Can't love this article too much:
Jonathon Porritt, former chairman of the Green party, and the heart of the Sustainable Development Commission, is back on the scene today, reminding us that the battles we are waging against global warming are not reaching the real root of the problem... population control!
You wouldn't help an alcoholic much by picking up the beer cans from around their yard, you wouldn't help a sex addict by providing free condoms at their doorstep every morning, and you certainly couldn't solve all the global warming issues of the world with advanced technology alone, when its the overpopulation of people who are causing the greatest burden on the planet.
Porritt is not advocating lining every adult male and female up for involuntary vasectomies and tubal ligation's. He is recommending that couples be taught about the importance of their responsibility for their our own carbon footprint and do what they can to reduce it. This means having fewer children, who would otherwise add a whole other imprint upon your own footprint.
His conclusions, however, are daft.
Our problem is that we have a species of glorified monkeys who have no problem eating a candy bar and throwing the wrapper on the ground -- wherever they are.
Instead of trying to stop breeding by begging educated, compassionate people to stop breeding, guaranteeing that the next generation will be dumb and discompassionate, we should urge the dummies, criminals, perverts, impoverished, etc. to stop breeding so we don't get more of them.
Oh no, that's blasphemy! Worse than racism or Satanism! More vile than Stalin or Hitler!
Yeah, well, take your hidebound thinking and shove it. You liberals -- people who believe humans as individuals are more important than a collective goal -- have basically sponsored this ecocide, and now your empire's crumbling.
It's our turn now, and we aren't addicted to insane proclamations of human value that don't correspond to reality. Most people are stupid and defective, cruel and destructive, careless and wasteful, and most of all, not very bright. They're a half-step up from monkeys.
When we took over from nature by forming civilizations, we basically agreed to be responsible for our own natural selection. Because some fear, we've been chiseling away at that idea for centuries, creating this illusion of the self as higher than reality itself -- in religion, it's called evangelical Christianity; in secular circles, it's called humanism.
Let's grow up, for once, and actually solve a problem. And all you antiquated, outdated, pathetic people who think liberalism is a solution will see how brainwashed and delusional you've been.
The Muslim population in Britain has grown by more than 500,000 to 2.4 million in just four years, according to official research collated for The Times.
The population multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society, the research by the Office for National Statistics reveals. In the same period the number of Christians in the country fell by more than 2 million.
Experts said that the increase was attributable to immigration, a higher birthrate and conversions to Islam during the period of 2004-2008, when the data was gathered.
Why is it that the whole world wants to immigrate to Europe and the USA?
Oh: because through the hard work of our ancestors, and their intelligence, we invented wealthy societies.
Why do the others not have wealth? Obviously, they weren't oppressed for all 3,000 years by the white man.
Something went wrong in their societies, obviously. Funny how it corresponds to the IQ of each nation, which corresponds to its wealth.
That's racist or classist, you say? Well, note how many white nations differ in IQ and so do their fortunes. So it's obviously not racist. Also note how class isn't mentioned. All I'm talking about is intelligence -- which as Stephen Pinker noted, is biological not "taught"
-- which seems to be distributed unevenly.
Do we cry over the unevenness, dooming ourselves to the past, or move on? Some helpful words:
Mankind does not represent a development of the better of the stronger in the way that it is believed today. 'Progress' is merely a modern idea, that is to say a false idea. The European of today is of far less value than the European of the Renaissance; onward development is not by any means, by any necessity the same thing as elevation, advance, strengthening.
In another sense there are cases of individual success constantly appearing in the most various parts of the earth and fro the most various cultures in which a high type does manifest itself: something which in relation to collective mankind is a sort of superman. Such chance occurrences of great success have always been possible and perhaps always will be possible. And even entire races, tribes, nations can under certain circumstances represent such a lucky hit.
- Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ
Knock yourselves out. (By "race" he means what we in modern times would call ethnicity, like Finnish or Nordic.)
