    I love this podcast. Under-employed 18-year-olds are who we send on missions.

    Haven’t had time to listen to the podcast. Are you speaking of a church, such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints?

    A big part of demographic problems in Europe are that they may not be clearly noticeable until they’re entirely beyond correction. Just counting increasing population numbers – and perhaps being panicked about the coming “end-of-the-world” – doesn’t do it. For example, I read somewhere not too long ago that very few “native” French women are still in the childbearing age range. So even if they decided TOMORROW to start having more kids and not be taken over by Muslims simply by reproduction, the bottom line is, they CAN’T. So unless they start bringing in a lot of non-French people from non-Islamic countries, or they get hardcore into cloning or something, it’s simply too late for France, already. Even with millions of French people still alive, they didn’t make replacements for themselves. So when they age and die off, they’re gone.

    In what is probably still my all-time favorite interview, with Mark Steyn, he commented that the Netherlands, for example, was taking some pro-assimilation actions such as banning the veil in public. But that’s not a long-term solution. The ethnic Dutch population continues to decline, and once the population of ethnic Dutch people is outnumbered by muslim immigrants etc, they just undo the ban and proceed with the takeover.
