Surely, no one is contemplating such a thing, right?
The genius that is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has proposed a new deep philosophical question: Should millennials have babies?
How would our species survive if we don’t reproduce?
AOC and her fellow fear mongers on the left fear that humans won’t exist in 100 years — unless we stop having babies.
If you are trying to figure out that logical argument, you are not alone.
In an Instagram livestream, the brilliant Cortez made this mind-blowing statement: “Basically, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead,
I think, young people to have a legitimate question: Is it okay to still have children?”
Quick, someone get some smelling salts; I need to make sure I am still conscious.
We must be living in a parallel universe. Surely, no one is contemplating such a thing, right?
Sadly, there are many people who are contemplating this dilemma: Do I have kids and risk them living in a climatic Armageddon or have kids and have their carbon footprint increase climate change and bring about the end of the planet?
According to the Business Insider, 38% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 agreed that climate change should be a consideration in the decision to have children. For Americans between the ages of 30 and 44, 34% said climate change should be a factor in having children.
So much stupid in the world.
Our society is starting to look like the movie “Ideocracy.” If you haven’t seen it, you may want too. It is the best predictor of our current and future society.
The debate about climate change has delved into the world of the absurd.
Even if you think the planet is warming due to human actions, you have got to think the responses to fixing this problem are extreme.
Fear mongering has led to claims that we only have 12 years to save the planet. If we fail to cut industrial output by 50%, then we are doomed as a species.
Start the countdown clock to doomsday.
It’s all over folks.
The Democrats recently introduced the “Green New Deal.” The plan calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel energy in the U.S. — including oil and natural gas. The plan would eliminate all cars, planes, boats and trucks.
Real practical plan.
That ought to be easy.
All we have to do is undue thousands of years of human industrial achievement and return us to the time before the invention of the wheel.
These people have completely fallen off their rockers!
Last year, and op-ed in the New York “Slimes” asked this question: “Would Human Extinction Be a Tragedy?”
Um, yes. Yes, it would.
The author, Todd May is a professor of philosophy at Clemson University.
Of course he is. Our kids are learning from guys like him.
No wonder they are contemplating not having children to save the planet.
May wrote, “It may well be, then, that the extinction of humanity would make the world better off and yet would be a tragedy. I don’t want to say this for sure, since the issue is quite complex. But
It certainly seems a live possibility and that by itself disturbs me.”
So, save the planet and animals, and let the humans die.
No, it’s not a complex question.
Humanity matters more than plants and animals.
When you have your conversation with your child about the “birds and the bees,” tell them to be careful, because reproducing a baby may end the planet.
