Unfortunately, humanity's track record of plausibly decreasing net suffering so far is unlikely to continue into the far future. Students will find the population for each region across several decades, from 1970-2010. Other people are for personal reasons antinatalists if they don't consider having children to be wrong.
But we will never feel regret for the sake of the good of a man whose existence was conditional on our decision, that we did not create him — a man will not be deprived of happiness, because he will never exist, and the absence of happiness will not be bad, because there will be no one who will be deprived of this good.

In fact, it was a mostly visceral reaction in the face of a feeling of utter futility, a reaction that I think most of us can empathize with. Population pyramids are used to illustrate the differences in age and gender across the populations of different countries. Fear and anger are tied directly into the survival mechanisms, our fight-or-flight responses. When faced with imminent doom in the guise of disease or environmental hardships we run for help from friends and neighbors, from the government, and as a last resort from the skies themselves God knows I'm good! Soon there after in 1975, Deng Xiaoping the new Chinese leader had introduced the one child policy.

Also there is a tax reduction according to the number of children in the household. Cabrera also argues that procreation is a violation of because we lack a human's consent when we act on this human's behalf through procreation, and that a , having reliable information about the human situation and the ability to speak about its possible coming into existence, might not want to be born and experience the harms associated with existence this is a reference to a proposed by , who claims that birth would be undoubtedly chosen.

Japan is experiencing a decline in population, while many of the developing countries such as India grow at a rapid rate. Why not take our deaths into our own collective hands, by enacting new traditions that support a cooler approach to an otherwise explosively emotional subject? We tell ourselves in a sort of subtextual way that as long as the species survives, so do we. Antinatalism is a philosophy that holds the premise that pain and suffering are bad and that pleasure, while good, is not needed by those who don't exist.
