Forget population boom, how about crash

The most fertile group – Muslims – will win this race.

During the post-Second World War decades, global leaders and intellectuals were tortured with the prospect of a planet with too many people to feed, but now the industrialized world is challenged by too few babies and greying populations.

The Family That Flees Together, Trees Together

Can a family that lives in the belly of the Beast be outside of the system? The answer is surprisingly yes.

This whole story began because of the war on marijuana. Well I am not an advocate for the use of it, I am pleased the Canada has made it legal, especially if they can avoid bizarre situations like this one. Go to the 20 minute mark if you want to hear an epic rant against the system and against out of control law enforcement.

The Jarvis family, a group of eight, goes on the run from the law—for seven years. They live on a boat, in a treehouse in a swamp. They escape capture time after time. And how do the kids turn out, living a life outside of society, as fugitives? Surprisingly great.

Breaking the bonds

Removing children at a young age from their natural circle of care (their family) is the fastest way to facilitate psychopathy.

Sure, they may learn more and become independent sooner (by necessity), but learning to detach and stay detached causes irreversible harm to future empathy and relationships.

It’s no wonder a preponderance of our leaders are raised in these parentless coops.

Fred tackles the Jews

Fred touches the third rail.

It is strange: Jews have been disliked everywhere and in all times. The dislike appears in odd places. I was astonished to find that my Nepalese trekking guides were intensely hostile to Jews. They said that Jews (actually Israelis in most cases I think, but the Nepalese do not seem to make the distinction) were loud, demanding, and always trying to force down the guides’ fees.

America’s changed:here’s why

Even though Fred doesn’t realise the school shooting was a #hrdpar ICE Capstone event, this commentary is well done.
OK, so why is the country falling apart? Specifically, why are kids blowing each other away? America has become a source of wonder the world over with its Colulmbines and hundreds and hundreds of dead in Chicago and Baltimore and its burning cities and riots. Other advanced countries don’t do these things.

Why children thrive best in married families

Chances are, the Valentine’s Day flowers have started to wilt a bit by now, which seems fitting considering for the state of marriage and families in Canada today. In fact, newly available census stats suggest we’ve gone a long way in the wrong direction, losing our appreciation for what marriage is and why it matters – especially to children.Simply put, marriage is the best family form for children. And yet, as think tank Cardus has reported, the 2016 census found that only 62% of children up to age 14 were living with two married parents – a dramatic decline from the 73% who lived in such homes in 1996. The decline in marriage is countered by the increase in parents who are not married but living together. That accounts for 17% of children’s living arrangements. (Roughly one in five kids are living with a single parent, and this number has been stable over past census years.)
