To me, a base core consideration in the problem
of suicide is how one relates to other human beings.
In modern times, we live in quite an unnatural
state. If human beings have existed mostly in
hunter-gatherer tribes or bands where social contact was very
close and free thinking and independence a great fear.
<br>Today, society is so huge. We interact with people we do
not know or will never see again and face no great
repercusions for being rude to them. Materialism runs rampant.
People are so rushed and do not take the time for
developing relationships. Each is on their own schedule
which decreases the chance of relating to others; not
even one's family. <br>Individualism is part of the
problem and no matter what meaning one seeks, if one
cannot relate to the social environment perhaps one is
doomed to nihilism.
