Quote from Assisted suicide, The Economist, 21st July 2014

Assisted suicide, Easeful death. Most people in the Western world favour assisted suicide. The law should reflect their will.

Moral absolutes are rare. When faced with dilemmas societies draw boundaries and carve out exceptions. In even the seemingly clearest of cases, such as the prohibition on killing, exceptions are made for things like war and self-defence.

Assisted suicide is no different and each society’s boundaries will no doubt differ and evolve, as they already have.

A simple question. Or is it?

I want to know why you keep going back to Pamplona, and the fiesta of San Fermín.
