To appreciate the value of the legalisation of assisted suicide you need one of two things. The first is a heart. But in the absence of a heart then you need to first know unbearable suffering, despair and hopelessness. You need to know why suicide is good. You need to know that it is uniquely effective. You need to be taught not with words but with hell. Then you need to know the other essential part of hell apart from being suicidal. You need to know what it’s like to be a slave to the cruelty and mercilessness of the heartless. First you need to know pain so terrible that you’d give up the rest of your life to end it now. Then you need to be forced to endure unbearable suffering. Because then you’d know that there’s only one person who can force you to endure unbearable suffering. You. This is liberty and death and this is what makes hell on Earth impossible to create let alone keep on going as long as I’ve been in hell after hell. Or you could just have a heart but that’s impossible for the monsters who call themselves the human race.
