Fukushima: Aftermath and Implications

The devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami that hit Japan on March 11 have not garnered as much concern as the subsequent crisis involving the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. David Grabbe ponders, not just the effects of this catastrophe on Japan's economy, but also how Tokyo will react on the world stage as a result.

Demography Is Destiny

John Ritenbaugh reiterates that demography is destiny. Population trends become reliable trends of future national consequences. Population declines in Russia have lead President Vladimir Putin to propose stipends to couples for having children. Japan's population has declined so drastically that 50% of the productive force will be put out of commission by reason of age. Vance Packard has suggested that capitalism cannot succeed without an increasing population and a constant stimulus to buy more and more. Without a steady base of consumers, capitalism will die. Barack Obama, an avowed advocate of population control (i.e. abortion or murder) and a supporter of homosexuality and gay 'marriage' (a certain pathway to population decline), will usher in economic woes by systematically destroying the population. Abortion is a cancer, eating into the economic base of the nation. We do not have a debt crisis as much as a death crisis.

Population Trends in Asia (Part Two): The Graying of Asia

Charles Whitaker:  Today, the prospect of lengthening life expectancies appear more fantasy than possibility. "[A]ll five former Soviet Central Asian republics began the year 2000 with distinctly lower life expectancies that they enjoyed in 1990—all this in peacetime and in the absence of any obvious political catastrophe." In the old Soviet Union, it is even worse. ...

The Zeitgeist of Suicide (Part One): Weeping for the Children Who Are Not

It seems counter-intuitive to think that the world's population is shrinking, but trend lines show the possibility of a 95% reduction in population over the next 500 years. Charles Whitaker examines the reasons for this precipitous decline, asserting that God's Word prophesies an altogether different scenario.

The Commandments (Part 11)

John Ritenbaugh reiterates that since a nation is, for the most part, a family grown large, respect for the fifth commandment constitutes the basis for all good government. The family provides the venue for someone to learn to be hospitable and to make sacrifices for one another, learning the rudiments of community relations. For the child, parents stand in the place of God in the family structure, as the child's creator, provider, and teacher. Successful parenting involves sacrifice and intense work. The quality of a child's relationship with his parent (as well as the quality of parenting) determines his relationship to the community as well as to God. Compliance to the fifth commandment brings about the built-in, promised blessing of a long quality life. Our obligation to honor and to take responsibility for the care for our parents (as well as those more elderly than we are) never ends.
