National birthrate is everything.
- A million less births this year means a million fewer bodies to fill new jobs 20 years from now.
- A million less births this year means a million fewer taxpayers 20 years from now.
- A million less births this year means massive disparities in national demographics
- And on and on and on…
The data in this chart may go a long way in explaining the lengths to which government officials will go in pushing for immigration amnesty, the lack of action in sealing the Southern border and the massive social safety net giveaways to illegal immigrants. In a simple explanation, America needs more bodies, and we need them reproducing.
Unfortunately, an increasing number of American men (this author included) are concluding that the risks associated with marriage, let alone family building, in a culture where divorce is glamorized in media and viewed as a means of “moving up”, with a declining economy, where the future is sure to be darker as opposed to brighter, are simply not worth the grief.
According to the CIA World Factbook, globally there are 107 boys born for every 100 girls. Thus each 100 women need to bear 207 children, on average, in order to produce the 100 girls needed to replace them. (Dividing 207 children by 100 women equals 2.07, which is then rounded up.).
Thus, in order for a population to remain stable, each woman needs to produce an average of 2.1 children. This is known to demographers as the Total Fertility Rate. The population of any society with a TFR below 2.1 for any length of time will begin to shrink. America’s TFP is 1.89. Canada: 1.63. The UK: 1.98.
Japan is a perfect example of a country with a low TFR. Japan’s TFR, at 1.39, has been below replacement level since the mid-1970s, or about one generation. The population of the country is now in steep decline. And as one can easily surmise, as birth rates in a country decline, the average age of its citizens increases.
With this in mind, it should be no wonder why Japan sells more adult diapers than those used for children.
Much more can be said on this topic, but the chart should speak volumes.
