Takes some incredible mental will power to kill oneself for a cause such as this. I can't even imagine taking my life in such a way.
Such a waste of a life for nothing.
One less idiot in the world.
LOL HALLELUJA...And what will be the result of this great act of protest ?
I would say : a job well done...
Obviously the guy was ill.
I remember a Vietnam vet who protested something... I don't even remember what now, by lying on a train track while a train was approaching. His legs were amputated just below the waist and the whole thing was caught on camera. It was certainly a very strange and horrible thing to watch.
A stupid waste of life, he could go and try to kill the president and suicide (that could stop the war thought.), instead of a stupid suicide just for nothing.!!!
he surely demonstrated the thermodynamics of a burning human being... other than that, nothing was accomplished.
i expect that being non-vilolent to others was part of his philosophy
Did he really think that the added effect of burning would sway the president's decision? Why not join a lobby group or something? :uhh:
I had remembered back in the Vietnam days, several others did the same thing. So his idea wasen't even unique.
One maybe thinking of S. Brian Willson, a member of Veterans for Peace -
A protester who chained himself to some railroad tracks in Europe near the border between France and Germany was killed when hit by a train.
Of course afterwards the buddhist concerened was known by his friends as crispy duc.
(Don't blame me it was Ricky Gervais)
