You might think I’m a doom and gloom sort if you knew how interesting I find the end of civilization. But it’s actually the rebuilding and the survival that really interest me. In part the cause and results of how things ended too, like reading a really good mystery where you have to pull the facts together and form your conclusions.

Anyway, today I found a new word: Omnicide is human extinction as a result of human action.

To continue wtih the unpleasantness are genocide and suicide which also mean extinction of a particular group or race and extinction of one person. But, omnicide and suicide are about destruction from within. I think genocide is different in that way.  No other words with that same root come to my mind right now. Do you know of any?
