With Maclean’s, the simplest description would be that it is more or less the Canadian Time, though, while over the decades Time has become somewhat less right wing, Maclean’s has moved in the other direction. On October 20, Maclean’s carried an excerpt from a book by Mark Steyn in which he argues that, as the title puts it, “The future belongs to Islam.”In brief summary, Steyn sees Islam (equated with Muslims) becoming dominant in the world. He compares low birth rates in the West and in Japan with high rates among Muslims. He says that the low birth rates will make the welfare state (he calls it social democracy) doomed, unsustainable. Then, he identifies a Western loss of confidence in the face of growing confidence among Muslims about their social destiny.
