Livre free or die
7 September 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is only natural that humans will defend themselves against injuries and death - it is instinct; the animal side of us. People die for a variety of reasons like illness, injuries, for being there, organized conflict and plain stupidity... usually, the need to die isn't there, but the risks are.

However, how can a human want to die if he is not mentally inept, ill, defective, depressed, emotionally distressed/disturbed/irate or even intoxicated to stupor and is in good physical health? Or better, why?

This episode of Law & Order brings about a conflict between the free will to die (suicide for some) and the law's justification to sentence someone to death for the most unacceptable act - killing someone else for no reason but to kill.

Does the suspect what to die because he seeks glory or martyrdom, wants to avoid a more evil situation or simply has no will to live?

Does society have a say in one's will to die if the act involves only that same person?
