A man has called out his parents for bringing him into this world ‘without his consent’.
Raphael Samuel, 27, said his parents created him, not for his sake, but for ‘their joy and their pleasure’. He compared having children to ‘kidnapping and slavery’.
Samuel, a self-proclaimed ‘anti-natalist’ in India, believes procreation is a ‘supreme act of evil’ and that life which has not given its consent to live should not be brought into the world.
Speaking to The Print, Raphael said:
I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure. My life has been amazing, but I don’t see why I should put another life through the rigmarole of school and finding a career, especially when they didn’t ask to exist.
Raphael, from Mumbai, runs the Facebook page Nihilanand where, he shares numerous images and he asks his followers to consider why they are alive.
One of his post reads:
Your parents had you instead of a toy or a dog. You owe them nothing. You are their entertainment.
