The aborted and the unconceived
The mysterious phenomenon of depopulation is starting to worry European governments. Even Richard Hoste writes about it. Vladimir Simkhovich explains the decay of Greece and Rome by agricultural decay, the soil lost its fertility for lack of rotation. I am not so sure that the problem was lack of technical knowledge. Spengler explains the decay by loss of the will to live, the obscure elan vital. Hedonism or return to paganism cannot be the cause, as the childless people I know work not less than the religious ones. It is probable that I will not find the answer to this problem.
