In their latest attempt to wage war against humanity, the left has resorted to attacking children (but only in first world countries) blaming them on everything ranging for “climate change” to their mere existence.
A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children.
Notwithstanding the numerous fallacious arguments about climate change and giving the proponents of man-made climate change the benefit of the doubt, one can’t help but notice the hypocritical nature of the statement. If the left were to take themselves seriously, then they would combat overpopulation in areas where that is an actual problem, i.e India, China, Africa, and the Third World in general. Instead, they wage war against future children in the developed world which already suffers from a negative population growth. While throwing in statements such as: “One American child generates as much CO2 as 106 Haitian kids.”, they see no problem with those poor kids immigrating to the US (or Europe) where they will no doubt generate roughly as much CO2 as the average citizen. As such, it is not OK for people in the Western World to have children, but it is highly praised when people from developing countries move in and replace them. As such it has nothing to do with reducing the carbon footprint, but a lot to do with reducing the native populations, which must be an integral part of every leftists nocturnal emissions.
Also, if the Social Justice Warriors and fake environmentalists were to care about the environment and “global warming”, then one ought to imagine they would fight against mass consumerism and get rid of their new iPhones and other high-tech fidgets. (A hint: that will never happen) Neither do they show any interest in bringing up the pollution issues in the developing world, as well as China (albeit China is investing a lot into renewable technologies and the situation there will likely improve)
The author then goes on to compare children to murderers:
Consider a different case: If I release a murderer from prison, knowing full well that he intends to kill innocent people, then I bear some responsibility for those deaths — even though the killer is also fully responsible. My having released him doesn’t make him less responsible (he did it!). But his doing it doesn’t eliminate my responsibility either.
Obviously lacking any morality, the author also believes that values such as “don’t harm others,” or “don’t steal and cheat” are outdated in this New Brave World.
Humanity grew up in relatively small groups; Rules like “don’t harm others,” or “don’t steal and cheat” are easy to make sense of in a world of largely individual interactions. That is not our world any longer, though, and our moral sense is evolving to reflect that difference. Moral decisions are no longer about math; Being a part of the solution matters.
To put it short: The left (in all its forms) wants native populations have as few children as possible, while importing millions from other parts of the world to ultimately replace them. While this is stupid, evil, and borders on genocide, it is at least presented in a clear and uniform way, for all reasonable people with some common sense left to see.
