Really looking forward to Space commentary on suicide.

I dunno, there are good days and bad days for everyone, I would think. And the thought of a good day beats the thought of no days for me. I guess don’t let yourself get trapped in the moment of hopelessness. Change is inevitable, and sometimes that change will be good.

I'm happy to hear your commentary as well.

Yeah I just read that yesterday....

There is something about the modern human condition that makes it not worth living

Humans have never been wealthier or better off yet we seem to be struggling mightily

That would make for an interesting study.

Maybe it's the general move away from religion toward secularity? Maybe people need to believe in fairy tales to give them reasons to live?

What is the socioeconomic breakdown of suicide victims? Is this rise that has been noted consistent across social classes?

Is humanity really wealthier and better off? A minority, sure, but maybe that's just a comment made from a DC bubble? Do you mean there are less people struggling just to get by? And even if that's so, does it then just give people more time to ponder their existential angst?

I would venture to guess it's typically those who are better off who commit suicide
It's a Maslow's hierarchy of needs thing
as you don't even get to worry about being self-actualized if you can't even put a roof over your head or food on the table

More people are moving to the right of the poverty line, out of extreme poverty.
now hardly wealthy, but getting access to clean water and an education way more than only a century ago

Given the bad week for drummer, one wonders if this tour will come to an early completion.

damn . . . and I was waiting for his next single ("I beat women and go to jail, but in rap music, that gets you street cred") to drop, like a fist, multiple times, until you are almost blind for life.
