Someone asked elsewhere: *”do you think that the people have the right to end there own life?”* and this is my answer:
I’d want to make sure psychiatric evaluation, counseling, and other methods were attempted first before answering it.
In a perfect world, with perfectly rational people who did not suffer depression or blues or irrationality, perhaps.
But even then, how can you tell?
One can come up with perfectly logical and reasonable reasons for suicide. All the 0s and 1s check out and they can still be completely wrong.
So a right? Perhaps, but it’s not fair. I didn’t ask to be here either. I might get jealous
Also, if suicide is accepted by a society there is a danger that Doctors, family and friends could work on convincing someone that suicide was a rational answer for them, perhaps as a “greater good” for society or whatever when really they just want to get rid of them for other reasons.
“Go kill yourself” would be a useful weapon in a society like that.
The bullies would win.
