Steyn on life and everything else
Mark Steyn reflects on the important things, and ends up with "its the demography, stupid."
Since 1945, a multiplicity of government interventions - state pensions, subsidised higher education, higher taxes to pay for everything - has so ruptured traditional patterns of inter-generational solidarity that in Europe a child is now an optional lifestyle accessory. By 2050, Estonias population will have fallen by 52 per cent, Bulgarias by 36 per cent, Italys by 22 per cent. The hyper-rationalism of post-Christian Europe turns out to be wholly irrational: whats the point of creating a secular utopia if its only for one generation?
