It is repulsive that an Iranian Muslim has a better grasp of God-given rights than a Princeton professor.
We definitely do need more humans whose minds have been damaged by drugs.
loan this guy a gun with one bullet.

“His 1975 book “Animal Liberation” is considered to be the hallmark of animal liberation movement.”
Nope, no whackjobs here.
None at all.
We each of us have the ability to reduce the population by one.
You go first.
“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’ “. Singer is a fool.
Who's with me?
Singer is an evil, evil man. I won’t say more than that.
“I do not think we need more human beings on this planet.”
Yet he refuses to take the next logical step and end his own existence... Wonder why?
The distinguished professor cannot possibly remove himself from the earth. He’s more equal, you see.
Reducing the population is our job, because we are less equal.
Through his moral deficiencies, Peter Singer defeats his own second-rate intellect.
That his intellect is second-rate is demonstrated, among other things, by the fact that his assertions based on faith are the very means by which he claims his world view is based exclusively on science.
If he really believes that there are too many humans, he should walk the walk and off himself. For some reason he’s still around making stupid pronouncements.
My stock answer to anyone who thinks people should die off is, “you first.” What makes you so special?
He is probably a member of VHEMT (Voluntary Human Extinction Movement), but, like a liberal, he wants someone else to carry his water.
Peter, if you really think that, then go stick your head in the mouth of a saltwater crocodile.
Just another uninteresting, predictable as clockwork leftist. This is why I like guys like Hayek and Sowell. Their ideas are so more novel, so much more full of pleasant surprises and unexpected angles. I wonder if leftwingers even realize how dull their stupid philosophy is.
Given his viscoelastic logic, his views on morality and how he devalues human life, what logical protest does he have if I put a gun to his head to end his life?
Put your money where your mouth is Peter.
Oh, he just wants other people to die.
Let’s call him “Tricky Pete”. He’s so clever.
If you think about it, planet Earth “needs” no lifeforms on it at all. It could be an utterly lifeless rock in space.
I think the professor’s problem is that he uses religious axioms, that is, that humans are in some way “special”, separate and distinct from animals; and that humans can do “good” or “bad”, mostly “bad”.
But from that jumping off place, he tries to wax in pseudo-science. That is, the assumption that humans are “unnatural”, that they are like an invasive species. But he neglects the scientific principles of natural selection, that if humans are “bad” or “wrong”, nature would have long ago eliminated them as a species.
So the truth is that he sees the “badness” or “wrongness” in himself. That he, as an individual, is out of place in the natural world. That he is a failure so should be eliminated by natural selection.
Yet he wants to extrapolate this to everyone else.
This shows the twisted neuroses of such people. They feel pain and self hatred, the inferiority and artificiality of themselves. They feel their lives are meaningless, and as persons they are worthless.
And they have this weird notion that if they could just hurt other people, or tear them down in some way, it would somehow lessen their own pain and feelings of despair.
Well, Mr. Singer, since there is, in your view, no authoritative source for an inate right to life (and all the other rights that flow from that first basic right) and you think there are already more than enough humans on the planet, why don’t you do the environment a favor and leave permanently...and take as many of your supporters as you can with you when you do go. Go live with...oh, say ... the Rayleans. They’ll probably make room for you in that spaceship hiding behind Hailey’s Comet.
Oh, and don’t come back.
Ol’ Pete will surely be around since he is hardly human.
