Blimey

Then there was the allegation last week by the Insider journalist Julia Black that Musk, along with other billionaires, appear to be engaged in their own personal eugenics programme via a movement called “pronatalism”. Black writes that pronatalism – an ideology centred on having children to reverse falling birthrates in European countries, and prevent a predicted population collapse – is “taking hold in wealthy tech and venture-capitalist circles”, with the aid of hi-tech genetic screening.

Bit of a misunderstanding of human nature there, isn’t there?

Men gain access to mating opportunities by gaining social position.

Shocker.

  1. engaged in their own personal eugenics programme

    As are women who specify a minimum height of 6ft in their online dating profile.

  2. Do these people really think that they are intellectually above and exempt from normal human instinct? What does their ideal world look like for the rest of us? And what if we, in our billions, don’t like it?

    ‘Spose it’ll be good for cats who like to be indoors and eat vegetables, though.

  3. Noel C: I’d assumed that those specifications were actually an allusion for the length of something else, not height…

  4. Rhoda, their (Klaus, George, Bill, Saint David of the BBC) ideal world has fewer of us proles in it. Six and a half billion fewer or thereabouts.

    Then there was the allegation last week by the Insider journalist Julia Black that Musk, along with other billionaires, appear to be engaged in their own personal eugenics programme via a movement called “pronatalism”.

    Julia Black: Writer at Insider, where she writes “features and investigations about the people and companies shaping our society”. This intellectual heavyweight’s career includes stints at Esquire (writing about “pop culture”), Bon Appétit (“I Thought Cooking Would Make Me a Bad Feminist”) and, where else, Vox. Oh yeah, and she got sued by Dave Portnoy, the douche who runs Barstool Sports.

    A real heavyweight in the public intellectual arena by anyone’s standards.

    Musk should have just converted to Islam and taken four wives. Nobody would dare whisper a word against him.

    Give it a bit of time. Muslims in the US are starting to openly rebel against the sexualization of their children by the leftist educational establishment. Expect to see Muslims taken off their pedestal by The Woke sooner rather than later.

  8. Conflating Elon Musk with Bankman-Fried is somewhat odd IMO, but obviously helps The Narrative.

    Also, why does the idea of White people continuing to exist upset so many leftists?

    Dunno. Maybe the Kalergi plan?

  10. TBH, I’ve never been sure if the Kalergi plan is a real thing, but something like it seems to be taking place…

    It’s stopped clock territory for me to find myself in agreement with Jonathan.

    Though I’m quite sure, on this occasion, it ain’t the Jooooooos wot done it.

  12. Well, BiFR, it’s the Chews wot do eugenics in NYC. And quite right too. A couple who are thinking of marrying can choose to be DNA-tested and if they are carrying the same (of several) items of bad news they are advised to find new lovers.

    The high frequency of genetic defects among the Ashkenazi make this a wise policy.

  13. “Black’s subjects also namecheck effective altruism, longtermism (which prioritises the distant future over the concerns of today)…”

    What the fuck is climate catastrophism if not prioritising the distant future over the concerns of today? Twats.

  14. Elon Musk has, what 10 kids? Through a variety of wives and ex-girlfriends over the years including 2nd wife Westworld actress Talulah Riley whom he married, divorced and remarried. He has enough money to pay for the kids upkeep and school fees, so why not?

    He managed to avoid impregnating Amber Turd, so that suggests there are limits to his “pronatalist” instincts.

    I thought “Pronatalism” was more of a state thing, like Communist Romania under Nicolae Ceaușescu, who banned contraceptives and abortions, leaving until children locked up in state orphanages because he wanted the population of Romania to be bigger?

  15. Tempted to edit Wikipedia on Kalgari as below in bold… don’t want a knock on the door by plod to check my thinking though.
