Antinatalist music album

This article on ecorazzi talks about an artist called Zola Jesus who made an antinatalist album.

She adheres to a philosophy championed by Norwegian metaphysician Peter Wessel Zapffe. Antinatalism roughly translates to believing in a system against birth, and supported by such groups as the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.

“He’s said a lot of things about how humanity just feels so uncomfortable with being alive — our consciousness is too advanced for us to be able to live. Basically, we’re over-evolved animals,” Danilova said in regards to Zapffe. “Our ability to think about greater concepts isn’t necessarily helping our existence, and it’s creating more anxiety.”

    That’s a rather conspicuous editorial note posted right at the beginning of the piece isn’t it? It’s unfortunate the article “does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi.” I wonder what that was all about?

      Pretty obvious, I think. They don’t want to be associated with antinatalism in any way, shape or form. Who would?

        …forgot my “/sarcasm” tag at the end there. :)
