Confessions of a Heretic

To the Church of Euthanasia:

Are you really serious? Kill ourselves and our children and each other in order to reduce the population? So that WHO can remain to enjoy the Earth, the only life given to us? Perhaps I am selfish, but I do not want to die until I really HAVE to. I kind of enjoy being alive, you know? If I am correct, then if I kill myself, then I will be dead, forever. I think your approach to the overpopulation problem is sick and evil. Did you ever think that maybe slowing down the rate at which we multiply might help? This is, statistically speaking, happening in North America right now. Due to the evils of Economy, most people can't afford to have more than one or two children. Fifty years ago, their parents were having four children. Fifty years before that, eight to ten children. These days most people don't even wish to reproduce. Nothing wrong with that. Perhaps it would be a good idea to force people to sterilize themselves after they have their second child. 2 people have 2 children, later on, the net result is Zero Growth. This might even work or something, and it is much less grim than what you propose.

Where in the world is the highest population growth rate? Try the very areas of the planet where people are starving to death and fighting over who rules plot X in area Y, and I'd say you'd be right on the money. These people have no food, live in the worst possible conditions imaginable, and here they are irresponsibly reproducing like rabbits. What the hell can we do about THEM? Not a damn thing.

Suppose I actually take you seriously and believe you really do believe in suicide and the rest. Then, by extension, I would assume that all those members of your Church believe in it also. Okay, here's the part I don't get: you believe in suicide as the solution, yet you're all still alive. The way I see it, if you were REALLY serious, you would pass on word of your grand solution, then promptly kill yourself. But you're still here, so you're hypocritical, just like all the people you say you're against. See you in Hell. Oops, I forgot, there IS no afterlife. Seriously. Why would someone such as myself who believes that this is the only life I get want to do myself in? The illogic is astounding. Bye.

Dear Sodhead,

Yes, we are serious. Americans have been insulated from the tremendous suffering their world-view has caused. In the very near future, Americans will be getting a taste of their own medicine, and they'll be wishing they had followed our advice. By the way, we never said anything about killing children or each other. That's homicide, not suicide.

Did you ever think that maybe slowing down the rate at which we multiply might help? This is, statistically speaking, happening in North America right now.

The Church has only one commandment, and it is: THOU SHALT NOT PROCREATE. This doesn't help us much in America, however, since "the average American consumes roughly 100 times the resources of one tribeswoman in Kenya, and about ten times as much as the average world citizen." (Harvard zoologist E.O.Wilson)

Perhaps I am selfish, but I do not want to die until I really HAVE to.

Yes, you are selfish, but at least you know it. There is hope.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to force people to sterilize themselves after they have their second child.

The Church of Euthanasia is opposed to all INVOLUNTARY methods of population reduction, including forced sterilization.

Where in the world is the highest population growth rate? Try the very areas of the planet where people are starving to death and fighting...

The reason the birth rates are so high in the so-called "third-world" is because the industrial nations, particularly the United States, have squeezed everything of value out of those countries for hundreds of years. Birth rates are directly related to life expectancy. When animals feel threatened, they breed more, in an effort to increase their chances of survival. What we can do about "THEM" is either (a) reduce the amount of resources we consume, or (b) reduce our population. The Church supports BOTH of these options. I suggest you start feeling some PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for the fact that "these people" have no food and live in the worst conditions imaginable. You could start by becoming a vegetarian, for example.

The way I see it, if you were REALLY serious, you would pass on word of your grand solution, then promptly kill yourself.

Just because I haven't done it yet doesn't mean I'm not serious! Besides, what makes you think your SELF is so important? Kill it! You'll be much better off without it! The sooner human beings start behaving like a SPECIES, the sooner we can get beyond all these drastic solutions. Maybe if enough people change their world-views, I won't NEED to kill myself!

Oops, I forgot, there IS no afterlife. Seriously. Why would someone such as myself who believes that this is the only life I get want to do myself in?

That is the root of the problem, right there. As long as you believe you are alone in the universe and that death is final, you will be part of the problem. Forget it! Let go of all that rationalist, existential crap! Fuck Plato and Aristotle and Hume and Kant and Freud and Francis Bacon! Go read the Hopi propehecies! The earth is a LIVING BEING! Get down on your knees! Pray to the Earth Mother! Pray to your dung! Thou art that! Hallelujah!
