As the population shrinks so does the culture. Click on the title to see a fascinating video demonstrating how healthy growing cultures depend on growing populations. I am not sure where these numbers come from but if they are accurate, they are quite sobering to think about. As the European, Asian and American populations are shrinking, Muslim populations are growing. At the present rate of growth, they could dominate the world by the year 2050. Looks like they are making pretty good progress! I found it fascinating that the US Hispanic population helps to boost the total US population to the point where is is just barely sustainable. Wow...guess we had all better get busy making some babies or we may not have a country or a culture by the middle of the century!
