Multiply and Be Fruitful

Denyse O'Leary reports on the implication of the fact that "it is mainly religious people who raise children, and more women in America are religious" — Why America might pull through the demographic collapse.

Noting that "in a modern welfare state where those who raise no children expect a comfortable retirement based on the labour of the children of others," the author suggests, "Raising children then becomes an act of faith with no earthly reward."

Of course, there are innumerable earthly rewards, but what would the matter to people who have made "he who dies with the most toys" their motto? So, when Fossti recently noted in his comments about the American resurgence that
    Fertility rates in aggregate in America are meaningless. What matters is who specifically is reproducing. Dysgenics reigns with respect to American reproduction rates.
he may have been off the mark.

I read in the Economist that you could put all 7 billion people, standing, on Maui.

I've also heard that if you put all 7 billion people in Texas, you'd have the same population density as Denmark.

Might you be thinking in terms of the Gross Happiness Product?

The "dysgenic" growth to which Fosti refers to the fact that average performance on IQ and SAT tests differs significantly between different pigmentation groups in the US, even when they've been in the country for generations and gone to the same classes, and that the less gifted groups are disproportionately fecund. The SWPLs are too busy discovering themselves in ashrams. SAT and such scores on average correlate very nicely with economic productivity and income.

In other words, look for America's collar to become bluer, and the GDP per capita to shrink.

Feminism in action.
