Apocalyptic Daze

After you:
The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, a group of people who have decided not to reproduce, has announced: “Each time another one of us decides to not add another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom. When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth’s biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory.” -- Pascal Bruckner, City Journal Spring 2012

Your Say

Why don't these wackos jump in front of a bus, and help earth’s biosphere return to its former glory that much faster?

If only all our enemies were on this program.

By and large, the earth could stand improvement long before man showed up. It ain't all delightful. If man made half the mistakes nature does there would be continual revolution.

I marvel at these twits' fixation on nonreproduction as a means of population control when there are so very many other effective means of cutting the population without even killing babies.
Pestilence, wars, famines for example.

These people are going to get bored waiting for their adolescent rhetoric to take effect. At some point, long before they feel the obligation to make the jump themselves, it will occur to them that there is only one way to make sure their brain-damaged dream becomes a reality.

They are a sinister cult, and they will have to be dealt with at some point in the future.

You know they have their situation in hand.
