No one was trying to lambast people for not having children. What was posted was something about broad demographics, not focused on the individual. People's choice to procreate is not at issue here and is a very private matter.
I thought so too, until someone chimed in who made it personal. :)

Japan is certainly one, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Greece would be others.
The truth is that everyone who has speculated endlessly on population issues has been eventually proven wrong over time. Human beings aren't very linear or rational and they have a way of responding to events that can be distressingly unpredictable in terms of childbearing.
Your last statement validates my point. While the indigeneous populations of the countries you name are certainly declining in population, no mathematical model can state that the decline is irreversible. One might posit it economically only if one makes the assumption that, for example, people will not change their way of life/standard of living. However, that's a pretty shaky assumption upon which to base such dire predictions -- sort of like the Malthusians.
Don't you think that's what this video is saying. It neglects the growth of Christian populations in places like Brazil (too dark) and, when it speaks of the US, notes that the break even point is only achieved by adding in Hispanics. If we're talking Christian, I always thought that Hispanics were primarily Christian as well.
It covers all of those .Read the piece again this time put your bi focals on old fellah !
