Undoomed - The Repugnant Conclusion

"This video explores and tries to explain the philosophical theory of The Repugnant Conclusion. It states that one can make a convincing argument for why a huge miserable population is better than a small happy one. It was inspired by the writings of Jonathan Spelman and Derek Parfit. I hope you find it interesting."

Well off course, isn't obvious? Miserable masses are far easier to control and manipulate, happy people have far too much time to develop individually, whilst miserable people tend to be miserable together.
A bit of an oversimplification, I know, but not far from the truth imho.

Right on, I thought Undoomed's video was amazing with his edits and sound design, which is why I shared. 8)
