Suicide the Ultimate Sadness of Life

Published on September 13, 2022

Suicide is as painful today as it ever was. Suicide is extreme psychic pain for those thinking about it or planning to do it. Suicide also leaves permanent scars on those in any relationship with the suicide victim. However, modern civilization is fine and happy with itself, no matter how many people want to cut their throats or end up on the streets homeless. The mainstream narrative must go on; nothing can get in the way of that. Though, in terms of truth, the narrative is false, the masses have, up to this point, used the narrative as an anchor to reality, which it is not.

Suicide[i] rates increased 30% between 2000–2018 and declined in 2019 and 2020. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States, with 45,979 deaths in 2020. This is about one death every 11 minutes. The number of people who think about or attempt suicide is even higher. In 2020, an estimated 12.2 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.2 million planned a suicide attempt, and 1.2 million attempted suicide.[ii] The rates of suicide deaths among soldiers in 2021 were at their highest since before World War II. There has also been a 4.5-fold increase in suicidal ingestion cases among children between the ages of 10 and 12 since 2000.

If you want to see what the mainstream says about suicide:

Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one’s own death. Mental disorders, physical disorders, and substance use disorders are risk factors. Some suicides are impulsive acts due to stress, relationship problems, or harassment and bullying. Those who have previously attempted suicide are at a higher risk for future attempts. Effective suicide prevention efforts include limiting access to methods of suicide such as firearms, drugs, and poisons, treating mental disorders and substance abuse, careful media reporting about suicide; and improving economic conditions.                                                             Wikipedia

Suicide represents supreme suffering. However, suicide is not just an individual mental illness. It reflects the insanity of civilization, meaning it is a social issue, not just a mental disorder.

Why do people attempt suicide? Psychology Today Alex Lickerman M.D. says:

In general, people try to kill themselves for six reasons:

  1. They’re depressed. This is, without question, the most common reason people die by suicide. Severe depressionis almost always accompanied by a pervasive sense of suffering and the belief that escape from it is hopeless. The pain of existence often becomes too much for severely depressed people to bear. In addition, the state of depression warps their thinking, allowing ideas like, “Everyone would all be better off without me” to make rational sense.Special Note: Though not an absolute answer, magnesium is the best medication for depression. Even though there are decades of research and it is well known that magnesium deficiencies are epidemic, few doctors prescribe it for depression and not even for avoiding heart disease and stroke. The British Journal of Psychiatry published that people with a diet heavy in processed food had a 58% higher risk of depression.
  2. They’re psychotic. Malevolent inner voices often command self-destruction for unintelligible reasons.
  3. They’re impulsive. Often related to drugs and alcohol, some people become maudlin and impulsively attempt to end their own lives.
  4. They’re crying out for help and don’t know how else to get it.
  5. They have a philosophical desire to die. The decision to die by suicide for some is based on a reasoned decision, often motivated by the presence of a painful terminal illness from which little to no hope of reprieve exists. These people aren’t depressed, psychotic, maudlin, or crying out for help. They’re trying to take control of their destiny and alleviate their own suffering, which usually can only be done in death.
  6. They’ve made a mistake. This is a recent, tragic phenomenon in which, typically, young people flirtwith oxygen deprivation for the high it brings and go too far.

What about social suicide, cultural suicide, and civilization suicide?

Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo warned, “A few weeks
like this, and the 
European economy will just go into a full stop…”

The word suicide is coming up more and more when it comes to the European Union as politicians are doing everything than can to destroy their industry and the happiness and health of their citizens. Since the war with Russia, their support for a fascist country and government, Ukraine, has become more important than food and energy to keep their populations warm this winter.

Dr. Tenpenny says it best regarding COVID vaccines and health policies. “How much more dastardly does it need to be about killing people before people get this is just about killing people? A considerable percentage of the European population is going to suffer.

Brandon Smith lists some of the developments Europe will see in the near term:

  • Rolling blackouts
  • Further surges in energy prices
  • Further business shutdowns due to unaffordable operating costs
  • Further price inflation affecting general goods (including food)
  • More government price controls
  • Governments pushing the idea of “Universal Basic Income”
  • Rationing of food, fuel and other necessities
  • Severe economic decline and astronomical job losses
  • Significant numbers of people freezing to death this winter
  • Civil unrest including protests, riots and brutal police and military response

Too Many of Us Are Violent and Abusive

When we look at domestic violence, we can see what brutes we humans can be, how much suffering one can cause another, and significant reasons for depression and suicide.

Planetary Suicide

Certain groups of corporations, with government support, have created a toxic hell on our planet. It is a special kind of hell that gets more toxic each year killing more people as each year passes. Poison for money is the name of the game. We dump up to 400 million tonnes of heavy metals, toxic sludge and other waste into oceans and rivers each year. According to a new landmark report, “We are projecting that between 500,000 and one million species could face oblivion due to pollution and habitat degradation.” Much of the pollution is pharmaceutical.


Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of
making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last, but that
it was essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature
and to found that edifice on its un-avenged tears, would you consent
to be the architect on those conditions? Tell me, and tell the truth.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Hemingway’s description of poverty: “Slowly then all at once.” This statement can apply to many things, as well as suicide. Suffering builds slowly though the onset can be rapid, like in the case of rape.

Slaughterhouses of happiness and health exist in many places, in hospitals, vaccine centers, radiology departments, and chemo clinics, where people are chemically raped. Our civilization is about rape, pharmaceutical companies chemically raping people with their poisonous drugs, how companies rape the environment for profit, and so on. Rape is the annihilation of love. That is what rape is.

Unfortunately, sexual rape is a crime that is relatively easy to get away with. Rape envelops the whole world of its victims; it turns their world into a living hell, and children who have been abused sexually live a life of strange shadows. There are no words strong enough to describe the way rape victims feel. They are locked in a nightmare with little relevance to the outside world. Having had their bodies violated and their minds tortured, it is almost impossible to communicate the feelings to others who have no accurate perception of the depth of physical and psychological abuse a person can suffer through.

Suicide, though horrible beyond words, is like pulling a ripcord out of the insanities of life on our planet. Yet much of it is about social isolation, which is a consequence of the madness of modern civilization, which does not champion meaningful communication and listening.

Asking is there any hope for humanity is a good question. Not easy to answer. We like to think good of others, but too many of us are bad. One of the biggest problems is that good people do not have a clear channel to confront and deal with the bad, even in many marriages. Another problem is that bad people think they are good, which confuses good people.
