KT Demographic Warning Goes Mainstream

KT Demographic Warning Goes Mainstream

We in the Knights Templar have been sounding the alarm about the oncoming Demographic Winter and its threat to the entire industrial world for years now. Initially, we were almost a lone voice; no-one else seemed even to recognise the problem, let alone talk about it, still less try to do anything about it.

Then a few outliers started to take notice of the looming crisis. Even a handful of governments began to act, particularly under Orban in Hungary and Putin in Russia. But the reaction in most Western media outlets was either to sneer at them or to keep ignoring the issue.

Not any more. Recent months have seen all of Britain's liberal newspapers, for example, suddenly start writing about the demographic crisis. The Guardian, Times and Independent have all taken to covering the issue. A Guaridan piece the other day is typical. On 22nd March the paper ran a story entitled 'Beijing’s population falls for first time since 2003 as China battles low birthrate'. The piece reported that the "Chinese capital saw more deaths than births in 2022 as high cost of living and education as well as legacy of one-child policy take their toll".

The same new openness to the issue can be seen in the USA as well."This community’s quarter century without a newborn shows the scale of Japan’s population crisis" ran a report published on the CNN website on March 19, 2023:

“Time is running out to procreate,” Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told a recent press conference, a slogan that seems so far to have fallen short of inspiring the city dwelling majority of the Japanese public.

Amid a flood of disconcerting demographic data, he warned earlier this year the country was 'on the brink of not being able to maintain social functions.'

The country saw 799,728 births in 2022, the lowest number on record and barely more than half the 1.5 million births it registered in 1982. Its fertility rate – the average number of children born to women during their reproductive years – has fallen to 1.3 – far below the 2.1 required to maintain a stable population. Deaths have outpaced births for more than a decade.

.....some fear the country is hurtling toward the point of no return, when the number of women of child-bearing age hits a critical low from which there is no way to reverse the trend of population decline.

All this has left the leaders of the world’s third-largest economy facing the unenviable task of trying to fund pensions and health care for a ballooning elderly population even as the workforce shrinks.

Up against them are the busy urban lifestyles and long working hours that leave little time for Japanese to start families and the rising costs of living that mean having a baby is simply too expensive for many young people."

So the message which we hammer particularly in our best-selling book Deus Vult - Reconquista of the West (see our online store or buy it on Amazon) is moving mainstream. Unfortunately for the liberals, they've woken up too late to turn things round and save their rancid, ungodly System. Fortunately for humanity, the amplified warning is now reaching more normal young people. Most will ignore what they hear and carry on as before. But a few will both hear and take heed. And it is those few who will have the children and descendants who will pull themselves through the coming Great Dying and emerge on the other side to rebuild a better world. Deus Vult!
