A wrinkly, constipated future?

The transformation of developed societies - either into old folks' homes (like Japan) or semi-Islamized dystopias (like Amsterdam, Brussels, etc) - will lead, in fact, to emigration

"In 2055, people will come to work when they have time off from long-term care," said Kiyoaki Fujiwara, director of economic policy at the Japan Business Federation.

The 'sixties' generation has taught Westerners to despise themselves, and it's worked. We will eliminate ourselves through de-population while other cultures rapidly expand.

Western ideology and idealism that led to the individual liberty of millions of people, personal freedoms unimaginable to anyone a century ago, and the wealth to enjoy it all have also allowed an ideology of hatred to flourish as well. Based in self-hatred it is usually then projected at others in various forms of socialism but more recently as environmentalism.
