So you have two things going on at the same time. One, people in Greece just stopped having children. Just stopped. Why? It clearly has something to do with losing faith. Losing faith in God, their country, love, family. It’s a total disaster.

It’s gotten so bad that the prospect of population collapse in Greece is a “ticking time bomb” and a “national threat” according to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Let’s do some charts. Charts are fun and I found it at the People’s Voice TV.

Both of those numbers are going the wrong way.

People have stopped being fruitful and multiplying and then Covid and now the mysterious excess deaths are occurring but nobody seems all that concerned.

To keep your population stable, your fertility rate must be 2.1. That essentially means for every couple having a child they should have 2 children to replace them. Makes sense, right?. In the U.S., we’ve already fallen well below the replacement rate. We’re at 1.6. Greece is at 1.3. Other countries including China are way below even that.

I don’t think any country can be considered healthy that is failing to reproduce. It is a renunciation of life. It screams that we no longer have faith in the future or in our idea of family. It seems counterintuitive that wealth seems to decrease the amount of children one has. In fact, the population decline is just about everywhere except Africa. Even the Middle East is seeing a fertility decline. They’re still above the replacement rate but the numbers are going down quickly. But Africa seems immune…for now.

It seems that wealth is an engine of decline, ironically. Who knew? Well, God did. Many in wealthy countries seem to care about wealth more than God. The thing is…God is infinite. So when we replace God with wealth in our hearts and minds, no amount of wealth can fill that God shaped hole. It’s infinite. So you will never be happy, no matter how much money you earn.

I’ve long said that the only thing that can save America and western civilization is a return to Christianity. Isn’t it funny that so many of our priests here in America are coming from Africa? Who has the real wealth, I ask you.
