Before 1930, every Christian denomination opposed contraception. As a result, Whites were 36 percent of the world's population in 1900.
The combined population of India and China today, is 36 percent of the world's population. The percentage of Whites in the world's population in 1900, was similar to the combined percentage of India and China to the world's population today.
Western civilization in 1900, was not just dominant because of the West's science and technology. The West had demographic power, that gave Whites a majority in 3 continents (Europe, North America and Australia). Whites were a large minority in the 4th continent, South America.
In the US, the population increased from 5.3 million in 1800 to 76 million in 1900, an amazing 14 times increase of the population.
The fact that all Christian denominations opposed contraception before 1930, was an important factor explaining why Western civilization ended up ruling the world. By viewing its babies as blessings, Western civilization was deeply blessed by God.
Global politics is a numbers game. If the people of the West fail to reclaim the wisdom of their ancestors, Western civilization will die.
Before 1930, All Christian Denominations Opposed Contraception
Sex is a need. Like food. And the OT message of “be fruitful and multiply” was replaced by Paul’s (i paraphrase) “it is better to remain single, but if you are horny, get married so you don’t sin.”
Nothing there about contraception being good or bad.
What does our race have to do with anything?
Not much existed in the way of contraception in 1930.
Prehistoric condoms and some crude spermacides were about it. I doubt the topic even came up to anywhere near the extent it does today.
Was Western Civilization invented by Kalahari Bushmen?
Somewhere along the way people lost sight of the fact that children are a blessing from The Lord.
What’s wrong with birth control?
Agreed. This vanity post sounds like a KKK promotion on race.
We have been warned. Read Humanae Vitae.
I have read Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina”. There is a scene where Levin describes urban couples who in my comprehension sterilize themselves. This is related to Anna sterilizing herself after giving girth to her bastard child. Levin describes how unnatural it is.
>>>Not much existed in the way of contraception in 1930
Margaret Sanger opened her first birth control clinic in 1916. There was a lot of contraceptive knowledge around at that time, and most of it came from France. Christian churches were aware of contraceptives, and they preached against them.
Catechism of the Catholic Church
2399 The regulation of births represents one of the aspects of responsible fatherhood and motherhood. Legitimate intentions on the part of the spouses do not justify recourse to morally unacceptable means (for example, direct sterilization or contraception).
2370 Periodic continence, that is, the methods of birth regulation based on self-observation and the use of infertile periods, is in conformity with the objective criteria of morality. These methods respect the bodies of the spouses, encourage tenderness between them, and favor the education of an authentic freedom. In contrast, “every action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible” is intrinsically evil:
Thus the innate language that expresses the total reciprocal self-giving of husband and wife is overlaid, through contraception, by an objectively contradictory language, namely, that of not giving oneself totally to the other. This leads not only to a positive refusal to be open to life but also to a falsification of the inner truth of conjugal love, which is called upon to give itself in personal totality. . . . The difference, both anthropological and moral, between contraception and recourse to the rhythm of the cycle . . . involves in the final analysis two irreconcilable concepts of the human person and of human sexuality.

>>>Whats wrong with birth control?
I am not passing judgement on career women who use birth control. I am just discussing the demographic situation as it existed before 1930.
So Christianity is a white thing?
“our” race? What race is that? Is everyone here the same race?
Yes but the track record of these Austrailoid Caucasian hybrids and the fact once they establish in the west or become more financially successful in their homelands their birth rate cliff dives
It’s a weird paradox but comfort and ease of life means fewer kids
Plus less agrarian pursuits do too
Btw yes I know Brahmin class Indians are considered white as me
And some are
To be honest I’m not that impressed
Neither them or Pakis much less Bangladesh are Japan or Germany smarts wise
I think it is only the Amish, old older Mennonites, Catholics and some independents like the quiver full folks that haven’t accepted it yet. The Amish, old order Mennonites and Catholics haven’t accepted civil divorce and remarriage either to my understanding.
>>>This vanity post sounds like a KKK promotion on race
My post never promoted the idea that any race is superior to any other. I credited the success of Western civilization to Europeans following old-fashioned Christian teachings, not to their biological characteristics.
