Kein kind

What's Canadian wit Mark Steyn been saying? What's Danish wit Mullah Krekar been saying? Confirmed.

The German birth rate has fallen to the lowest level since the Second World War. So low that several towns in East Germany may soon cease to exist (except for the mosquitoes).

The consequences?

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has calculated that, given the current demographic trend, the best economic growth Germany can hope for in 2025 is half a percent.
All is, however, not lost.
Despite the seeming inability of political policies to boost the birth rate, German politicians are not giving up.
Oh, no? What are they going to do? Is state intrusion into private parts going to go even deeper? Article here.
