“Demographics is destiny” a fundamental truth of Economics and Population Dynamics.
So over on Tallblokes, Gail Combs posted an interesting link. The site is, er, a bit inflammatory in many ways, so I can’t endorse it on the basis of just one or two videos. Yet the demographics in the video are accurate.
The basic thesis is that the influx of a huge load of young men from non-German countries will demographically swamp the roughly equal sized young german male demographic. The implication is “the end of Germany”, as a country and a culture and a genetic group.
Is there reality in it?
IF present trends continue, yes. But “all things being equal” is rarely kept equal…
On that site, I ran into another video. It is even more disturbing. Both for the ideas it puts forth, and for the fact that they cite a respected body of literature in their conclusions. Yes, the cite of culture as derivative from sexually repressed cultures is from old grey beards like Frued and J.D. Unwin (1895-1936), so could be criticized as musty and out of date (and perhaps a cherry pick to match the video thesis…)
Yet it does cause a fair amount of thought, matches what I know of the biological basis of sexual behaviours and “in group” vs “out group” preferences, and echos the thesis about genes driving one type of person to Progressive and another to Conservative.
I can’t particularly endorse it, OTOH, once past the gratuitous inflammatory hype sellers puff, I can’t point at any given thing in it and say “Well, that’s quite wrong”. Mostly it makes me think. I like things that make me think. ( I don’t have to agree with the content or conclusions to like thinking about something… )
At any rate, hopefully it will lead you to think a bit too. Like it or not ;-)
