Short films on "demographic winter" abound
I reviewed “Demographic Winter” on my Movies blog June 7, but there are a number of short films about the issue on YouTube.
For example, watch “The Sad Truth About Europe”, posted by Casa LuBanana (7 min).
The film says that a culture cannot sustain itself for more than 25 years with a fertility rate of less than 1.9 per couple. I think “you know” where this is headed, as it discusses Muslim immigration into Europe, and Canada and, to a lesser extent, the United States. I don’t think the film is correct on US fertility rates.
Ladyattis has a contrasting video, “Demographic Winter Is a Myth” (9 min). She argues that a young population is not necessarily essential to a technological culture.
