(LifeSiteNews) — Eccentric billionaire and tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has once again issued a warning about the risk posed by low birth rates, rejecting the assessments of global “experts” who continue to insist that there are too many people occupying the planet.
Musk, who has grabbed headlines in recent weeks for moving to take over Twitter in a bid to restore free speech principles to the highly-censored social media platform, said last week that despite assessments from experts and climate activists, it’s low birth rates, not overpopulation, that pose a risk to the future of civilization.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reinstate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021.
After contentious negotiations, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has purchased Twitter, thereby transforming the tech giant into a private company.
A self-styled "free speech absolutist," Mr. Musk's entrepreneurial spirit may define his approach to governing Twitter, where, in the marketplace of ideas, the best ideas - not those aided by censorship - will naturally prevail among the competition.
Of course, there are limits to free speech. But, for too long, Big Tech giants (including, Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook) have subjected their conservative and Christian users to all forms of censorship, desperately trying to silence our voices.
So if, as it seems, Mr. Musk will level the playing field for conservatives and Christians and allow a true exchange of ideas to occur on his platform, then we look forward to our chance to re-engage on Twitter.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reactivate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021. They are:
These accounts have been blocked by the outgoing Twitter regime for more than a year for calling a ‘transgender woman’ (Assistant Secretary of Health, 'Rachel' Levine), a man, and for tweeting an article about the same person.
The article we tweeted makes mention of the troubling paradox of having a person who denies the basic science of the human anatomy be in an authoritative position in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), but does not cast aspersions or any other such “hate speech” against Levine, according to Twitter’s "rules."
It is our fervant hope that Mr. Musk intends to allow - rather than censor - our descriptions of reality as we know them to be true in regards to human sexuality, as well as in other areas of life.
Mr. Musk evidently understands how significant freedom of speech is to the functioning of a free society as he was quoted as saying that this deal is important for "the future of civlization."
LifeSiteNews believes that being able to spread the truth in charity is absolutely vital for the future of society, as the "truth shall make you free." (Jn 8:32)
And so, in order for us to charitably spread the truth far and wide, we now seek to re-engage on Twitter's public square.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to Elon Musk, urging him to now reinstate LifeSiteNews' suspended Twitter accounts.

“Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that there are too many people,” Musk told Mathias Döpfner, the CEO of German publishing company Axel Springer last week.
“This is not true,” the 50-year-old Tesla and SpaceX founder said. “Earth could maintain a population many times the current level. And the birth rate has been dropping like crazy.”

Despite having maintained a stable birth rate throughout prior decades, the U.S. birthrate has fallen a staggering 20% since 2007.
China, Japan, Russia, Brazil, Bangladesh and Indonesia also report current birthrates well below the rate of replacement.

In his comments last week, Musk blasted the “ridiculous population estimates” made by the United Nations, which project the global population will reach over 10 billion by the end of the century.
According to Musk, the estimates need to be “updated because, really, they don’t make any sense.”
The prominent billionaire’s warnings about the declining birthrate aren’t new. Musk has been predicting the collapse of civilization due to shrinking population rates for years.
Last year, he called low birthrates “one of the biggest risks to civilization.”
“I can’t emphasize this enough, there are not enough people,” he told The Wall Street Journal in December.

Musk’s warnings echo similar admonitions from popular psychology professor and author Jordan Peterson, who has repeatedly argued that the overpopulation narrative is inaccurate and even contains genocidal overtones.
“I’ve thought for at least ten years that the biggest problem in 50 years will be that there’s just not enough people,” Peterson told podcaster Chris Williamson in February. “This idea that the planet has too many people on it… there’s no sentiment more implicitly genocidal than that statement.”
“So what do you mean, ‘too many people,’ exactly?” The 12 Rules for Life author continued. “And what do you mean, ‘the planet’? And what do you propose to do about that, exactly? Mass abortion, is that your answer? Or should we do something a little more dramatic?”
