Elon Musk claims 'Japan will eventually cease to exist' because of its declining birth rate
According to the article, Japan's population dropped by a record 644,000 people to just over 125.5 million in 2021, which saw 831,000 births and 1.44 million deaths. The East Asian country’s population decline is now in its 11th consecutive year.

In reality:

reducing Japan's population by 100 million would merely bring it closer to the pre-Meiji population, as I previously discussed here:

which was a population (while still high) at least had not yet exceeded the carrying capacity of the land, and hence is what we should be actively trying to get back to ASAP. And at least back then Japanese were not Eurocentrists, whereas now this is how they respond to Musk:

Master, thank you for raising the issue.

This Eurocentrist Japan is what Musk is actually worried about ceasing to exist.
