What is /hist/ consensus on antinatalism?
Never birthed any interest from me
Requires a Dawkins tier materialistic and no soul worldview.
>>14776950Psyop to decrease native birthrates to facilitate importing third worlders.
>>14776950Awful and -even worse- stupid.
>>14776950Evolutionary dead ends
>>14776950Retarded on both ends of the intellectual chain. Benetar never has anything other than his bald assertion that the absence of pain is less real of a good than the absence of pleasure is a bad, so you can just as easily assert they are in fact mirror inverses of each other and throw the entire framework into the garbage. It also deals entirely qualitatively, with no room for "this is mostly good and overall enjoyable but there are a few things I don't like that prevent it from being perfectly enjoyable" in his idiotic framework.Then, even if you do accept it, then why stop at antinatlism? If you're so certain that existence is a net hedonic loss and there's no way around it, the only rational and compassionate way to proceed is to extinguish all conscious life, not merely refrain from creating new consciousnesses. But of course he doesn't go there because omnicide gives him the oogies.
>>14776950gay shit from r*ddit, like veganism or atheism
Self-defeating ideology. The breeders will inevitably outnumber the antinatalists sooner or later.
Sounds really stupid just from the summary. Can't imagine reading all of it.
