Les U. Knight, ed., These EXIT Times, No. 1 (January 1991). Republished by the Environment and Society Portal. Multimedia Library.

In this issue of These EXIT Times, the editors explain why the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement (VHEMT) is in need of a newsletter; how to create more awareness; and what volunteers should say when being asked about the VHEMT. 

These EXIT Times hopes to voice the concerns of all of us who have volunteered to live long and die out. Besides offering articles of interest to Volunteers, These EXIT Times lets others know that we’re not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be further from the truth. VHEMT is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters.
