The Suicidal of the West: Europe Being Led by Childless Baby Boomers

Written by  M.J. Randolph

Being childless is not uncommon, but a recent spate of global leaders have ascended to their positions without also having had families. In addition to France's President Emmanuel Macron, a Washington Examiner article by James McPherson points out the other childless global leaders:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also has no children. British prime minister Theresa May has no children. Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children. Holland's Mark Rutte has no children. Sweden's Stefan Löfven has no biological children. Luxembourg's Xavier Bettel has no children. Scotland's Nicola Sturgeon has no children. Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

In other words, the sheer number of European leaders without children is too much of a trend to ignore, especially if you think of the psychological effect children have on one's perspective. McPherson points out that most of these leaders are of a certain age. Though Macron is only 39, the rest are Baby Boomers, a generation that has not been characterized by generosity. According to Tom Wolfe, they're characterized by their incredible self-focus:

Most people, historically, have not lived their lives as if thinking, "I have only one life to live." Instead they have lived as if they are living their ancestors' lives and their offspring's lives and perhaps their neighbors' lives as well.
