You might find this amusing. I stumbled across the Web site for the
Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.


It's operated by Les U. Knight {great name; it sounds like a pick-up line };-}

However, I assume they're serious. If it's a joke, I guess the joke's on
me, since I believe they're serious.

VHEMT wants to end all human breeding so that the human race eventually
becomes extinct in order to save the earth. It sounds like they want to die
and all humans to die (after a long life, of course), so that the rest of
the planet can live happily ever after (without humans getting in the way).


>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.

Then, a contradiction:

>In the end, the real "enemies" are human greed . . .

Please, tell me it's a joke!

In peace & libery,
