After spending a great deal of time reading fiction, I was recently in the mood to read a non-fiction book. So, after consulting my list of 'books to be read' I remembered that I was due to read Thomas Ligotti's 'The Conspiracy against the Human Race'.
It wasn't an easy book to read, not by any means. I found his prose and his vocabulary hard to follow at times, but more importantly the content of the book was very disturbing. The book covers the philosophical ideas surrounding anti-natalism and pessimism, and it's definitely not for the faint-hearted.
That said, I actually agree with most of the topics and ideas that get discussed in this book, and after reading it I consider Ligotti to be a very intelligent, realistic character who doesn't hold back when giving his opinions about the world.
It is a very good book, and I won't be forgetting it anytime soon, so I've made a video in which I discuss its content further.
Have a watch and enjoy—while you still can!
