We have seen science fiction story's about society's that commit suicide on purpose.. such as Loganís Run and I forget some star trek episode or too I think..
Of course those all take the negative view that's it wrong.. erin did clarify her argument better in another thread.. and it wasn't as negative as that blog she did..
Most people it's true that commit suicide do it for negative reasons.. and selfish reasons.. (nothing wrong with this.. but in society and as indicated in threads here.. this is considered a Negative reason) what's interesting to note is that those that do it for disease reason.. already started the suicide process by allowing/getting the disease..
I can't honestly say that a society that had open suicide practice but was in this limited reality.. (such as this) but that does remind of a episode of sliders which also showed this (season 1 I think.. maybe 2)
(rephrasing do to my junket above)
I can't honestly say that a society that had open suicide practice but was in this limited reality.. would cause less suicides?? but I think if we were in a less limited reality.. we would be far and away unbothered and okay with people disappearing from physical to non.. in this reality where death is FEARED and a bad thing we continue to see play outs of that theme consistently..
It is my understanding that we will see this theme change within our lifetime.. so keep a eye out
