Better by no means to Have Been argues for a couple of comparable, hugely provocative, perspectives: (1) getting into life is often a significant damage. (2) it's continually fallacious to have teenagers. (3) it really is incorrect to not abort fetuses on the past levels of gestation. (4) it might be greater if, due to there being no new humans, humanity grew to become extinct. those perspectives may perhaps sound unbelievable--but somebody who reads Benatar can be obliged to take them seriously.
