- During the next thirty years, the population of Africa is expected to increase by one billion.
- The French economist Charles Gave recently predicted that France will have a Muslim majority by 2057 — and this estimate did not even take into consideration the number of expected new migrants.
- No doubt, Africa’s exploding population will try to reach the shores of a wealthy, senile Europe, which is already undergoing an internal demographic revolution. Europe, to retain its culture, will need to make hard-headed decisions, not just amuse itself to death. The question is: Will Europe protect its borders and civilization before it is submerged?
French President Emmanuel Macron this summer ended up in the middle of a political storm — with accusations of “racism” — for saying that women “with seven or eight children” are responsible for the current condition of the African continent, thus creating a challenge, according to Macron, that is “civilizational”.
The United Nations states that Macron is right. According to the UN’s annual demographic report, “World Population Prospects,” one-sixth of the world’s population currently lives in Africa. By 2050, the proportion will be one-quarter, and at the end of the century — when Africa will have four billion people — one-third.
