Recent ones news from the "demographic front" is not encouraging. So, the news came that the indigenous population of Belarus continues to die out. On 1 in November 2013, the population of the Republic of Belarus was 9 million 467,2 thousand people. This was announced by the National Statistical Committee of the Republic. In January-October, 2013 was born in Belarus 99 499 children died - 105 531 people. As a result, the number of deaths in the republic exceeded the number of births by 6,1%. Last year the situation was worse: in January-October, 2012, the number of deaths exceeded the number of births by 9,6%. According to official data, a decrease in the population was recorded in the Grodno, Gomel, Mogilyov, Vitebsk and Minsk regions, in almost all Belarusian regions (The indigenous population of Belarus is dying out).
However, the population decline did not occur, since the migration increase compensated for the natural population decline. Migration growth in January-October was 2013. 9 428 people, which ensured an increase in the population of the Republic of Belarus by 3,4 thousand people, Belstat reports. Moreover, the migration increase increased compared to the same period of 2012 of the year by 2 398 people (34,1%). In addition, there was an outflow of qualified labor abroad, mainly to Russia. The Belarusian authorities switched to the policy of replacing labor reserves with migrant workers from the Central Asian republics, as well as from the DPRK and other foreign countries. Along with negative trends, there are also positive ones: the number of registered marriages has increased (15,5%), the number of divorces has decreased (by 11,4%). Thus, the demographic picture in Belarus is similar to the Russian one: the indigenous population continues to die out, it is being replaced by other ethnic elements.
Loss of moral values
Those researchers, who believe that urbanization is not the main cause of the extinction of the white race, emphasize the loss of moral values. Only a blind man does not see that Western Europe has come off strongly from its Christian roots. Liberal and post-liberal values have replaced people with faith in God. The cult of money and consumption are the main Western values. Now they dominate both in the East and in Russia, although they have not won a complete victory.
Moral degradation of society leads immediately to several serious consequences. Here and indifferent attitude to the unborn child, in which they do not see the person, the availability of abortions, their propaganda, the aggressive introduction of all kinds of contraceptives, and “consumption” (unrestrained consumption of goods for the sake of consumption), and the destruction of the family, family values, etc.
One of the surrogates of a healthy psyche is the so-called. consumption, which aggressively forms a consumer society. Self-esteem of a person in such a society depends on how much he consumed, the more he used, he bought, the higher his satisfaction with life, his sense of self-importance. The first such system created in the West. The United States became the personification of consumption: there they actively developed the infrastructure that led to the killing of time through “shopping”, the massive issuance of consumer loans, the overdeveloped sphere of goods and services, and other pursuit of pleasure. Professional sport is also included in this system, where a small number of athletes are turned into idols for the crowd, and they are made of “stars”. And the bulk of the population consumes the spectacle and a whole bunch of related products, most often not needed for a normal life. Huge masses of people kill time watching sports programs, visit stadiums, absorb tons of junk food and beverages, including drug addicts (beer, etc.). And this instead of making regular physical culture a part of one’s life and the life of one’s children. The "divorce" of the crowd has been known since ancient times: "Bread and circuses." At present, Western bosses have reached almost the pinnacle of art in manipulating the population. People pay for the illusion of happiness with their hopes, energy and money.
A great example of consumption is the stampede and mass brawls in the United States during the Christmas sales season. People are ready to push and beat each other for things. The brutality has reached such a stage that the few flunks are not afraid of the authorities. For example, in New York, the police even had to arrest several people in one of the shopping centers of the Walmart network to prevent a massacre. In California, in the city of San Bernardo, a policeman was beaten up, who separated the fighting men. In New Jersey, police had to use pepper spray to stop a fight. In Chicago, an enraged shopper hit a policeman in a car. His comrades opened fire and wounded one man. In Las Vegas, in the parking lot of a supermarket, a fight began with shooting from behind the TV (In the US, marked the beginning of sales crush, mass brawls and protests).
The main channels through which consumer stereotypes are introduced are TV and advertising. The most primitive gregarious, sexual instincts are being imposed on man, actually turning him into a subhuman. Consumers of the middle class and the poor strata of society imitate the behavior of the rich, who with the help of expensive things demonstrate their importance. Practically this animal behavior. Suffice it to recall the course of biology.
In principle, a person is distinguished from an animal by understanding the cause-and-effect relationships, ethics are built on this. The modern consumer society indulges precisely the animal part of the human psyche, moreover, it specifically forms the animal structure of the psyche. Consumer society deals a powerful blow to the reproduction of themselves. After all, children so interfere with consumption!
It is necessary to abandon the mass of "necessary" things, cut down their own consumption, become more mature, more responsible. Give up a lot of pleasure: after all, hedonism goes hand in hand with consumption. Often, you can see a completely “packed” family, with either no children, or just one child. But these people have the time and money for a new car or a purebred dog that consumes at the level of children from ordinary families. The reasoning about the lack of funds is truly ridiculous when those who uphold this opinion have the latest model phone or laptop in their hands, when more money is spent on a car per year than on the child’s annual maintenance ...
The reasoning on the topic is popular: they say, we would have had a couple of children if the state provided us, as the state does in the United States or somewhere in Western Europe. This refers to the popular cinematic image, when the family has an apartment, a suburban house, several cars, etc.
But this is a mythical image. First, in the West only the middle class lived in this way, when it was necessary for them to maintain a good life against the background of the USSR, so that there was no desire to organize a revolution. After the collapse, this model began to turn off. The middle class in the West is rapidly shrinking, there remain the rich and the poor. Secondly, the planet cannot provide resources for such a life for all. The race of consumption kills the biosphere and humanity with it. Third, not those who deserve it claim a high level of consumption - scientists, designers, test pilots, cosmonauts - but young people who have no qualifications, “koyakers”, people who do not want to work and study, but dream about luxury life.
By the way, it is consumerism that completely negates the view that the main reason for the deplorable demography in the West, in Russia and Japan, is the lack of funds. The poorest countries in Asia and Africa lack of cash does not prevent the population from growing rapidly. And often the state does not support the population at all. Poverty did not interfere with the continuation of its clan and the peasants in the Russian Empire. War, a half-starved existence, the lack of basic necessities did not prevent Stalin’s USSR from increasing its population. The current West, Russia and Japan are a zone of the “golden billion”, in which the level of consumption is much higher than that of the rest 6 billion people. Latin Americans, Africans and Asians consume much less goods, food, energy, resources per capita (except for the “elite” class) than residents of the “golden billion”. However, the population of Central and South America, Africa and Asia is rapidly increasing. And Europe, Russia (minus migration growth) and Japan are dying out. Satiety, a relatively high level of consumption are not incentives for fertility. An individual and an individual family in a consumer society are interested in low childbearing in order to ensure a high level of consumption and comfort. For them, the main motives are consumption, comfort, and pleasures (hedonism bordering on Satanism), not motives to bear children.
Consumption (philistinism) began to develop in the post-Stalinist USSR. However, the most ugly and destructive forms of consumption, VIP consumption and consumption of the middle and poor strata of the population have already developed in the Russian Federation. The Soviet bourgeois, who were deceptively deceived, depriving them of a great power, the best army, science and education in the world, finally got to the simple pleasures of a consumer society. The new generations, the Pepsi and Next generations, are in some ways even worse, so they do not have the restraining programs and the level of education, the breadth of their horizons, which the Soviet man had. Russia was trapped in consumption.
The consumer society creates a vicious circle that leads post-industrial societies to degeneration, loss of cultural and civilizational identity. The population in such a society is trying to maintain at the expense of low mortality, advances in medicine and an increase in the number of migrants who fill niches in the unskilled labor market. However, firstly, this leads to the growth of genetic marriage from generation to generation. In society, more attention and resources are devoted to saving the hopelessly sick, rather than growing up mentally and physically healthy new generations. Secondly, the increase in the number of outsiders leads to the erosion of national identity, the growth of conflict within the society. In the long run, the influx of migrants leads to conflict over the redistribution of livelihoods, types of employment and habitat.
Kosovo is a good example: Albanian settlers seized it from the Serbs. They took away the means of life support, types of employment and habitat. This is our future, if only we allow the continuation of mass migration and do not attend to the survival of the nation. It must be said that at the level of instincts, Serbs feel that the situation may repeat in other areas of Serbia and resist the new influx of foreigners. So, the decision of Belgrade to place on the territory of settlements of immigrants who did not have enough space in specialized reception centers met with serious resistance of ordinary people (Serbs have rebelled against the influx of refugees). In order to prevent the influx of migrants, the Serbs are blocking the roads to their villages with the help of barricades, a harness designed for foreigners. So the local Serbian population counteracts the movement of refugees from the countries of the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia to the villages. According to the press, Serbia, like other European countries, is experiencing an unprecedented influx of migrants from Asia and Africa. Serbia is located on the Balkan Peninsula, which is one of the main routes of migration to the EU countries.
In addition, the consumer society dramatically worsens the defensive potential of the state. Armies turn into police-punitive corps or gala-demonstration units incapable of real war. In a family with one or two children, parents try to protect their sons from the “horrors of service”, and during the war the army’s rejection grows in order. Several dozens of dead cause panic, immerses society in a trance, the masses demand peace at any cost (that is, they are even ready to betray national interests). Although in a healthy society, the death of warriors is perceived not only as grief, inevitable in war, but also as a reason for pride for the heroes, inner satisfaction with the fact that family and society brought up real fighters.
Consumer-type society is becoming Russia step by step. All humanistic chatter about the intrinsic value of human life, the need for labor of migrant workers, the absence of civilization and national conflicts and the existence of only domestic motives in the end only confirms the consumer society, leads to the degeneration of Russian civilization.
