Peak Stupidity commenter, and lately returning (backsliding?) Unz Review commenter E.H. Hail became well known to this blog as an early-on stalwart anti-Corona-Panicker over 3 years ago. His Hail To You blog featured a series of 15, maybe a few more, data-based articles against the Kung Lue PanicFest during the worst of that period. We have linked to him before, but one would be better off going to his site to find the Kung Flu stuff.
He's written about more than just that important subject though. We've linked to his posts about Ron DeSantis (which started with discussion of the PanicFest but branched out from there), and his discussions of the racial situation in America, some of that going back well over a decade. His latest is on this combination of population replacement and demography - an interesting, solid, long (give yourself an hour) post A study on America’s demographic-national crisis — Early-2020s birth-data by race; and developments in the White birth-share in the USA, 1920s to 2020s.
There are just a few basic easy-to-interpret graphs in Mr. Hail's article, with much discussion to go along with them. Americans
Rather than given any opinion here, I'll ask the PS reader to check out Mr. Hail's article and comment section. I'll point out 3 more things here though.
1) OK, this is a tiny bit of discussion: It's interesting that the graphs of White population proportion in the article show 5 fairly distinct phases over the last ~75 years.
2) We didn't do any numerical analysis - there are only 2 graphs in the 3 posts - but Peak Stupidity had a series of 3 posts a year into our blog life (November of '17) called Western World committing demographic sooeee-cide. - See Part 1 - - Part 2 - Snowflake Girls, and Part 3.
3) The Instapundit Glenn Harlan Reynolds just wrote an article 3 days back about decreasing birthrates around the world - Free Will, Children, and the Great Filter. He didn't seem to be too awfully worried about the mix of children being born. I think he should.
