HUMANICIDE … I’m coining this term. It means the self-destructiveness leading to species suicide of the human race… HUMANICIDE.

It is what we are engaged in.

It would be good to have a term. I think the reason we don’t has to do with people not wanting to acknowledge it. So making a term for it would be a step towards shining light into this darkness (we don’t want to see).


It is like the term infanticide, but gives the connotation we want — the extinction of the species of humans… HUMANICIDE.

Ecocide is the murder of the planetary ecosystem, which includes all life on Earth. It is something we are actively engaged in, also.

Humanicide is the species extinction of ourselves. Human species suicide

    YES YES YES. my feeling exactly, that we need the word in order to see what it is we are doing to our planet and ourselves, our future descendants that is. Yes, language matters. With a word, we can RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and rage against the very word irself. it gives us something to fight against. Agreed!

    And you know, i do like your coinage of HUMANTICIDE…..i had been looking for words like speciescide or specicide, to mean the suicide of our species, but it sounds too much like us killing off other species, and that is not the meaning i want. i want to mean us killing off us! and HUMANTICIDE fits the bill exactly. it’s got HUMAN in it and the key ending CIDE, and it’s POWERFUL. let’s USE it. PRINT! go with it . l love it. well done, Master Coiner. Humanticide it is. I will add it to Urban Dictionary later this week too. as YOUR coinage, not mine,. well done, Mikel….[danny in Taiwan]

    re “It is like the term infanticide, but gives the connotation you want — the extinction of the species of humans… HUMANTICIDE.”

    I like the relation to infanticide, because everyone GETS that word. and to see a new word like HUMANticide, that
    is gonna wake people up. BRAVO! great word! let’s blog it everywhere! We need to make this word as popular
    as infanticide and genocide in future years. Social media can help. It’s a scary word for most folks but that is exactly what we want. To wake people up. Very very well done, i had made a list of 20 words, none of them work as well
    as humanticide. i am glad i found you here online. go go go.
