I, too, think the race is on it's way out, and why not? We're really no different from the rest of the species on the planet, and they become
extinct all the time.
If you agree with evolutionary theories, it's easy to see evidence of this.
Evolution has always worked on a "the strong survive" system, with those most capable of feeding themselves and reproducing being the ones who last,
and those not so able to provide for themselves and their offspring dropping by the wayside.
Now with social programs, those not so able to support themselves are supported by the state. Generally, it's even beneficial to the recipient to
continue breeding as this increases the benefit. Thus we have people being supported by the state producing large families, and people that have to
support themselves having smaller families so they can afford to provide for them.
This is obviously an "upside-down" situation, evolutionally speaking. The strong are the ones falling by the wayside, with the not so able rapidly
out-breeding them, with the support of the state. This leads to a population with a larger percentage of not so able citizens, with creates a race of
humans not so able to survive.
I know this is not true of everyone receiving state benefits, but I think, in general, that this is a relatively accurate hypothesis.
I don't know if this is just the way things worked out, or if it was part of a "master plan" by the elite to help in the depopulation of the
species (which theory I'm sure you're familiar with if you've been on ATS for more then a day), but I definitely see it as being to the
disadvantage of the race in general, and a step towards the possible extinction of the human race.
