I wanted to share with you this e-mail I sent today. We must speak back to those who fill our papers with such lies:
Dear Emma and Lee,
I’m very concerned over your recent article [advising Swedes to have fewer children] …
The current birthrate in Sweden is 1.89, while in Germany and Norway it is lower than this. However, the sub-replacement fertility rate is under 2.1 children. So in effect all three of these countries are headed for complete collapse.
How can you responsibly post a piece that suggests a ‘moral’ obligation to have FEWER children in Europe or other Western nations with civilization-level collapse birthrates?
This is in fact a destructive position that will only further the complete collapse of your own society.
As a former expat in Sweden, I am sickened at such lies.
