#1 OMG! Isn't population Increase like some sort of Marxist economic increase?

The correct population density should not be mandated by the state...

Throughout history falls in population have correlated with falls in rent-seeking, and thus major gains for the little people.

#2 Fall in Babies not being born is a sign of lack of confidence in the present and future. Only confident couples HAVE babies.
If I am not mistaken EUroweenies AND Russians don't prove Competent in having babies...for some reason.

See if you can figure it out.

#3 We would be foolish to gloat about this.

I think it would be better for all of us if Russia is inhabited by Russians instead of becoming a vacuum to be filled by people who are hostile to Western Civilization.

The Twentieth Century was catastrophic for Russia. They experienced two of the bloodiest wars in history and communism which was all the legacy of an incompetent and corrupt royal dynasty and aristocracy that oppressed them for centuries. It's a wonder any of them survived. I wish them well and pray for their eventual recovery.

Putin is a ruthless dictator and he is not our friend. But the argument can be made that he is the best those poor people can do. Our government should be more understanding and less antagonistic. We should not forget that, without them, our war with NAZI Germany might have gone a lot differently. Today there are still many areas of mutual interest in which we could cooperate with them in spite of our differences.
