/pessimism/ general. discuss based pessmistic thinkers and artists.

The ironic thing about Pessimism is that its actually a great deal less nihilistic than Optimism.

Pessimism: Let's do a realistic reckoning of reality
Optimism: Lets just float everything that might contradict our position and focus in on the most insignificant minutiae

How do you call the philosophical position in which you think everything is horrible but you're actually fine and even happy about that? In a world that is burning, how do you call the suddenly ravished pyromaniac?

Its called being an edgy faggot. Recognizing the horror of existence should provoke the position that less people ought to be exposed to it.

Now you're the edgy AND brainless faggot. Why cease bringing people into this world based on some arbitrary and possible "suffering." Life is more than a dichotomy between suffering and pleasure. If your child experiences great suffering it's most likely due to your faults as a parent (in other words anti-natalists are pussy bitches coping for their inceldom period)

You don't know what edgy means. Empathy is not edgy.

Can you people stop trying to slip aspersions (adhominems at best) into the conversation on pessimism, under the poorly veiled guise of analyzing the collective psychology of pessimists?

You're a human bot. Congratulations, you've made yourself irredeemably insipid. Now stop speaking. Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

Since when is morality based on what MIGHT happen to someone as a result of your consenting on their behalf?
