Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result--my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.

Man, white people are going nuts these days. Link

There are protests, crazy protests, and just crazy.

This is just crazy.

I'm just glad he left a note, explaining it was his intent to burn himself.

He was a gay. homo-sexuality is idolized and gays are workshipped here in the USA, but the fact is that, for most of the world and for virtually all of human history homo-sexuality was considered degenerate and ill behavior. His actions seem to confirm the belief of the other 99% of the world's population.

Well that's an interesting take. You're right about the historical human views of homosexuality but considering slavery was only abolished 150 years ago in the US, it's not a high standard. What's far more pertinent to your point is that the entire arc of biological history has been filled with homosexual behavior. I'm going with God and Biology over Man and his historical opinions.

can't argue with facts.

however, I will give him (massive) kudos for the method of self extermination. it's (supposedly) one of the more/most brutal ways to go.

in a twisted way, I absolutely admire his courage.

Damn and I was always somewhat joking (not really) when I said liberals are mentally insane

We have a serious mental illness problem in this country vol. 405342.

Tragic, and, preventable.

We really do. I feel the mass shootings are a major effect. The fabric of society in the US is being torn.

As far as preventable, yes, I agree they are. But, in terms of how to prevent, well, that's complicated.
