So here’s my answer: Personal responsibility. A grassroots movement means we mean it. It means people having children in year six would feel shame and embarrassment at their unbelievable selfishness.
And yeah, if you are having children right now you are being selfish. You’re stealing. Stealing from the future. Stealing from the rest of humanity. Stealing from every living thing on the earth right now.
The current planetary die off rate—meaning the rate at which species are going extinct—is a 1000 times greater than ever before in history. Why? Because humans—one species among millions—have stolen the food, the water, the space.
And every time we bring more life into this world we’re increasing that theft exponentially.
He actually sounds like an egalitarian version of Nancy Pelosi. He wants everyone to stop having children. Speaker Pelosi just wants the poor to stop having children.
