    Prove suicide is a product of illness…I say it’s a product of a broken society and its lies.

    What makes one want to stay here? The answer is subjective and I posit that people can’t handle being slaves and yes, you are a slave.

    This begs the question, is suicide the result of a sickness or is the sickness learning to be a happy slave? I say it’s the latter…

    Another point is the resistance to stress.
    Because many people suicide,
    Not from their own Anxiety and Depression,
    is because his lack of stress.
    When he was disliked,
    When he was scolded,
    When he was abandoned,
    When he was bullied,
    When he was cast aside,
    he was worse than a person,
    He produced Anxiety and Depression,
    so think to suicide,
    So stress resistance is very important.
