America’s population will dwindle as millennials and gen z will not increase birth rates
Simone and Malcolm Collins say we are facing a population crisis-read their article at the NY Post here:
Malcolm Collins and Simone Collins, authors of The Pragmatist’s Guide to Crafting Religion, are the elite intellectual leaders of the pro-natalist movement, which encourages the bearing of children and support of a higher birthrate to save Western Civilization.
We live in a world that is quickly secularizing. How do we fortify our society against the erosion and assault on our traditions?
In The Pragmatist’s Guide to Crafting Religion, Malcolm and Simone Collins focus both on how we can fortify traditions against decay and how we can build new traditions out of whole cloth.
The Collins’ warn of the catastrophic effects a demographic collapse will have on society and assert that people are dramatically underestimate how quickly birth rates are falling and how widespread the phenomenon is.
The Pragmatist’s Guide to Crafting Religion studies the origins of ‘wokeism’ through the lens of of viral memetics — how this dangerous and polarizing mind virus has spread with the invention of social media and the internet era.
“The human brain evolved in conditions with much lower population levels and did not develop the memetic immune system needed to deal with the internet era.”
Malcom and Simone Collins study this phenomenon and provide solutions to fortify our minds and society from the ills of wokeism.
Bad governance likewise stands behind many of society’s ills (from today’s political polarization to mass deaths caused by the Great Leap Forward).
The Pragmatist’s Guide to Crafting Religion is the fourth installment of The Pragmatist’s Guide book series, all of which have been written as the work of a non-profit institution dedicated to helping people think through the big questions in life without leading them to a specific answer. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to the nonprofit and not the author.

Damar Hamlin Goes to a Game; Is Everything Fine Now?
Jane M. Orient, M.D.
We are all grateful that Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin survived his encounters with sudden death (two encounters—his heart stopped twice). He has expressed gratitude for the thousands who prayed for him, and he was delighted to be able to attend a Buffalo Bills-Bengals playoff game just 20 days after his collapse.
But will he be on the playing field again? He appears to have escaped serious permanent injury, but what will his cardiologist say about the risk of a recurrence?
Some were quick to diagnose commotio cordis from the impact to his chest when he tackled another player, but others dismissed the possibility. It might be rare, even unprecedented in football, but one can’t prove it to be impossible
So, what to do now?
First, we should recognize that sudden death is not a new phenomenon. The unexpected sudden death that affects an apparently healthy individual is a nightmarish threat that has accompanied mankind throughout history. The first recorded instance may have occurred in ancient Egypt between 2625-2475 B.C. Hippocrates, who lived in the 4th century B.C., gave a general description of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in his Aphorisms II,41. Scientific understanding of SCD began in the 19th century when British physiologist John A MacWilliam first proposed a rational electrophysiological hypothesis as the most likely explanation.
Leading cardiology experts consider SCD to be “one of the most challenging tasks in Cardiology.” This calamity is not as rare as the conventional wisdom would like us to believe. It is estimated that it may account for 15-20 percent of deaths in western countries and is a cause of the majority of deaths due to cardiovascular factors. The risk is higher in competitive athletes (about 1 in 7,000), but the absolute number of cases is higher in recreational sports. No contact is required.
Because of its importance and frequency, one might assume that research into causes and prevention would be very well funded. But for every year of healthy life lost, the National Institutes of Health invests only $7 in research on SCD, versus $284 for diabetes, $89 for stroke, and $53 for ischemic heart disease. And things are getting worse: allocations from NIH to research cardiac arrest have decreased from $35.4 million to $28.5 million during the past decade. The $40 million spent in 2015 out of the NIH’s $21.2 billion budget amounted to less than 0.2 percent.
Among the many reasons for neglecting the funding was the public’s surprising lack of awareness about the importance of cardiac arrests.
Cases like Hamlin’s, however, may be the stimulus for very important research. It is not only that the spectacular collapse of an NFL star or other celebrity attracts a lot of sensational media coverage. It’s not just the individual tragedies. The actual number of cases is increasing at such a disturbing rate that the public is finally noticing it.
A surge of adrenalin with extraordinary exertion may trigger the fatal rhythm disorder. A surge of hormones just before awakening might explain how young people die in their beds. But what makes the heart’s electrical system more irritable?
The current spike in reports of SCD just happens to coincide with push to get everybody injected with COVID-19 vaccines. Although your vaccination status must be made known to ticket takers at a concert, it seems to be too sensitive to include in news reports on SCD.
What can impair your heart’s electrical system? The differential diagnosis includes trauma, a congenital (birth) defect, infection, inflammation, autoimmune damage, toxic effect, and drug effect. Damage from the spike protein that COVID injections cause your body to make, and/or the immune response to it, is a plausible mechanism. How to demonstrate it? Patients who die should have an autopsy, with tissue preserved for tests, such as histopathological staining or chemical analysis for toxins, that may become available later. An autopsy should be standard in all unexpected deaths, but is rarely done for financial reasons. This should be a priority for SCD research funding.
With today’s electronic health records, it should be possible to collate massive data on exposures. Americans are ingesting enormous amounts of drugs, both illegal and prescription. They also receive an unprecedented number of vaccines. The COVID products are so different that some say they should not be called vaccines. However, all vaccines affect the immune system, by design. Immunology is extremely complex, varies greatly in individuals, and is not well understood.
Instead of speculating about climate change, gas stoves, minuscule increases in dust particles (PM2.5s) in the air, 5G, plastic bottles, etc., let’s try to find an answer to an age-old but dramatically increasing problem.
Damar Hamlin was saved by immediate, excellent medical care, and an automatic external defibrillator. These are not available to most patients who have SCD. We need to prevent the occurrence, but first we need to know the cause.
7:35 Kevin Starrett with Oregon Firearms Federation www.OregonFirearms.org. We discuss new legislation in the state session, state of gun rights, Measure 114 status.
8:10 Guest: Dr. Richard Gallagher, author of Demonic Foes: My Twenty-Five Years as a Psychiatrist Investigating Possessions, Diabolic Attacks, and the
Board Certified Psychiatrist and Professor of Psychiatry at New York Medical, Psychoanalyst at Columbia University, and Author Dr. Richard Gallagher
Successful New York psychiatrist Richard Gallagher was skeptical yet intrigued when a hard-nosed, no-nonsense Catholic priest asked him to examine a woman for a possible exorcism. Meeting her, Gallagher was astonished. The woman’s behavior defied logic. In an instant, she could pinpoint a person’s secret weaknesses. She knew how individuals she’d never known had died, including Gallagher’s own mother, who passed away after a lengthy battle with ovarian cancer. She spoke fluently in multiple languages, including Latin—but only when she was in a trance.
This was not psychosis, Gallagher concluded. It was, in his scientific estimation, what could only be described as paranormal ability. The woman wasn’t mentally disturbed—she was possessed. This remarkable case was the first of many that Gallagher would encounter. Sought after today by leaders of all faiths—ministers, priests, rabbis, and imams, Gallagher has spent a quarter-century studying demonic activity and exorcisms throughout history and has witnessed more cases than any other psychiatrist in the world today.
In this eerie and enthralling book, Gallagher chronicles his most famous cases for the first time, including:
- A professional who claimed her spiritualist mother had “assigned” her a spirit who “turned on her.”
- A petite woman—”90 pounds soaking wet”—who threw a 200-pound Lutheran deacon across the room to the horror of onlookers in a church hall;
- And “Julia,” the so-called Satanic queen and self-described witch, who exhibited “the most harrowing” case, a “once-in-a-century” possession.
- Going beyond horror movies and novels, Demonic Foes takes you deep into this hidden world, sharing in full detailthese true-life tales of demonic possession.

6:35 Curtis Houck, Managing Editor for NewsBusters at the Media Research Center
A California court released the bodycam and surveillance videos of the attack on Paul Pelosi, revealing the footage of what actually happened on the scene. The videos match Miguel Almaguer’s reporting, so why did NBC suspend him?
Curtis Houck, managing editor for NewsBusters at the Media Research Center, is available for interview.
Will Almaguer receive an apology? NBC News failed to provide any explanation whatsoever for why they not only suspended Almaguer, but whether any producers were suspended as well as what specifically in his reporting on the incident neglected to meet their standards and practices.
