Today, the left sees humanity as a blight on an otherwise pristine natural world. It measures the value of individuals solely in terms of CO2 emissions and carbon footprints. Instead of turning human beings into energy, a la “The Matrix,” it celebrates non-existence as a way to reduce energy dependent on burning fossil fuels. This is the dead end of modern liberalism. Leftists started by hating their class, moved on to hating their nation and their race. And now, they have quite logically arrived at the point of hating their own species. The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement is most honest and consistent cohort of this misanthropic mob.
