"Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.” -King T'Challa, Black Panther
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it. ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~Winston Churchill
First, "from my questionable source" please tell us why Alex Berenson is a questionable source. I will then attend to your other misguided statements.
Here's a teaser, you imply via your "sources" that the birthrate was declining before the Covid pandemic. There is no argument however to use this source as a reference that mRNA shots did not add to this drop in birth rates is misleading. Birth rates in the Occidental countries are declining I never suggested that the shot was the only cause , but, rather a contributing factor.
Please tell me why Alex Berenson is not a reputable source. Or do you enjoy painting someone as questionable without providing any reasons for your slur.
There are a number of reasons why fertility rates are in decline. Urbanization, children are cheaper and more useful in agrarian cultures. As women get more rights and become more equal, fertility rates tend to decline. Can't prove causation, but probably a factor, along with more birth control access and more abortion rights.
Society is also changing, people are getting married much later than normal, so instead of having 4 kids by 30 like my mom, now it is one or two kids after 30.
It will be interesting to see if government policies can change this trend. Can the US afford to give out a 30k tax credit for every child born? Would that encourage more women to stay home and raise children? Or would just the religious take advantage of the money? Mormons, Opus Dei Catholics, Muslim families?
