    Interesting about Russia. Why not encourage the millions of Sub-Saharan Africans, indeed anyone who is risking, and frequently losing, their lives to get to Europe, on leaky deadly boats – to go there?
    No, because they are black, and Russia won’t have them.
    As nor will the UK, or Italy, or Spain. Then of course, in Russia – do what they are starting to do; make it profitable to have big families. Pay people to do so. Not too difficult.

    Interesting that one of the things you’ve taken from this video is that financial incentives are the way forward for Russia, when a.) the video makes the point more than once that these incentives do not work and cannot be by themselves a long-term solution, and that b.) the overall thrust of the video is that it is only by renewing cultural attitudes informed by faith, which had been so severely undercut and maligned under the Soviets, that real, lasting change can occur.

    I take this to mean that the only measure that will successfully work, then, Michael – is that the Russian people must opt freely to have very big families, like in the carefree, enjoyable, and enviable days of The Serfs.
    …Or else “civilisation,” is a gonner.
    This, we must hope, involving the wife agreeing with Hubby from the start about this project.
    I wouldn’t want a large family, personally. Three children was a very nice number for me, though I suppose four or five might have been equally nice, or even nicer. I wouldn’t have minded. My wife did, however. So we settled for three.
    I don’t know about your achievements or ambitions, numberwise – ten, fifteen? (one eye on the Muslim birth explosion) Whyever not? You won’t have go through the tedious affair of carrying any of them – around until after they are born.

    Very good luck to Mrs. Michael Kenny.

    So, as Satan reputedly tells us, it takes all sorts – and a positive army of nippers might be a veritable barrel of laughs, and Very Great Big Fun. …Like having lots of dogs.

    Yes, Toad, that was the plain point of the video, as well as the fact that this will not happen without a change in attitude towards children, the family, etc, in general, which itself will only be able to be recaptured by a reawakening of the Christian faith still latent in many of the Russian people (though in need of much repair after the damage done by decades of Soviet anti-life propaganda).

    Or else “civilisation,” is a gonner

    Patently yes – if countries/societies/civilisations don’t reproduce enough of themselves, they will eventually die out, to be replaced by another demographic who still see the family and children as a good thing, and most of the West seems to be going down this road. Seems clear cut enough to me.

    I’ll take the rest of your comment with a very large pinch of salt if you don’t mind.
