Philip Pilkington joins editor R. R. Reno to talk about his article “Generation Against Generation,” from the December print edition. They discuss the causes of demographic decline in the developed world, the role immigration plays in industrial policy, and the looming generational strife that will emerge if policymakers fail to promote a natalist agenda.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
