“The first subcategory of suicide is of the more immediate sort; intentionally carried out by the conscious mind and focused on the cessation of pain. The second subcategory is of a more discrete and drawn-out sort; characterized by the misguided search for absolution, brought on by an unconscious sense of self-loathing, and silently executed just outside the victim’s periphery.
The real difficulty in saving humanity is not in ascertaining a diagnosis. Without question, our situation is of the second sort. The real difficulty is in discovering a reason for convincing each other that we deserve salvation.”
