I was thinking more about the fight between Russians and Ukrainians, and I would like to once more reiterate my position on this matter.
- The liberal media of the west is attempting to focus our attention on Russia in a 1984 style “two minutes of hate” where Russia stands in for Emmanuel Goldstien. Basically, we are being instructed to focus our hate and wrath on Russia, even though Russia has never harmed us, so that we do not pay attention to those who are actively working to harm and undermine us.
- The Russian separatists are ethno-nationalists. A nation is not a set of political boundaries, it is a people group, but things are often better when political boundaries coincide with the geographic area occupied by a people group. In this case, the root of the problem is that they do not. Following the breakup of the Soviet Union, political lines were drawn through Russian areas so that the administrative body of Ukraine would have more territory to control.
- Putin, and the Russians, are not trying to acquire more land and resources, although that is an ancillary result of this. Russia is already the largest country in the world in terms of land, what Russia really needs is more Russians. The Russian population is small compared with its land area, which makes defense difficult, and on top of that their birth rate is abysmally low.
- I do believe that this war is an unfortunate shame. Ukrainians and Russians have more in common with one another than they do differences. Both populations are in a state of decline, and they are engaged in killing one another over those small differences. I believe that the solution to this situation is mutual respect and enlightened self-interest on behalf of the parties directly involved. The goading by corrupt western governments and the liberal media is only going to inflame the situation further.
The annexation of Crimea is a FACT. It has happened, and it is done. Crimea is part of Russia, and it is part of Russia because that is what the ethnic Russians in Crimea voted for. But I also recalled that the US Government refused to recognize this annexation. That brought me to the CIA World Factbook, as well as a renewed interest in the population demographics of the countries involved.
My primary source of information for this entry is the CIA World Factbook found online as of 6-13-2015: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/index.html
According to the CIA World Factbook (as of now), Crimea is still part of Ukraine (see my cursor). This is a blatant denial of reality, as the government of Ukraine no longer has any jurisdiction or control over that region. It is for all intents and purposes part of Russia, regardless of how fervently certain people may wish this was not the case. Reality is what it is, but this goes to show that they have an agenda bias which takes precedence over accurately depicting reality in all cases.
So then, why am I going to use this as the primary source for this discussion? Because even though I am convinced their agenda is to promote the Cathedral and interpret and skew the data in that light, I can still use the numbers they have presented to argue my points.
The main threat Ukraine faces is low birthrates.
According to the Factbook ethnic Ukrainians make up 77.8% of the population, and Russians make up 17.3%, but I do not know whether or not this figure includes those Russians who have successfully seceded and joined Russia.
The birthrate is 9.41 babies per 1000 people, and the death rate is 15.72 deaths per 1000 people. That means that the population is in a state of decline, even without the war. A look at the population graph, which is SUPPOSED to be a pyramid, is even more unsettling.
What we can tell from this graph, is that the generation of people aged 50-54 was roughly the last generation where most of the people still believed in having children. After that the decline begins, and the 30-34 year olds have absolutely failed. If those trends continue, there will be no more than a handful of Ukrainians left. The rate of decline provided by the Factbook is a 0.64% population decline, which I assume is per year. But in any case, as the larger age demographics age beyond their reproductive years without having kids, the decline will accelerate precipitously, as the generation capable of reproduction is half the size of their parent’s generation (or less).
If Ukraine should join the EU, it will be obligated to accept Muslim and other 3rd world immigrants who will have much higher birthrates, and those people will also demand a cut of the Ukrainian’s GDP for welfare and medical coverage. Ukrainians will become a minority in their own homeland.
Russia has a birth rate of 11.87 babies per 1000 people, and a death rate of 13.83 deaths per 1000 people. The rate of population decline is a shrinkage of 0.03%. While this is still a decline, it is not quite so precipitous as Ukraine, or is it?
According to the Factbook Russia is 77.7% Russian, and ALL the groups in Russia were averaged together when calculating the average birthrate for the country. We don’t know what the actual birthrate for Russians is going by the Factbook.
It is worth noting that the population of Russia is listed as being somewhere between 10-15% Muslim, and this is likely the reason why the overall population for Russia is not declining as fast as that of Ukraine. Muslims typically have very high birthrates.
From the population graph of Russia we can infer that the generation consisting of 55-59 year olds (at present) was the last age demographic that believed in having children. If current trends continue, the population graph for Russia will continue to shrink, but then it will eventually widen out due to Russians dying off while the Muslims continue to reproduce at the same rate they always have.
Who is the real enemy we need to be worried about here?
Let’s take a look at some European countries…
According to the population graph, it looks like the last generation to believe in child birth was the 50-54 year old (at present) demographic. Yet, we don’t see quite so severe an overall population decline as we do in Russia and Ukraine. In fact, it appears that the decline was temporary, and the amount of babies being born is increasing. The implication here is that the last large generation of Native Europeans produced in the UK were born during the 1960’s.
According to the information presented here, white people compose 87.2% of the total population, but the US government defines “white” as including peoples of European, Middle Eastern, and North African descent. Since this is a statistic about the UK, they might be going with UK definitions, and it is entirely possible “white” in this context refers to Native Europeans, but even if it does, that would include Europeans of all types who happen to be there, not just English, Scotts, Irish, and Welsh.
What is more concerning is that Muslims are listed as 4.4% of the population, and the Muslims have much higher birthrates. The increase in birthrates is probably entirely due to the Muslims and other 3rd world immigrants who are residing in the UK.
According to Wikipedia (a questionable source at best) about 70% of the population growth between 2001 and 2011 was due to immigration.
The problem started with the British Nationality Act of 1948, which opened the doors for a massive flood of immigration.
According to the Daily Mail:
Post-World War II immigration has been on a completely different scale from anything that went before. These days, more people arrive on our shores as immigrants in a single year than did so in the entire period from 1066 to 1950, excluding wartime.
Much of this happened by accident. When the 1948 Nationality Act was passed — giving all citizens of the Empire and Commonwealth the right to live and work in Britain — it was not expected that the ordinary people of poor former colonies would arrive in their hundreds of thousands.
Nor was it expected after 1997 that a combination of quite small decisions would lead to 1.5 million East Europeans arriving, about half to settle. But come they did, and a net immigration of around four million foreign-born citizens since 1997 has produced easily the most dramatic demographic revolution in British history.
Non-whites are expected to rise to 20% of the population by 2021, and whites are expected to become a minority by 2066.
SATURDAY ESSAY: Why we on the Left made an epic mistake on immigration

So, even though the population graph shows a growing population in the UK, the population which is growing is not European.
According to the CIA World Factbook, Spain has a birthrate of 9.88 babies per 1000 people, a death rate of 9 people per 1000, and a positive population growth rate of 0.81% (per year?). However, they do not give any specific data on ethnic minorities, nor on religious minorities.
According to the Pew Research Center Muslims composed 2.3% of the population of Spain in 2010, and that number is projected to keep growing.
Based on the population graph provided by the CIA World Factbook, the last generation in Spain that believed in having children was the 55-59 year old (at present) demographic. The 35-49 year old generations foolishly decided to cut their numbers in half. Even if the birthrate is higher than the death rate, for now, there will be a severe population drop once those who are presently middle aged start dying off, but before that happens, there will come a time when there are more people retired than working, which will put stress on the economy and the young people.
According to the population graph provided for France, it looks like the last generation of French people who strongly believed in reproduction was the 60-64 year old (at present) demographic. Even though France appears to have an average birthrate of 12.49 births per 1000 people, and a death rate of 9.06 deaths per 1000, it is worth noting that there is no breakdown provided by race or religion.
France is listed as 7 to 9% Muslim, and that number is still growing. “North African” is listed as one of the ethnic groups, and most of those are probably Algerian. It would be hard to find what that exact number is, as North Africans are often lumped in as “white,” and due to the fact that the French government wishes to hide breakdowns of birthrates by race.
The population map for Germany is especially grim, and seems to indicate that the last generation of Germans to believe in reproduction is the demographic which is currently the 60-69 year old demographic. This may have something to do with guilt over WWII, which would be misplaced and idiotic, as (if this statistic is accurate) it was the generations born AFTER the war who decided to stop having babies, and they would have had nothing at all to do with the war. White guilt and oikophobia is a powerful and crippling mind virus.
According to these statistics, the birthrate for Germany is 8.42 births per 1000 people, and the death rate is 11.29 per 1000. Again, I believe that this abysmal rate, which results in a shrinking population, is the result (German) white guilt combined with nihilism.
These rates are a combined average which factor in all ethnic and religious minorities. The population of Germany is listed as being 3.7% Muslim, with most of those being Turks. So, because the German people have largely chosen to commit a genocide against themselves, the Turks will accomplish in the next century (or possibly this century) what they were not able to accomplish during the middle ages when the aggressively pushed and conquered their way into Europe as far as Austria and Germany. They will win a base for themselves in the heartland of Europe, but not through conquest. They will win it through the passive submission and surrender of the German people.
According to this graph, the last generation of Italians that believed in having children are the 60-64 year olds (at present). The generation of 40-44 year olds decided that other things were more important than the continued existence of their nation.
At present Italy is a major destination for North African and black African immigrants, many of which are Muslims. The CIA World Factbook specifies that there are about 800,000 to one million Muslims in Italy, but that was as of 2014, and the numbers are growing at present.
The data shows what appears to be a general and massive drop in the European population world-wide. What we need to be concerned about is our low birthrates, factors that contribute to those low birthrates, and what sorts of people are being allowed to flood into our countries.
We cannot afford to fight another massive war with one another, as we did during WWI and WWII. We have nothing to gain from such a war, and literally everything to lose. Even if nukes were not a factor, we don’t have the robust birthrates or the economic vitality to endure a massive war among ourselves, and on top of that we have large Islamic minorities in many of our countries, and other potentially hostile outsiders who would probably turn to looting us in the wake of a war, or DURING the war. Of course, nukes would be a factor, and Russia has more than enough nukes to level Europe AND the US. We do have a long history of war with each other, but we cannot afford to sustain it any longer with our demographic decline.
Let’s all step back and have a moment of sanity rather than a moment of hate, and think in terms of our own self-interest. Who stands to benefit from another European World War? Who stands to benefit from a war with Russia? What will such a war accomplish?
I must emphasize that Russia has never attacked the US. Russians do not engage in mass shootings for “religious” reasons, they do not blow up school busses, night clubs, or marathons. They have no religious or political system which approaches anywhere near the brutality of Sharia law. They do not engage in honor killings, forced conversion, or the rape of nine year old girls. They are not invading the US, nor are ethnic Russians set to become the majority in the US, but even if they were, European Americans have more in common with Russians culturally and genetically than we do with the bulk of Mexicans and other Central Americans.
If some ethnic minority wants to secede from a western or other European country let’s not call them subversives or traitors. Let’s look at it objectively, and see who suffers by their secession vs. who gains from it, and run it through the filter of “what does it have to do with us?”/”how does it affect us?”.
The only people that are hurt are governments who will end up with smaller tax base and access to fewer resources due to the secession. Our focus should not be how to make our governments bigger, but how we can survive and be free as individuals and as cultures. An increase in cultural homogeneity means there will be greater self-determination for the members of that group. Not everyone needs to be doing the same thing or living under the same government. We should focus on finding ways to do our own thing where we are, while allowing others to do their own thing where they are.
We are in a burning house, and only a complete moron fights in a burning house. Some people want us to keep fighting so that more of us will die.
