the fact that he chose to post here instead of just doing says he's really not serious. I'm not about to join in some teenagers agnst/pitty party. to paraphrase crap or get off the pot.

In a rich man's house there is no place to spit but his face.

Nobody can force you to do anything. You were not forced to go to school, you may not have liked going, but forced, really? Wrapped in chains and carried past the school gates?

School is not child labor. Even if you were forced to go, you did not have to do anything once there, a teacher may put a book in front of you, but nothing can force you to read it.

You are not forced to live. I take it you eat and drink, you do not have to.


Article 3

Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 5

No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

How are your rights being violated? Join Amnesty International and learn what are real violations of human rights. If your rights are being abused ask them for assistance.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

OK, Anthony, you have a wish to die. Be patient, it'll come sooner or later and without any 'rights' being violated. There are probably some people who think that death, is a violation of their 'rights', as much as having children is a 'right'. The ability to have children is a gift, as is Life. If you want to throw a gift away, then, thats your privelige, not your 'right'!

Ten years ago, I had a Brain Tumour and for any multitude of reasons, my employers at that time, decided that I was going to be ex-employee. You would not believe the petty rubbish that was thrown in my direction, but, I just about managed to retain my sanity. I negotiated a 'Termination of Contract' with some very ugly threats behind it (mine), backed-up by documented evidence (including notes and recordings), which I still have. It cost them dearly, to avoid going to Court - a years pay, in fact. No-one was putting me through that rubbish and walking away!

Now, I'm working in the Legal Department of a local Authority - I figured that having some training in the Law, would probably be a good thing to have. It will be, when I nail my former employers for infringement of copyright material! However, in the last ten years, I've made some brilliant friends, here, for example and I'm actually enjoying the most 'stable' years of my Life, to date.

Life is not a right; it is a gift we get once. Make the most of it and enjoy as much of it as you can. When was the last time, you sat in a quiet secluded wood and looked in wonder at a bird?

Don't take life too seriously, as you'll never come out of it alive!
