Ian said it is challenging to find solutions in a liberally oriented, secular society the world is facing There is a risk of severe population decline. He added that the emphasis on traditional values could help boost birth rates.
“Speaking of population collapse, nobody wants to hear that and the solution won’t sit well as an answer for a liberal-leaning, secular society, but if you want to increase the birth rate you have to Emphasize traditional values,” Ian tweeted.
