One way to fix the problem

Birth rates are declining in the west, and we have been told a lie that we need to import foreigners to make up for this difference.  While proposing that as a solution is patently absurd and societal suicide, Hungary offers a different incentive.

Hungary’s prime minister has announced a raft of measures aimed at boosting the country’s declining birth rate and reducing immigration.

Giving his annual State of the Nation address Sunday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced a seven-point “Family Protection Action Plan” designed to promote marriage and families.

Measures announced included waivers on personal income tax for women raising at least four children for the rest of their lives and subsidies for large families to buy larger cars. The ‘action plan’ also extended a loan program to help families with at least two children to buy homes. Every woman under 40 will also be eligible for a preferential loan when she first gets married.

The government has also said it will spend more on Hungary’s heathcare system and will create 21,000 creche places. In addition, grandparents will be eligible to receive a childcare fee if they look after young children instead of the parents, Orban said.

“There are fewer and fewer children born in Europe. For the West, the answer (to that challenge) is immigration. For every missing child there should be one coming in and then the numbers will be fine,” Orban said, Reuters reported.

“But we do not need numbers. We need Hungarian children,” he said, announcing the incentives program.

Victor Orban is a good man, concerned for the well being of his people, aka Hungarians.  It is hard to say if this would work in America or not.  On the one hand this should incentive whites to have more children, especially because they bear the brunt of the tax burden.  There would be more of an incentive there for them than other racial groups who pay less in taxes already.  On the other hand, if the idea is to increase the population of actual Americans (read: pre-1965 demographics) this may help but could potentially only exacerbate the problem if other groups take more advantage of it.

As always, people will freak out when you read something like that.  The powers that be have successfully made the topic of race and demographics verboten.  Toxic.  But it is not toxic to want to preserve one’s own people.  To defend one’s own country from enemies both within and beyond our borders.  As has been stated many times before, there is no magic dirt here in the United States.  You do not automatically become American, whatever American even means anymore, just because you now live in this country, and even become a citizen.  Once upon a time America had a very distinct racial makeup.  But the myth of the melting pot and post-1965 immigration have turned it into a fractured society.  I doubt very much whether that trend can be reversed.  Certainly closing the borders entirely and ending immigration altogether would be a good starting point.  Again: it is not racist to want to live amongst your own people and preserve the demographic makeup this country historically was.  Every other non-western country seems to have this right already.  We should too.

The Founding Fathers got it

As the relentless attacks continue on our country and our way of life many try to minimize the importance of Christianity in Western civilization and America in general.  Our Founding Fathers realized how important religion was to the success of this country.  Given the frighteningly fast decline of the country as religion continues to be marginalized here it’s clear that there is a direct link between this erosion of religion and the erosion of our moral compass as a nation.  And we see the corresponding cracks in our form of government as this erosion continues.  A letter from John Adams to the Massachusetts Militia, 11 October 1798.  Please excuse the parts of the manscript where there are gaps or deleted text, bold emphasis added by me.

To the Officers of the <third> first Brigade of the third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts

Quincy October 11. 1798

Gentlemen

I have received from Major General Hull and Brigadier General Walker your unanimous Address from Lexington, animated with a martial Spirit and expressed with a military Dignity, becoming your Characters and the <place> memorable Plains, in which it was adopted.

While our Country remains untainted with the Principles and manners, which are now producing desolation in so many Parts of the World: while the continues Sincere and incapable of insidious and impious Policy: We shall have the Strongest Reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned Us by Providence. But should the People of America, once become capable of that deep <[…]> simulation towards one another and towards foreign nations, which assumes the Language of Justice and moderation while it is practicing Iniquity and Extravagance; and displays in the most captivating manner the charming Pictures of Candour frankness & sincerity while it is rioting in rapine and Insolence: this Country will be the most miserable Habitation in the World. Because We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by <[…]> morality and Religion. Avarice, Ambition <and> Revenge or Galantry, would break the strongest Cords of our Constitution as a Whale goes through a Net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other

An Address so unanimous and firm from the officers commanding two thousand Eight hundred Men, consisting of such substantial Citizens as are able and willing at their own Expence, compleatly to arm, And cloath themselves in handsome Uniforms does honor to that Division of the Militia which has done so much honor to their Country. Oaths, in this Country, are as yet universally considered as Sacred Obligations. That which you have taken and so solemnly repeated on that venerable Spot is an ample Pledge of your sincerity, and devotion to your Country and its Government.

Today is the 49th anniversary of man landing on the Moon.  A titanic achievement by brave men of this fine country.  Sadly, probably on some level the pinnacle of our achievement thus far.  But I hold out hope and optimism that President Trump will challenge that pinnacle for the 50th anniversary and beyond.  Enjoy some of the footage below.  I’d also be remiss if I didn’t recommend the fantastic In the Shadow of the Moon which is available on Amazon Prime and interviews many of the 12 men who landed on the moon.
