Visualize Voluntary Human Extinction…Huh?

I stumbled across a link to this website at iOwnTheWorld. They are the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, and their motto is “May we live long and die out.” 

Phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth’s biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.

I guess I am dense. Why does it matter if the Earth’s biosphere returns to good health (assuming it is “sick”) if we die out? Oh, is it just for the animals? What if those little frogs in Texas, without us here to hinder them, breed uncontrollably and get power hungry? What if they kick all the salamanders and lizards and snakes out, and then they go after the armadillos and then what? Do you suppose there might be selfless little froggies who go out and recruit the more noble frogs to practice safe sex? But then, maybe the salamanders might seize the opportunity to climb to the top of the biospheric pyramid, and here we go again. So anyhow, here’s a little of their philosophy and ideas. There is lots more on the actual site. Follow the link for a trip down the rabbit hole.

VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It’s a movement advanced by people who care about life on planet Earth. We’re not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters.

We don’t carry on about how the human race has shown itself to be a greedy, amoral parasite on the once-healthy face of this planet. That type of negativity offers no solution to the inexorable horrors which human activity is causing.

Rather, The Movement presents an encouraging alternative to the callous exploitation and wholesale destruction of Earth’s ecology.

As VHEMT Volunteers know, the hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species: Homo sapiens… us.

Each time another one of us decides to not add another one of us to the burgeoning billions already squatting on this ravaged planet, another ray of hope shines through the gloom.

When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth’s biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Nature’s “experiments” have done throughout the eons.

It’s going to take all of us going.

Allow me to leave you with their prestigious awards. I am going to go out on a limb and say I don’t see us Treepers getting any of these awards.

Prestigious Awards for Reproductive Responsibility

This handsome trophy is awarded to those outstanding citizens who acknowledge 6+ billion humans on Earth is more than enough, and who put their money where their gonads are. 

The Silver Snip Award

Anyone, including biological parents, who has chosen permanent, surgical contraception (vasectomy, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, etc.), may download this animated gif. Please include a link to this page when proudly displaying the Silver Snip Award on your website.

The Golden Snip Award

This award is reserved exclusively for those brave pioneers who have never never reproduced, and never will. The Golden Snip Award honors childfree individuals who have chosen permanent, surgical contraception (vasectomy, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, etc.), in order to not create more Homo sapiens. Adoptive parents who have never conceived, and who do not support the fertility industry (surrogate mothers, egg donors, IVF, sperm banks) may also download this animated gif.

    And I’m sure none of these fanatics are planning on living off the grid, surviving the cleansing and having the whole planet to themselves.

    Human Life is not part of Nature? We are not, in fact, what Nature has been working toward all this time? This is not the goal of “natual selection?” Moreover, this success is a bad thing?

    There was this other guy, once, hated the mere idea of humanity. Thought they shouldn’t exist, that things were perfect without them. As I recall, he got his ass kicked out of heaven . . . looks like he’s still arguing the same old point. That guy needs to learn to move on. . .


  3. If “dying out” is their true goal…. Why have they NOT self terminated?


  4. texan59 says:

    Why do the lizards and frogs get to reproduce and we don’t. With no opposing thumbs they’re gonna be about as good at driving as a cat. All they can do is text and use an iPad.


  5. Zauber says:

    OOooooo-kay, I have an idea of which group we can run the beta test on. Ever wonder if maybe we’ve graduated just a few too many fruit loops from the liberal arts colleges?


  6. Solaratov says:

    So-o-o, I guess a Platinum Snip Award would go to those who have never reproduced (thank God) and have voluntarily self-terminated (leaving more room for more worthy creatures)? It would, of course, be a posthumous award. 👿


  7. Coyote says:

    The only thing extinct is common sense.
    The only thing I think I just witnessed is the last strings of sanity getting snipped.

    Why am I having a day that is totally devoid of having/reading/watching/witnessing anything that makes sense to me?

    I’m going to go fly a kite with a sock puppet hang-gliding on it over city hall. Maybe I can get myself institutionalized. But considering my present luck, city hall would hire me on the spot.


  8. The Ten Commandments: God’s Version vs. the New World Order’s Version

    The first guideline/principle/commandment:


    Current world population is estimated at over 6,990,000,000.

    That would mean exterminating over 6,490,000,000 people (exterminating over 92.8% of the world population) in order to get down to 500,000,000.

      Before clicking, lemmee guess– Georgia Guidestones, right? Yeah, those things are creepy. Would like to see them go *poof* . . . okay, now clicking through!


      • A very good (and educated) guess!

        It is creepy thinking that someone or some group of people believe in those things enough to pay the money to build that “monument”.

        Someone or some group of people truly believe that over 90% of the world’s population needs to die.

        Do those who speak of “sustainability” think that we must “MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE”?!?


        • zmalfoy says:

          Some people claim that they were erected to serve as a guide after some coming “cataclysm” which would the the wiping out, after which, “cap on breeding!”

          Ugh. But I do suspect that most of the “sustainability” crowd is under the mental/emotional thumb of those (or folks associated with those) who raised the stones. Of course, that’s all part of a gigantic Tin-foil mega-hat I’ve been constructing in the basement of my brain. . .


  9. It failed for the Shaker movement. Hell, and they made such nice furniture, too.


  10. Dear Left: I’m sure that what you say is true and is best for the planet. However, like all good theories, practices and procedures, I feel that an extended test period is first required. Oh, let’s say… about 40 years. So, please commence immediately, and I, along with a legion of scientifically-trained and qualified monitors, will take notes and gather data. So, this Friday (01/28/2012), please proceed with your self-elimination program. You’ll have my report, in triplicate (along with a snazzy, animated PowerPoint) on February 1, 2042.

  11. Shalini says:

    என்ன கொடுமை sir இது?!


      • Shalini says:

        Sorry! It is sort of like ‘What the heck is this!’ with an added hint of mockery. And it is almost always followed by a face-palm.


        • zmalfoy says:

          Oohh. . .fitting! How is it pronounced? (Am curious, so I can butcher it next time an appropriate story comes up, lol)


          • Shalini says:

            You know, it’s actually like we are being tortured by their idiocy. Kodumai’s literal translation is torture.

            En-uh Ko-do-mai (The first syllable is pronounce like ‘Go’ with a short ‘o’ but of course with K , the second is exactly like ‘do, the third like ‘why’.) E-dhu. Does that help?


            • zmalfoy says:

              Yes! Thank you! *giggles* no doubt if I ever try to pronouce it, it’ll come out all wrong. . . but you really get the meaning from the vocal inflections in the vid– you can hear the “facepalm” being expressed. . . 😆
