The EU: Silently working to offset the disastrous legacy of a post-Christian society

The EU has voted to extend maternity leaves to 20 weeks. No small reason for this is to offset the demographic train wreck that has occurred as a result of Europe's insistence that sex is merely a recreational activity that shouldn't be burdened by the inconvenience of a human being that is no more than a festering malignant blight upon the earth anyway. Of course, once again progressives get it wrong and fail to grasp what your average caveman figured out. Not that progressives will admit that their glorious positions could be flawed. At best, they will simply move to right the wrongs, but never, ever admit they were wrong to begin with.

  1. I dare say it is not about having babies it is all about having customers and more people to spend money. I would venture a guess that this move will fail not because it isn't a good idea, but because the governments usually look at the here and now and not the future.

    If Europe wants more babies maybe they should think about outlawing abortion or maybe even going farther and eliminating birth control all together. That would increase the population in a short time and there would be a baby boom in the EU.

    I think they miss the fact that it is not because of Maternity leave being too short (alot longer than here in the US) It is because there is no value to life. People don't want to have kids because kids interfere with the freedom of living life to its fullest - yeah whatever- life with kids is the best. It has such great rewards that it cannot be beat. Soooo EU people. Freedom is how you see it. The freedom to love a youngster unconditionally is the greatest thing in the world.

    By the way as a Catholic I am bothered that so many do not follow the teachings of the church and we are ending up with fewer and fewer Catholics due to fewer and fewer births.. Just a thought.
