Towards Reducing Suicides

I seriously hope all suicides stop happening. Psychiatric coercion, force, and confinement should be outlawed though. We should only utilize persuasion, reason, and kindness to stop adults from engaging in suicide. It will be good if we can reduce suicides to zero in this way. The implicit threat of psychiatric coercion actually has a chilling effect on free speech and motivates many adults to lie about feelings related to suicide. Adults should be able to have open and honest conversations about suicide in private without the threat of psychiatric coercion and confinement. Suicide should be respected as a civil and human right for all adults when it is done in private. Read the book Suicide Prohibition by psychiatrist Thomas Szasz if you want to learn more.
