Something is wrong if one species can drive all other species off the planet — 5 Comments

  1. Whenever I see people congratulated for having another baby, or parents who are basically still kids themselves, dragging 3, 4 or 5 kids around town, I cringe as I think the same thing. Too many people. Television also continues to crank out the tear-jerking formula episodes of our favorite sit-com actors “growing up” and “having the baby”. I’m so tired of it. It’s a cultural thing too. In the Mexican culture I see little girls indoctrinated heavily to live to become mommies at an early age, as they are even called “little mommy” at like 5 years old. I know all cultures do this but it’s to the exclusion of everything else in this one. I personally never had kids and have felt “out of the club” in most social circles.

  2. I’ll get in trouble here. The issue isn’t that humans are so bad and wicked just that there are way too many. Reduced birth rate will fix just about everything from extinction of animal species to global warming and war and bigotry. We are all fighting for a smaller and smaller piece of the pie. There used to be a movement called zero population growth.

    • Agreed. I like a lot of people an so on, but the human race as a whole are going about things incorrectly. And one aspect is the the continually rising population. This is unsustainable. It is thoughtless. It’s mainly in poorer countries. Germany has a declining population for instance. Humans are a sort of a disease on the planet. We have to start controlling birth rates. And we have to put aside the idea of permanent economic growth and think about stable flat-lining economies and greater international cooperation. That’s what I think for what it is worth.

  3. No one could have said it better. I don’t know that it’s ever been said better. I feel exactly the same way, and have all my life. It didn’t take the crisis it is now for me to have seen this coming. I’m not smart, just observant. It’s just math, maybe a little algebra and the willingness to see humans for what they are. Just shaking my head in sorrow, but nothing pisses me off more.
