If only the US could get the rightwing nuts and those Tea-Baggers to copy cat the immolation. The whole country would line up with matches and gas to help them get started.

I am sure they would copy it . All they would need is for you freebagers to line up .

Horrible form of protest. Is the Chinese gov't moved by it?

Do you really think the U.S. government would really care if people in the U.S. did it? I mean honestly, if one of the Koch's did this, the average HP hatist would cheer.

It is the last resort of the oppressed who have no resources other than their own bodies.
Nice try, but implausible. I for one, would not celebrate the death even of someone with whom I disagree.

Yes.....you are correct. It is getting to the point, that some of those rightwing nuts just might, self combust, whether they mean to or not. It would be great fun....a time of celebration.

not to worry.... the Chinese will eat anything BBQ'd

Since China doesn't seem to care one bit, its kind of a stupid way to protest anything. Its like hunger strikes. Unless the group you are protesting about really doesn't want you to die, all you are doing is hurting yourself.

It is often the last resort of an oppressed people who have nothing. No rights, no opportunities, no control over their own lives.
I know, it seems irrational to us. But bad as things may get, we usually have some hope. Even in North America people commit suicide when life seems personally unbearable. Even with "It Gets Better" and suicide help lines. In situations of oppression, it does not get better--it gets worse.

While I get that people who feel they have nothing to live for or whose lives are so painful they want to end it, but these public displays are something different.

It isn't doing any good taking care of the problem. Please find another way to get your point across and stop setting yourselves on fire.

For the life of me, I swear to you I NEVER want to see someone self-immolate. I can't imagine the horror & I wouldn't want to live with that image in my brain.

Self Immolation is the lamest, most self defeating form of resistance I can think of.

Protest... By killing yourself.
01:24 PM on 02/14/2013
That is just a bizzare and painful way to get a point across!! At least these lunitics who strap a bomb to themselves die quick and painless??? Just crazyness

The lunatics who strap a bomb to themselves are out to kill OTHERS. Their own death is almost incidental. Self-immolation harms no one but the human candle. BIG difference.
02:23 PM on 02/14/2013
I agree there is a Big difference but still both INSANE and the pain involved in pouring gas all over and setting yourself on fire is just unimaginable and accomplishes NOTHING "for thier cause"?

Both are done out of despair. One uses their own body as a weapon, the other as a statement. Both are horrific.
