The question I find truly interesting is whether the emotional reaction against antinatalism is necessarily so strong that reasoned, philosophical analysis becomes impossible. Am I simply forced to hold a positive view of life, could I be blind to my own suffering by design? Then again I don't see how there is any objective way to answer this question.
However I'm left with the lingering feeling that since I'm much better off believing that living is good, that there are many wonderful things in the world, and that belief itself will make me feel so much better, I'm left unable to make rational evaluations on natalism vs antinatalism.


Fair point by the mod Ironclad here too. I feel like it's important to stay away from making things too personal and keep the discussion general.
