It’s Immoral To Have Kids In The Age Of ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

The always unhinged New Republic thinks they’re on to something

Is It Cruel to Have Kids in the Era of Climate Change?
Some argue that bringing children into a decaying world is immoral.

Decaying, baby, decaying! From a tiny increase in the global temperature that is less than most previous warm periods

In one of his early works, the nineteenth-century German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche relayed an Ancient Greek legend about King Midas pursuing the satyr Silenus, a wise companion of the god Dionysus. When Midas finally captures Silenus, he asks him what “the best thing of all for men” is. “The very best thing for you is totally unreachable,” Silenus replies: “not to have been born, not to exist, to be nothing.”

27-year-old Raphael Samuel from Mumbai offered an echo of this argument to the BBC this month. Samuel plans to sue his parents for bringing him into a world of suffering without his consent. “Why should I suffer? Why must I be stuck in traffic? Why must I work? Why must I face wars? Why must I feel pain or depression? Why should I do anything when I don’t want to? Many questions. One answer,” Samuel wrote on his Facebook page: “Someone had you for their ‘pleasure.’”

Once, such thoughts might have seemed far-fetched or even self-indulgent. Today, however, similar reasoning—known as “antinatalism—seems to be spreading as potential future parents contemplate bringing children into a world climate change is likely to devastate. “Why did you have me?” Samuel asked his parents as a child. If the bleak scenarios about the planet’s future come to fruition, will parents have a satisfying answer to such questions?

I think it would be a great idea if all Warmists refused to have children. We can do away with this whole stupid thing within 20 years.

Anyhow, all sorts of Thing Important are mentioned as the article yammers on, but forgets the reality: this contemplation is nothing new for the Cult of Climastrology, which has advocated limiting births in developing nations, which are full of those black and brown people. Oh, and this idiot

Like, this youngster with all her worldly experience, like, hopefully doesn’t have kids, like, herself. But, like, she won’t like, give up her own, you know, fossil fuels, like, usage.

    the new Paul Ehrlich.

    And just as right.

  2. Kye says:

    I think any time a leftist or global warming nut decides not to spawn they should be encouraged. In fact, for the first time in my life I’m in favor of a government program that would encourage all leftist Democrat-Communists to be sterilized.

    It is a sad thing that many of our HS graduates read/write/etc. well – at the eighth grade level.

    But it is sadder still that someone was given official power over us in DC that would fail miserably on “Are you smarter than a fifth grader?”

  4. Jl says:

    Seen earlier: “Nation breathes sigh of relief as Ocasio-Cortez comes out against having children.”

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      If only Fred Trump had decided not to have children.

      • formwiz says:

        Somebody else would have come along, but it’s the greatest blessing we have Donald Trump.

        Scourge of the Left, Conqueror of Communism, Destroyer of the American Left, God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom throne.

        You morons have been aborting yourselves out of existence for 50 years and now Occasional Cortex says, “Let’s revisit Paul Ehrlich”.

        Not even designer babies now. 20 years and no more Lefties.

        Be still, my beating heart.

    She is so right. But she doesn’t go far enough. Encouraging the masses is never the Socialist way. You have to make it mandatory. I recommend mandatory sterilization of all immigrants and high school students. Then America can be a sustainable zero-birth place and set an example for the rest of the world. Well-connected people with an approved family plan can apply for a permit to have their sterilization reversed. If you want omelets, you have to break some eggs.

    • Professor Hale says:

      This has all sorts of advantages. Planned Parenthood meets their goal of total population control while at the same time making Conservatives happy by going out of business. And birth right citizenship/anchor babies becomes a moot point since there will be near zero babies. A declining population has all sorts of cost savings, like lower health care costs. The savings in maternity care alone will cover a few million hip replacements.

  6. Marcopolo says:

    Teach how many children have you blessed this world with?
    Will you be teaching them all to be goid patriotic conservatives?
    Too many white men seem to have stopped having children in order to live a more selfish life
