Falling birth rates mean the end of the West - Lord Sacks


“Europe is going to die because of this because Europe can only maintain its population by unprecedented levels of immigration.

“Now those could be integrated into Europe but they won’t be integrated into Europe because when a culture loses its memory it loses its identity and when a culture loses its identity there’s nothing left for people to integrate into."

“... Contemporary historians … right now, have failed to find a single historical example of a society that became secularised and maintained its birth rate over subsequent centuries. That’s how great civilisations decline and fall.

“The weird thing is that the only people who refuse to acknowledge this really are the new atheists all of whom are worshippers of a figure up in Heaven with a long beard, Charles Darwin.

"And if Charles Darwin taught us anything it is judge species by their reproductive success.”

Former Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks  said this in an interview with the Daily Telegraph a year ago. Lord Sachs was Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth from 1991 to 2013. Julian Critchley had Lord Sacks in mind when he said Mrs Thatcher wouldn't resign till she had appointed the Chief Rabbi Archbishop of Canterbury.
