A demographic question

Hi Sack

It kind of looks like you are going to get where you are going whether you like it or not.

The implications if we hadn't started on this orgiastic slaughter of the innocents are complex. More than half would still be under 25 years old, and all of working or learning age.

Lots of unknowns, e.g. how many other children were born to mothers who had previously had a termination, and would have remained unborn because of family planning? And then there's the alleged Freakonomics effect of lower crime as a result of fewer births at the lower end of the social scale.

Odd that 1967 - the Summer Of Love - saw the end in the UK of judicial killing for felons, but the legalisation of medical killing for children in the womb, the vast majority of whom (in defiance of the required legal grounds) did not actually present a serious health threat for themselves or their mothers. The way this has accelerated gives me pause when considering the arguments for euthanasia.

The UK is pretty much ruined by the economic and social effects of getting involved in two world wars anyhow. We are incapable of feeding our own population if the world food trading system breaks down. The USA on the other hand has the potential to put itself right.
