Speaking of stupid people who should die..

..here is a group whose aim is to make humans extinct, for the sake of the planet. Seriously. Make no mistake about it, the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement isn't anti-child, it's more like anti-human. The VHE is dedicated to phasing out the human race in the interest of the health of the Earth, founder Les Knight told Wednesday's San Francisco Chronicle. With 16,000 people born per hour and a current global population of 6.5 billion, there are already more than enough people on the planet, Knight said. [..] "Wherever humans live, not much else lives," Knight said. "It isn't that we're evil and want to kill everything -- it's just how we live." Knight, who had a vasectomy at age 25, emphasizes VHE likes kids and says many of its members are parents as well as children. Interesting. So I went to this group's website and here is what I found: VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It's a movement advanced by people who care about life on planet Earth. We're not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters. We don't carry on about how the human race has shown itself to be a greedy, amoral parasite on the once-healthy face of this planet. That type of negativity offers no solution to the inexorable horrors which human activity is causing. Rather, The Movement presents an encouraging alternative to the callous exploitation and wholesale destruction of the Earth's ecology. As VHEMT Volunteers know, the hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species: Homo sapiens... us. 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, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Mother Nature's "experiments" have done throughout the eons. Good health will be restored to the Earth's ecology... to the "life form" known by many as Gaia. Fantastic. They want to save the planet by having us all dead. And in cliche lefty wacko enviromentalist fashion, they are accusing their enemies of being greedy and selfish. In the end, the real "enemies" are human greed, ignorance, and oppression. We can achieve more by promoting generosity, awareness, and freedom than we can by vainly kicking at a buttless foe. Great progress will be made toward improving the quality of life on Earth by countering greed with responsibility, ignorance with education, and oppression with freedom. By having people dead. Isn't this movement great? I mean check out their "license to breed" intelligence test. It informs you if you are smart enough to let your genes pass on through breeding. And It's a one question test. Those guys are geniuses. I suggest they set an example for all of us and die first. After all, humans are greedy, selfish parasites that should be removed from this planet. I say they should go first. Be a role model, you know? Crazy bastards!

If they are so into this why don't they just do a mass sucide? Talk all of their lefty wacko's into it and just do it? The world would be so much a better place if we didn't have to deal with all of the PITA's anymore. It used to be that we just laughed at these people but PC doctrine has made it so every weirdo has to be heard. Leave the earth and leave us alone!

I did not read anything about killing people off, just not reproducing.

Pwit, no they didn't mention that but my point is why should decent people not reproduce more decent people and if they(VHEMT) want less people, start with themselves!

Yep, what do you think the original abortion, Planned Parenthood was all about? Next will be euthanizing retirees, since they've outlived their usefulness and are sucking up needless resources, defouling the precious earth for way too long. Just watch.

The planet is grossly overpopulated. Britain, for example, has ten times the population that could live comfortably without causing too much damage. Norway is about right. How about Egypt? Is it importing food? ____What practical suggestions do you guys have for getting the population back down to sustainable levels (maybe 1% of what it is now) other than people not reproducing?

All they have to do is wait for the next pandemic.

Don Cox:

And that is exactly what it is all about, reducing the human population significantly, which will eliminate the need for their extinction.
Overpopulation could actually be the source of all the trouble we are seeing today, and that which we will see in the future. I know it is the main problem in Egypt.

"why should decent people not reproduce more decent people"___Because there are too many decent people already. We need to replace the six thousand million people now alive by six hundred million people, or fewer. That means, the average couple should have one child or less for a few generations. The Russians are doing well.

Good health insurance is a great aspect to many individuals in this country.

Is it so hard to see that there is a population problem? Is it so hard to convince yourself that humans alone are to blame for so much suffering. We are not the only divine creatures here. We depend on the earth for our happiness and it is now treated like a slave. I encourage a rereading of "Omelas" were everyone's happiness depends on the complete suffering of one. The one here is not a child but mother earth. I agree with planned parenthood for a more enlightened future.
