“Who’s in charge here?” / Memorable Fancies #1626

[“I cannot self-terminate.” – Terminator 2: Judgment Day]

[“I’d rather be nothing.” – Alien 3]

[“It is forbidden to unplug yourself.” – Jean Baudrillard]

Opinions differ about suicide. Some call every death a suicide, giving up the will to survive the disease, or elude the killer.

Others dismiss this view as delusive; we have no say in our deaths, they say, however much we passionately want to control this second-most-important life event, no matter how well we’ve convinced ourselves that we’re doing this last final thing ourselves, to ourselves, for ourselves.

Who is right?
