Un-reason and Non-reproduction
by

Playing off Joe’s title, here is the bizarre obverse of that strange coin:

“You think the economy is bad now — wait a few years… Wait until we’re almost completely out of oil and food and water and available land … we need to lose 4.4 billion people and we need to lose them fast.”

That bit of Malthusian gloom from Psychology Today‘s Steven Kotler got “Quote of the Day” honors at HotAir.com, and illustrates the profound misanthropy of environmentalism, which sees humans only as parasitcal consumers of resources, not as creative producers of wealth. This goes back to economist Julian Simon’s famous wager with Paul “Population Bomb” Ehrlich.

In 1989, when I was making $300 a week and living in a roach-infested $250-a-month rental with my wife and our newborn daughter, my father said, “Well, son, if you wait to have children until you can afford to have children, you’ll never have children.”

Indeed. We’ve now got six, our oldest is in college, and we still can’t afford ’em, LOL.
