When history repeats

Just finished watching the film I linked to in the previous post – Demographic Winter – The Decline of the Human Family (Part 1)

Absolutely compelling stuff, a must see documentary. Unfortunately I can’t find a streaming link for it at the moment, will post when I do.

Here is a quote from the end of the film. I will post a more extensive review when I have watched it for a second time. It is an overwhelmingly dense film.

“In our time all Greece was visited by a dearth of children and general decay of population…This evil grew upon us rapidly, and without attracting attention, by our men becoming perverted to a passion for show and money and the pleasures of an idle life.” – Polybius circa 140 B.C.
