Something interesting (well, to me, anyway)- Europe's native-born population is no longer shrinking. The Wilson Quarterly reports: "Defying predictions of demographic decline, northern Europeans have started having more babies. Britain and France are now projecting steady population growth through the middle of the century." Populations are, however, declining across much of the developing world-including much of Asia, North Africa, and Latin America. The article points out therefore that recent hysteria about Europe hollowing out and being "Islamicized" due to immigration from North Africa- a scenario alluded to in that First Things piece I linked to recently- is... well, somewhat hysterical. But Americans seem to be breeding too. So, sex is still popular, which is good to hear.
