I support this movement!
The only thing dumber than this:
“We can’t be breeding right now,” says Les Knight. “It’s obvious that the intentional creation of another [human being] by anyone anywhere can’t be justified today.”
Knight is the founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, an informal network of people dedicated to phasing out the human race in the interest of the health of the Earth.
Is when ace reporter Gregory Dicum says:
Knight’s position might sound extreme at first blush, but there’s an undeniable logic to it: Human activities — from development to travel, from farming to just turning on the lights at night — are damaging the biosphere. More people means more damage. So if fewer people means less destruction, wouldn’t no people at all be the best solution for the planet?
No, Mr. Dicum, it sounds extreme at first blush and any subsequent blush. The fact that you’re trying to pass it off as logical may be one of the most irresponsible things I’ve seen. And to all you folks who think this is a good idea, I’m glad you’re choosing not to breed. One more:
“May we live long and die out,” says Naomi Thompson, quoting the VHEMT slogan. Thompson, who is in her late 20s and works as an analyst for Wells Fargo in San Francisco, has also concluded that childbearing is irresponsible. “It’s not about wanting to kill people, but it’s selfish to have a kid at this point when so many aren’t getting the love and attention that they deserve.”
No wonder they’re taking guns from you people.
