Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


Word has it that we are almost to the  SEVEN BILLION mark for
human population worldwide.

Still, we don't discuss the unsustainability of existing peoples.

We haven't gotten clean water available to everyone in every region.

Not enough food for those we already have-- and no, it isn't restricted
to those troublesome "Third World" countries, either.

Poverty rates soar.
Unemployment rates rise.
Hunger and malnutrition and under-nourished people's numbers
    growing by leaps and bounds.
Homelessness is a burgeoning epidemic.

And still....
we can't discuss sex without concerns over the 'moralistic implications.'
No discussion of the ramifications of procreation.
No discussions about protecting against spread of disease.
No talk of the realistic need to stop having children, or so many
     children, or having them when not financially able to provide for them.

We're all about the pride, the ego, the "continuation of the species"...
the "No one's gonna tell me what to do!" and the Honor Wars.
We're really not that big a deal outside our own heads. Really.

There's no threat of bloodlines going out, or the human race going
extinct. No threat from anybody but us and the planet we continue to
over-populate and destroy.

Would it really be such a bad thing to scale back on the unprotected
