The following books should be required reading in all schools all around the world:
*Better Never to Have Been: The Harm of Coming into Existence (David Benatar)
*Conspiracy Against the Human Race: A Contrivance of Horror (Thomas Ligotti)
*The Trouble with Being Born (Emil Cioran)
*Confessions of an Antinatalist (Jim Crawford)
This is a short list, but I believe if, after reading all of these books, you’re still a pronatalist and/or a Pollyanna, you’re a fucking idiot. That’s all there is to it.
There is no such thing as joy. There’s no such thing as love. There’s no such thing as happiness, pleasure, heaven, whatever. None of that crap actually exists.
What does actually exist is reality and all the unpleasantness of it. The only things that truly exist are pain, suffering, illness, and misery. To say otherwise is to be completely and totally delusional, yet we’re somehow genetically programmed to continue the cycle of badness and suffering, and what the fuck for?
There is no good in life. There are only differing degrees of bad, so why would you subject new individuals to the badness that is life? To make you feel less bad about your life (by somehow filling a so-called “need”)? What a fucking joke.
