Population collapse is the biggest threat to civilization https://t.co/ZrHN5DsrVB— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 24, 2022
REMINDER: Elon Musk (@elonmusk) for years has been telling people that birth rates are collapsing & most of the media is lying about the population growth problem.— An0maly (@LegendaryEnergy) May 24, 2022
He believes the opposite of most billionaires who are guiding world policy.

Contrary to what many think, the richer someone is, the fewer kids they have.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 24, 2022
I am a rare exception. Most people I know have zero or one kid.
Obviously, I agree.
I’ve made the same point myself.
Did Elizabeth Bruenig just hear about the 63 million abortions?
“The grieving people of Uvalde, Texas, a town in the Hill Country about 80 miles west of San Antonio, now confront the irreplaceability of life in one of its most ghastly and unnatural incarnations: the murder of at least 19 children and two adults, with several more injured. In their mourning they will join dozens of other communities scattered throughout the country where school shootings this year alone have injured or killed people, and in their special torture—these children were elementary schoolers; they still had the faintly round faces of babies—they will join the families of the children murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School in another episode of stochastic annihilation only 10 years ago.
Yet somehow that brief report of conditions on the ground understates both the scope and the nature of the problem. The nature of the problem, as best I can tell, is that American life isn’t about what is good but is rather about nothing at all (which is, at least, broadly inoffensive and inclusive of most tastes and creeds) or about violence itself. The scope of the problem includes every facet of life that culture touches, which means most every element of daily life. .. “
If you think what happened in Uvalde is nihilistic, how does that compare to a mother killing her own child and disposing of its body?
Note: Of these these two trends, only one is a genuine threat to the future of our civilization.
