Somebody should tell the Berkeley City Council that population is already ‘stabilized’ and headed down on a global basis and that global warming is a hoax. People who are given to receive delusion seem to have plenty to share with everyone else, and Berkeley is no exception.
The UN’s Sustainable Development propaganda parrots overpopulation is a major cause of environmental decay and is based on demonstrably false science. Women are seduced into this lie and then convinced that their most noble act is to give up their right to have children.
With a twisted sense of value on human life, suicide machines will now be available as ‘open source’ plans for anyone in the world to download and create. Propaganda will convince many weakened minds that it is in the best interest of the planet if they were to check out early. This is reminiscent of the movie Soylent Green, where people voluntarily checked into euthanasia centers to be killed.
The radically extreme agenda of Technocracy is so radical that most people cannot wrap their head around the reality of it. You cannot make this stuff up! However, these radical Technocrats are the people with the most power and influence throughout the world.
Malthus was short-sighted and Paul Ehrlich was a fool to apply his science of entomology (the study of insects) to human population. However, both had a mind stained by Scientism, which holds that discoverable truth is only found through science. Today’s fact is that the birth rate is falling like a rock.
It is sad that so many young couples have bought the lie of over-population and then drunk the cool-aid of action to not have any children. This not only terminates their own family tree, but denies one of the greatest pleasures in life. Technocracy is cruel in using science to achieve such social outcomes.
Dr. Tim Ball makes an important correlation that development drives population down, not up. This was likely well-understood by the creators of Agenda 21 in 1992, when they called for a reduced global population in order to achieve Sustainable Development. In other words, the concept of population reduction is implicit in the concept of Sustainable Development.
Ehrlich peddled his eco-doom snake-oil to millions but not one of his bombastic predictions have come to pass in the last 50 years. In short, Ehrlich demonstrated a Technocrat mindset by claiming his ‘science’ was the only truth of the matter and all other ‘deniers’ would pay a big price for rejecting his warnings.
This is a thoughtful article and an important part of the history of modern ethics: Fletcher was an Episcopalian priest who converted to atheism before launching into situational ethics in the early 1970s. This twisted system of ethics has enabled modern Technocrats to do anything their mind can dream up.
United Nations zealots claim that planet earth can only sustain a population of 600-800 million people, but they never declare how to get rid of the other 6.5 billion. The demographic charts are already in steep decline because of reduced birth-rates, and now assisted suicide is attacking the elder side of the population equation. The proposition is when you are consuming a disproportionate amount of resources during your end-of-life struggles, then it is you duty to die.
