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.

Alas, “sophistication” sows the seeds of its own destruction.
