• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Probably because the wealth inequality will continue to increase. People will be paid the same but inflation continue to increase making everything more expensive. Pollution and radiation will eventually lead to higher rates of cancer and other illnesses.

The United States' war on opioids and poor treatment of chronic pain is definitely contributing. My imminent CTB is because the government has made it just about impossible to get the medications I need to manage my pain. So be it. I will end careers when I go.

Sympathize with you though you can take some solace that you don't like in fucking Western Europe like I do. The 'opiod crackdown' has spread here and it was ALREADY hard to get opiods or benzos prescribes by annoying GP's in the noughties so you can imagine the impossiblity now.

Just wonder how easy is it for doctors their to prescribe benzos.

I think there is more pressure since you have to be more educated and the whole facebook individualism aspect. Also, these days people have much lower tolerance for things getting bad, at least in western countries. By that I mean that today in schools we are taught that life is meant to be good and enjoyable, but the truth is that it's only been good for like 100-200 years, before that, things were shit and life was full of suffering, people died young. That's why you have so much fucked up stuff and writings from past centuries because people were really bitter at life. So, many people today simply can't take it once they realize life doesn't match the image in their head.

And just think how much better the world would be if it weren't run by total CUNTS. Humanity has it within their power to make this planet a utopia but instead, we make it a Kafkaesque hellscape.
