Fine, Iím speaking of those who have
deliberately died; those who are planning,
training to deliberately die. Yes, the rest,
are exempt from consideration, ( I said
we donít have a neutral way of distinguishing
them). How do you compare? For what,
(apart from family and friends), would you
drive a bomb laden car into a building
or a bomb laden plane into a ship?
P.S. I am going to exploit this opportunity,
(pig that I am), to speculate
that much of the difference associates
with whether one truly, (despite bows
and words), believes in an afterlife,
and/or believes there are things more important
Apart from family and friends, of course...
As you may or may not know,
the Nazis used to perform experiments
on pain tolerance versus social values.
In one, that I read of, they connected
a mother and daughter in such a way
that they could inflict excruciating pain
on the other rather than experience it themselves.
Guess what they found out.
