It's happening. Pretty soon my country will follow suit, since we are pretty much swamp-germans (Netherlands). This is what happens, when the family unit is destroyed. There are NO incentives for men to have children.

I can see it all around me, young people are refusing to have children. Most experts are saying it's an economic decision, which is partially true, but also a lie by omission (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie#Lying_by_omission). They are simply refusing to realize the years of feminist policies which have backfired and come to bite us all in the ass.

Ofcourse the political solution is....drum roll...wait for it....

''Mr Probst said the country would need young immigrant workers to fill the significant skills gap. And more women were needed in the workforce to avoid economic problems.''

More feminism!

''That the government of Angela Merkel has thrown so much money at the problem is seen by many, even within her own ranks, as a mistake. "Elterngeld" or "parents' allowance" has cost well over €20bn (£16.1bn) since it was introduced five years ago and its results are questionable.''

Ofcourse the solution to the problem is, the same thing which has started the problem in the first place. Europe is doomed and on it's way to economic disaster. The powers that be have to be either

  1. Ignorant and thus incapable of doing their job.
  2. Aware of what they're doing, but simply don't care.

''Demographics and family policy experts are divided over the reasons for the apparent reluctance to have children, as well as the ways to tackle the situation. What they generally agree on is that Germany's demographic future looks gloomy. With many more Germans dying than being born for 40 years, the obvious results will be a shrinking workforce, lower growth and a struggle to pay for a rapidly ageing population.''

Edit:Interesting comment that highlights why the decline in German birth rate is not just economical:

German here. The lower class has many children, since the state benefits are quite good, but the middle class or above start very late or never at all.

There's no reason for any woman to not have children. Great universal healthcare, guaranteed time off (up to 3 years), you may pick up your old job, low costs (if you're good with money), no college fund needed. Economic reasons my ass. It's probably one of the best countries to have children in.

Swiss here, 60km from german border, similar culture.

Raising kids with femnazis gone wild in the government structure is a hell of a job. Last spring we were back from holidays late due to TAP pilot strike and our 3-grader missed 1 day of school. No problem?

We had "child protective services" harassing us for months now. They interrogate kids stasi style (intrrogate neighbor kids), they want us to pay a hefty fine, they try to send the police to ivestigate us and they are contemplating to put the kid in foster care. Because kid missed 1 FUCKING SCOOL DAY. No joke, i can provide the documents.

I would never want to miss my kids, its the best thing i have ever done. But i cant recommend it. There is too much CRAZY in education.

Im waiting for the fine, which i wont pay. Then they might sue for the fine and and i will have a little speech in court. If i dont hire a lawyer this wont even cost me much.

Last time a company sued me they crumbled at the mandatory conciliation meeting and they payed me $280 for the 2 hours i lost.

That's crazy.

Here in Sweden child protective services almost superseded country laws. They can do whatever they want to. My parents took in my nice because my sister got into bad crowd(drugs). It functions as a adoptive family, since otherwise she'd be taken in by complete strangers. The amount of shit my parents are forced to take in order to keep her is fucking enormous.

The leftists are usually employed by the state or don't have any income, so making the state more powerful is beneficial to them. Luckily the Germans don't trust them with economic issues.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I can understand you being angry or scared, but if you want to understand the problem, then implying that leftists intentionally want to destroy Germany won't give you a clear picture of the issues at hand. You can of course debate whether leftist policies will in fact destroy Germany, but most leftists honestly think that leftist policies are good for the country/world in general and not just for themselves. You may think they're misguided or delusional, but they're not intentionally trying to destroy the country and advocating leftist policies as a way of doing that.

The leftists are usually employed by the state or don't have any income, so making the state more powerful is beneficial to them.

For some leftists, this is true. However, usually is distorting facts. According to some quick googling, unemployment rate is Germany is about 5% and about 10% of German workers work for the government. So even if 100% of people on unemployment and 100% of government workers are leftists, then that's still just 15% of the population. So the majority of leftists in fact have a non-government job.

I'm not writing this to piss people off, though I'm sure I will. I'm writing this because there are a lot of constructive things you can do when a lot of people disagree with you and are plain wrong, but there are very few things you can do when a lot of people disagree with you because they actively and intentionally are trying to sabotage the country. Putting blinders on and demonizing the opposition will only lead to polarization and stagnation.

The small number of public sector leftists in all developed countries hold huge influence, and it only takes about 10% of the electorate to shift the Overton window enough to make radical ideas like feminism and white guilt mainstream. Never underestimate the evil these small numbers are capable of inflicting on others; 20th century history from the death camps to the Stasi, is a warning of what happens when this minority gain political influence.

It's the typical SJW stuff. Everyone daring to critizice them gets (socially) annihilated. Their voting power is also quite high, so they get pandered to.

That's exactly what it is, it was a response to Marxism in the late 70's.

I just had this argument with a SJW, that feminism cannot encompasses the entire women's rights movements.

It did not get the right to vote, it did not give women financial freedom. Those were people in the late 1900's and ended after WWII.

Feminism is just a construct of the baby boomer generation. The word literally only comes into the public domain in the late 70's, piggybacking the term Feminism omto the political group called feminist nation party (or something like that).

The term was used to try to mass appeal to unite under single issues based on gender and was a flop at the time.

Seems like it was dusted off and the message was refined a bit more. Same tactics too, that group was known for being trolls in the 1910s.

Feminism the 70's ideology has only been focused on the victimization of women by men, and using the legal system to perpetuate that meme.

socialism is not the problem, only the americans who got too much anti soviet propaganda fed to them would believe that.

for example, being able to afford health care no matter what job you have and thus having the security to have children does not cause people not to have children.

I explained to the poster I originally replied to why he was receiving laughable and incorrect evaluations of German social policy. I don't see what European ignorance of American practices would have added to the topic. But if you'd like me to be more universal, I'm sure that the average Kenyan's perspective on the social policy of Singapore is fairly ignorant as well.

Spot on with the smug Europhile though.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRS73 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The obvious point is that you wouldn't bother to sneer at the alleged cartoonishness of a Kenyan or Singaporean perspective but would debate the merits, or lack thereof, of whatever they said independent of their national origin. But when it comes to America and Americans, you're on it.

Congratulations, though, on being a clichéd, smug, Euro-asshole. I'm glad Obama is pulling the US back from the world policing that is undoubtedly offensive to your EU sensibilities. It will make it easier for Iran to eventually drop a nuke down your chimney.

Iran? You almost jostled my smug tophat and clichéd goblet of Bordeaux there, chap. You see, villain fantasies only remain interesting and exciting when you mix them up every once in a while.

For example, North Korea is certainly targeting our major capitals as we speak, the Vietnamese are most likely up to something again, and I myself never trusted those perfidious Japs anyway.

[–]mrp3anut 13 points14 points  (107 children)

Where do the tax dollars that pay for this healthcare come from? Nothing is free, if you force employers to pay too much or force doctors to charge too little they will either leave and go somewhere else or they will never start their endeavor.

If you feel so strongly about it why don't you go to med school, get your 500k worth of student loans, start your working life at 30, then limit yourself to the same salary as the guy that flips burgers and smokes weed all day.

[–]199639 9 points10 points  (10 children)

FYI medical care in the US is free (or can't be refused) if you go to the er and it's an emergency. So we refuse to pay for someone's hypertensive meds that cost $5 a month but we do pay for their $600,000 stroke two years later.

Obama care is a fucking farce and we hate it but the current system is also broken as hell too. You probably end up paying more right now than just covering this basic shit.

[–]mrp3anut 1 point2 points  (3 children)

So basically you are saying that our current level of socialism is expensive so we need more socialism to make it cheaper? The problem with this mentality is that who gets to decide what "sickness" is covered? Is being a completely healthy breeding age female a sickness? Am I required to provide birth control, tampons, and midol to every female in america? How much should the taxpayers expend to keep a morbidly obese land whale alive? It isn't as simple as the "pay for heart meds not heart surgery" trope. If it was only $5 a month the uninsured would just buy the meds, but it isn't which is why this entire argument exists.

[–]199639 5 points6 points  (2 children)

So basically you are saying that our current level of socialism is expensive so we need more socialism to make it cheaper?

Yes. Our current system hits a peak of cost and inefficiency. It's gloriously designed to waste money. Cutting back the socialism or increasing it would both save money. FWIW cutting back socialism means refusing treatment in ER's until proof of capability to pay is found. This means every car accident/gun shot victim/old person found unconscious with a heart attack would not be given first aid unless their wallet and insurance card are found and the policy is verified with the insurer. Right now this care is provided immediately and then later they hospital/paramedics talk about insurance and money. It would be a huge shift in how we treat people and many insured people would be left to die if their card wasn't found with their body.

How much should the taxpayers expend to keep a morbidly obese land whale alive?

Hospitals don't just let someone die in their wards without doing stuff, regardless of bills. A hospital might not give them a cardiac surgery which would mostly cure the issue but they won't just pull the plug and watch them die. So even without you "paying" for it you pay for it. These people spend months on the ICU costing $10k per day. A $5 medication might have prevented this but that wasn't covered so they never got it. It's a stupid waste of money.

Is being a completely healthy breeding age female a sickness?

I don't know what that means. It sounds like you're upset that your premiums also go to cover things like birth control. Considering each birth costs $20k+, and a lifetime of birth control will never be 10% of that, you should be happy they are taking contraception. Again, you're cutting off your nose to spite your face. The only way you won't actually pay for these things is if you have an insurer that only covers males or you completely avoid the insurance industry entirely. Until Obamacare you were allowed to simply not have any insurance at all and cover any bills that come up yourself. However, medical bills are far and away the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US so bear that in mind. If you get hit by a drunk driver you might end up still paying hundreds of thousands out of pocket and never be able to work again. Few people can weather such a scenario.

If it was only $5 a month the uninsured would just buy the meds

You give them far too much credit. Try being more cynical. Many of these people won't even take them if they're free but they have to walk to the pharmacy to get them.

[–]reckttt 1 points1 points [recovered]

Though I agree with you that this system is extremely wasteful, letting the uninsured die is the worst possible way to address this. What if you were in a car accident and you needed blood immediately. Should the hospital let you bleed out wile trying to call the insurance company?

[–]199639 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not advocating for such a system, I was just explaining to the other guy what exactly it would mean if we stopped providing "free" care at ED's.

[–]curiousthis -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

Obama care is a fucking farce

Why is it a farce?

It does two things that were very badly needed:

  1. limit the administrative component of your premium (i.e. insurers must spend most of the money they get in premiums on actual healthcare and not on bonuses to execs).

  2. prevent insurers from refusing to insure anyone for any reason. Prior to obamacare for example, if you had insurance through work, had to visit the emergency room for an actual emergency, then lost your job, you would be denied insurance coverage if you tried to buy it on your own because of that emergency room visit ("pre-existing condition"). Now, they cannot deny you - but they can charge you a lot, which is fair. I would rather pay $800/month in insurance so that I can avoid a $100K bill later. Prior to obamacare I would not be able to do that.

[–]199639 7 points8 points  (2 children)

First of all Obamacare is primarily a tax on healthy young men which transfers wealth to women and the elderly. It requires young men who use no or very little medical care to pay into a system which gives care to expensive women and elderly. Men are not using the care and they do not need it but they are paying for it all. Previously you were able to opt out of this system but that is no longer the case.

Those two features you mentioned are great and were needed. However it continues to involve for-profit insurance companies in this system which is a limp dick half measure. They're a cancer in the health system, all they do is run up costs and provide literally zero benefit for anyone. The insurance companies managed to get this law passed which actually requires all Americans to buy their bullshit product. They are the reason that you pay $52 for 2 aspirin in a hospital and a bag of saline (salt water) is $38. It's a scam, through and through, and they got themselves a mandate that all people have to buy their shit.

[–]curiousthis 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Previously you were able to opt out of this system

You're still able to opt out of it by paying a "fee". I just saw that it almost doubled from 2014.

The annual fee for not having insurance in 2015 is $325 per adult and $162.50 per child (up to $975 for a family).

It's a scam, through and through, and they got themselves a mandate that all people have to buy their shit.

You're more right than you know. Obama actually opposed forcing people to buy insurance but had to give in when he realized that was the only way to get the law to pass.

You may not know this but the he made it easy to opt out by leaving in a very large loophole in the law:

"In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure."

There would also be no liens or levies placed on property for failure to pay.

Instead, the law would allow the government to collect the tax by deducting it from any IRS tax-refund checks or other government payments.

[–]roteroktober 6 points7 points  (93 children)

think about it this way: everybody pays x% into one account. when 1 person gets sick, the overs that are not sick pay his treatment.

since it will never happen that everybody will be sick at the same time and many never get seriously sick it works out in the end.

at the end of the day the insurence companies still make HUGE profits in germany and if you can afford it you can leave the mandatory healthcare and buy private insurence.

If you feel so strongly about it why don't you go to med school, get your 500k worth of student loans, start your working life at 30, then limit yourself to the same salary as the guy that flips burgers and smokes weed all day.

what the fuck is this bullshit? Doctors in germany do not earn the same as burger flippers. however, the doctor pays taxes and fom these taxes the burger flipper will get treatment for whatever heahlth issue he may have, as it should be in a civilized society.

its way better than to live in a coujntry like the USA where getting sick means being bankrupt. or being overcharged by 500% for medical treatment, or to be exploted by the corporations.

If hospitals are guaranteed to get paid regardless of the prices they set, what incentive do they have to set lower prices and operate efficiently?

[–]Trufflesaurus 4 points4 points [recovered]

Are you referencing America here? Because America's hospitals AND health insurance companies over charge by ridiculous amount. The truth of the matter is that anywhere there is Healthcare available there will be a huge markup on the cost. Their health is literally the most important thing to the majority of people.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Supply and demand can drive prices lower (and will, especially as diagnostics prices fall). Price is formed at the margin, it's not a function of how important something is to people.

[–]199639 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Supply and demand can drive prices lower

Healthcare is not a free market, this is part of the reason the prices are so stupid. No competition = no supply/demand interactions.

[–]Ch1pp 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Hospitals have a budget they have to stay under but really the savings don't come from efficiency but from bulk buying. If you have a huge nationalised healthcare system you can say to Pharmaceutical companies "You can supply the whole country if you can do X price" whereas in the US drugs and equipment are sold hospital by hospital with much of the cost passed onto the consumer.

the insurence companies will not pay the hospitals whatever the hospitols want. the corperations that pay the hospitals will make sure that they are not overcharged, you can bet your ass on that.

You are right, here in Eastern Europe tooth extraction with 2 shots of anesthetic costs 15$, without any insurance or paperwork. In the US, that would probably be couple hundred bucks.

Try $800 for starters. Oh, Insurance covers some of that. Americans, next time you go just to SEE your doctor, tell them your self pay. Immediate 30% discount. Why? Insurance companies get that 30%.

[–]BigAl265 6 points7 points  (7 children)

The reason many of our hospitals charge so much is to cover the cost of all the people on Medicare/Medicaid, which doesn't pay the hospitals or doctors even close to what healthcare costs. I worked for one of the nation's largest medical billing companies for several years, trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

There's nothing wrong with that - if it's done voluntarily. The problem is that it's compulsory. I am required to pay for the health insurance of others, and if I don't, a bunch of thugs are going to come to my house and kidnap me at gunpoint.

If it was such a great idea, you wouldn't need to force it on people.

its way better than to live in a coujntry like the USA where getting sick means being bankrupt. or being overcharged by 500% for medical treatment, or to be exploted by the corporations.

The real root of the healthcare problem is the cost. Right now, the UK has the best overall healthcare system in the world. The U.S. has the highest quality care, but it's too expensive and inequitably distributed. In the early 60s, the U.S. was spending about 1/3 the amount of money (public and private combined) per person, adjusted for inflation, as the U.K. is today. Everybody had access to healthcare. We had the best heathcare system in the world; and it was better than the modern UK system because it was cheaper and we had better access.

This was all before the government started massively involving itself and we had a relatively free market system. There is a very strong correlation between the amount the US government is involved in the healthcare system and how expensive it is.

Do the math. Making health insurance compulsory doesn't solve the problem of the cost of healthcare. It's a statist solution to a statist problem, just like the feminist SJW's in the OP's example. It's the only thing statists understand. Feminists do not understand the free market in the sexual marketplace just as statists do not understand the free market in the overall economy.

[–]Manuel_S 6 points7 points  (9 children)

Strange how so much faith is put in corporations by americans. You truly believe it works better if unregulated. We don't trust them so much, or politicians for that matter. They will abuse always when given the chance.

Its a different paradigm. In europe, going bankrupt because of bad health is seen as, quite simply, uncivilized.

Quite the opposite over there. It feels like you enjoy knowing that someone couldn't afford insurance and got crippled or dead because of it. Makes you feel good, because of course it wouldn't happen to you. He should have taken responsibility and so on. There's a lesson in moral for all to see, may the grave not spit his loser ass out again.

Then again, when accident strikes and people fall in trouble, thats when the tune changes.

Best doctors in the world and all that, but I'd still take my chances with any european medical system than in the states.

Don't think I'm going "USA sucks, hooray europe" here; there is great stuff in america.

But you can keep your healthcare and student debt system. They seem abusive systems to us, and so do your marriage laws. I know often you automatically think your system must be always better, but I'll give you an example any TRPer will understand.

Know how a prenup works here? When marrying, there's 3 options: Full communion of property, communion of acquired property, full separation. Done. No challenging afterwards. You only use prenups to protect children you already have. Alimonies to be granted are only in case of need if the spouse doesn't work, and limited. Yes there is child support, but it is capped - it doesn't baloon with your salary. The court does not say you have a earning capacity of X. You have what you have.

Yes being foolish and getting a house together is always going to be a mess, but its not nearly as crippling a system.

You are confused. I don't support the existence of corporations, period, because they are inventions of the state; they do not exist in a free market. The current U.S. healthcare system is a statist system and I do not support it either. It is not free market in any way shape or form.

Besides, just because I support people voluntarily taking care of the poor and sick instead of using violent coercion to take care of them does not mean I enjoy seeing people in anguish. That's a dishonest straw man and you know it.

As far as student loan debt goes, college was also insanely cheap in the US half a century ago. The reason it's not is because the US govt backs student loans, which creates a moral hazard, and therefore colleges have no incentive to control their costs.

If it was such a great idea, you wouldn't need to force it on people.

You have to force it on some people. Some are willing and most will pay just because they don't like to think too deeply about anything and because everyone else pays anyway.

This is how it works with taxes. If you make it completely optional and inform everyone of how optional it is, then no one will pay. The result in the case of federal income tax is that we would have no government, hence no military, and we would be invaded by other countries.

My point is, just because it's more or less forced doesn't make it a bad idea. The forced aspect is necessary to overcome the selfishness at the individual level that would quickly lead to a national crisis.

You can't just force it on some people. Laws apply to everybody, not just certain people.

This is how it works with taxes. If you make it completely optional and inform everyone of how optional it is, then no one will pay. The result in the case of federal income tax is that we would have no government, hence no military, and we would be invaded by other countries.

Having no government does not mean we would not have a way of protecting ourselves from invasion.

My point is, just because it's more or less forced doesn't make it a bad idea. The forced aspect is necessary to overcome the selfishness at the individual level that would quickly lead to a national crisis.

Because the selfishness of the collective is somehow superior to the selfishness of the individual? Who are you to decide whether the selfishness of the individual is immoral or not, so long as he is not initiating force against other individuals?

[–]roteroktober -1 points0 points  (4 children)

There's nothing wrong with that - if it's done voluntarily. The problem is that it's compulsory. I am required to pay for the health insurance of others, and if I don't, a bunch of thugs are going to come to my house and kidnap me at gunpoint.

you can opt out and get private insurence.

why you woule believe that a coperation without any rules would have your best interests in mind is beyond me. you have so little trust in a gov. (i admit, i wouldnt trust the american gov. either) but a coperation in a completely free market, they wouldnt ecxploit you, right? they wouldnt eventually build a monopoly and do whatever the fuck they want for profit.

Getting sick doesn't mean going bankrupt, this is the biggest easily debunk-able trope repeated by supposedly intelligent Europeans on a daily basis. Reading the sob stories on reddit does not provide a realistic view into the reality of US healthcare.

The problem is that NOT ENOUGH people are bankrupted by medical problems. People with insurance such as myself, tend to live in a bubble. I go to John Hopkins for healthcare. Rated by multiple entities as one of the best providers on the planet. Of the top 10 provider on the planet, half or more are located in the US. Because this quality of healthcare is available to many, and the close mindedness of those who have never been destitute, not enough people want complete overhaul.

I personally think single payer is a better model. But only because I am able to look outside of my situation and realize others may not have the same opportunities.

If more Americans were suffering financial problems, political change would be possible. Instead, we have a percentage who gets fucked, and everyone else who is fine and doesn't give a shit. Voters do not want their healthcare model to change, because they aren't getting fucked. At least not enough of them.

The best thing for creating a single payer healthcare system would be if getting sick automatically resulted in bankruptcy. That's not happening to enough people to drive public opinion.

And it really doesn't help when the press finds out that rich foreign politicians are leaving their government run healthcare utopia in Europe or Canada to have surgeries done in the US. That only reinforces the opinions of ignorant voters that socialized healthcare will result in diminished quality.

[–]olican101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where do the tax dollars that pay for this healthcare come from?

where does a company paid insurance scheme come from? (hint, the consumers of that companies product). in fact, it works out cheaper to cut out all the middle men and give everyone a decent level of coverage paid for by taxes.

if you force employers to pay too much or force doctors to charge too little they will either leave and go somewhere else or they will never start their endeavor.

Yes, that TOTALLY happened in Europe. Not like we have medical scientists coming from all over the world... /s

If you feel so strongly about it why don't you go to med school, get your 500k worth of student loans, start your working life at 30, then limit yourself to the same salary as the guy that flips burgers and smokes weed all day.

OR, doctors could be paid a decent wage, just like they are in the UK?

Obamacare is a fucking stupid, ridiculous law. Making one group pay more to fund another is just Marxism lite. And this isn't about "poor people having insurance" as the short sighted, ignorant freeloaders say. We had insurance for poor people and childres, it's called medicaid, started half century ago. We also have "free" insurance for old people called Medicare. Obamacare is some bullshit law that forces one set of people to subsidize others whether they want to or not (don't give me this bullshit that that's what regular insurance does, because before you didn't have to fucking buy it if you didn't want to). \

Absolutely fucking sickening, unamerican, and unfuckingconstitutional. If not for Justice Roberts turning his back on Americans, this dumbass law would have been flushed down the toilet.

God can only hope King v. Burwell goes the way of the American people. The majority of the country doesn't like the law or want it, no matter how much the doofus in Washington triumphs his shit achievement.

Bullshit. I should not have to pay for another person's insurance. You know who should have to pay for ta person's insurance? THEY FUCKING SHOULD!

I'm going to put on my old-person hat and explain the way insurance works: When you buy health insurance, the insurer figures out ("guesses") their potential liability and puts you into a group. And all the members of that group subsidize each other.

Have health insurance through your work? Congratulations. You're paying for Bob in accounting who lives on fast food and cola, refuses to listen to his doctor and ends up having to go to the emergency room about every year. You'll end up paying for his hip replacement and stent/bypass surgery too.

Don't have health insurance through work, but have bought your own? Congratulations: you are a member of the group that consists of everyone with your demographics who have purchased their own insurance, and you're paying for supporting the sickest members of that group.

(don't give me this bullshit that that's what regular insurance does, because before you didn't have to fucking buy it if you didn't want to).

You don't have to buy health insurance now if you don't want to either. But it will cost you :

The annual fee for not having insurance in 2014 is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child (up to $285 for a family), or it’s 1% of your household income above the tax return filing threshold for your filing status.

Consider it the cost of doing business.

Feminism in the 1970s was pushed by Marxist influenced women, but contemporary feminism is an independent movement and has more to do with appealing to the shitty part of women's personalities than communist principles.

If there was no Marxism we'd still see feminism in some form or another.

We'd still see women pushing for special privileges over and above what men have because the government has replaced individual men as the protector and provider.

While most of us here, if not all, know how much feminism negatively affects our society, I think it is a mistake to place exclusive blame on the movement for the perils we face today. The reason why we have a problem supporting our aging populations is that a good amount of our tax dollars/euros go directly to interests for state loans. Where politicians all over the world fail in fixing the economic troubles, there seems to be evidence of wrongful care for the economy. Until we discover the core economic issues lying before us, we can't hope to cure ourselves of these perils even in a world without feminism. The way things are set up right now we will need a continuous growth in population and subsequent inflation of our currency to stave off bankruptcy. It won't even last that long should this actually happen.

TL;DR: Even though feminism has a negative effect on societal cohesion, our economic troubles stem from a wrongful understanding, and use, of our economies. No political wing will be able to amend this without first realising the core issues such as modern banking, inflation, and bubble-economies.

[–]olican101 0 points1 point  (4 children)

It doesn't. "Feminism" is not a bad thing. Women claiming to be feminists to gain superiority are a bad thing. Think of it this way. One is a black man, fighting for his rights. The other, is a black man that has painted his face literally the colour black screaming "if you don't give me free stuff you're racist." actual Feminists hate these people as much as you or i.

What you should keep in the back of your head is the following:

That study was done by a neo-liberal think tank and it's sole purpose is to weaken the market for employees and lower wages in general, and for graduates from the STEM-field in specific.

There has been a neverending repetition of the myth of the "Fachkräftemangel" - a scarcity of qualified employees - for the last years here in Germany, which is complete and utter bullshit. We have more than enough qualified people here, but the problem is: Those aren't willing to work for the money companies are willing to offer them.

After the government under the leadership of chancelor Gerhard Schröder succeeded in installing what Schröder himself called "Europe's best low-wage labour market" at the World Economic Forum 2005 in Davos, via the "Agenda 2010", they are now targeting STEM-jobs.

They already tried before, when they introduced special visas for STEM-specialists from i.e. India, but blatantly failed, because no Indian who's willing to leave his country to work elsewhere would come to Germany, where he would be paid significantly less than in i.e. the UK.

They want to over-saturate the market to push people into the weaker negotioating position via more immigration and allowing asylum seekers to pick up work. If you look closely, they have already started with that in some places and it comes up in the news more often now, justified with reducing the costs for their stay here. That's some serious machiavellinism going on there.

the standard in germany is very high. for example they look at what car you drive way more than in other countries because its the biggest status symbol in germany

[–]Deresetese 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Your example can't really be used as an example.

Germans are obsessed with cars, it's not simply the biggest status symbol. Under right circumstances it can be the only relevant one.

So long as you are not homeless (even not working can be ignored to a degree as it still does yield an acceptable income, if you are not working for a short amount of time and some income if you are not working for an extended period of time), having a good car is often seen as the only factor in status.

This is caused by public transportation being used mostly by young people and to a degree poor people and the german's history with producing cars.
Also, because the Autobahn doesn't have a speed limit, being able to drive at high speed has a totally different level of appeal.

As for your other point, the alphas being rarer, what do you base this on ? It may very well be true but I can't see any reason as to why this would be the case.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, it's because no one flirts in certain European countries and there's abundance of hot girls, so they don't really feel special.

In my country, no one hits on girls outside the bar scene and not before downing two or three beers. Daytime flirting does not exist, it's simply not a thing. On top of that, men here are quite timid - not effeminate, quite masculine in fact, but their behaviour is so inhibited - I assume a lot of it is because of feminism - hell, when I grew up the idea of complimenting a girl makes me anxious because I'm scared she'll get offended. (Yes, I genuinely think a girl will be offended if I compliment her.)

So you've got a country where men have internalized flirting as being disrespectful and borderline sexual harassment, and literally got half a country's population starved for attention regardless of how attractive they are.

I assume it's a similar situation in Germany but maybe not as extreme.

Berlin is not germany, Berlin is international.
Any nationalism, which is not all that present in germany anyway, is non existant there.
Basically Berlin is the epitome of every problem that germany faces.
No nationalism, high cost of living, multi culturalism, degrees that become increasingly worthless and thus people who either don't aim for any education or simply can't capitalise on it.
Berlin is full of people who have no future, they're either immigrants that don't speak german or germans wihout sufficient education.
This and other reasons lead to berlin being drastically different from every other part of germany.

The career does not make the man. You can present yourself as a "disposable lighter repairman" and if you play it right women are still going to fall head over heels in love, I guarantee it's just a matter of calibrating your game and generating attraction. I can't imagine the social influence of German women to be that hardwired into their minds.

What is hardwired into her brain are the primal attraction switches that persisted since the dawn of man. Not to mention, as we all know, women are calibrated to follow their emotions before logic. Sure you're gonna hear "I'm not gonna sleep with a man unless I'm married to him and he's a millionaire" but as soon as a confident, carefree alpha swoops in her eyes widen and said thoughts suddenly vanish.

Bingo, you can be a self-employed wannabe writer and still pull women in Germany if you can present yourself. Most engineers etc. in Germany are wimps and easily turned into BB while she enjoys the attention of an alpha (or as is the case with many women that I know, a hung black immigrant).

That was a real thing up to the 80s I'd say. Japanese cars were these tiny ugly POS and American cars were just fucking bad in the 70s/80s. There was a real gray market (cars brought overseas to here) for Mercedes in that time.

But my experience with German cars after the mid-80s models is that mechanically they're usually very solid -- a big thing decades back was the doors closed every so pleasingly, something I think the others mastered in the meantime --- but also often way overcomplicated and overpriced to fix and the electrical engineering is shit.

IDK about the other brands, but from what I seen of the GPS/radio/etc in Mercedes, they're usually garbage too in interface and at least 5 years ago, were still stuck in the 90s mentality compared to what you can get in a GM.

Now don't me wrong, I went over 250km/h on the autobahn (when farther away from cities and empty enough, getting more and more rare) and the average middle-of-the-road Audi/Mercedes/BMW/Porsche will beat any other country's average car for feel and handling at those speeds for realistic highway driving. Shit like a Ford Escort feels like metal coffin on wheels when its wheezing at 180kph.

But other than that consideration, which just doesn't apply to most of the world, I prefer one of the Japanese big 3 for total ownership for small/medium cars. And something American if I had hauling to do.

Says who? Some guy who once got XXX miles in his <insert cheap ass car here>? You'll hear those stories about every car manufacturer, so anecdotes don't really mean anything.

German cars (Porsche, Mercedes, BWM, Audi, shit even VW) consistantly win best in class for luxury and performance. The only Japanese luxury car manufacturers you would see even make the list are Lexus and Inifinity, and they are almost always outclassed by other german cars. Go ahead and do a google search for "top 10 luxury cars" or "best luxury cars in class" and count the Japanese & German cars you see.

But it won't be. I'll tell you now it's the mouthbreathers and the bottom dregs of society who come over, do fuck all and claim benefits all day while letting their kids run in idiotic gangs who have and will continue to come over.

money is merely a proxy for value, and value is intrinsic in materials and in labour, especially skilled labour. The problem with EVERY economic system is someone doesn't want to be induced by force to work or to lose material owned value.

That's not how it went down. Hitler had to protect German minorities in former German cities. After WW1 germany was ripped apart and at some point the germans who then lived in a new country became victims of assaults. Especially along the French and Czechia borders. There is a documentary called "the greatest story never told" which is about 6 hours. I've never really watched it completely only nearly 2 hours but it gives you more insight as to what happend in the time before WW2.

Russia is doing this today, no?

The landscape has shifted, everything is war by proxy now. There is no Treaty of Versaille to hamstring and handcuff Russia the same way Germany was. Perhaps if the powers that be, laced Russian propaganda with racial tensions, people might have the same unchecked gut reaction.

The same way they do if you talk to them about Germany and WWII today, by presenting a narrative they haven't heard ever because "all the historians have looked into it already"... (where's the test samples from each camp? jury is still out, yet we believe wholeheartedly that millions died in gas chambers... 6 million jews also died in WWI (New York Times printed it), but no one seems to care? hmm...)

Despite that, the EU is falling apart slowly but surely.
With the integration of failing countries and the failing of countries like greece, the EU has to make drastic decisions (e.g. kicking them out, which could never happen because nobody would get a majority for that).
Having the same currency for those states that are economically strong and those that basically have no economic value can not work in the long run.
The directions of the EU to accept immigrants from other EU countries and refugees from outside the EU only enhance this effect.
Furthermore, the stronger states have to help the failing ones in order to prevent their own economy from crashing.
All of this is weakening the economy to a point where it will collapse eventually.

If you're a young European person: Learn an Asian language (Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, ...) and prepare to move to that country after you've acquired a few years of work experience.

Hey, Turkey itself only became Turk from around the 14th century when a bunch of eastern steppe Turkic tribes invaded the place and pushed out the mostly Greek speaking populace or inter-mingled with them. Expect the same to happen to Germany - and no, it will no longer be Germany. No one looks to Turkey and thinks of Hellenic culture, Byzantium and Asia Minor unless one is a historian.

importing immigrants

this is what I don't understand. I see people talking about how countries are importing tons of immigrants, but my experience tells me otherwise.

I'm from India. My brother, who is a software engineer, has been trying to get a H1B visa for a while because he thinks he can do better than his current employer. He has been trying, for the past 3 years, and yet his visa keeps getting rejected by immigration department.

Indians who pay taxes, work honest jobs, keep their heads down, and become contributing members of the society they immigrate to are denied visas.

On the other hand, degenerate Mudslimes are imported by the dozens?

For some weird-ass reason, apart from the conservatives (well, and the common folk) the idea to compensate for the loss of manpower by allowing more migration is pretty popular.

The fact that people rather go to the US if they want to make it big with their knowledge and skills is usually ignored.

slavery requires a high population, always expanding.

It helps slavery, same as raising the birth rate.

This is the master plan of all countries with a central bank. The core of the red pill is always economics. It rules all and is acting via deliberate layered strategies, not accidents, upon marriage, sexual relationships and laws governing what is assault, rape, consent, powers of police to search, rights of accused & accuser in courts - everything.

  • Sweden that is the least Racist country in the world

I'm saying that Sweden is literally being labeled the rape capital of Europe, because of your precious multiculturalism.

[–]olican101 0 points1 point  (4 children)

It's being named the rape capital because more people report rapes. Not because there ARE more rapes. This is a good thing. Not a bad thing.

[–]IlliterateIllyrian 1 points1 points [recovered]

Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.

What a coincidence.

Hamstering media explains: Rather than doing something about the problem of violence and rape, Swedish politicians, public authorities and media do their best to explain away the facts. Here are some of their explanations:

  • Swedes have become more prone to report crime.
  • The law has been changed so that more sexual offences are now classed as rape.
  • Swedish men cannot handle increased equality between the sexes and react with violence against women (perhaps the most fanciful excuse). http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/5195/sweden-rape

Face it, your country is going to shit and there is no end in sight. Sorry if you're a native Swede.

[–]olican101 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Crime is 300% more likely to be reported and rape is 1,472% more likely to be reported. What's your point?

And yes, the law has been changed to increase what is classed as rape. Multiple times.

I am not from Sweden but I have been. And it's a whole lot better than any other country I've been to.

[–]IlliterateIllyrian 1 points1 points [recovered]

Do you realize how ridiculous that sounds? Why would a whole demographic of people just decide to begin to report crime at a huge rate like that? Do you really think small changes to laws would be the cause of such a dramatic increase? Stop believing the media; start believing in research and statistics.

I am not from Sweden but I have been. And it's a whole lot better than any other country I've been to.

[–]CharlieIndiaShitlord 100 points101 points  (4 children)

Just a small anecdote here.

Years ago a Mosque opened up in Calgary, AB. Very early one morning, they started up with their usual 'call to prayer', with loudspeakers, at about 4am.

For about 10 minutes this continued, at which point an unidentified pickup truck drove by and blew away the loudspeakers with a shotgun.

The police were called, they took a statement, but there weren't really any leads they could follow up on.

The Mosque replaced the loudspeakers. The next morning, 4am sharp, the call to prayer once again commenced, blaring through the loudspeakers, once again waking up half the neighbourhood, a good portion of whom fall into the classification of 'redneck'.

10 minutes later, truck, shotgun, broken loudspeakers.

Thus ends the last time the Mosque had a call to prayer in Calgary, AB.

Respect peoples cultures, but don't piss off the natives.

[–]NotRoosterTeeth 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I live in NC and somthing I will forever remember in my life is the UNC Bell Tower controversy. People talk about the media changing stories to create more controversy, this is an extreme example. Just going to add I am very open to religions practicing the services of their religion, you will see below why I belive what I belive in the situation.

Typical News Report on the Bell Tower Controversy: Anti-Muslim Rednecks in North Carolina are trying to make it so Muslims can not practice their religious services.

To the best of my knowledge this is what happened : UNC says Muslim students can practice in a Cristian Bell Tower so they can seem open minded and religiously accepting. (Not a bad move on there part, they want to look good in the community). The problem is that is was a Cristian bell tower and if they had their services, the other religions that practiced there wouldn't be able to which is a large problem on Saturday and Sunday keeping in mind a large majority of the student base is Cristian or Jewish.

TL;DR : People should be able to practice their religion but not physically disturb others while they do it. Also the media blows situations involving stuff like this out of the water, be careful of the information you read.

[–]CharlieIndiaShitlord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always question the media narrative, it is usually bent. Like yourself, I'm fine with people doing what they want to do, practice their beliefs as they see fit. The caveat being that your actions can't infringe upon others.

If you immigrate to another culture, it is upon you to assimilate into that culture, not the other way around. There is a sane middle ground to be had, we just don't get to see it often enough.

[–]DaphneDK 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Immigrants from Africa and the Middle East are not just desperately fleeing whatever conditions, and willing to go anywhere. They're very much aware of and discerning as to which country they want to go to, and deliberately chose countries with a high level of welfare. EU agencies have documented this quite thoroughly. There are even Facebook groups and various Internet sites dedicated to listing all the pros & cons of each destination and the immigrants surf these on their smart phones. This means European nations with generous welfare states attract those that want to benefit from the welfare states, whereas places like Canada/USA attracts those with ambitions that want to make use of the opportunity to work hard and make life for themselves.

Many of the immigrants to Europe are Christians however. Both those from Syria and those from Africa.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well no. The trouble comes from what writen in Quran , especially surah 5 and 9.

Educated muslim are able to distance themselves from their religion but under educated muslims, that are also made fragile by their economical situation are prone to be problematic.

And the problem is that the european goverments are actually importing mass of low educated musilm, so guess what will follow.

[–]cariboo_j 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah Islam followed literally is problematic. It's the only major religion I'm aware of that is also a political system. Separation of church and state is pretty much impossible for a devout Muslim.

I'm just saying the educated westernized Muslims (in Canada at least) aren't usually a problem because they are able to rationalize away the more extreme parts of the Quran. And perhaps they are made complacent and have more to lose because of their high paying jobs. They're peaceful in spite of their religion, not because of it.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

German here. The lower class has many children, since the state benefits are quite good, but the middle class or above start very late or never at all.

There's no reason for any woman to not have children. Great universal healthcare, guaranteed time off (up to 3 years), you may pick up your old job, low costs (if you're good with money), no college fund needed. Economic reasons my ass. It's probably one of the best countries to have children in.

[–]erplaint 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I have never understood this whole "economic reasons" line of thought. It is a given that it is actually the poor who have the most children! Basically, women higher up in society become, what were they called... "too posh to push"? As in their own person is way too precious for them to carry around a baby and then give birth to it because "it's uncomfortable". It is really a cultural problem, not an economic one, but no one wants to address the elephant in the room because it might hurt some feefees.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The elephant in the room is that having and raising children sucks according to many. As soon as birth control is available, smart people opt out.

Yeah, right? It's so comfortable, yet no one does it. Except immigrants, who account for like 50% of the babies. I can't blame them.

Women here don't exactly ride the carousel, but they do stuff like carrer well into their 30s when they first start thinking about children. I know plenty of women who are childless and always will be. None of them have ever mentioned feminist stuff btw. But even women in a good relationship, like the girlfriends of some of my friends, don't get children. You have a woman with no good job, a decent BB at their hand and they still don't get pregnant.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (5 children)

Yes, but culturally Germany is NOT a child-friendly place. They do not worship children like we do in the States. Children are annoying bores to much of the educated elite in Germany.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 13 points14 points  (3 children)

This.

We have had the replacement rate gap for years, and there have been loads of articles on the subject. One I read compared the situation to the US and it was pointed out that when families have more children than they can afford with their current living standards, they simply... accept a drop in their living standard. Gee, what a novel idea, accepting that you have to make sacrifices for children! But tell that to our middle class families.

It's funny, because leftists usually point out that it's so much easier to reconcile having a job and a family in Scandinavia or in France (ignoring the fact that France only has its replacement rates because African immigrants compensate for the shortcomings from native French people); when the actual problem is (a) that being childless is entirely acceptable and even quite normal and (b) even couples who actually want children are entirely happy with 1, 2 tops. And since more kids usually means a hit to your living standard...

I can look around and it certainly doesn't get better. My 4 grandparents had 8 children combined, and this postwar generation was pretty much the last one that was above the minimal replacement rate. The postwar babyboomers who became parents in the 80s and 90s already were below replacement IIRC - at least when looking around me it looks like that (most couples only had 2 children, and some - like my uncle, an aunt, or friends of my parents only 1 or even none at all); and it only got worse - my long-term friends and I are in our 30s by now, and I can count the number of children we collectively have on the fingers of one hand. Some don't want children, some are latebloomers (read: have been notorious incels for most of their lives) and just got into their first relationships by now, some didn't find the right partner so far. It's definitely fucked up (and the progressive post 68-ideology that has permeated the mainstream didn't really help either).

just take a look at the situation in 2030. a huge, HUGE, wave of people suddenly about to going into pension. and these people are currently working and contributing, yet the welfare in germany is running on very thin ice.

in 2030, germany will have much less money will be available (no more babyboomers paying taxes) and much more money needed (thanks to the umlagefinanzierte pension system). its gonna be an economic disaster, and the current immigrants coming over the Mediterranean sea are only adding to the social cost.

I bank on

  • raising the retirement age so the active workforce:rentier-ratio remains sustainable
  • mechanization of the workforce (i.e. machines instead instead of menial laborers)
  • Fortress Europe when it comes to barely (or non-)contributing immigrants

The problem is that the left screwed practically everything up in that regard (and the further left they are, the more oblivious they are to the consequences of their politics): they are basically for lowering retirement ages, their education politics are terrible (German federal states that have been dominated by social democrats lag 2-3 years behind those that have been dominated by conservatives for decades) which means that they produce worse students who in turn are less capable to take on high-qualification jobs (i.e. the only jobs that will reliably be available in the future), and of course feelz are most important for them when it comes to immigration ("but we have to help those poor people!").

Because people don't want to have and raise kids. As soon as safe birth control is introduced, birth rates decrease.

[–]2popthatpill 64 points65 points  (4 children)

Women don't care if their country gets overrun with foreigners. All women care about is getting into the harems of the top guys, whether they're locals or foreign conquerors. As far as women are concerned, one is as good as the other.

Patriotism is a guy thing.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (0 children)

They don't give a fuck about anything other than themselves. Men vote for some ideological reason such as "who would be best for the country" but most women vote based on personal feelings. You hit the nail on the head.

[–]RedInIzzy 77 points78 points  (22 children)

More skilled immigrants? From where? Most of Europe is filled with the bottom rung that came running through the open doors after the colonial era passed.

This means importing more people who will want free stuff and have dubious agendas. They'd have to be stupid to do that.

Hopefully controls will be placed upon weapons and the knowledge behind them, seeing as the worst countries for the 3rd worldization are nuclear.

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (12 children)

This is what any sane person knows, but can't say because race card. A politician from in my country actually said this in more PC terms and was on his way becoming the prime minister. He was completely demonized in the media, with dubious comparisons to Hitler and other dictators. It was completely ridiculous.

He never had the chance to put his policies into practice because he was shot before election time...

After his death, the left parties took a sharp right turn, and basically validates some of his ideas. Before this man, it was possible for foreign immigrants to leech of welfare, without even speaking Dutch or making an effort to learn Dutch!!

Pim is a really interesting character. I wish more gay activists would take a stand against Islam.

It's a beautiful thing watching SJW types try to maneuver around the fact that Islam is inherently hateful when trying to defend it and confronted with the Islamic policy regarding LGBT rights.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

He was great. You should have seen the guy debate against the PC politicians. Just pure logic and deduction, laced with bit of humour, the public was just eating out of his hand. Compared with the retarded emotional appeals of the other politicians (vote for us, we'll give you free shit!!), he truly was one of a kind. He also trolled a female journalist, by saying that she should go back to the kitchen. The media tried to make a fuss out of this, but no one really gave a shit.

His homosexuality really was a great trump card against the SJW types.

[–]CharlieIndiaShitlord 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Not that anybody notices, but this is happening in all the predominantly white countries. You have to look at the big picture. Social engineering, feminism, and the media have all led us by the nose to where we are now. Low birth rates in the population create a vacuum that needs to be filled.

Our governments, that are controlled by a rich elite, create vast incentives at taxpayers cost, for other races of people to move in and take over large parts of society. This causes wages to go down making them more profits at our expense. It creates a divide and conquor strategy to control the people. We waste so much time fighting each other and ignoring the real enemy, the elite themselves.

At the current trend, the white race could become an endangered species. Countries like Sweden, which are natively white, are being invaded at an incredible rate because of government policy and white people will soon be a minority in their own country.

[–]Endorsed ContributorInvalidity 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Double the supply of workers with feminism. I don't even believe the plummeting birth rate was an intended effect of their direction, but it's still functioning; they can bring in migrants to do the work.

The rich are intelligent, they want the money now, not later. It's a big "fuck you" to progress and society as a whole.

[–]Mister_Shitlord_2U 19 points20 points  (1 child)

What they really want is power. Money is just the vehicle that gets it for them. The richest people on the planet have more money than they could ever possibly spend. Once you have aquired that much your power hits a plateau.

So to gain even more power you have to take it away from others by making them poorer, by weakening them. Now the game isn't so much to gain money, but to take it from others. Its hard to fight someone when you are so busy just trying to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head.

Intelligent maybe, but certainly not wise. They're very cleverly destabilizing society and making a huge profit from that, if this is intentional, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a revolution in one or two decades. That revolution might well be aimed at the 1% (or the 0.1%).

If I was an amoral rich guy, I'd prefer to make slightly less money now to avert the possible pitchforks in my future. That would be the wise thing to do.

I generally avoid this topic because it is inherently a touchy subject, but one thing the stormfront nuts point out a lot which I think holds up a bit is that it appears only western countries are really pushed to "embrace diversity".

The sheer arrogance of it all is also interesting. Essentially the super-inclusive left are declaring that European countries (and by default, culture) are naturally superior and as such they must be open to including people from other countries into this superior culture.

You rarely if ever see a SJW demanding Japan, Korea or Egypt take in more migrants. Don't have time to dig but this was the best article I could dig up.

I believe the incident in 1986 that they briefly reference was when the UN asked Japan to take in some war refugees, and the Prime Minister said something to the effect of "fuck off, Japan will remain a one race nation".

I may be mixing this up with another incident or even another country, so take that with a massive grain of salt.

The biggest spoiled children of the group. They are only wealthy because of the paper currencies.

At the current trend, the white race could become an endangered species.

Here in the US, it's the blacks, hispanic, Muslims having all the kids. It takes a young, loving, upper class, married white couple to just produce 1 to 2 kids. Like you have to be in an elite class to have a fucking baby with white people when others are popping them out like no tomorrow.

Others don't wait until they're 10000% secure and ready to have a child because you'll never really be. Yes, some non white female groups would have under age pregnancies (under 18) which end up always being in the lower class of society because their late teens are the golden age for schooling. But the white class, wow, completely the other way, thinking age 35 is a good time to start a family were they're lucky to even have 1 to a black, Hispanic or Muslim 3.

[–]DannyDemotta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wouldnt strictly blame "the elites". Plenty of immigrant minorities (Indian, Korean, Russian in particular) are making a killing in America off the backs of (Liberal) White complacency and laziness. People too busy worrying about the "rigged" system to start a business - so immigrants happily do it for them (construction, cleaning, convenience, all of the above). Or they do start a business, overpay people, insist on local sourcing, etc etc, and go out of business. Boo hoo.

That article about Mengele is one of the coolest things I've ever read. Who, even today with molecular genetics and genome scans and all sorts of crazy IVF technology, could induce women to give birth to blond, blue-eyed twins? How in the hell did this 1940s-era doctor do this genetic engineering fifty years ago??

[–]antariusz 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Artificially inseminate brazilian women with sperm from a blong haired blue eyed man known for having twins.

It's not "complicated" and it's not really "genetic engineering" more so than what farmers have been doing with their plants for thousands of years.

edit: if you think "Pedro" is the father of Jesus, even though his wife Consuela never cheated on him... well... "the test results are in, you are not the father" It's just Alpha Fucks being a little too obvious, you have to be pretty beta to believe that these children are "genetically engineered" from their own fathers... it's not like he was doing genetic manipulation on the father's sperm.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

All I know is from a cursory reading, but there are a few problems with that: 1) the twin thing is a persistent effect, existing to the present day, 2) how did Mengele get fresh sperm from the blond-haired, blue-eyed man "known for having twins"? it's 1960s Brasil, 3) if he did manage to get fresh sperm, how could he possibly artificially inseminate a large portion of a small town? 4) why would he bother with already-pregnant women?

I'm not saying that Mengele did or did not do whatever it is he's claimed to have done, I'm just saying that your explanation doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

[–]antariusz 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Alternatively, mad scientist practices genetic manipulation decades before the rest of the world discovers the technology... Or Chad Thundercock visits a small town in Brazil and many women fuck and have kids with tall attractive blonde man passing through occasionally rather than the local "boring" providers from the local population.

How much blue pill conditioning do you need to believe that these women simply didn't cuckold their men with attractive German tourists. That you're willing to believe Nazi scientists instead performed experiments 30 years later. Despite there being zero evidence that that nazi scientist lived there.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Cuckoldry doesn't actually happen all that often, at a rate of 1-2%.

I find it not entirely implausible that a Nazi mad scientist obsessed with twins managed to discover an environmental factor which induces women to twin at a rate far higher than normal. On the other hand, it could just be a founder effect.

[–]antariusz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I've talked about this many times in the red pill, but early studies in the 60s/70s that showed 1-3% (among white married couples) were massively flawed and slanted to provide the lowest numbers possible. Only when it was completely impossible for the child to be the father's, was paternity disputed with blood typing. Using genetic testing on random groups of people the rate is higher. With non-married couples it's higher, with "poor" (aka average) people it's higher.

If you are white, suburban, in rural michigan in the late 60s, with a good income, it's 3%

If you're black, poor, living in the ghetto, and suspect your girlfriend of cheating, it's 30%.

Very recent studies from Mexico and Canada say 10%

How often do you think poor rural brazilians decide to fuck european tourists?

Hypergamy does not care.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay. I have no reason to doubt your numbers, but it should be noted that the towns purportedly visited by Mengele were, and are, nearly wholly populated by persons of German extraction. In other words, it's a town of white, intact German families who just happen to live in Brazil. I suspect that, prior to the ongoing cultural deterioration which began in the sixties, Blacks and the poor had similar rates. It's a very highly politicized topic, no matter your political leanings. Not being particularly susceptible to cuckoldry, myself, I never much bothered to care.

On closer inspection, I think it's probably founder effect.

[–]sqrt7744 7 points8 points  (4 children)

As a medical doctor in Germany I am acutely aware of this. The system is rotten to the core. Taxation and spending on garbage is crippling the productive sector of the economy, destroying potential productive jobs and forcing people to work more to maintain a decent standard of living.. This means both people in a relationship must work which leaves little time for child rearing. Kindergartens are woefully scarce and waiting lists are long. The problem in virtually all of the instances is the state interfering and preventing the free market from operating efficiently. The solution which practically everyone seems blind to, is to get the state out of the way. Reduce taxes. Let kindergartens operate like any other business - no central planning. Get rid of the (newly introduced) minimum wage which makes hiring an elderly nanny prohibitively expensive. In a free market without labor laws wages rise naturally, there are plenty of historical examples. Guess what quotas do? Pay more people to do the same work. Products become more expensive across the board so your Euro doesn't buy as much anymore. It should be possible for one parent to support the family as it often was until 1950-60. The solution is not political, it is getting rid of politicians.

Birth rates are due to the intelligent people realizing life will be too hard to raise children.

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (14 children)

I have to say, that there is no long term solution to this problem, other than a complete rollback to marriage 1.0, which will never happen as long as woman have a voting right. Repealing women's suffrage completely would be the only long term solution. A couple decades ago, were woman had the same opportunities wise, the birthrate wasn't this low. After the state and the jobmarket started to pander to woman only, more woman than ever were getting university education. You know the story, it is the same in the US.

Men are devalued, because they aren't the only possible provider anymore. Woman earn even more than men in the under 30 demograpic. But my goverment still tries to push the same 77 cents to a dollar argument.

Men and boys are dehumanized in the education system, female behavior is the norm, boys being boys are treated like defective females.

Oh and German woman are shit, looks wise and mentally fucked up. Add this to what was stated in the OP.

tl;dr misandric family/divorce laws females get pandered to exclusively at any level of gouverment and in education fucked up females (either mentally or physically) men are feminised, due to lack of male spaces and male role models

Given the professional working world is geared up to prioritize women, isn't it obvious that middle class women are preferring those routes?

Of all the girls I've known over the past year or so, I could only count a handful of them with any decent standard of education. And most of those wouldn't even consider a long term relationship despite barrelling towards being 30.

However, a lot of the lower-class or working-class (however you want to put it) women are definitely maintaining that strategy of beta bucks.

Given the quality of women that men have available to them, the choice of poor slut who wants a free ride or bust leads to things like MGTOW.

Personally if I was in the market for an LTR, a girl who has never had a job and been looked after by Big Brother State wouldn't even be on the list.

Evolution my friend, weak things will disappear and be replaced by stronger things, stronger as in stronger, not as in moral or logical or right.

edit : why would you even want to save a feminist country from collapsing, they wouldn't do shit for you if the roles were reversed, and empires come and go, plague, religion, communism, now it's feminism, and it's not good or bad, it's natural. You'd think the cause of the regress in birth rate is obvious, we can see it's because men don't want to get fucked by having children, but the vast majority of the population are either betas or feminists, and frankly, they don't deserve to be saved, the matrix attains a point when it should be restarted, wiped out and recreated, it's not the first or the second or even the last time.

I've heard that by the end of this century, Muslims will be the majority of the population in Germany.

The Muslim patriarchal family structure will reproduce faster, immigrate faster, and eventually dominate German culture.

Just stick to TRP principles and take care of yourself. And then when it's time to go, it's time to go, you didn't think you would live forever did you? I don't see why it matters. You're a man, you were always expected to take care of yourself and work as long as you could, what changed? The fact that you might get paid more and valued more if there are less people around?

I see the "population decline" posited as a boogeyman on TRP quite a bit, and what is really being said is that the "wrong" people are being born. In this case, wrong usually being non-white people. I mean world population is increasing, to the tune of about 10 billion by 2050.

Ignoring all the social/political posturing about those numbers, the simple fact is that ecologically they aren't sustainable at anything approaching the American standard of living. The current population couldn't be sustained at the American standard of living. Strangely, one of the few benefits to come out of feminism might be it's reduction of birthrate and population.

Most of the conversation people have on this subject boils down to a bunch of people fighting over who gets to wear the captain's hat, while the ship itself is sinking. Basically, the kind of shit women do.

[–]trplurker 5 points5 points [recovered]

he current population couldn't be sustained at the American standard of living.

Actually it could, quite easily. The technology already exists for this and has for years. We could comfortably fit 10x our current population on this planet and still have plenty of empty space.

People really can't grasp how big our landmass's are. The #1 biggest problem isn't living space but food, which has already been solved by advanced agriculture techniques, we can now grow over and order of magnitude more food per unit of land then at anytime in our history. We grow so much more food then we need that we end of throwing large quantities of it away. We've had near unlimited energy for decades, it just wasn't politically acceptable.

The liberal myth of "overpopulation" is a bad joke now.

I see you skipped right to the ad hominem.

Plenty of data available regarding each of those categories. Every time I read a liberal "only 2 billion people can live on the Earth", deep inside their methodology they always, without fail, adopt 1900's era technology. They assume the earths population must exist under the following situations.

Organic farming, which is a nice sounding word for old style 1900's era farming techniques.

Solar / Wind / Tidal power (wind and tidal are just results of Solar power on a planet scale), this is the big limiter that's used. By only counting the incoming light you can place a hard cap on the total population that is impossible to overcome.

Only living in existing flat locations without building new or expanding current cities. Another big limiter, we only live on a small fraction of this planets available surface area, less half of a percent.

When each problem is tackled using technology, suddenly it stops being a problem. Instead of forcing people to use ancient farming techniques, we embrace advances methods and technologies. It raises food production per unit of land mass by an order of magnitude (that's 10x btw). We plan our cities around manufacturing hubs and try to spread them out vs piling everything into single locations. And finally we stop chasing the black hold that is wind / solar / tidal, the universe won't change physics and the laws of thermodynamics in order to allow us to only use those. Nuclear has been around a long time, and Gen IV fission reactors are now being researched and developed in non-progressive non-western nations. Fusion has been in the works for a long ass time, and similiar to Fission, they have finally gotten away from the progressive jobs program of government only research and into private hands where they are now a dozen different approaches being tested and developed.

In the 60's the USA ran an experimental molten salt reactor that utilized the thorium fuel chain. The thorium fuel chain burns 99% of fissile material vs uranium 1%, don't produce plutonium and use's a fuel material that's abundant and extremely cheap. These were the reasons the US government decided not to go with it and shelved all the data after the experiment ran it's course, they needed the plutonium for weapons development and the belief was that oil would be a better energy to base the economy on.

Anyhow I can provide you a shit ton of material addressing each of these area's, but you would neither read them nor listen to any argument I presented. Your still stuck in the Nature = good, Humans (especially men) = Bad mentality. You should volunteer to put your money where your mouth is, follow your espoused beliefs and solve the worlds "overpopulation" problem by at least one.

Being physically capable of maintaining exponential growth is not the same as cultivating said growth to it's most efficient state.

By limiting energy consumption to our energy "income" from the sun, it allows us to re-purpose the other energy assets we have. Theoretically to enable space exploration and colonization. Something we do not require a large population to achieve.

[–]1sardinemanR 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Lower populations=wealthier due to more resources per person.

If you want to see poor, go to a high population area...like India. That is poor. All the people there don't make them rich.

That's great and all but Japan is one of the sexist countries in the world... the feminist movement is much smaller and very different there than the modern feminism of western countries. So how can you explain their low birth rates due to feminism?

[–]FortunateBum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I suspect these trends far surpass ideology.

The carrying capacity of the planet has been passed. Thankfully, instead of warfare, people are just having fewer kids. Probably because birth control is pretty easy in the modern world.

If you look at how adulterated processed food is, I think that's a clear indicator of civilization being at the end of stretching resources.

As we are learning, the baby boom way overproduced. The green revolution was a catastrophe.

Not everything bad in the world is because of feminism.

I'm guessing the world will, in a few generations, come to a more comfortable level of population.

I would not blame feminism on this. Germany is not that bad regarding divorce. For example sex withdrawal is valid reason (for men) to divorce. And it is not uncommon for men to get full custody.

Problem is with status, jobs (overqualified mentality) and general sentiment in society.

[–]privated1ck 3 points4 points  (3 children)

All this population decline has happened since the destruction of the two-parent, one-income home that--as some of us witnessed--happened in the '70s and continues through today. Where are birth rates steady and rising? In nuclear families with strong religious faith, in areas not plagued by dictatorship and war.

Every man in here should take a good look at themselves. We are the men our grandparents wanted their grand children to be. We all have our weaknesses, but our strengths are so much more than our parents.

Overall the men of America are taller, stronger, more educated, more traveled & wealthier than any American before us. If you've taken TRP knowledge to heart, then you're well-groomed, financially stable (or on the right path), know how to interact with others & have control over your own emotions. Many of us here, myself included, have made significant strides in bettering ourselves and have seen real results. I know exactly who I used to be, so know in what areas I have progressed.

We young men are the ones being blamed for societies failures. A society that we've barely been apart of, and certainly don't have any congressional representation in. It's unfortunate that a large portion of our society does not realize that things have significantly changed since they were our age. I will not be caged into marriage and I will not be caged into an unwanted pregnancy. I'm too smart for that.

[–]Veles11 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Most men in first world countries are now realizing that having children leaves them in an absolutely ridiculous situation. You basically relinquish all of your free time, have a women controlling many aspects of your life, AND you're paying hundreds of thousands $ over 18 years (more since you'll be paying for uni probably)

A lot of people, myself included, would want to have a son after they are well off financially, but for me the costs really outweigh the benefits.

I was talking to my girlfriend about this, and how it's going to continue to get worse until the system resets back to normal, and the muslims will be the majority oppressing the women again. Maybe it's just a cycle though, and they will get feminized too, and it will be reset by the next again.

Trust me, Germany 2015 is like the opposite of Germany 1935. As op said, todays germany will push for more women working and more immigrants to counter the ever declining birth rate.

The causal thinking of "more women working" » "less babies" can MAYBE be seen by the average german, but solutions of sort "women staying more at home would solve the demographic catastrophe" are completely anathema to him.

Its like the germans cant find a stable midpoint, they have to go from one extreme to the other.

Well, you're not wrong as worded but I would hesitate to say they've adopted the "American" identity or have any affinity to the "American" state. At least around Iowa, their identity is as "Iowan" as Robert E. Lee's identity was "Virginian".

[–]TamingDebt 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I think there's bound to be a tipping point in many of these European nations importing immigrants en masse. I don't think this is necessarily a violent tipping point (nor do I hope it is). I just think when the demographics shift really far in the direction of African immigrants, and the average German doesn't even feel comfortable, safe, or surrounded by peers in their own country, they will likely establish some measures of self-segregation like in South Africa.

[–]Piroko 5 points5 points [recovered]

Certainly; not everything they did made the best of sense.

However, as long as you're NOT at war, it does make sense. Doctor being a desirable profession in a husband after all. Tallying up all the professions that women find desirable in husbands and then systematically excluding women from those professions is a very effective way of manipulating the sexual marketplace to encourage strong family formation.

"Right" and "wrong" are relative and difficult to test, but whether or not something is effective isn't.

Multiculturism is the leading edge of a global depression. Instead of extending a helping hand to "3rd world nations", we are extending a free citizenship to a "1st world nation". The drag on developed nations will grow exponentially until the system breaks down, ushering in a economic depression worldwide. In no case will this lead to "the rich" being any less rich. But it will mean the destruction of the middle class, demoting them to low class to join all the imported citizens that brought the system down.

There is a lot more that goes into birth rates than simple feminism but the culture of today has certainly contributed.

Birth rates fall with affluence usually (obvious exceptions at certain times in history). This has been observed as far back as the Roman Republic.

Contraception wasn't widely available until the last 70ish years

And any time there are major economic and geopolitical crisis both rates fall. Birth rates also fell during the 1970's and prior to that in the 30's and 40's etc. etc.

Right now the west is at a major extreme with birth rates but in 5 or so years if the economy turns around you'll see millennials (by then 20-40) will start blasting out kids like crazy

[–]DaphneDK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When looking at it from the outside, it's also a genetic experiment on a unprecedented scale. The future belongs to those that have children. Both the genetic line as well as the culture of those segments of society that are not having children will die off. By all accounts Christians and conservatives ought to be looking at a revival a few decades down the line.

That's sad. Really sad. Look, I don't wanna start a debate on eugenics, but not having nordic people reproduce in big numbers is a fucking shame. You'd be a fool to not acknowledge that genetic pool is fucking gold.

The women have amazing hair, eyes and complexion. They produce solid offspring. And the guys are just fucking studs. Tall, incredibly good looking.

Where's the problem, isn't a low birth rate a good thing now? Japan and Germany should be given an award.

[–]monzzter221 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The reason this is happening in a country like Germany, where the work hours are lower, the pay is higher, and the healthcare is good, is not economic.

It is 100% social. Men want children. We do. We want families.

But there's no incentive. When you put your life into your family, and there's no security there, no socially pressured reciprocation, the result is what many of us here have come to realize. We can never have the family life we want. We can't have the kids that we teach how to be people, because the school will teach them otherwise. We can't have the wives that take care of them, that have that glow they get when they are happy taking care of a house and kids all day, because they are taught that it is dehumanizing and shameful to be that woman.

We opt out. And western countries are starting to feel the effects of it. They are starting to see just how important a mans incentive to start a family is.

[–]donit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, we need to find another way in order to survive. Start a new country?

[–]cock_pussy_up 9 points10 points  (36 children)

I think the way to solve the low birth rate problem is to remove women from schools and the workforce and give men priority in education and employment. That would provide a larger pool of "marriageable" men, make women less picky (hypergamy), more dependent on men, and give them more time for breeding without competition from education and employment demands.

Of course that solution is totally unacceptable to the ideology of the West. So, instead, they'll just keep on importing foreign immigrants until their nation is largely made up of people of foreign descent.

[–]castaway102 25 points25 points [recovered]

I don't belong in this thread, because I'm not a TRPer. What you're saying is confusing. One of the TRP philosophies is that women seek men who are rich and successful and will look after them, and that that's wrong and women are just users. But, when women internalise this philosophy, and feel that it's wrong to be dependent on a man's money (they earned it, so it's not for the woman) and so get an education and get a job that means they rely on themselves, that's wrong too. Isn't that contradictory?

What do you want from women? This is what it looks like to an oitsider:

  1. Women must be submissive to men.
  2. Women must provide men with 'woman sphere services': food, comfort, sex and loyalty, on demand.
  3. The man does not have an obligation to provide for the woman, but can if he wants.
  4. Women should be out of the economic, political and educational system.

[–]aakksshhaayy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

this guy is just an idiot, he doesn't realize he's basically describing sharia law (limit women from education and work and ultimately basic privileges such as driving, being outside alone, etc.). Man if people in trp upvote this crap then this subreddit is going to shit

[–]donit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think women are taught to feel bad about depending on a man because they're raised with men as unisex "persons", rather than being raised as women.

And we can't really criticize them for not being submissive if they've never experienced it in their life or culture.

So, the first issue is they've never been given a role, other than (person equal to a man). Well, if it's a gender role intended to compliment the man's role, it can't be equal to a man, because that would be competitive rather than complimentary. The man's role is already taken by the man, so if her role was equal then it wouldn't be specialized.

So, the first thing we need to do is toss out the idea of equality because neither sex should try to be equal to the other. Can you imagine bringing equality to a baseball game? Everybody gets to pitch. How about football? Everyone is a quarterback. Everyone takes turns calling the plays and everyone gets a turn at each position. Any sports team that tried to do that would lose every game because there would be no specialization.

Well, if you consider a family a sports team, it's the same thing. A family of two "persons" is just not going to be able to compete in life. The birth rates and divorce rates illustrate that. Just like in the example, the teams all start to lose. It doesn't work.

So, we need to respect the female role (women) again. Somehow we forgot they were important, and wrote them off as a personal "cultural" option as if being a woman was just something little girls could opt into if they felt an emotional connection to the culture of it. Women are not a culture, they're the only way we can survive.

But you did bring up an interesting dilemma: what should the support structure be for women? The answer is whatever would guide them into their role, because our survival depends on them being there.

If they earn all their own money, then it's going to be hard for them to feel dependent on a man or be able to get into a submissive frame of mind. But to change that, we have to stop raising girls as independent professionals, and get them more aligned toward becoming wives and mothers. Instead of studying for a career, they should be educated in supportive roles like accounting, organizational management, people management, and scheduling.

It's not because women can't be men. They can. But we needed their gender in the first place. That's why they're here. That's why they're like that.

[–]mkopec -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

And when I dont pay I go to jail? Thats what I want. I dont care if she has a career, degrees, all the freedom she wants.Thats fine. But at the core the system is skewed to fuck the man. And I dont care if youre TRP or not, you should be smart enough to realize this, because it might happen to you my friend. This is why people in western societies are not getting married and not having kids.

[–]curiousthis -1 points0 points  (0 children)

One of the TRP philosophies is that women seek men who are rich and successful and will look after them, and that that's wrong and women are just users.

It's not a philosophy - it's an observation (cemented by experience). We're the red pill - we tell it like it is. That said, the first part is correct - women seek out men who are rich, successful and will look after them. It's in the second part that you're leaping to a conclusion.

TRP says that there's nothing bad or wrong about it - it just is and it's better for men to understand that.

So what do we want from women?

If I may use your list:

  1. The TRP expectation is that women would be the first mate to the captain. Submission has nothing to do with this.

  2. Women must provide men with 'woman sphere services': food, comfort, sex and loyalty - because she has either made a vow to that effect or because she realizes that it's the best way to support her captain.

  3. In return, the man does have an obligation to provide, protect, and nurture the woman.

  4. Women should not be given a free pass in the economic, political and educational system. If they want to play in that playground, they have to abide by the same rules that men do.

Hope this helps.

[–]cock_pussy_up 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Part of the reason why women delay having children in their prime fertility years is because of school and career priorities. I'm not saying all of them would have children if they weren't in school or working, but I think more of them would.

[–]StManTiS 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Exactly, a college degree basically halves a woman's fertility and pushes the birth age up which risks more birth defects.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I believe it's actually a combination of a couple factors

  • Career oriented women are generally at university or climbing the career ladder in their reproductive prime years

  • The increased availability of low cost birth control

  • Even for monogamous long term couples, when both partners have full time careers they will often just opt out of having children due to already low amounts of free time.

  • The increasingly hostile institution of marriage.

There are some really smart people out there who actually are concerned that humans may some day go extinct due to lack of procreation as technology continues to improve.

Many futurists have expressed some concern as to what would happen if "virtual reality" on demand sex became widely available. If it literally felt 100% like the real thing, and you could customize it to your tastes, it's safe to assume many (more) people would drop out of the sexual marketplace altogether.

[–]curiousthis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People aren't having children because they don't need to.

Exactly. Children were not considered the apple of your eye and coddled the way they are now. Prior to us becoming a rich country, children were essentially free labor (when on a farm or business). And having children made the difference between being able to grow enough to keep increasing your standard of living, or not.

I still remember my grandmother talking to distant cousins who were having trouble conceiving and had essentially decided to remain childless. And the only question she kept asking was "but who will help you with the farm?".

Needless to say, the farm is no more.
