Wealthy business magnante Elon Musk has suggested that there is an ideological battle of “humanists” versus “extinctionists.”
“The real fight is not between right and left, but rather between humanists and extinctionists,” Musk wrote in a post on X.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas agreed with Musk’s assertion. “Clearly true. Today’s radical Left is like Thanos, snapping his finger to eliminate half of humanity. Today’s Left embraces anti-human policies like the Green New Deal, uncontrolled crime, sterilizing children, unlimited abortion & destroying the nuclear family,” Cruz wrote.
Someone else replied to Musk’s post by writing, “Oddly, the ones wanting to eliminate others don’t want to be eliminated themselves.”
“Yeah, if someone is keen to have fewer humans on Earth, they should start with themselves !” Musk responded.
“Almost no extinctionists think of themselves this way explicitly – usually they shrouded themselves in moral superiority – but some do, like this guy who wants to genocide humanity,” Musk also tweeted, referring to Les Knight, who advocates for humanity to go extinct by voluntarily ceasing procreating.
Musk, who has many children of his own, has been an outspoken proponent of procreation.
“Having children is saving the world,” Musk tweeted last month.
“Doing my best to help the underpopulation crisis. A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far,” he wrote in a tweet last year. “Population collapse due to low birth rates is a much bigger risk to civilization than global warming,” he also tweeted last year, adding, “And I do think global warming is a major risk.”
