Andrei Cultural Suicide

The lunatics are truly in charge of the asylum.

A report issued by the prestigious London School of Economics has concluded "Contraception is almost five times cheaper as a means of preventing climate change than conventional green technologies"

The logic is impeccable the less people there are the less impact people with have on the environment, with the obvious corollary - no people, no environmental impact.

Its bonkers of course, while the purpose and meaning of life maybe obscure, the old "why are we here" question, it is clear that we have a drive to procreate, to leave a legacy of children and grandchildren to carry on when we have gone. Put it down to Richard Dawkins' selfish gene if you will or take it from the Biblical injunction "be fruitful and multiply" but whatever view you take the only reason you, me and ridiculous pointy headed professors are here is because our ancestors procreated.

The silliest thing of all, and the most worrying if you care about Western civilization is that we are not having enough children. But nature abhors a vacuum, as they say, and the next generation is being born as we speak.

It is being born in places like Burkina Faso, places where they don't have over educated fools telling them they are destroying the planet, where they don't have much of anything actually.

And these are the people who will inherit the earth, people who do not share liberal sensibilities and certainly do not give a damn about the ultimate fate of polar bears.

For the time being their major concern is just day to day survival.

To paraphrase GK Chesterton:

Don't worry too much about the birth controllers. After a while the breeders will be the only ones left!

And the climate changers will be probably not be among us.

Turning the lights off when leaving the room is fairly conventional and cheaper than buying a condom. However, even that is now counter-green as CFL bulbs don't work that way.

And who knows what will happen to the population if you turn the lights out without leaving the room?

Zen: Leaving the lights on is effective contraception for some - what to do??!!!

Maybe we'll have to become Family Planning Spokespeople and use our personalities as contraception?
