Demographics and Civilizational Decline

Session 10 - Friday, June 23 - 2:00 PM to 3:20 PM

Introductory Course

Small civilizations are overrun; big civilizations destroy themselves. The demographics of the industrial world point towards a deep decline. The demographic winter stems from a crisis of faith. This course will explore historical precedents for civilizational decline, analyze current trends, and address the question: can the decline of the West be reversed? The circumstances of Christian, Muslim and Jewish civilization will be examined in pursuit of an answer.
