It's the people, period.

In Russia, they're promoting "Family Contact" day to boost flagging birth rates. In Germany, a new book, called the Noah's Ark Principle, extols "values like the family, children and motherhood" (and, unfortunatelly, is making headlines for the wrong reasons). And, finally, in Vienna, Pope Benedict is urging European leaders to raise birth rates and make their countries more family friendly. (h/t to Bourque and Drudge for links.)

Seems that more and more people are falling into line behind our Mark Steyn and his identification of demographics as the 21st Century's paramount issue.

The demographic timebomb in the West is not our declining birthrates, it's the mass Third World immigrant invasion of our European Christian societies. The Middle East is absorbing Europe while Latin America is incorporating the US.

Unless this invasion is stopped, the only question left is which country will we most resemble in the future: Mexico, Brazil, South Africa or Lebanon?
