There is a pervasive meme in society that people ought to sacrifice themselves for a noble cause. But I think that the people who are willing to die for something are the most dangerous kind of people.
Self-sacrifice is only appropriate IF and when it helps your own chances of living forever… Being a dead humanitarian is worthless, so always love YOURSELF first. Also, the idea of “leaving this world a better place for the next generation” is rooted in the ideology of self-sacrificial altruism. As a society we have been brainwashed into passively accepting our own death for the sake of others.
When people oppose indefinite life extension for reasons of “overpopulation”, they are basically trying to force us to sacrifice ourselves for what they perceive to be the “greater good” of humanity. This is pure evil. As fans of eternal life, we need to actively resist the tyranny of the majority. We need to demand our right to LIVE and not be forced into annihilation via aging. Every human should have a right to their own life above all else, and should not be expected to die in order to make room for the unborn. We need to wake people up and give them permission to unashamedly love themselves first. You have a right to be here. You have a right to live forever, so claim your future.
