Billionaires tend to be very opinionated people. And they rarely agree on anything. But at a meeting last year, some of the world richest and therefore most influential people in the world came to a consensus: the world needs less people. Contraception and abortion are the means to a perfect world. Yes, whatever the problem is, it can be solved by less people in the world. It reminds me of two of the most non-conformist high-school debaters I ever knew. Every year, whatever the resolution was that the affirmative team had to accomplish through their proposal, they proposed a firing squad. And you know what? They often won. Actually I am not sure they ever lost with the proposal. Because it is true in a theoretical world (which is what high school debate is all about) that less people are easier to manage and create less things that can become problematic. The only problem is that these billionaires want to take this ridiculous idea out of the high school classroom and into the real world. And in the real world, this idea leads to the devaluing of human life. It leads to abortion and forced contraception (one of the billionaires suggested China has done well with this issue). It has in the past led to outright murder.
May I suggest if they are truly serious that people are the problem, they should start by ridding the world of themselves and their families. It is so easy to call for the death of others.
