    If you were a slave master, what would be the first thing you would ban? Escape! After all, you need someone (slaves) to build pyramids and dig channels, and work the land, etc., etc.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    I've never considered or attempted suicide up til now.

    I might consider it in the future if I get Alzheimer's (which runs in my family) or if I have some incurable disease that's killing me slowly and painfully.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Ummmm....you really and honestly have no idea about this do you?

    Mental health issues are often times not things that cowardice or courage have any relationship with.

    Please don't try to broad-brush something as serious as suicide with a simple black & white statement of non-fact.

    You obviously speak from no position of authority or experience in this.

    Of course I'm not offended, Di. Your scenario description, and the one that I alluded to in my earlier posts, have little in common. You are referring to someone who is chronically and terminally ill. I am referring to people who are in the depths of clinical depression, not based on chronic illness, but born of psychological dysfunction and neurotransmitter/ brain chemistry problems. If my loved one was terminally ill, and did not want to suffer any longer, I would find it much easier to accept their suicide than that of my loved one who was young and otherwise healthy, but was having difficulty with reality perception. Either way, that choice is ultimately up to the person who commits suicide. I just speak from the standpoint of one who has been on the other end of it, and who had to deal with the carnage and pain that it causes for the survivors. That is the primary reason that, although I have been extremely depressed, I controlled the urge to end it all.

    Suicide is one of the very few things in Japanese culture I frown upon. They saw 自殺 (self + kill) as more honorable than being captured by an enemy. I see it as an immediate ticket to hell.

    So you think some "loving god" would punish a person with eternity in hell simply because they suffer from a severe mental health condition?

    That's somewhat like suggesting god would send a person to hell who gets cancer and dies from it.

    Sad.

    That's the difference in a nut shell isn't it?

    There's no defined line where one can control the urge and one can't.

    Once someone passes that line all bets are off.

    And each mind, body, soul places that line in a different spot.

    Some women can over-come being raped and go on to lead a productive life.
    Other's can't.

    Are you suggesting that since some can "get passed it" that all should be able to?
