Of course, Liberals would be the ones to determine who would be eliminated.

Notice how none of these liberals choose to lead by example and off themselves. After all, Ted, if humans are the scourge of the planet as you insist, shouldn't you do the honorable thing and eat a bullet?

Amen. Just like the Al Qaeda leaders. They send their soldiers out as murder-suicide-bombers, while they sit for years in a plush compound in Pakistan. Gutless cowards.

Of course not. They're advocating survival of the fittest; and defining the selection criteria to ensure they're in the fittest population. Which is really Darwin and evolution in action at the civic/social level. Frankly, who wouldn't do it that way?
Unlike former National Park Service research biologist David Graber, I don't believe a wild planet has any value in and of itself. Without human happiness, the question of whether the planet is wild and healthy is completely irrelevant. What these eco-freaks don't understand is that humans ARE a part of nature. The only regulation we should do to ourselves is to ensure the maximum number of us have the opportunity to create healthy, self-fulfilled lives and perpetuate ourselves.
