Ave Maria!

Alex Joseph from India gives his unique perspective of the population problem as he witnessed it in one of the most densely populated counties in the world. Listens as he explains how India is currently undergoing many of the changes we experienced 40 years ago, including a massive decrease in the birth rate due to the adoption of the contraceptive mentality. Although India is still above the replacement level it has decreased along with virtually every other country throughout the world, including the Muslim countries which are so often cited as growing out of control.  Only a small part of Africa still has close to historical birthrates. The result is that instead of a population explosion, we are mathematically guaranteed to have a population implosion. But, before that we will have the problem of taking care of our aging population with a rapidly shrinking numbers of youth. This problem is so large that it will impoverish even the richest countries in the world.

Ave Maria!
