As the U.N.’s multi-decade long propaganda effort designed to create global fear about population explosion has it’s desired effect to curtail population growth worldwide we see some undesirable effects coming to surface. Of course one problem with a falling population growth rate is that this reduced growth also creates long term economic recessions/depressions.
A couple of years ago on a trip to China I discovered that it was bad form in casual conversation to ask, “How many brothers and sisters do you have?” That would be a common question in the West when trying to get to know someone and their family. In China, with its “one child policy” having been in effect for many years now, the usually embarrassed answer from the young is almost always, “I don’t have any brothers and sisters.” This ongoing state imposed destruction of the Chinese population will derail its growth and power in the years ahead. The Chinese population is aging rapidly. It’s birthrate is ~30% below what it needs to be to replace itself. Its dynamic growth will soon begin to slow as its population ages. It has been reported that abortion in China now accounts for over 400,000,000 slaughtered children (see:http://townhall.com/tipsheet/danieldoherty/2011/09/20/one-child_policy_cost_china_nearly_400_million_people and visit this site: http://www.allgirlsallowed.org/forced-abortion-statistics). As for women’s rights in China we see that a disproportionate number of female babies are killed off in this abortion genocide.

Europe has also embraced the Malthusian lies from the U.N. and the many NGOs that work in concert with it (see: https://www.google.com/search?q=malthusian+theory&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a). Europe’s birthrate has continued to fall. This, along with a growth in statism and socialism is destroying the European economy.
Japan has embraced the idea of population reduction perhaps better than any other country. It’s falling population growth has helped it to move into a state of perpetual economic depression. See: http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/30/world/asia/japan-population-decline/index.html
The movie “Demographic Winter” helps outline the danger of the world’s race towards lower and lower fertility rates (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZeyYIsGdAA). It’s time to question the idea that there are too many people.
One reason that demand for real estate is going down worldwide is because the birthrate is falling. China’s real estate bubble is already in the process of popping. Their state run malinvestment in more and more cities for a falling population is no longer the best kept secret. Whole cities have been built with the idea that if you build it they will come. But, with a falling population, they have not come.

The fanatical extremist greens tell us there are too many people who have too much demand for products and use too much energy. They worry about carbon footprints. They tell us we must limit the number of children we have and even espouse abortion. They worry about the limits of this planet. Here’s a clever website that points out the folly of their concerns:http://www.simplyshrug.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=63:the-overpopulation-myth&catid=31:general&Itemid=50%29.
Ben J. Wattenberg’s enlightening book, “The Birth Dearth”, first called the problem of falling birth rates to the attention of the world. Socialists, central planners, and green extremists have done all they can to defame Wattenberg and to belittle his far seeing book. His predictions continue to play out as the global birth dearth unfolds. The terrible consequences of a falling population are already being felt as the world’s economies contract and we drop into a perpetual economic depression. Already the gray population is growing faster than replacements are being born to support it. Social security is in trouble in the U.S. We see retirement ages being pushed back, and Medicare benefits being cut by the Obama administration. This rationing and denial of benefits is likely to escalate as the population ages. Wattenberg was prescient in his predictions. You may wish to explore his other book (found here: http://www.amazon.com/Fewer-Demography-Depopulation-Shape-Future/dp/1566636736/ref=pd_sim_sbs_b_1) called “Fewer: How the New Demography of Depopulation Will Shape Our Future.”
Of course there are those who still have babies, the Muslims are one such group. Perhaps the world’s future population will be a Muslim population. Americans and others need to consider whether or not they want to continue to pursue the course suggested by the “greens” of an ever lower birth rate. Perhaps we should consider again the commandment to multiply and replenish the earth.
