The Earth is covered in a slime like layer of humanity and it is pretty obvious that we cannot continue to pollute this beautiful world, our only home in a hostile universe, until we kill our species off from sheer stupidity.
Our problem is that every time we reproduce we put ever greater strains on the environment that keeps us alive. From the food we eat to the air we breathe, it’s all produced by the environment we befoul like some sort of insane virus. And don’t get me started on what happens to the millions of tonnes of turds and piss that we, as a race, spray out of our bodies on a daily basis.
Frankly, I’ve heard of men thinking with their penises but not an entire species.
So what can we do? Well, we’re just one small country (I’m referring to the UK here) so we cannot impose a solution across the globe but we can apply a set of solutions to our own nation and, hopefully, it will be become a shining example to the rest of the world.
Solution 1: An end to all forms of child benefit or tax credits. Instead, we need a new child tax. Each woman will be entitled to a “free” first child but each and every subsequent child will be subject to a monthly tax. The tax would double with each new birth. So the first child would cost nothing. The second child would cost £50 a month. The third child would cost £100 a month etc. The tax would apply until the child’s 18th birthday and would be payable by the mother. This might seem a bit unfair, it does take two to pop out babies without a care in the world, but preserving the future of the human race isn’t about being fair. It’s about being willing to make hard choices and sticking to them. The message here is: “Ladies, keep your legs closed or face the financial consequences!”
Solution 2: End all free-at-the-point-of-delivery medical services for those over the age of 40. (Oh, that includes me if you were wondering). It’s no use just cutting down the spurting flow of babies if we also have a huge number of ageing citizens littering the landscape and sucking up resources like superannuated vacuum cleaners. We, the human race, cannot afford the luxury of vast swarms of resource hogs and neither can the ecosystem that supports us.
Solution 3: Stop any development of green spaces and agricultural land. We don’t need more homes, we need fewer homes. Stop creating structures that damage the environment. That applies to new roads, infrastructure projects and even the politically desired HS2, HS3 and HS44. Stop trying to cover every square metre of the UK with a thick layer of concrete and tarmac.
We either limit the human exploitation of the environment or the damaged environment will limit humanity. Well, it’s already happening right now. Chaotic weather conditions affecting human populations leading to famine, disease and war. Three of the Horseman, or should that be Horsepersons, of the Apocalypse. The last, Death, is already at work but he needs to be working harder if the human race is to survive into the next century.
Yes, this is provocative and designed to get people angry. I want people angry and arguing about this issue. We cannot afford to bury our heads in the sand and ignore a future that doesn’t include humanity.
