I predict that this movement will have a short life,...

...just like the Shakers: The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement

Phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth's biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.

Obviously the environmentalist movement carried to its logical conclusion... Devil

anyone who chooses to do this. Alas, I cannot do this myself, for denying mankind the benefits of my presence would be too devastating a loss.

Anybody remember the National Lampoon's travelling stage

show called "Lemmings", a take off on Woodstock, with the premise that "we all owe it to Mother Earth to off ourselves". It was the first place I ever saw John Belushi and the place where he originated his Joe Cocker impression.

It came complete with the stage announcements like "Stay away from the Brown Strychnine. It's been laced with Acid"; and "The Grateful Dead will be unable to appear. They're dead, and we're grateful."
