Peru's ex-president Garcia's suicide to avoid arrest reminded me of general officers and politicians who, although unethical and wicked, were foxy but rational. They ought've been punished, but they cunningly escaped punishment through suicide. They haven't been labelled of 'mentally ill', as their suicides are disapproved.
I'm assuming that some of the jumpers in the Sep 11 2001 attacks on the WTC weren't judged irrational for dying by suicide.
Doesn't this subjectivity mean that rational suicide is pathologized?
Any similar lists for Japan? I know of this one that refers to a handful of Japanese WW2 top brass.
