    Deal. Oh wait, I know Meth will end of killing me so I won't take it...

    @Crimson, you're right.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Suicide is an honorable act like Sepukku in Japan, only the Judaic Christian religions frown on it and yet there is no direct reference in scripture that suicide is a sin, let me all direct you to this essay by Schopenhauer on suicide http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/s/scho.../chapter3.html

    there is nothing in the world to which every mail has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.

    And what is life worth without honor? The same way Kakashi's father took his own life. Read the essay first

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    *shrugs* There are so many reasons as to why it isn't selfish.

    - The person could of been mentally ill.

    - The person could be in danger of exposing government secrets (Prisoner of War)

    - The person could truly be suffering as far as life surroundings (Third World Countries)

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    No, it isn't a selfish act. Some of you are saying its selfish because the suicide causes loved ones to suffer. By that same argument, forcing a person who is deeply depressed to continue living in pain because others don't want to be hurt is selfish of those other people.

    I had a friend who took their own life, and not once have I heard anyone refer to them as selfish. In fact the person was one of the nicest and most selfless people you would have ever met. He was just suffering and was unable to overcome his issues (mental illness) through therapy or medication. It was an incredibly sad event and I wish he hadn't done it, but at the same time there's no way I could imagine how he felt at the time.

    Its easy to stand there and call these people cowards and say they're taking the easy way out, but in truth you have no clue what they're feeling at that moment and have no right to belittle them.

    I think that saying suicide is bad or good is not a decision for us to make.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Let me pose the query.

    Which of you denizens of NB have gone through a really tough tribulation or trial yet? Did you think about committing suicide when you were in dire straights, or did you have a firm grip on life?

    To answer my own question: Yes I've been through really dire straights, but I chose life over afterlife. I did think about suicide though.

I live the way I want to; that's all there is to it.
    So you are basing it on personal beliefs and not on absolute morality, then who are you to say that those who commit suicide are less moral than those who don't? and how can you define it as selfishness if you are subscribing to moral relativism?

    it's pretty stupid but thats what they were brainwashed with :/
    The same way can be said to people who subscribe to religious dogma or philosophical axioms. So who are you to judge those who are brainwashed or not? what is your measure then of what is right and what is not?

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    From POV, I don't find it a selfish act, since
    If someone were to commit suicide, what are the causes of it? Hatred, weakness, pain...? Well it doesn't matter much, since whatever the case may be, there will be someone you can count on, but it there is no one to count on, no one to be your rock, then who is going to miss you? The selfish people of society whom exploit others? No. No one will miss you, since there is no one you can count on, then who is there to miss you? And if there is someone you can count on, then what is the purpose of suicide, as there is someone that can help you out.
