The Aim of Natal Enlightenment: Subjectivization of Objective Complicity

[Excerpt from my ANTINATALISMUS, translated into English by Dr Alexander Reynolds]

Without knowing what they are doing, and partly even with the best intentions, human beings who persist in their pro-natal decisions make themselves complicit in laying the basis of future calamity. And even when they do know, at bottom, what they are doing they succeed in blocking this insight out – at least temporarily. We speak, therefore, of an objective complicity of all parents. Natal enlightenment consists, in the last analysis, in a subjectivization of this objective complicity.
