Mark Steyn asserts that Europe is pretty much a lost cause for the following three reasons:
Demographic decline, financially unsustainable social-democratic states, and loss of civilizational will.*
And America, along with Canada and Australia, is not exempt from the future he predicts.
Not designed to brighten your day. But there is very little of what he says that I do not agree with.
I do take issue with his forlorn hope expressed here, but agree with his final conclusion.
I do think that unless you have real serious culture confidence
you should not have mass Muslim immigration. I say that with
regret because I would like to believe that all societies can bring
people there and create Americans, create Canadians, create
Englishmen, create Dutchmen.
But I do think that at some point we have to grasp the nettle of
mass immigration, which is always a sign of societal weakness
*Although er rejects Mr Steyn's analysis, I recall that it was er himself who quite poignantly wrote about the astonishing phenomenon of an entire civilization walking off a cliff based solely on the question, "Well, who's to say?"
