The following article is just more proof of how Social Security KILLS nations. Japan is dying because they don’t have children. They do not have children because they now depend on OTHER PEOPLE’s Children to care from them in tHeir old age. But what happens when your neighbors don’t have any children either?
Socialism is Satanic.
The world’s oldest country is about to get even older.
New figures released by the government estimate people aged 65 and older will make up nearly 40 percent of the population of Japan 50 years from now. Even more troubling, the country’s population is expected to shrink by 30 percent, with birth rates showing little signs of improvement.
The forecast, conducted by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research every five years, paints a dire picture of Japan at a time when the country is already struggling to support its elderly – roughly a quarter of the population – amid a shrinking workforce.
In the last few decades, Japan’s social security budget has soared 15 percent, an increase of 1 trillion yen per year. 50 years ago, there were a dozen workers for every social security retiree. 50 years from now, there will just be one.
