Going Dutch


Jonah, as NR’s resident Demography Bore, I’d also note that one consequence of the Dutch supersophistication about matters sexual is that Amsterdam and Rotterdam are on course to become majority Muslim cities within the next decade.

So the idea that in, say, 2020 Mijnheer en Mevrouw Mohammed are going to be sitting on the sofa in their Amsterdam living room unable to hear the news anchor on al-Jazeera because the chandelier’s vibrating to their teenage daughter’s upstairs gymnastics is a bit of a long shot. Alas, “sophistication” sows the seeds of its own destruction.
