Having children is a selfish thing, reproduction is born out ego, fear and arrogance. The fear of death and the arrogance that you can cheat death by creating a part of yourself(ego) that lives on after you.
The thing is he is not part of yourself, he is his own independent self, all people and individuals and no ego can truly disassociate with the self.
You are creating something that did not exist, something that did not ask to exist nor was asked to, and the only certainty that you can give to it is suffering and death.
Life is a self serving tyrant, who must continuisly create new slaves and decries this has it's own ultimate meaning.
Now the question is, we as living, mortal animals, have the inate desire to reproduce.
Having kids is natural, but is it evil or not?(please refrain from ecofascist or anti-natalist rethoric)

My cousin had 3 lovely children and a wife. A lot of people gathered around while he was sick and unconscious at the hospital. He died in a hospital bed alone, and I still miss him, bros.

If the world were smaller and less populated having kids would be more understandable but the problem is nightmarish. Billions of people are on earth and there is no seeming unend to this predicament we are in. At the current state of humanity I say yes having kids is evil and life itself is a problem.

In my country (Finland), the traditional school of philosophy is analytic and lots of professors seem to have a real hard-on for Wittgenstein. I'd like to study philosophy at uni, but I'm more interested in the continental branch. Stuff like existentialism, phenomenology, critical theory, structuralism... Will I get anything out of studying what seems to be mainly the analytic tradition, or will I find it to be boring detached autism?
>>
from what ive seen, any given philosophy degree contains a mix of both analytic and continental

that being said, analytic is not that boring, and i suggest reading philosphers like godel to appreciate analytic philosophy if you are coming from the continental camp

"Both ancient and modern Christianism and all that has its
root therein is the negation of everything grand, noble, generous,
heroic, and the glorification of everything feeble, atrocious,
dishonorable, dastardly. The cross is now, and ever has been, an escutcheon of shame. It represents a gallows, and a Semite slave
swinging thereon. For two thousand years it has absolutely
overturned human reason, overthrown common sense, infected the
world with madness submissiveness, degeneracy."

Was he right?

>The Indian economy was large and prosperous under the Mughal Empire.[62] During the Mughal era, the gross domestic product (GDP) of India in 1600 was estimated at about 22% of the world economy, the second largest in the world, behind only Ming China but larger than Europe. By 1700, the GDP of Mughal India had risen to 24% of the world economy, the largest in the world, larger than both Qing China and Western Europe.[63] Mughal India was the world leader in manufacturing,[64] producing about 25% of the world's industrial output up until the 18th century.[65] India's GDP growth increased under the Mughal Empire, with India's GDP having a faster growth rate during the Mughal era than in the 1,500 years prior to the Mughal era.[63] Mughal India's economy has been described as a form of proto-industrialization, like that of 18th-century Western Europe prior to the Industrial Revolution.[66]

Although generations of Spanish rulers have tried to expunge this era from the historical record, recent archeaology and scholarship now shed fresh light on the Moors who flourished in Al-Andalus for more than 700 years — from 711 A.D. until 1492. The Moorish advances in mathematics, astronomy, art, and agriculture helped propel Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance.

Alright guys, tell me why this is bullshit. Article is longer and more thorough.

There was a story on here a while ago about some Polish noble who was in a town while a bunch of (I think French) actors were in town. In it, some other Polish guy takes out his bow and kills one of the actors with it and then everyone in the crowd laughed because it was some sort of practical joke.
Afterwards, the noble left town and was staying at a house a few miles away when an investigator from the town stopped by and asked him if he was there or not. He said no and then they both laughed about how funny it was.

Does anybody know what I'm referring to? I've looked it up several times and have yet to find anything about it since I don't have any names and may be misremembering parts of it.

Right, it was a feasible option for the few constitutional monarchs of Europe who managed to keep their thrones to start an expeditionary war against Soviet Russia based on the dynastic claims of their wives, I can see their subjects and parliaments being totally cool with it. Would make a cool animu though, "4 against Moscow". Also, it's not like there were escaped Romanov pretenders all over Europe by the time the commies have executed the Imperial Family.
