"May we live long and die out"

“The hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species: Homo sapiens... us,” Knight stated, according to the VHEMT web site. “Each time another one of us decides to not add another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom.”(link)

Agent Smith has gotten out of the Matrix apparently.
Hall and his colleagues found that a single new American born in the 1990s will be responsible, over his or her life, for 22 million pounds of liquid waste and 2.2 million pounds each of solid waste and atmospheric waste. He or she will have a lifetime consumption of 4,000 barrels of oil, 1.5 million pounds of minerals and 62,000 pounds of animal products that will entail the slaughter of 2,000 animals.

Are they actually saying that human life is not worth 2,000 animals? The waste stuff doesn't sound so good, but I'm hoping that these guys have at least a higher moral standard than Hitler.

'Cause Hitler was a vegetarian. Hitler believed that killing animals was immoral. No I am not joking.
"I really do love kids," she continues. (Thompson and Knight say they were raised in large, happy families.) "I know it might seem odd for someone who really likes kids to have this stance on breeding -- women are mothering, nurturing people, and I definitely have that in me. But women in this society feel a lot of pressure to have babies, and I would like to see more people expressing that by adopting instead." (link)

Look, Now maybe I'm the one on the hallucigens, and I'm all hoped up on weird hippie crap, because one of us must be for any of this to make any sense. Women feel pressured to have babies? Are these the same women that continously have lower and lower birth rates? Are these the same women that are continously using the pill more and more despite signs of some adverse health effects? Are these the same women being encouraged to have abortions every year? Are these the same women continously being encouraged to wait longer and longer to have children in favour of their career?

We must be living in two different worlds or something lady.
