Five Worldwide Population Trends: All Scary

Foreign Policy has some demographic news that some readers of this blog are already acquainted with, but other news that scares the bejezuz out of me.

"The South Explodes" in population and "the South Heads North" are really scary. But "Too Many Grooms, not Enough Brides" in both India & China mean that a lot of dudes will have testoserone urges, and that often means war. With two nuclear billion-plus nations in a bellicose frame of mind, I'm hoping they fight each other and leave my kids alone.

Finally "Europe and the Far East Turn Gray" is sort of old news. The good news is that even the white folks in the USA are at about 1.8 reproduction rate, which along with Australia makes the two English-speaking countries unique. And it's the conservatives who are procreating, not the urban chattering illuminati. So all we have to do is fix the awful educational system in the USA to keep our country from going Bolshie.
