I hadn’t thought of it that way before but now I do my position on elective death remains unchanged.
“This is the greatest toy ever created. Here lies the secret to all happiness!”
If there is no happiness, if there is no peace, if there is no future or possibility of any sort of satisfaction then why not choose death? And it is the person who decides this, not some advocate, some doctor, some religious believer. And if you are such a person and you do say what they think is wrong then you demean them, you decide that this decision is wrong but others are right? Maybe you should assume 100% of the responsibility for them? No? Shut up then. And if you do, why so cruel?
If we have been given the ability to think and reason why can we not exercise that fully?
