For nearly half a century, the left has warned about an out of control growth in world population. Their global socialist leaders have demanded that families be smaller and more sustainable. The citizens of the West have responded accordingly but this begs the question “why are these nations accepting so many migrants if there is a need for fewer people”?
If Germany, for example, cut back its welfare state and increased its support for marriage and family, population inadequacy problems would cease to exist. There would be no need to accept mass migration from third world countries.
It appears that the anti-work, anti-family and anti-Western culture policies of the global socialists are creating a massive unsustainable situation for first world citizens and nations.
Because welfare benefits sustain life without work, there are fewer citizens willing to be employed. To compensate for government work and welfare policy failures, many Western countries have accepted non-native people under the premise that they will do the work citizens won’t. Of course, the truth is that without welfare or other anti-work incentives, the native population could and would do the work. As Benjamin Franklin once said “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
Societal pressures and economic impediments have reduced both marriage numbers and family sizes. No longer do young men and women seek family – and with the conflicting messages of the sexual revolution it is no wonder. First world native populations are in deficit, not in surplus. However, the population deficit can be solved by re-encouraging traditional and natural population growth.
The overpopulation globalists don’t want to admit their population policy failures, preferring instead to destroy a first world nation’s culture and people. They also cannot admit that the massive surplus of population is a problem in the third world that needs to be solved in the third world, not by using the first world as a population relief valve. (Such an admission would not be politically correct and charges of as “racism” or “xenophobia” would abound.)
A sizable portion of the potentially productive citizens is out of the workforce because of their own choosing. However, a bigger problem occurs when migrant “workers” aren’t really workers at all. It is well documented that a sizable majority of migrants consume welfare in terms of direct payments, healthcare, education, and housing. In addition, many bring their families with them and the non-native welfare burden is increased by substantial multiples.
The cultural devastation and destruction associated with non-working migrants is extensive, and increasingly demoralizing to the native population. When a citizen walks their streets in fear of migrant crime, intolerance and hatred build. (Notably, any dissent from government open immigration policies is ruthlessly suppressed even when the violence from a clash of cultures is obvious.)
The global socialists have developed a population control argument that is full of untruths. Intra-national marriage and family growth are important to the productivity and success of a nation. Welfare is not a panacea for maintaining societal stability; rather it is a danger to it. Population is not out of control in Western first world countries but in third world countries.
The myths of global overpopulation have driven policies that favor global socialism at the expense of individual freedom and national culture. The citizen response has been a rise in national populism. Only a change in national governments and the draconian policies that adversely impact family formation and work will save first world civilization from slavery, genocide, and societal suicide.
