Immigration and the Fall of France

When a country goes bad, this means its statist institutions are destroying the networks that constitute civil society. If women don't want to bear children, it means they think society is not providing a good context for child rearing. Short of raping women into bearing children nonetheless, nothing can make them have children until society improves. Certainly, you can import foreign women to bear children, because they don't care about the evil of said society, because they come from worse countries where an even worse evil reigns, because they either reject the society anyway or embrace its evil as an improvement. But this will only make it worse for the people previously in that society, by disintegrating the society further and spreading more evil. The solution cannot be immigration. The solution needs be removing the oppression that makes people unhappy.
