People commit suicide everyday, each is tragic in its own right......the person who kills themselves is not inherently special they are disturbed.
Why would nay media cover the act? (Yes, I read the article)
Good grief,,I wanted to puke by the second paragraph! What sanctimonius horse puckey!
It is the core of the disturbance that must be examined. Christ, it must be acknowledged, acceded to his own death. He was murdered by the state. He died that others might live and live eternally. From a completely secular standpoint, Venner’s death is no different. He died that the culture he loved might survive.
Yeah, I didn’t get past the first paragraph:
“The mainstream American right has remained almost entirely silent about the recent suicide of the French historian, Dominique Venner. The reasons for this, I do not knowperhaps it is a squeamishness . . . or a lack of understanding . . . Perhaps it is a refusal . . .”
Why are these the only options? Maybe it was meaningless and trivial.
Sorry, but suicides occur every day. Ignoring them is not a vast right-wing conspiracy.
“Venner shot himself . . . . The image of this act ought to make us pause in awe.”
Are your freaking kidding me?
I now rest my case.
