    From what I've read, popular antinatalists believe that there is an asymmetry between benefit and harm, the balance leaning towards the latter.

    Therefore, it would be unethical to create life and always more harmful to come into existence than not.

    I kinda like suffering
    The good thing about certain contrarian positions like this is that they tend to confirm in us our core instincts.

    Ah. Well I wholly disagree with that.

    Well email Prof. Benatar yourself and tell him why you think he's wrong.

    No joke, he'd probably answer you.

    Wyote, he's an academic philosopher in an obscure South African university. He probably gets really lonely awaiting the occasional visit from Trevor Noah.

    I like Trevor, but I don't see how this is related to me giving a shit about a random academic philosopher

    They're both from South Africa. I just wanted to utilize my Ni through bad humor.

    Let's get back to work!

    David Benatar has been in two popular discussions about his ideas with Sam Harris and with Jordan B. Peterson.

    Here's an interview of his on a call-in show as well.

    In my opinion, David Benatar made the best points for his philosophy throughout both discussions.

    Nah. Still not into pessimism. Though it does have its merits.

    It's not that part for me, it's utilitarian stuff.

    It is on a whole, better to carry forward non negative ideologies

    Life-affirming ideologies are perhaps more functional for a species like our own.

    I can 100% guarantee that should some tragedy befall Prof. Benetar, you're definitely going to get Justine Sacco'ed over this comment.

    Yeah I googled them after seeing their name and I remember that.

    The internet is dumb now.
