Suicide as prevention

To live a comfortable, even luxurious life it is not necessary to kill anyone; but it is necessary to allow some to die whom we might have saved…

[Peter Singer, Practical Ethics]

If only morality’s demands could be so modest. Rather, to live at all … and then moreover in the realization of a biological imperative to kill!

Thus Weininger executed himself to get morally ahead of the curve.
