Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 374 -- Civilization & Replacement.
Too Rich For Kids-
Among OECD countries, nearly every single one has a fertility rate below the replacement rate:
What will become of these countries? Will they begin to give incentives to attract more immigrants from the developing world, just to maintain the same population levels? If so, what becomes of their cultures, their languages, their economies, their laws, and so on?
If they don't let in droves of 3rd world immigrants, will they merely languish in population? What happens to their pyramid scheme entitlement programs? What happens to a society with plenty of octogenarians and very few whippersnappers? Who defends their countries, militarily? What happens to their schools and their industries?
For much of the OECD, it's a future filled with demographic dilemmas.

Perhaps the Czechs, Poles, and Spaniards, et al will let in the Mexicans and other Latin American job seekers.

Looks like the cure is more love making.
I can think of worse cures.

There are much bigger problems for the world than Mexico is for us. We get our immigrants but the speak one (for the most part) common language and have a culture that is much closer aligned to ours--namely they are primarily Christian (Catholic) and share similar views of the family and world. Admitted, these folks are often uneducated, but at least they share a culture that is a similar fit to ours.
Contrast that with where immigrants to Europe come from--North Africa and the Middle East. These folks don't speak a common language, have no desire to learn the language, and are hell bent on destroying their host country--and by destroying, I mean either converting or killing the folks that inhabit the countries they are trying to get into.
The western world is being overrun by folks from developing countries because we need workers and we are not having enough kids to sustain our own economies and provide services for all the folks that no longer work because they are entitlements. So we invite in these folks that lack education to do our menial jobs, and in Europe this only builds their hatred for the West.
I will take all the Mexicans that want to live in the US that want to come here if the other option is having to take in folks that want Shari'ah law implemented as it has been in Canada, Germany, and France. We have got it easy. But as birth rates go down and we end up with more and more retirees and lower birth rates like Europe has, the problem will only worsen.
