So, some peeps from my floor and I were discussing the situation with the banker who committed suicide in the courtroom. There was quite a heated discussion, but the group could be divided into those who thought that what he did was bad-ass, and mostly religious peeps who though it was morally despicable. I would like to discuss this further, but in a different context. Is suicide justified if the costs of living (for the banker in question it would have been 16 years of butt-rape in prison) outweigh the benefits? IMO, suicide is only justified when you are out of commission (life circumstances are such that you can no longer compete in the capitalistic jungle). Thoughts?
