If the raison d'être of Modern Liberalism is the safeguarding of Individual Autonomy, then how can the Modern State outlaw the most fundamental expression thereof, namely suicide, without contradicting its very premise? I really want to know this.
Sorry, this is a dismal topic, I know, and hardly a fitting one for the Feast Day of the Annunciation, the Celebration of the New Creation, but I have cabin fever something fierce, and under extreme fits of cabin fever, all one can think of is individual autonomy and how much it royally sucks.
Individual Autonomy is simply a euphemism for the demonic Liberal Project of crushing and atomizing human solidarity. And, of course, the logical consequence of this project is suicide.
