The Culture War is a Demographic War (part 2 or 3, I forget)

A Wall Street Journal opinion piece linked for us by CWNews.com, brings us this little gem from two leftists:

"Maybe the scales are tipping to the neoconservative, homogenous right in our culture simply because they tend not to give much of a damn for the ramifications of wanton breeding and environmental destruction and pious sanctimony, whereas those on the left actually seem to give a whit for the health of the planet and the dire effects of overpopulation." It would appear liberals have been quite successful controlling overpopulation--in the Democratic Party.

Of course, I'm not part of the "neoconservative, homogenous right." I'm not a Republican. I'm a crazy, seditious reactionary Jacobite. But the leftists who wrote this aren't clever enough to know the difference. They would likely lump me in with the Bushies, so I presume they're talking about me.

The Jolie Justus crowd ought to do what damage they can now, because if we persist in even the charade of democracy we now have, there's little hope that they'll be able to do it in another 10 years. If I were a political consultant to the party of "abortion, buggery, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, feminism of the radical type, and genetic experimentation and mutilation," I'd suggest that perhaps they can extend their power in this little pocket of Missouri a few years more by keeping the schools in Kansas City, Missouri as lousy as they are, so that those conservative and reactionary families who don't homeschool tend to leave the city for places with schools that have a better reputation (however undeserved).

I've been saying for years that the left would contracept itself out of existence. Their sterile mentality puts them at an extreme disadvantage to others who are not equally anti-life and who actually find children to be a beautiful experience.

The problem which those of us non-neocons face is that the only people having more children than us are Islamic. Hence the muslim explosion to fill Europe's population vaccuum.

Hi, Im from Melbourne Australia.
I much prefer these references on the origins & consequences of the culture wars.

Perhaps the dreaded "liberals" are more aware that the world faces a very real overpopulation problem and that we cant keep on "growing" in numbers forever. It is ecological impossible for everyone on the planet to live even a modest American lifestyle.
Among other things this essay

discusses the very real problem of over population and the almost inevitable decline of truly humanising culture in the resultant "culture" of mass poverty.

I wonder if you are familiar with The Planet of Slums by Mike Davis?
Welcome to the future!
