Julian Assange is a nazi

... he thinks European women should be having more children, staying in the kitchen, going to church more.

Sure I heard something like this before.

Agree, he's completely wrong; what's not to like about the great European culture and values, just think about these deep master-student relationships in French schools - isn't it the pinnacle of what is on offer to unshaved hordes of plumbers from the Wild East?

I realize he hasn't got the required parts to be a mother, but how many kids has he fathered?

I gather it's not for want of trying.

Re: Julian Assange is a nazi

I don't get the atheism bit... why would believing in a higher being make you have more kids?

(and capitalism has been around for centuries... including times where people had a dozen kids...)

Re: Julian Assange is a nazi

Would have been a nice topic for the Friday.

- I do not see Assange saying what OP states he is saying.
- If this Qualifies as Nazi, there's suddenly more Nazi's then ever.

Be fruitful and multiply.

I guess old Ass-ange (angel ass?) must be a Monty Python Meaning of Life fan..."Every sperm is sacred, every sperm is good" i.e. contraception is against the teachings of the Catholic church...

He's just living proof of what staying cooped up inside the house for too long can do to you. Can you imagine that level of cabin fever?!!

Re: Julian Assange is a nazi

First of all I wouldn't call him a Nazi, recently in this forum the adjective has been attributed to people quite randomly.
His problem is very simple, he has no basic understanding of causality. Indeed one can argue that capitalism, feminism and possibly atheism are on the rise and on the other hand sterility is arguably on the rise. But there's no causal relationship. Yesterday I opened the window and I saw a plane flying above. Surely, its me opening the window that caused the plane!

The fact that he also uses sterility, which is a medical condition and unlikely the cause for the lower birthrate is an irrelevant mistake in his overall flawed argument.

Actually I'd say his problem is that he's a publicity seeking misfit, who's only recent claim to fame is having a dubious approach to sexual consent and living in an embassy for years.

He's now having to trying and compete with the tabloid press to post complete nonsense in order to get attention. Or he's going nuts - I don't really care either way.

Well he's not wrong about the causes of population decline in certain developed countries. Japan and Germany especially are going to undergo huge demographic changes in the coming decades.

Poverty causes people to have more children. Capitalism lifts people out of poverty which means they have less children. And as for religion:

You make the same mistake twice by taking correlation for causation. Poverty does not magically make people more fertile and money less fertile. There are a bunch of factors at play. Take India, relatively poor country, agriculture dominates the rural areas. Having more kids simply means having more help on the field. Same thing goes for rural Africa. Another reason why poorer countries have higher birthrate is due to the poor medical infrastructure which forces families to have more kids to make sure that at least some of them survive. Back to the developed world, we have less kids because its a very expensive project, both from a monetary and also time perspective. Also, our medical infrastructure makes sure that the vast majority of kids that are born make it to adulthood.

So, in a nutshell, poverty results in people having more children and wealth generally means they have less

Re: Julian Assange is a nazi

This is an interesting subject which shouldn't be reduced to name calling - maybe it gets more attention when it has the word "Nazi" in it, but it doesn't do it justice.

Fertility rates have been going down in developed & developing countries for decades.

It's not related to atheism - Iran has a fertility rate of 1.68, Russia 1.75 - both are much more religious than UK (1.8) & Sweden (1.85).
