I wasn't saying you have no sympathy for suicide victims. It was supposed to be a general comment on the distaste many ppl display for it. For example, why do we say suicide victims 'committed suicide,' like 'committed murder?' We don't say she committed cancer or he killed himself w/ a stroke. Some say 70% of disease conditions are brought on by a person's mental state and/or poor stress management, yet a heart attack is given a pass even though the person was obese, smoked, etc., all disease-producing conditions that could have been avoided.i have sympathy for them (most people at least) too which i pointed out in the post you replied too.

'Obviously there has to be compassion for people in difficult situations. Am gonna be blunt tho. Motorcycling was not his reason for existence. At the time of suicide he was a lightweight who killed himself. The same goes for anyone else who kills themselves and doesnt fight it to the end (aside from 'maybe' taking one's life in order to save others, like not getting caught by interogating enemy troops). It's harsh to say considering how much pain and grief people can go through, but that's how it is'
as well as subsequent posts
What is your point? That suicide is the way forward and should be encouraged?
No, I don't recommend suicide but assisted suicide has its place. That old saying that 'suffering purifies the soul' is to me just more drivel that slights a person's choice to leave this life when they choose.
