Bullshit. There's enough food to feed everyone, there's enough money for basic healthcare, and the more people we have, the more wealth generators we have. There is an anti-human propoganda campaign being waged by certain elites who want the human race to suffer a cataclysmic population implosion. Their preferred methods of removing "surplus" humanity are hinted at in their "green" ideologies as being mass starvation, plagues, or natural disasters being posited as "Mother Earth's Revenge" as though the planet itself had a mind or a pile of dirt could somehow object to pieces of it being pulled up and burned for heat.
You say that because we have enough food and money and that if the population keeps growing, it will produce more wealth or "wealth generators" as you call it. This thing called "wealth" will that protect us??And what on earth do you mean by: "There is an anti-human propoganda campaign being waged by certain elites who want the human race to suffer a cataclysmic population implosion" Who are these "elites" could it be a bogie man of some ones imagination??
Also what a broad generalizing label:"Their preferred methods of removing "surplus" humanity are hinted at in their "green" ideologies as being mass starvation, plagues, or natural disasters being posited as "Mother Earth's Revenge" as though the planet itself had a mind or a pile of dirt could somehow object to pieces of it being pulled up and burned for heat".
I don't know of anybody like this,, who are these people that want people to starve to death,,is that like G Bush says: "were goona get the bad people" a imaginary bogie man.
And then who, pray tell, decides who lives and who dies? Our survival as a species has ALWAYS relied upon steady population growth - sometimes it needs to be reined in, but not that often when you look at history.
Circumstances decides, that's who. And your assumption about population growth did you make it up yourself or did you read it somewhere?
And when we fill this planet, there are others to go to. But these certain anti-human elites and intellectuals want to exterminate humans or render their populations vulnerable to the same agonies that rabbits, dolphins, or termites suffer. Disease, predators, and starvation. It's disgusting and stupid and short-sighted.
What a wounderfully easy solution to the population problem just get in your starship and fly away.
You have this fanciful imagination about some "elites" and "intelectuals" who are these people is there a club they belong too? Don't just tell me they're everywhere.
As for your "loss of the ego" theory, why don't you go first? Right now! Show us the way, oh Messiah of Death - tape it and put it on the internet. Send it to the Darwin Awards. "When Green Ideology Arrives At Its Natural Conclusion."
A little ranting at some imaginary "elites" bogieman.(Me).
Your last minute struggle to retain your individuality should highlight the fundamental flaw in your theory -whether created or evolved, individual sapience is the path that this universe directs all life and all effort. Group think is disastrous for the individual and the species.
Your comments here seem pretty dogmatic, as if you know the path the universe directs all effort. Well it's your beleif but that is all. It must be nice to have the universe all figured out.
If I seem rather vehement, its because I have spent far more time than productive arguing with "Green Anarchist" morons in my town; who simplisticly state that we need to reduce population - the morons fail to see that democracy and wealth production tend to create their own natural brakes on population growth - individualism, indolence, homosexuality, etc.
More labels "Green Anarchist" don't beleive I ever heard that one before.
So are you a democrat???
Natural brakes may be catostrophic too,, not just the ones you mention. I think you illustrate quite nicely,,the problems we have when we already know the answers.
And the thing is, even non-believers in a traditional Christian sense have an intuitive loathing for the anti-human propaganda being spewed from Green "thinkers". It's bullshit, and nonsense, and is dangerous; since it is often coopted into fascist movements. CZAR
Well I see you have quite a distaste for people that have different views than you. And you like to call them all kind of generalizing names (labels).
