Seven Reasons Why You Should Read The Baby Matrix Plus Enter to Win A Kindle Fire

In the movie The Matrix, the character Morpheus offers two pills to Neo—if he takes the blue pill, he will go on with life as he has before, believing what he has always believed. If he takes the red pill, he will find out what the “matrix” really is, and many of his earlier beliefs will be shattered. When it comes to taking a hard look at a specific set of beliefs that has driven our society for generations, The Baby Matrix: Why Freeing Our Minds From Outmoded Thinking About Parenthood & Reproduction Will Create a Better World  is the red pill. It unravels these beliefs and shows us why they no longer serve us—or why they were never true in the first place. 

Here are just seven reasons to read this book:

  • shows readers the “real” influence behind having children today

  • lays out why we need to know about a set of beliefs called pronatalism, and its negative impact on today’s society

  • challenges assumptions we have made about parenthood for generations

  • presents alternative mindsets about parenthood that reflect today’s realities

  • expands readers’ minds on what reproductive responsibility can mean in today’s society

  • confronts the question, “Are we going to continue to hold onto beliefs that aren’t necessarily true … that are even to our detriment?”

  • leaves readers never thinking about parenthood in the same way!

How did we come to believe that parenthood is the “normal” path to become a mature man or woman? Want to know what’s really behind the “biological urge”?  The Baby Matrix answers these questions and much more. It awakens readers to the truths about parenthood, and why it’s time to transition to a “post-pronatal” society.

About The Baby Matrix
The Baby Matrix looks at why it is time for us to take a hard look at a set of beliefs that has influenced how we have thought about parenthood and reproduction for generations. That set of beliefs is called pronatalism. At its core is the belief that having children should be the central focus of every adult’s life. 

The book: 

  • examines the historical origins of pronatalist beliefs

  • explains why these beliefs have become so embedded such that people see them as “true”

  • scrutinizes seven major pronatalist assumptions that lead people to accept them without question

  • offers alternative belief sets that reflect realities, true reproductive freedom and responsibility in today’s society
The Baby Matrix will leave readers never thinking about parenthood in the same way. It is a must-read for anyone interested in psychology, sociology, anthropology, parenting issues, environmentalism, and social justice. It’s also required reading for anyone in the midst of the parenthood decision. But most of all, it’s for anyone, parent or not, who reveres the truth and wants the best for themselves, their families, and our world.
