Catastrophic demography

In ‘Let’s Lapu-Lapu together’ – INQ7.net this beautiful and terribly sad statement:

Everybody knows that the middle class is or should be the backbone of democracy. The very poor is democracy’s burden; the unmindful super-rich, its embarrassment. Our educated middle is leaving our shores. The very poor can’t, except to DH, to OFW, to TNT. The very rich won’t, except to travel back and forth. Picture our emerging, catastrophic demography.

My only disgreement with this is that the catastrophic demography isn’t emerging -it’s already the way things are.
