Longtime SteynOnline regulars will be familiar with the demographic thesis Mark outlined in his 2006 international bestseller America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It. Almost the entire developed world is mired in deathbed demography from which no functioning society has ever recovered. Meanwhile, there is a demographic tsunami underway from the non-functioning parts of the world, manifest in the ceaseless flotilla of boats crossing the Mediterranean every single day (and nothing to do with civil war in Syria).
Mark's book was a big success a decade ago and remains in print. But it is a melancholy fact that most people in the western world remain entirely unaware of this remorseless arithmetic or its likely consequences. So this brand new SteynPost is a kind of primer on recent demographic developments, and where they lead. Click below to watch:
SteynPosts and The Mark Steyn Show are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club. Among the pleasures of membership is that you can enjoy our TV content in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you'd rather sample the above in non-visual form, please log-in here. We're excited to announce that our entire run of SteynPosts, starting with the very first edition, is now available in audio. You can find all those, plus some of the more memorable editions of The Mark Steyn Show, over in our Audio & Transcripts department.
Steyn Club members can also hit the comment threads and tear Mark's arguments to pieces. Mark finds that, when he talks demography, there are always plenty of "Yes, but..." questions, so we plan to devote an upcoming edition of Mark's Mailbox to those.
If you haven't yet experienced the delights of The Mark Steyn Club, you'll find more information here. We've introduced some new features in recent days - including a new poetry corner - and we'll have the third of our nightly audio adventures, Tales for Our Time, starting later this month.
