“Economic (and other) development that leads to reduction in population toward an optimum level for maximization of the quality of life, i.e. environmentally benign development that reduces the birth rate.”, he explains on page 14 of his lecture notes.

“The Big Die Off has already begun" (page 17).

He calls for Global Government:

“Since this is a global effort, it requires global organization, both governmental and popular” pg 18 of notes

“he must convince me he has the courage of his convictions. How can he do that? Perhaps if he made a video calling for a huge human die off, said ‘Goodbye’, stuck a .357 Magnum into his mouth, and squeezed the trigger, maybe I would listen to him. NOT!”

Yes, but his convictions include that there should be a global government to force people to have less babies or kill themselves, or whatever. He could therefore argue his voluntary slaughter would be beside the point, as we couldn’t expect enough people to kill themselves to solve the problem (in his imagination) for who’s leftover.

With the left it *always* comes to this in the end. The “how you get there” can vary but the final goal is this, make no mistake.

Nutlos Esser —— Literally, “useless eaters,” a term used by the Nazis to refer to the mentally and physically handicapped.

The phrase “life unworthy of life” (in German: “Lebensunwertes Leben”) was a Nazi designation for the segments of populace which had no right to live and thus were to be “euthanized”.

Since we are now a pure democracy, with no restraints, I propose the following vote.

In the name of sustainable development, and for the sake of bugs and bunnies and Mother Gaia, I suggest that all liberal professors at liberal universities be euthenized.

All in favor raise your hands.

The Ayes have it!

Sorry, prof.

How about we cut Unemployment Benefits after the first 6 months, and cut Welfare/WIC entitlement programs?

Brilliant!
Let's all contact Obama for the perfect solution for the unworkable "entitlement" culture.

This business of "optimizing quality of life" is a laughably creaky premise. When one considers that the average poor person in the United States, for example, has a lifestyle, length of life, medical care, and overall wealth that would have astonished the richest Kings and Emperors in all of history, one wonders at the basis for the claim that anything at all is deteriorating as a consequence of "unsustainable" development.

There are a number of serious difficulties with the depopulation thesis. The first of these is the assumption it is possible to distribute surplus more evenly without destroying its production. This has been falsified repeatedly in history; why the idea persists is a monument to human ignorance. Secondly, that smaller populations are more efficient with respect to resource utilization. In fact, they are not, they can simply afford to be more wasteful. Thirdly, overpopulation will lead to some sort of apocalypse. It is an observable biological fact that it does so only in an artificially closed system - a petri dish, for example, not a continental-sized ecosystem. In the latter interdependent populations adjust themselves. And lastly, ignoring the dozens of other valid objections that have already been raised, the assumption that the Earth and its flora and fauna can be separated from its human component with any logical validity. The Earth is not in danger. The Earth did just fine without humans and will do just fine after we are gone. If we choose to torture ourselves because we think that we're gods, we deserve what we get out of it, and it won't be pleasant.
