You are being kind when passing judgement on the regressive nature of the conservative monkey mind which will stop at nothing to return civilization to the prehistoric Bronze Age when the troglodytes who founded their apish religion wrote in a book instead of a cave wall.
"The historical momentum of things is creating such a bewildering social milieu that the monkey mind cannot find a simple story, a simple creation myth or redemption myth to lay over the crazy contradictory patchwork of profane techno-consumerist post-McLuhanist electronic pre-apocalyptic existence." ~ Terence McKenna

Does this count as self harm as a precursor to suicide?
it does if you're a fucking idiot looking for an excuse to start a moral panic. Otherwise, no.
I wasn't being serious about the suicide thing. I was just joking based off the thread title, coupled with a derpy anecdote :O
"Whatever interest we take in the fortune of those with whom we have no acquaintance or connexion, and who are placed altogether out of the sphere of our activity, can produce only anxiety to ourselves, without any manner of advantage to them. To what purpose should we trouble ourselves about the world in the moon?"
