one of the things i (obsessively) think about is trying to figure out WHY would people chose to have children ? i firmly believe that all societies should introduce a test or examination that you have to take before you're allowed to have children. [and if you have kids without passing the test you should be forced to take a class in proper parenting & basic mental health, and if you fail that then your kids should be taken away] when thinking about my own parents, why couldn't they just notice how screwed up they were and realize that they shouldn't have had any children because any children they would have would necessarily live a life of pain & suffering. ppl are so retarded, they don't even think about it for 1 second i'm sure; they just go along whatever bullshit cultural-social brainwashing they swallowed unconsciously. if they had any self-awareness whatsoever, this would be their thought process: "i want to have kids [for some unknown reason], but look at all these bad habits & negative emotions I have all day long every day, so how can my children possibly have any happiness when I have no happiness whatsoever. so out of compassion its best to NOT have children or [at the very least!] try to fix myself first" how can you give to someone something you don't even have yourself?
