    Absolutely agree.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    I think this sums the situation up quite succinctly. I've never seen it put quite so well.

    Well put. This is why I have the utmost respect for mental health professionals and the volunteers such as the Samaritans: people who are prepared to try to save the drowning, despite the risks to their own mental welfare. I think I'm seeing you in a different light here, Wolfie.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    To my earlier comments I'd simply add that I'm not sure why people automatically feel that a person contemplating the end of their life must naturally be depressed or somehow mental incompetent. To me, it seems perfectly normal to contemplate what you may or may not want to do when you've lived all the life you care to live and don't see pleasure or fulfillment in the life that remains. Why is it noble or sane to be forced or to be required to take all measures to breathe the most breaths possible by whatever means possible? I believe in self-determination and I'd like to make the decision when I've had enough.

    I wonder whether your opinion is a result of the availability of doctor assisted suicide in your national health care. I do assume for the government that a case of doctor assisted suicide would be cheaper than a treatment program for a patient esp. given that it would have to be more thorough than an regular outpatient for just a regular case of Major Depression. The fact of the matter is that someone who is suicidal needs help dealing with their mental illness and strategies to avoid committing suicide they do not need help to commit suicide in a clinical setting.

    Would you hold the same opinion if the person concerned is 25 rather than 85?
