Seeing as the first amendment only applies to the U.S. I'm going to ignore that part.

In cases of suicide, it is deemed that one isn't of sane mind. Thus they cannot effectively consent to anything.
That's why people can be institutionalized against their will. Until they are stable and released. This would apply to Sati, mass and/or cult suicides. The wife/cult members would be considered unstable, unable to fully understand the situation and unable to consent to the ritual.

Aiding in suicide could get you charged with manslaughter and possibly murder.
Also, you may get charged with improper disposal of human remains. Or other charges for the burning of bodies not ordered by a coroner and then proceeded by funeral director.

I'm not a legal expert. So I don't know the full extent of laws and charges related to assisting in nonphysician assisted suicides.


I know how to the laws towards suicide work. I'm arguing that they're wrong. I'm saying any law used to hinder personal freedom is fascist... unless ones freedom directly harms others

If someone kills themselves, that means they're insane? That's stupid. And it's discriminatory against the mentally ill. Insane or not, people should be able to do whatever they want without directly harming others.

And how can the government determine these people are "unstable" if religion is their motivator. The religion is unstable, but it's irrevant since any religious practice should be legal as long as it doesn't directly harm others.

Stone age shit like that has no place in the world today.


Yea... but all religion is stone age.

I don't care, because I don't support religious discrimination. And by definition, to ban self-immolation, Sati, self-mummification, or cult suicide would be discrimination against religion.

I think Sati is barbaric, which is why I woudln't do it. But wouldn't stop another person

You have an interesting definition of Fascist.


Okay, it might not fit the definition of "fascism", but I have a simple view...

Fuck any form of freedom that's not as simple as, "As long as you don't directly harm others, your actions should be legal" and "any action done to another adult with consent should be legal", then it's fascist/communist/authoritarian/totalitarian/whatever....

What those words mean in actuality are irrelevant. Either we have the freedom to decide to do whatever we want to ourselves without harming others, or we don't have freedom. And if someone gets in the way of freedom they're the enemy.

And yes.. If a cop stops a man who is trying to attempt suicide, he should not interfere, unless he needs to interogate him, or else he's violating his freedom.


By any chance do you consider yourself a libertarian? If not you should look them up. Great ideas in theory but then again so is communism.

Utopia is not as simple as a one sided philosophy.

you should just be more open minded and actually question the legal system... We're not as free as we think we are.

Sad thing is, I don't think he's deliberately trolling.
