«БЕДНОСТЬ» ЕВРОПЕЙСКОЙ ЦИВИЛИЗАЦИИ
European civilization is the highest historical level of development of human society. The most important feature of this level is the constantly ongoing fight against poverty which was absolutely not a characteristic of other civilizations. But the fight against poverty on a social scale is based on the redistribution of cash income in favor of needy members of society. The increase in the scale of this kind of redistribution reduces the incentives for economic growth, and therefore, there is a tendency for the stagnation of European civilization which is fraught with the possibility of its historical death. Another danger for European civilization is rooted in the problems of migration policy and the low reproducibility of the indigenous population of Europe. The lack of growth of the indigenous population undermines the need to preserve civilization in the future. Integration with Russia is one of the most important factors for the preservation of European civilization. Sanctions against Russia as one of the largest countries of European civilization do not contribute to the prosperity of this civilization.
