This week on Uncommon Knowledge, Mark Steyn joins us to discuss his bestselling book, America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It. From America Alone:
This book is about…the larger forces at play in the developed world that have left Europe too enfeebled to resist its remorseless transformation into Eurabia and that call into question the future of much of the rest of the world, including the United States, Canada, and beyond. The key factors are: 1. Demographic decline; 2. The unsustainability of the advanced Western social-democratic state; 3. Civilizational exhaustion.
In our first segment Steyn breaks down the numbers and explains why they spell doom for the Western world. In today’s segment, Steyn discusses the unsustainable habits of the West.
