Having Children is a Good/Bad Idea - Let Me Change Your Mind!
Manage episode 359073293 series 3145065
In this episode of Ideas Digest, Alice and Konrad tackle the contentious topic of antinatalism and its ethical implications. Through a game called "Give Me 10 Minutes to Change Your Mind", they explore the arguments for and against bringing children into the world in the face of existential threats such as climate change, overpopulation, and limited resources.
What is antinatalism, and how does it intersect with debates around reproductive rights and the right to die?
Can someone lead a fulfilling life without having children, and what alternative paths to fulfillment are available?
Should individuals with genetic predispositions to certain diseases refrain from having children to prevent their offspring from suffering?
What are the ethical considerations of bringing a child into a world with limited resources, and how does this intersect with debates around global justice?
Are there moral implications to having multiple children when the planet is facing so many ecological and social challenges?
Join Alice and Konrad as they challenge each other's perspectives on this highly personal and deeply debated topic, and encourage listeners to reflect on their own beliefs and values around parenthood.
