The Holy Book Of Universal Truths, K. U. P.

In the fall of 2011 I read David P. Goldman’s provocative book, How Civilizations Die: (And Why Islam Is Dying Too). The premise behind the book is that because of falling birthrates, world population will reach its peak in the middle of the twenty-first century, and then go into a long decline after that. For Europe, Russia and Japan, the decline has already begun; within a few decades, the Islamic nations will also level off, and then their communities will shrink even faster. In fact, according to Goldman’s view, the two modern nations with the healthiest birthrate are the United States and Israel, so the future is for them, if they can survive the present.
Goldman writes a column using the name of Spengler, after the nineteenth-century historian and all-around pessimist. To spice up his book, he inserts one of his rules of history from time to time, what he calls “Spengler’s Universal Laws.” Now when I wrote my own theory of history, I finished by listing the ten most important trends of world history. Spengler’s laws turned out to be very compatible with what I believe, so for your benefit, here they all are in one place:

    Spengler’s Universal Law #14: Stick around long enough, and your civilization will turn into a theme park.

    yep. Deviancy Park. Freak show of ultimate proportions. Sodom and Gomorrah 2.0

    the only reason America has a healthy birthrate is because of the high rate of birth among Hispanics. The Caucasian birthrate is unlikely to recover

      Many “Hispanics” are more Caucasian than some “whites” I know. Mexico, for one, has been populated with Spanish, French, Dutch, German, and whatever else for 300 years. Just because Meskins speak Spanish doesn’t mean they are some low level Indian Maria.

      I have been married to two “Mexican” women and they are as fine a people as the Italian or English or Chech I also married. “The Issue” should be more about the culture and politics that the particular bloodlines. Except for my Italian wife (from CA) all the rest were free-market capitalists or conservatives and proud of it.

  3. hope it is true, but don’t see it unless plagues hit overcrowded under civilized countries.

    Birthrate would be higher in the US if abortion was outlawed. Just saying.

    • Chet says:

      You are correct! And within about five years we would be knee-deep in niglets. Look at “who” is getting most of the abortions. Did you know that blacks get paid to have abortions?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
