"The subtle violence of what society calls normality is disturbing enough and so is what is expected of people to conform in such an environment. Enough to drive someone with depression, to suicide, because they see it as the only means of relief and peace out of an unpeaceful world that currently denies most people their humanity."

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

If learning to drive were like learning to meditate, there’d be a hundred driver’s licenses in the entire country. What other skill does not improve with even years of practice? Maybe because driving is a life or death situation we actually take it seriously. So I’m going to start meditating sitting on top of a ladder wearing a noose, and if I make a mistake, that’s that, just like real life.

No one cares one whit how depressed you are until after you kill yourself. Only then does it become a preventable disease and a terrible tragedy. In fact the tragedy was living a hopeless life day after day, and suicide was the obvious solution for a long time before the actual act. Friends come out of the woodwork always too late.
