Q: What is the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement?VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It’s a movement advanced by people who care about life on planet Earth. We’re not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters.
When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth’s biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Nature’s “experiments” have done throughout the eons.
It’s going to take all of us going. More.
We are not quite sure this isn’t a parody. But then, we are told “evolution” bred a sense of reality out of us.
The Vehements seem now to be dabbling in American politics:
The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement Is Both Anti-Republican and Anti-Death
By supporting reproductive freedom and gender equality, Bernie and Hillary are preventing destruction by overpopulation.
First, we want to eliminate unwanted and unintended pregnancies, and then we want to encourage people not to want that in the first place. There are many other ways of spending one’s lifetime.
One’s … what?
Actually, it is quite possible these people are serious.
