Are We Running Out of People?



Ask anyone if the world is overpopulated, and you know what they will say. The idea that we humans are breeding ourselves to death—and taking the planet with us–is in the air that we breathe. It was drummed into us in high school biology, where we were told that the world is like a tiny “lifeboat.”  We have to lighten the load, our teachers told us, or the “lifeboat” will sink and we will all …

China Stepping Up Measures to Boost the Birth Rate



Since the Chinese Party-State abandoned its one-child policy two years ago, birth rates across in China have remained stubbornly low.

This article originally appeared on Breitbart It wasn’t so long ago that Chinese officials were bragging about the success of their population control program. When the Chinese Minister of Health, Gao Qiang, visited the U.S. in 2011, he proudly told a horrified group of U.S. Congressmen: “We have eliminated 400 million people from the population. We have eliminated more people than the entire population of the United States.” Now comes word that the Party is poised to …

Immigrants Flood Into Europe



“It doesn’t matter if we Spaniards do not have enough children, as long as foreign migrants come to Spain and have kids here,” the head of a major conservative Spanish think tank said to me a couple of years ago. I had suggested to him that the center-right Partido Popular—now the governing party in Spain—promote pro-natal policies. But can immigration really make up for Spain’s growing birth deficit? Since 2011, when we had our conversation, …
