Saw this link yesterday, under the title, “If Mark Steyn’s new book was a video” and thought I’d give it a go. I think Mark Steyn is a genius, I read anything with his name on it, and I’ve not been disappointed yet.
To me, the video comes across as rather alarmist, with the music and the dramatic presentation. But, as I mulled it over, saw the actual demographic statistics, I suddenly realized that perhaps there’s cause for alarm. No doubt someone will say, so what if Islam takes over the world? Things change, yes. But there’s this radical little arm of Islam known as “jihadists” who want to make all of western civilization (with its traditions and unique culture–including women’s rights, human rights, you know, freedom) disappear. And therein lies the real problem; even though the majority of moderate Muslims simply want to live their lives, so to speak, those who run their mosques ascribe to this radical view of Islam. Statistics confirm this. So, yes, it’s well and good to say, “live and let live.” But in order for that contract to be honored, both parties have to honor it. And that, my friends, is the rub.
We’re contracepting and aborting ourselves right out of existence. I like to call it, “Dearth Birth.” Catchy, no?
The good news? We won’t have to worry about taking care of our national debt–in a matter of years, if things don’t reverse–it might not be our problem anymore.
