Western Civilisation Relentlessly Disappearing

Despite the denial of the disinformed, demographics is destiny. Demographic decline will lead to war. Civil wars, wars of ethnic secession and insurrection, wars of conquest from within and without. Crucial resources that are already scarce due to political and economic mismanagement will become almost unobtainable.

A new dark ages is a virtual inevitability, if the western world does not wake up to its accelerating decline due to debt and demography.

The graph that overlayed Japan population and the Nikkei was particularly telling. What is a good source for more information? For instance, Eastern Europe and Japan are more advanced than the US in the population decline according to the vid. The CIA World Factbook map http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0a/Median_age.png shows Canada, Western Europe and Japan as having the oldest populations.

I would like to understand current hypotheses about what precipitates lower birth rate from a sociological perspective. What is the factor that kicks this in motion, how does it stay in the mass nation psychology, where does it originate from (external/internal). Fascinating subject - thanks!

My concern is not only paying for the entitlements as the older groups retires but the fact that the minority will become the majority.

In some regions of the USofA we are already the minority.

Sojka: The video clip above is taken from a longer documentary.
Phillip Longman has written a lot of material on this topic.
Mark Steyn connects the demographic decline of Europe with the expansion of radical jihadism within a growing European Islamic population.

George: When demographic substitution takes place, you must ask if the newcomers are competent. Can they maintain and improve the infrastructure? Will they support the rule of law and constitutional protections of individuals?

Immigration has been good for the US over the past centuries, and some high quality immigrants continue to come to the US. But current political leaders have weakened the southern borders of the US, allowing easy access for criminals and illegals of every variety.

The US needs to distinguish between high quality immigrants and illegals.
