European demographic decline has been a topic that has been canvassed a lot on this blog. Looking at our more recent posts this year, we have written about Italy’s demographic “apocalypse”, Hungary’s fight against depopulation, Europe’s dying villages, the migrant crisis, Romania’s longterm demographic decline, and Finland’s historically low birthrates. We even saw Lord Sack’s warning that we are seeing the fall of western civilisation due in large part (or perhaps evidenced by) low birthrates.
Today I want to share a viewpoint that I’m sure many in Europe share (as I know people outside of Europe who hold it) from Italian author and journalist, Giulio Meotti. Writing for the Gatestone Institute website, Meotti describes a “population substitution” that is happening in Europe.
