“People aged 30 to 34 — 60% of them in 1990 had one child. Now it's 27%,” he said. “People are opting out of America. They're not optimistic about it. They're not having kids. Young people aren't having sex. They're not meeting, and they're not mating. The pool of emotionally and economically viable men shrinks every day, which lessens household formation. So we have a real issue.”

About the only way Americans under 30 have a child is to get on Medicaid.
While the periphery breaks down rather slowly at first, the capital cities of the hegemon should collapse suddenly and violently.

This will be my next project in this Dark Age Hovel: to go through all 214 pages of this hovel and summarize the factual information regarding the outputs that the managerial elite class overseeing the United States has actually generated.
The post above is an example of what is being referred to as an output. "“People aged 30 to 34 — 60% of them in 1990 had one child. Now it's 27%." I want to list every output of this type succinctly in one post, followed by the sources.

The black and Latino population doesn't appear to have any problems having loads of kids. The chemicals in the food and micro-plastics in the water don't seem to be affecting them at all. My tax bill reflects this...

Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century
Dmitry Orlov
December 14, 2010
The Soviet Union was entirely self-sufficient when it came to labor. Both before and after the collapse, skilled labor was one of its main exports, along with oil, weapons, and industrial machinery. Not so with the United States, where not only is most of the manufacturing being carried out abroad, but a lot of service back home is being provided by immigrants as well. This runs the gamut from farm labor, landscaping, and office cleaning to the professions, such as engineering and medicine, without which society and its infrastructure would unravel. Most of these people came to the United States to enjoy the superior standard of living — for as long as it remains superior. Many of them will eventually head home, leaving a gaping hole in the social fabric.

I have had a chance to observe quite a few companies in the U.S. from the inside, and have spotted a certain constancy in the staffing profile. At the top, there is a group of highly compensated senior lunch-eaters. They tend to spend all of their time pleasing each other in various ways, big and small. They often hold advanced degrees in disciplines such as Technical Schmoozing and Relativistic Bean-counting. They are obsessive on the subject of money, and cultivate a posh country set atmosphere, even if they are just one generation out of the coal mines. Ask them to solve a technical problem — and they will politely demur, often taking the opportunity to flash their wit with a self-deprecating joke or two.

Somewhat further down the hierarchy are the people who actually do the work. They tend to have fewer social graces and communication skills, but they do know how to get the work done. Among them are found the technical innovators, who are often the company’s raison d’être.

More often than not, the senior lunch-eaters at the top are native-born Americans, and, more often than not, the ones lower down are either visiting foreigners or immigrants. These find themselves in a variety of situations, from the working visa holders who are often forced to choose between keeping their job and going home, to those who are waiting for a green card and must play their other cards just right, to those who have one, to citizens.

The natives at the top always try to standardize the job descriptions and lower the pay scale of the immigrants at the bottom, playing them against each other, while trying to portray themselves as super-achieving entrepreneurial mavericks who can’t be pinned down to a mere set of marketable skills. The opposite is often the case: the natives are often the commodity items, and would perform similar functions whether their business were biotechnology or salted fish, while those who work for them may be unique specialists, doing what has never been done before.

It is no surprise that this situation should have come about. For the last few generations, native-born Americans have preferred disciplines such as law, communications, and business administration, while immigrants and foreigners tended to choose the sciences and engineering. All their lives the natives were told to expect prosperity without end, and so they felt safe in joining professions that are mere embroidery on the fabric of an affluent society.

This process became known as "brain drain" — America’s extraction of talent from foreign lands, to its advantage, and to their detriment. This flow of brain power is likely to reverse direction, leaving the U.S. even less capable of finding ways to cope with its economic predicament. This may mean that, even in areas where there will be ample scope for innovation and development, such as restoration of rail service, or renewable energy, America may find itself without the necessary talent to make it happen.

Though it's fair to say that a lot of this came about because we're in the maintenance phase of a declining civilization and instead of quality of technical talent, cost is paramount. His overall ideas seem correct, though.

Anyway, this is another way Americans lost contact with reality where the whole gamut of hands on jobs are done by immigrants.
Dmitry Orlov is a Putin shill and an America hater. He lies more often than he walks. He said in a deranged, wild eyed interview that the Crimean Tatars supported the annexation of the Crimea because 'they wanted to be with their Tartan brothers in Russia.' Yeah, right...

Peter Schiff (on his You Tube) went around New Orleans in 2008 or 2009 and interviewed white Americans working as bar tenders, doormen, and boucers. Virtually all of them had STEM degrees, and yet could not find jobs. One boucer had a degree in robotics. They said their applications were ignored. It's not that Americans have dropped the ball and chosen Art History over science; it's that wokery has left white males unemployable.

POCs are still cranking out kids at a much higher rate than whites are. Micro plastics and laptop radiation don't seem to affect them. Also, I wonder how true those stats even are. I honestly do. The Biden econ and crime stats are completely fraudualent. Why not these stats too? It also relects that whites have given up on the future.

This is just graduate students in the STEM fields. Does not include undergrad.

The bullet point output from the article in this case would be "Between 50% and 82% of the full-time graduate students in key technical fields at U.S. universities are international students."

Seems to support the poster's opinion that white males have given up.

Back in the 80s, I remember med school being mostly white male. Now it is supposedly mostly female and non white males.
