crabsno termites: Why is it any concern of the government if anyone wants to end their life?/Jack Kevorkian - right message, wrong messenger (Ross Perot, as well).
BronyMedic: EVERYBODY PANIC: So when a politician gets a law passed, what was just fine yesterday is now wrong today? How can an adult really think this way? Legality and rightness are too often mutually exclusive. You creep me out with your state-is-always-right mindset. Dude, learn to think for yourself. Open your eyes. And you actually believe that "society" has a will? This clearly IS a mental illness situation here. But the illness is not with the guy who the farking cop shot, it's with your blind obedience to the sytem.As Thoreau said, no man is an island. You do not have the freedom to do whatever the fark you want to do whenever you want as a member of a society of fellow human beings. Personal freedoms have to be balanced, while being maintained to the utmost possible, with the needs of that society as a whole as a consideration as well. That's the price you pay for being a member of a nation, and for associating with fellow human beings.Don't like it? Go Galt. Or Vacation in...
Gyrfalcon: Is there some good reason people actually live in Arizona? Or is it just that they're trapped and somehow can't find a way to escape?
BronyMedic: Fark_Guy_Rob: But what if *I* don't *want* to be treated?In no country in the world today do you have the inalienable right to harm or kill yourself or others. But thanks to Saint Ronny, you can join a select club![upload.wikimedia.org image 170x248][upload.wikimedia.org image 217x224][upload.wikimedia.org image 174x200][scrapetv.com image 460x288][upload.wikimedia.org image 220x260][a.abcnews.com image 640x360]
jigger: Surprise! You're dead!
Fark_Guy_Rob: We'd need to start by making suicide legal.But that won't happen for all sorts of reasons (political/religious).
BronyMedic: crabsno termites: Why is it any concern of the government if anyone wants to end their life?Because someone who thinks that there's no one in the world who can solve his emotional problems is not the same as someone who's wanting to die with dignity and end the pain from a terminal disease from which there is no hope of a quality life or recovery.One is a mental illness. The other is basic dignity.
