In the spirit of true progressive delirium, consider the website VHEMT.org, home of "The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement."
Its mission, in two sentences, is Al Gore's wet dream: Phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth’s biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.
Never mind that the Ijakiedjjijdejsiaj volcano (okay, I admit it: I just hit a bunch of random letters rather than look up the real name) spewed out more ash and carbon dioxide than humanity over the entire span of recorded history.
Humanity's brief sojourn on Earth has, in a nutshell, been largely a force for good. Our quest for scientific discovery, civilization, and exploration has improved the human condition and, in many cases, the planet itself. We are part of nature's God and nature itself is part of us. VHEMT defies God and nature by vilifying the human spirit.
George Carlin was right when he said, "The planet isn't going anywhere... WE ARE."
Now, I would never encourage anyone to commit suicide, though in the case of VHEMT, they'd probably consider it a compliment.
But if you someday come across a VHEMT member who is, say, drowning, I would urge you to try to save that person, but not if doing so is in any way inconvenient for you.
