A good friend of mine recently said, "You can't fix things. There's nothing you can do."
I understand his hands-off approach to the social scene of the planet, man.
But let's go a little further and admit...we have tried to fix lots of things and we have fixed them. Other things, we have not.
Since we have and can fix lots of things, it is time to take on the biggest problem we have. We need to fix the birth rate. Why? Because it would be so great to have more tuna in the sea and less carbon in the sky, more animals all over the place, more stable weather conditions. Less people in the way.
And though I am sort of a pacifist, I'm really not.
My suggestion is this. (And you can delete me from your memory banks as if I never existed.):
We need to instill a population collapse.
I can't talk about sterilization, because, really, who can?
I can't talk about genital mutilation, because, you know, that wouldn't be nice.
I can't talk about any of the obvious things you would need to do to bring this about because ethically, most of the immediate methods have been agreed upon by almost everyone to be reprehensible.
So what do we do?
I don't know.
But if we just cut the population on earth in half, can you imagine how much nicer this place would be?
Maybe my friend is right. It probably can't be fixed. Fuck.
I can't stand all these people.
