The antihuman agenda festering just under the surface of the environmental movement is getting less subtle. A University of Texas professor named Eric Pianka is actually preaching to his students that the world would be better off with 90% of the human population dead.
Pianka smiles and jokes as he cheerfully hopes that disease will rid the planet of 5.8 billion lives. According to Pianka, "The biggest enemy we face is anthropocentrism" — that is, the weird notion humans have that humans are important. But if all goes well (from Pianka's point of view), an airborne strain of the Ebola virus will evolve, and cut us down to size.
University educrats have tacitly endorsed Pianka's views by spewing the same "diversity" ink cloud they emitted in defense of Ward Churchill:
Robert K. Jansen, chair of the section of integrated biology under which Pianka is classified, said his understanding of the doomsday material left no cause for concern.
"It's important for students to get all opinions, and they have to do that on a daily basis," he said. To hold a classroom's attention, Jansen says educators must often "speak their mind" in a fashion bold enough to garner a bit of shock.
Suggesting the mere possibility that there could be a gender difference in math aptitude is unacceptable in academia; calling for the near extinction of the human race is not.
This could be because enlightened folk know that human life has no particular value. To quote PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, "A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy." Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton, would certainly agree. Progressives are so morally and intellectually depraved that they literally cannot see the value of human life.
It should surprise no one that Pianka has convinced many students to agree that the death of 90% of the human race would be desirable. Kudos to this sociopath for plainly stating what liberals really seem to want when they insist on believing that human civilization is destroying the planet. More kudos to him for boiling down leftist ideology to its purest essence: hatred of the human race.
