What are the countries that have met the quota, apart from Germany?

Yep. It’s crazy to me the term used by the nazis “involuntary euthanasia” is the same that is used by wikipedia.

Its like calling “rape”, “involuntary lovemaking”.

From what I’ve read it should be considered a disability in my opinion.

But it seems it was removed from the DSM with some psychologists and psychiatrists saying it wasn’t a legitimate condition/disability. (what the NYT article covers)

nope. narcissism is not a disability, according to a quick google search.

And even so NPD the clinical diagnosis is very different from what layman call “narcissism”.

Man the ableist comments here really suck :(

Please stop insinuating: disabled = stupid, or disabled = horrible people.

Yep. When I became disabled my right wing (ex)-friends told me I should probably use assisted suicide because this was “no way to live”. Fuck those ableist people. I’m here happy with life.

Aktion T4 was a campaign of mass murder against disabled people by involuntary euthanasia in Nazi Germany. The term was first used in post-war trials against doctors who had been involved in the killings.[4] The name T4 is an abbreviation of Tiergartenstraße 4, a street address of the Chancellery department set up in early 1940, in the Berlin borough of Tiergarten, which recruited and paid personnel associated with Aktion T4.[5][b] Certain German physicians were authorised to select patients "deemed incurably sick, after most critical medical examination" and then administer to them a "mercy death" (Gnadentod).[7] In October 1939, Adolf Hitler signed a "euthanasia note", backdated to 1 September 1939, which authorised his physician Karl Brandt and Reichsleiter Philipp Bouhler to begin the killing.


I hate the use of “euthanasia” and “mercy death”. This was genocide, perpetrated by nazi germany and nazi doctors. 300’000 disabled people murdered by doctors and SS.

Mental illnesses are real. But the construct of “mental illness” isn’t. There is no such thing as an “illness” that is completely psychological in nature, ie. only “caused by thoughts and behaviours”.

What are called mental illnesses belongs into three broad categories instead:

Biological Illnesses

Many “mental” illnesses are genuine biological illnesses that have been shunned from fields such as neurology and stigmatised by calling them mental.

Ie. Schizophrenia (part genetic, several brain changes), Bipolar (genetic, HPA axis dysregulation + structural signs), Major depressive disorders etc. I’d like to remind that many genuine illnesses that dont even affect the brain were called mental illnesses before we fully figured the pathology out. From peptic ulcer to lupus.

difficult living conditions manifesting through changes in behaviour

ie. Some cases of anxiety disorder (maybe its normal to be anxious in the case you’re living, ie. stressful 9-5 with lots of responsibilities), reactive depression (it isn’t a mental illness to be depressed when your spouse dies, its completely normal)

Normal behaviours that society chooses to brand as deviant

ie. Gender dysphoria is not a mental illness, it is NORMAL, Same thing as homosexuality was called a mental illness in the past

It's unbelievable how vocal the minority of conservatives on reddit have suddenly gotten in the one sub where a large demographic of important voters often interact. Hmmm. Coincidence?
