Almost everything the writer says is stupid… All of his conclusions are not supported by any evidence he puts forward, the small amount and low-quality evidence he does use are more like useless illustrations than foundations for any argument. Rather than I criticise it point by point and waste a lot of my time why don't you tell me which parts you find particularly intelligent and I can reply to those?
I will however say that the final paragraph of the part 1 where he puts forward: "My supposition, which will be expounded upon in the next post about the Age of Malthusian Industrialism, is that the core of these differences [fertility rates] is now (though not a century ago, and barely so 50 years ago) genetically determined."
- Despite claiming to expound upon this in the next parts, he doesn't, he never actually gives any supporting evidence or rationale as to why he believes this supposition later in the article. Therefore it's incorrect for him to argue that the causes of the current fertility rates are genetically determined and use it as the basis of his entire article. Even if the supposition were to be true, the rest of the article just continues to be full of unfounded speculation and illogical conclusions
