  •  suicide can be perfectly rational (9+ / 0-)

    If you think life is gonna suck too much to bear going on then suicide is obviously going to be a tempting option. What's not rational about that? Of course, in Swartz's case it's a shame he did not try to fight this case but nevertheless I can perfectly understand why the prospect of decades in jail might have seemed like an overwhelmingly frightening prospect. By dismissing his act of suicide as irrational you [Rich in PA] are giving succor to the government thugs that triggered this tragedy.
