Note: We’re moving along steadily in our end-of-year funding campaign, But I want to encourage in you all a greater sense of urgency. As David Warren wittily demonstrates in today’s column, “progressive modernity” is akin to an extinction event. And that calls for every ounce of effort we – and you – can make to slow it down, divert it, stop it, if possible. We don’t harangue here for donations, but if you’re a reader, you’re aware of the stakes. So do something about it.  Right now.  It’s easy.  Your support will have consequences for years to come for TCT, the Church, and the world. It’s simply the case that each and every one of us has been put in this time and place by God to make a difference – Robert Royal 

The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement is officially a thing, I learn from the usual reliable media sources. Its founder, Les Knight, advocates intelligent non-breeding.

While most World. Economic Forum and environmental crusaders only want the world’s population to be reduced by seven billion or so, Mr. Knight would like to eliminate the whole amount.

Like many other progressive people, he likes to flatter the young for their intelligence and wisdom. By coincidence, they are also our largest potential breeding group. Mr. Knight’s TV presentation (on Fox this week) goes like this:

“My plan is for everyone to think before they procreate, and if people really think about it, think it all the way through, and have the wherewithal not to procreate, which is a really big problem all over the planet. . .44 percent of young people are saying ‘no I don’t think I wanna do that.’”

“Just because they’ve thought about it.” …
