demography, told the Guardian newspaper, massive cuts in social spending would only exacerbate the problem. “This may prolong the fertility impact of the recent recession well beyond its end. It could lead to a double-dip fertility decline,” he said.
This is Freakonomics type logic in action. The seemingly “illogical” thought would actually correct the problem, while the “sensible” thought is actually the one making it worse.
Cutting social spending is exactly what we need to reverse the decline in birthrates. The matter is really quite simple. Social spending takes the family out of the equation and fills the gap with the government. Without the government there to meet every need, people must really on their families. That is human history in a nutshell. People have survived and thrived because they had their families to support and care for them.
Beyond the family we have the village, beyond the village, the state, and beyond the state, the nation.
When the government takes the place of families there is no need for families, people don’t get married because they don’t need the benefits and security that it brings and consequently don’t have children. Furthermore, the government as mother and father can’t have any children obviously. And in the west the government parents don’t care if the kids are actually theirs, just so long as they can be used to prop up the system/scheme, hence the immigrants.
If the west, or any region, wants to secure a future for itself it would do good to get the hell out of the way and let the entirety of human history takes it course.
