MEN'S HEALTH ANALYST: Armin Brott, aka Mr. Dad, is a spokesman for the Men's Health Network. He is author of The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to The Toddler Years, a nationally published columnist on manhood and fatherhood, and Host of 'Positive Parenting,' a weekly talk show.
“I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birthrate and the rapidly declining birthrate,” Musk explained on Monday evening, as recorded by the New York Post.
“And yet, so many people, including smart people, think that there are too many people in the world and think that the population is growing out of control,” Musk continued. “It’s completely the opposite. Please look at the numbers — if people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble, mark my words.”
Following COVID-19 and subsequent lockdown measures, American birth rates have plummeted to their lowest levels in nearly a century.
