Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk say human population not nearly big enough: ‘If we had a trillion humans, we would have at any given time a thousand Mozarts’ by Steve Mollman, December 16, 2023, Yahoo! Finance
We need more humans. That’s the message from two of the world’s richest billionaires, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
While the two compete in the space business—Bezos owns Blue Origin while Musk has SpaceX—they agree on certain aspect’s of humanity’s future.Both are Space & Earth abusers and polluters!
“I think in a lot of these endeavors we’re very like-minded,” Bezos said on an episode of the Lex Fridman Podcast released this week. He added, “I don’t really know Elon very well,” but he said that he liked the idea of forming a friendship with him.
Asked what he hoped for humanity’s future in outer space hundreds or thousands of years from now, he replied:
“I would love to see, you know, a trillion humans living in the solar system. If we had a trillion humans, we would have at any given time a thousand Mozarts and a thousand Einsteins…Our solar system would be full of life and intelligence and energy.”
Ya, not like the stupidity of humans now. As if spreading into space will undo brains eaten and damaged by SARSCoV2, other pathogens, and brain rot spread by bad living habits, sloth and greed.
What companies like Blue Origin and SpaceX are doing, he said, is creating the space infrastructure upon which future generations can build greater things.
“When I started Amazon, I didn’t have to develop a payment system. It already existed. It was called the credit card,” he said. “I didn’t have to develop a transportation system to deliver the packages. It already existed. It was called the postal service and Royal Mail and Deutsche Post. And so all this heavy lifting infrastructure was already in place. And I could stand on its shoulders.”
He said that he wanted to use his “Amazon winnings” to build heavy infrastructure that will be used by the space entrepreneurs of future generations.Gaia best hurry up and punt our evil species off the face of the earth fast, pronto. Space needs to be protected from madmen Musk, Bezos et al, and their space invasions, explosions, pollution and garbage. Humans are destroying earth’s livability, if they haven’t already; billionaires are destroying the night sky with their space trash. Musk’s satellite trains and exploding rockets are the ugliest things I’ve seen.
“When you can have a really valuable space company started in a dorm room, then we know that we’ve built enough infrastructure so that ingenuity and imagination can really be unleashed,” he said. “I find that very exciting.”They call it madness.
He envisions people living in giant space stations, which have “a lot of advantages over planetary surfaces,” including the ability to spin them to create normal gravity. He said most people would want to live near Earth and go there for vacation, Dream on buddy, earth’s fast becoming too toxic and dangerous for human survival, even short vacays. “the same way you might go to Yellowstone National Park.”
He sees the Earth’s environment being preserved WTF? Does Bezos not have eyes and ears? Too rich and spoiled to see how most of earth’s billions are forced to live toxic lives? Earth’s environment is dangling by a thin thread thanks to greedy polluters like Bezos, Musk et al.by heavy manufacturing moving into space, taking advantage of resources on the moon and the asteroid belt.
As for Musk, he’s long stressed the need for humanity to become a multi-planet species, and he envisions SpaceX’s Starship rockets transporting people between Earth and Mars, where a permanent human presence will be established.The last thing space needs is soulless billionaires profit-raping in it.
“We don’t want to be one of those single planet species, we want to be a multi-planet species,” he said in 2021 after SpaceX sent astronauts into orbit on a reused rocket.
He’s also warned about an “underpopulation crisis” here on Earth. In the summer of 2022, he said the declining birth rates seen in many nations presented “the biggest danger civilization faces by far.”Nope, smartest thing humans have ever done, is choose not to have kids. A trillion humans!? The raping catholic church would be happiest of all, think of the kids the priests could rape! Ten new kids a day, and never run out.
A few years earlier he had warned, “The biggest problem the world will face in 20 years is population collapse.”He can’t even make a safe vehicle. Musk needs to go back to his Tesla drawing board and fix his dangerous cars instead of spewing arrogantly about humans wisely choosing not to breed.
This weekend, he sounded similar warnings while attending a political festival in Italy staged by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
“It’s important to have children and create the new generation,” he told attendees. “As simple as it sounds, if people do not have children there is no new generation.”Good. That’s what future humans and other species need – far less polluters and destroyers (us).
Earlier this year, after China released figures showing a plummeting birth rate, Musk tweeted: “Population collapse due to low birth rates is a much bigger risk to civilization than global warming…mark these words.”I have marked your words Mr. Polluter Extraordinaire.

We likely already have more than a ‘thousands Mozarts,’ but many lack the time or financial resources to express their talent, often working for minimum wage at disgusting companies like Amazon.

I expect human life, and most other life on earth, will be wiped out or severely crippled in a few years, causing unimaginable suffering to our species and others, thanks to human pollution, over population, stupidity and greed. I see no billionaires working to reduce their abuses to earth and the atmosphere, or working to mitigate their deadly pollution on earth or in space – they keep making more of it.
