Au inceput sa ne ucida, disperandu-ne, dispersându-ne

Aaron Swartz s-a spânzurat.

Acesta este ultimul său articol, postat pe blogul personal. Nu pare a fi scris de un sinucigaș: mai degrabă de un disperat. Concluzia lui Batman e decisivă:

The movie concludes by emphasizing that Batman must become the villain, but as usual it never stops to notice that the Joker is actually the hero. But even though his various games only have one innocent casualty, he is much too crazy to be a viable role model for Batman. His inspired chaos destroys the criminals, but it also terrorizes the population. Thanks to Batman, society does not devolve into a self-interested war of all-against-all, as he apparently expects it to, but that does not mean anyone enjoys the trials.

Thus Master Wayne is left without solutions. Out of options, it is no wonder the series ends with his staged suicide.

Cu5 ani în urmă își analiza depresia cu minuțiozitatea unui medic ce se știe infestat:

Depressed mood: Surely there have been times when you have been sad. Perhaps a loved one has abandoned you or a plan has gone horribly awry. Your face falls. Perhaps you cry. You feel worthless. You wonder whether it is worth going on. Everything you think about seems bleak  the things you have done, the things you hope to do, the people around you. You want to lie in bed and keep the lights off. Depressed mood is like that, only it does not come for any reason and it does not go for any either. Go outside and get some fresh air or cuddle with a loved one and you don t feel any better, only more upset at being unable to feel the joy that everyone else seems to feel. Everything gets colored by the sadness.

Nu știm dacă Aaron s-a spânzurat el în 11 ianuarie sau l-au spânzurat alții în 11 ianuarie. Poate nu vom ști niciodată. Poate ne vom spânzura cu toții și nu vom ști niciodată cine ne spânzură. Pentru că vom fi morți, și morții nu pot schimba nimic .
