What Does A Demographic Crunch Look Like?

James Corbett, March 16 2019

...it looks like we here in Japan are once again getting a sneak preview of the challenges that are going to be facing the rest of the developed world very soon.

What comes to your mind when you hear the words "demographic crunch"?

If you're like much of the general public, having been steeped their whole lives in propaganda pimping the debunked notion of an "overpopulation crisis," you probably won't even know what the term "demographic crunch" means.

But you, dear reader, are not part of the general public. You're part of that special fraction of the population that has seen my work on the real nature of the demographic crisis that the developed world is facing (namely, underpopulation) and are already looking for the warning signs of this crisis.

So let me put the question to you: What are the warning signs of an undepopulation crisis? What does a "demographic crunch" look like, and how will it start to manifest itself in our day-to-day lives?

The answers to these questions may take you by surprise. They certainly surprised me.

Allow me to explain. This column that you're reading and that I've been writing for eight (!) years now is largely a product of caffeine. You see, for almost the entirety of that eight years I've been writing this column every Friday night at a local cafe. That's right. While you were out partying it up for the weekend or spending some quality time with the family, I've been diligently tucking my family into bed and then heading out to the local cafe, sipping on coffee as I type away furiously on my laptop, often staying until closing time to get this column done in time for The International Forecaster publication deadline.

But no more. It started out with my go-to cafe closing down for two months for renovations. No big loss. There are still plenty of other cafes to go to, right? Well, the next most convenient cafe turned out to be closed as well. Usually open until midnight, it seemed to be shutting its doors at 10 PM.

10 PM? How am I supposed to finish writing about the intricacies of the world of hidden history and conspiratorial geopolitics by 10 PM? Obviously, that wouldn't do. So I tried the next nearest spot, one that similarly was open until midnight . . . . Or used to be open until midnight. It had suddenly changed its closing time to 11 PM.

What was going on here? Was there some sort of intelligence agency plot afoot to make sure I couldn't work on ...

America is ALREADY a Socialist Country

James Corbett, February 9 2019

This isn't an aberration. This is what government is. It is its nature. There is no political process that makes it better. You cannot vote yourself to freedom any more than slaves could vote their way off the plantation.
