lahk is 100000
so more than 200000 per year commit suicide.

The reason Finland’s ultimate distribution of income is so equal is not because its great education system has made everyone receive high paychecks (an impossible task), but because Finland has put in place distributive policies that make sure its national income is shared broadly. In 2010, Finland’s tax level was 42.5 percent of its GDP, which was nearly double the tax level of the U.S. By strategically spreading that tax money around through a host of cash transfer and benefit programs, Finland’s high market poverty rate of 32.2 percent fell to just 7.3 percent. Its child poverty rate, which Finland focuses extra attention on, fell down to 3.9 percent. Overall economic inequality took a similar dive.

Today, the region is paying the price for the failure of top-down modernisation and the disintegration of artificial post-colonial national borders and frail political edifices. And with the evaporation of the great hopes pinned on the Arab Spring of the possibility of change through peaceful means and popular protests, extremism and violence have reared their head once more. But as disillusionment and despair descend on the region and tighten their icy grip on its throat, this deformed ghoulish child of crisis looks uglier, deadlier and more vindictive than ever.

' The serfdom by debt is a form of modern slavery, where the ordinary people lose the freedom of the most basic of movement, loses the freedom of choice. Girls and children are forced to work long hours with a little rest. More than five million children are born in such slavery in India. Its parents or grandparents could have asked for borrowing a sum little money to some terrateniente local y, as a result, generations and generations to come work for the same pattern. Are the prisoners, children prisoners.'

very happy for the exposure.
very sad that it's news. ..ie: a new idea.

Remind me, again, why it's unthinkable that we abolish the police as a mistaken path and try some different social strategies?
