I see preventing the horrendous and profound (to say nothing of violating the Fourth Amendment in a big way) crime of genocide, a crime so vast it takes a whole society to commit, as of more importance than fretting over suicides. These continue to chug along at the unvarying rate of circa 40K annually by every means. Not to detract from the tragedy, but of higher priority is making this crime of civilizations a *former* crime of civilizations, like witch burnings.

Do nothing, therefore, to diss armed civil rights. That is, don't act like the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
Wanna stop school shootings? End Gun-Free Zones, of course.

enbie = non-binary, n.b.

Basically the libertarians of gender.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
