But in this rare case, you have two people who are not significantly in agreement who honestly engage in critically examining eachother's and their own philosophical frameworks.
I thought about posting this, but I didn't get a lot out of it to be honest.
I thought the second half—in which they move away from trying to separate anti-natalism from pro-mortalism—was interesting. The first half is two people whose mental frameworks just don't seem to be intersecting. But the second half had much more interplay.
