Logan's Run Or Soylent Green?

Try very hard to think of a way to reduce Earth’s population down to one billion “radically and intelligently”. I’ll wait…

Yeah, I didn’t do too well, either. What a crazy concept. The only problem is, there is actually at least one lunatic out there who has proposed that very thing and considering how he views Humanity, I think he’s serious. We use every means at our disposal to kill viruses that want to kill us and we lose not a moment’s sleep at their demise. Now imagine some fruitcake out there who views you and I in the same manner; we’re the virus!
Eco-Extremist Wants World
Population to Drop below 1 Billion

Sea Shepherd founder says mankind is a ‘virus’ and we need to ‘re-wild the planet.’

You heard me…Paul Watson, founder and president of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society wants you and I, or at least one of us, dead. My guess would be both, though. He considers mankind a virus, a cancer (he even referred to us as “the AIDS”) on the Earth, and we must be erradicated in large numbers.

He’s not very shy about it, either. He wrote an editorial on May 4th in which he said:

“Curing a body of cancer requires radical and invasive therapy, and therefore, curing the biosphere of the human virus will also require a radical and invasive approach.” Yikes! Keep this guy away from the nukes, okay?

Just when you thought this global warming hoopla was a mere annoyance, now we have this guy on the scene and I’m willing to plunk down a few dinar and bet he has a following. Imagine a group of his followers. Imagine a horde of them. Now imagine a legion. Am I the crazy one? Well, let’s take a look at history.

How many science fiction stories from the past have had the most fantasic themes, and how many of those have come to fruition? The bad news is, it works with bad things as well as the good.
Men flying into outer space on rockets. Bah!
Computers right on your desk, with access to everywhere. Bah!
Robots doing daily chores. Bah!
A madman who wants to wipe out 80% of humanity. Preposterous!
Yeah, tell me about it. Don’t we have a bunch of folks up on Capitol Hill working overtime on new hate crimes legislation? Don’t you think they should take a close look at this nut? Oh yeah, and once those of us left standing begin the task of dealing with his version of the “new world”, he has a few rules to dole out.

“Who should have children? Those who are responsible and completely dedicated to the responsibility which is actually a very small percentage of humans. Being a parent should be a career. Whereas some people are engineers, musicians, or lawyers, others with the desire and the skills can be fathers and mothers. Schools can be eliminated if the professional parent is also the educator of the child.” Ay Carumba! Get the butterfly net, quick.

So what do you think, should we get ready for the reality TV show, “Logan’s Run”? I say we just run this Watson fellow off the planet.

But that’s just me.

Hey... Paul Watson is right. Humans are the virus. Look how we have decimated the earth and the beings with whom we share it... key word here is share. We don't share nicely. We kill and use and change and ruin perpetuate atrocities with no mindfulness as to the result of wanton stupidity... all in the name of the almighty buck.

You're an idiot for not knowing that and speaking badly about a man who has saved more lives than you can probably count.

When was the last time you knew of a virus creating an endangered species list or doing anything to reciprocate the generosity of the host?

And you have no idea how many lives I've saved nor how high I can count. Putz.

Watsons Prayer

Our Skipper in Sea Shepherd,
Watson be your name.
Your terrorist come,
The ships will be sunk,
in Antarctica as well as in Europe.
Give us today our money donations.
Ignore our sins,
So we can sin against others.
Lead only us into heaven,
but deliver all others to Hell.
For we are the one true voice, the power hungry and the glory seekers.
Now and forever.
Or at least until we have wiped humans from the earth.

All hail Paul.
