The evil that occurred can't be undone by a future and better humanity.
What's more: why should we accept that this future universal harmony between men will justify “natural” suffering, the types of suffering that aren't caused by human action, like accidents, diseases and natural disasters?
#pessimism #antinatalism
It's not enough to say that the natural world is the way it is and expect this statement to solve our misery. Accepting a natural fact isn't a neutral attitude, but a disguised form of approval.
#pessimism #antinatalism
We judge everything, even mathematical formulas, why the hell wouldn't we judge the natural world's mechanism of death and suffering?
#pessimism #antinatalism
The fact that we are inserted in the natural world and we can't escape life in order to judge it from the outside can't stop us from looking at existence in horror, it can't stop us from rejecting our program.
#pessimism #antinatalism
Even though optimists might deny it, this supposedly neutral acceptance of life is an enthusiastic approval. And if some approve, others have every right to disapprove.
#pessimism #antinatalism
When we look at our reflection in the mirror we should have in mind that, even if we don't participate in the horror directly, we are part of a chain of events that is intrinsically horrible, whether we want it or not.
#pessimism #antinatalism
We might not be Jairinhos nor Henrys (a couple of months ago, Jairinho, a rich Brazilian politician, beat to death Henry, his 4-year-old stepson), but we are part of the same suffering factory that produces beings like them.
#pessimism #antinatalism
And this suffering factory also produces an enormous amount of other horrors, either by the hands of men, nature or by chance.
