UK: Jonathan Jones — ‘I am a dick’

August 18, 2012
This man is a complete dick. Do not approach him, but alert rational authorities. Under NO circumstances should you allow him to write or say anything!

…because I enjoy seeing fellow human beings undergo incredible agonies.

The image of Tony Nicklinson’s despair is profoundly moving. In his pain, he momentarily transcends his condition to communicate to the world. That should make us wonder about the wisdom of ever making it permissible to end this terrible marvellous thing called life.

That’s all there is to say, really.

Update 2012-08-24: So is Richard Carvath.

  1. Great summary. Richard Carvath is a sociopath. Al-Qaeda’s suicide bombers, and even Stalin had more compassion than him. Why? Their victims tended to die instantly, and hence painlessly.

    What a stupid reporter. Missed the point absolutely. This is not about what we think of Tony Nichlinson’s agony, it’s about HIS wish to die.
    To deny him is cruel. We keep killing other people who want to live yet deny someone in terrible agony who wants to die.
    Makes me so angry.
