89-year-old European woman commits suicide after being ‘left behind by digital age’

Technological advances have been credited with saving many people’s lives over the years, but one British woman made the decision to end her life because she believed she had been “left behind by [the] digital age.” According to the UK Mirror, an 89-year-old retired art teacher, identified only as Anne, felt gadgets had created a “lack of humanity.”

“They say adapt or die,” Anne allegedly said before her death. “At my age, I feel I can’t adapt, because the new age is not an age that I grew up to understand.”

“There’s a story from Europe that portends our future,” Pat said on radio this morning. “These are the kinds of stories we’re going to be hearing soon in the United States.”

The Mirror reports:

Peacefully clutching her loving niece’s hand, a pensioner committed suicide at Dignitas after she despaired of modern life.

[…]

The British OAP spent a few days sightseeing with her niece then slipped away at the clinic near Zurich in Switzerland. Shortly before her death from a fatal dose of drugs, she had claimed people were addicted to gadgets.

[…]

In the UK assisted suicide is illegal and helping someone die can carry a 14-year jail term. But legal guidelines state anyone acting with compassion towards a loved one is unlikely to be prosecuted.

It seems as though Anne was not only disturbed by humanity’s increasing reliance on computers and televisions but also “the damage being wrought on the planet by overcrowding and pollution.” Furthermore, she was horrified by the rows and rows of pre-made meals she saw at the grocery store.

“She didn’t like TV dinners, so she couldn’t handle it anymore,” Pat asked. “I’m just going to die because there’s too many prepared foods. Could you not go home and fix your family a homemade from scratch meal instead? No, she had to kill herself.”

The Mirror reports that Anne, who was an ex-Royal Navy electrician, “played tennis until age 70,” but she had recently suffered from heart and lung disease. She was not, however, considered terminally ill.

“If you’re in that position, don’t you just do something crazy and erratic? I don’t know, jump out of a plane and forget to open your parachute or something spectacular,” Stu asked. “[Instead], you go with your niece to a clinic in Switzerland and off yourself over frozen dinners?”

    She suffered from terminal libtardation and in the end, it killed her. So she was really terminally ill. Beware democrats.

    What a pair of twirps! Laughing over someone who simply cannot take what people have become?

    Has no one here tried to carry on a conversation with people who were constantly fiddling with their devices? Somehow, “I’m just reading my email” has become a far more valid justification than “I’m just reading my book.” Traffic deaths — though they are important — raise the question of why anyone needs constant twaddling anyway, or, really, any twaddling at all.

    Where’s Glen? This went way too far in the humor department. She had such despair about how this world has changed since, I’m thinking, she was a child. I won’t put words in her mouth or assume anything. Listen to her words, beyond the frozen food. I feel embarrassed that I sat in front of the computer this long to listen to this heartless commentary on a woman’s suicide.

    Texting is the latest social wall seniors are forced to scale to stay in touch with their Contemporary children because they no longer answer their phone or answer E-mail. Children claiming they only respond to Text messages ask elderly parents with failing skill and eyesight to learn how to text, use brail and how to cope with isolation if they don’t – because that’s how it is!

    At the same time seniors perceive this demand as children hiding from parent telephone calls because the children don’t want the painful commitment of real-time talking.

    I agree. I understand not wanting to feed this idea, but I am surprised at these guys on Glenn Beck. I don’t care what someone’s age is. Suicide is NOT a laughing matter. Their comments were in really bad taste. I don’t see why that makes her a lib either. I am a staunch conservative and I understand exactly what she is saying. Look what is happening to us. As a society, we have become so desensitized to everything that even suicide is a big chuckle now. She might be saying it in a different way. Maybe it had a slant because of her age and maybe she’s on some kind of medications, but frankly I think the reaction of some of you people on here is worse than what she had to say. I’m NOT advocating we all do ourselves in, but let’s face it, most people are so glued to their technical toys that many of them don’t know how to relate to people anymore. Listen to yourselves. Most people if they see someone in the street being dragged away, they don’t want to get involved. I guess that’s funny too.

    The woman’s main complaint was a lack of humanity. One look at these two guys, and I think we’d all pretty much have to agree with her. Ironically, these bozos aren’t sharp enough to understand that they’re simply proving her point.

    Well, I agree their reaction was probably not too sensitive. I don’t think suicide is a laughing matter.

I have been depressed but never to the point where I felt there was no need to live. Out of her desperation came suicide. And they laughed. It’s not okay.

  • The truth about spammers

    There are so many people who choose assisted suicide because of illness. I wouldn’t choose that way to go but I’m not them. It’s their decision.

    You don’t see their stories on a website in some other country because they went that way. What makes this story different is the political spin she chose to attach to her suicide. All the discussions here are a result of what she wanted to leave behind as her legacy.

    People say I don’t have any compassion for her but how can a dead person command compassion? Have compassion for her loving niece. I’m doing her bidding by exposing her political reasons for sensationalizing her death. It’s what she wanted. She was going to kill herself because she was terminally ill. She brought politics into it. She was highly educated and she knew what she was doing.

    I’m sorry she got sick, I’m sorry she felt she had no other way out. I’m not sorry for her turning it into a political statement. Here we all are discussing it but so many don’t see the reasons we’re here. It’s not because she’s committed suicide, she did what she did.

    Have a nice day.

    I was a little disappointed myself. I think this whole thing was taken out of context. I think this poor woman who was raised in an era of books, art and culture in general, just can’t stand a world where kids don’t know what playing outside means and instead are glued to TV’s or video games, nobody writes letters or thank-you notes – some don’t even send cards anymore, just e-cards, and young people are even losing the art of conversation now because of texting. It’s really quite sad I think. I’m sure there was way more in this story than was disclosed but I think she found it all too depressing and too much effort at that age. Nobody knows how any of us are going to feel about life at that age until we get there. God Bless her and I hope she rests in peace.

    “your fellow american who was fighting beside you , came home to a degraded society that he was risking his life for , being away from his family and found no alternative because no one would even hire him and so he did the same thing “

    You wouldn’t understand this but we’re brothers and sisters.

    If he made it a political statement then that statement should be explored, just like we’re doing here. If I was made aware of his problems I would help him just like I help those at the VA Hospital and nursing facility. I’m a volunteer at both. I would not recommend suicide to anyone.

    How many suicides have you been involved with? I’ve known a few people who have gone that way. None of which blamed technology, overpopulation and frozen dinners for their problems.

    This has always been the case. Most of the time it’s not really the modernity that’s the problem, that’s just the excuse.

All though in my heart I know that Glenn is leading us all to the path of righteousness and salvation . I just don’t see the humor in a 89 yr. old women committing suicide for any reason .

    I don’t think killing oneself at such an old age is a suicide. As a label it is but there has to be a dignified way for an elderly to die without waiting for it month and month on tubes until the last breath and knowing the whole time that they are dying. Modern society had found a way to not to see what they want not to see. They shove their elderly into nursing homes, hospitals, get caregivers etc. So nobody can see the pain they go through-peeing in the bed, not moving, not eating well and worst of all, away from their family with strangers around them. I have taken my kids to nursing homes for visits for holidays and even the best ones have extreme sadness because their loved ones put them there.

    Whatever she said she was upset with most likely is not related to what she did.

    All generations are connected. The older ones complain of the new generation yet it was them who stopped cooking for their kids, it was them who wanted to work and needed prepped dinner. Now we are responsible for our kids. We let them be brats and call it “secure”, we give them freedoms because we are told we have to treat them like adults, kids grow up with babysitters and house cleaners, do you think they will know how to keep a family? NO.

    Is it possible that it was a hint to a niece that she feels alone?
    Plus, the only over population is in India, China, and African countries. And yes, Muslim populations are increasing exponentially too. Whites are disappearing.
    Plus, I do no think there was a single generation that thought the younger ones are not worse.
    I always wonder if people like you have ever read a single book or history in their lives. Human lives are the most comfortable now then ever. “Sad things” were when plague was killing millions, millions were depending on the crop, the wars, the famine.

    Compassion should be left for children who die and not elderly ladies who feel they had enough.

    I don’t feel compassion to suiciders because it is a choice they make. If the lady was killed because she was holding iphone and she was mugged because of it, then yes, she can complain of technology.
    If her family made a stunt out of her dying (I guess they could take the meds from her but they didn’t) and made it public then reactions to it will be different. There are people with cancer who suffer and fight for a day of life and it is a spit in their face. “Too much technology,” right.

    The greater question should be why you are promoting YOUR liberal ideological trash upon America. What makes your view correct and the rights wrong? At some point you will awaken and ask yourself “How did we get to this point, when did it happen, and why did I passively allow it?”

    I agree. We are born into this world heading toward death. I would like to think I faced it bravely, and not surrendering. The fact that so many younger people put their parents and grandparents in nursing homes is something they will have to justify when they face God someday.

    The digital age along with a godless society has created a world that seems unfit to live in. It’s understandable she would feel that way. It’s more now than ever the Gospel must be shared to a world in turmoil. The scenario should keep Christians busy with the lost. The digital environment makes it possible to share God’s mercy to the entire world that reads a message of hope. We’re all sinners saved through the blood of the Father’s son Jesus Christ. A message more clearly told in a must read book, the Bible. I’m not advocating a digital message only, there’s much more personal ways, face to face encounters is very rewarding.

    The question to the video should be “What caused my dad to start paying attention to the world around him?” It has been eroding away and those not paying attention are its victims. Her dad may have made the mistake of not filtering the right and wrong through Scripture. A common mistake when one does not compare the words of people with what God has to say on the issue. And God covers all humanities woes.

    Totally amazing… Glenn Beck wasn’t in Nevada where the most action taken against this administration has taken place in the past six years. We need all the voices of patriots against this administration and I am disappointed with Beck. We need Beck and everyone that has a communication capacity to reach and inform Americans. So, I won’t jump on his A$$ he probably would deserve. Maybe he was there, and we didn’t see him. If he was there I would think with his skill to manuever and get press he would have definitely been in front of other youtuber reporters. Regardless, I hope he reads this and gets with the program.
    Words will only motivate people so far, and Beck has done that to the limit. It may be that actions like the Bundy Ranch will be the only things that will make any difference here on with the tyrants. It doesn’t seem to matter much to them any longer what we say. The 1,000 plus people packing heat at the Bundy Ranch turned the despots from the BLM and the sheriff.
    Alex Jones had the scoop of the year with the Harry Reid and his son’s involvement in this land grab to strip the last land holdout so the Chinese can build the Solar Farm on the land, with the stimulus money from our own government, and the sequestration of US land. The worst part is, the Chinese will just ship over their own labor to build it and maintain it.
    Wow! what a story.
    Sorry, this is off topic by I don’t know any other way to get attention to the story of the year that has fallen through the cracks over here, and I am disappointed not angry or resentful. We need every patriot. Our country can be won or lost in the next few years as a republic.

    I never wrote anything about people having too many children. I cited the article that stated overcrowding was HER reason for committing suicide. And personally, I think it’s quite a stupid one. But then, this is how liberals think. They get so worked up about what OTHERS are doing that they can’t think straight.Mainly because they feel so strongly about people thinking and acting the same way they do. Liberalism really is a mental disorder.

    I strongly believe that people can have as many children as they want as long as they are not collecting welfare, food stamps, disability, public housing etc. I think the sooner people start losing benefits, or no longer get a “raise” for every child they pop out, women will be more careful.

    It is truly sad to read your comments. You sound more like a miserable leftist JERK who can’t take someone else’s opinion except your own ideology. Sometimes it is better to agree to disagree intead of namecalling others who don’t agree with your ideas.

    This started years ago, when people became calloused to wrong. Calling evil good and good evil. This happened when Christians became apathetic to evil and going against the very things that Christ had changed in them. Trying to serve to masters, the world and Christ. When human life had no value,and viewed no better than a parasite. Where the family unit became destroyed. These things are what Satan has attacked, the two first blood covenants God made with mankind, marriage between a man and woman and having children. Satan hates mankind, and has sent great deception carried in on mankind PRIDE, the very first sin against God, the father of lies Satan. He has never been able to “make” anyone do anything, it is mankind’s choice, the time is coming and is here to look up because your redemption draws neigh.

    Taking America back means choosing our battles wisely. Sorry, but some of us don’t want to leave our families just to get gunned down at Bundy Ranch. Which WILL happen if the government wants that land and gets threatened by violence. Some things are worth dying for, and Bundy isn’t. It won’t set off the chain reaction around the country needed, to make dying worth it.

    Comment on “The Brainwashing of My Dad” trailer: Funny how tactics once used almost exclusively by the left for generations to promote their world view (big government is best, secular makes more sense and progressive thinking is mankind’s only hope [help me Obiwan]) now being utilized by the right is a brainwashing atrocity!

    Classic elitist thinking. Seems double standards are the rule – not the exception to those on the left. Smart people recognize that there are problems on both sides of the aisle.

    Forget that the domination of the media and education by the people who promote this world view for the last 100 years has contributed to the disintegration of the family and the dumbing down of America. It has caused us to lose our way by homogenizing history and setting our sights on the utopian standard of the collective at the expense of the hard-fought success of the individual.

    One certain outcome of brain “washing*:” it tends to rid the brain of dirt and filth.

    *I ask my God to scrub my brain with great frequency to keep me from becoming just another rube in the neighborhood.. Thank you Lord!

    It is good you are honest about how you feel. Also, it indicates clearly you are thinking on the tyranny onslaught. Thinking people is what we need, because when the proverbial axe is in the stump those people will respond. We need to encourage and educate any American that will listen.

    Stu, you don’t get it and your cynicism over this is unwarranted and cold. A woman who has lived a long and productive life, is overwhelmed by the complexities of our new age. My Dad did the same thing in 2002 at the age of 79 except he just starved himself to death because there was no clinic to go to. So we watched him refuse to eat and then finally not take liquids. He was sick and tired of the complexities of the world, insurance, taxes, computers, cell phones and the like. It was a world that he did not want to navigate nor had the will to do so. Generally, the world has lost the vestiges of humanity, younger generations cannot go 5 minutes without texting or talking on a cell phone and our governments keep piling on complexities that drive sane men to insanity. Best thing that could happen is an EMP that takes us back 100 years and I am only 60.

  • landofaahs

    Then we are in agreement and I’m sorry if I misunderstood you. But if the govt. is going to force people to have insurance even when they don’t believe in it or prefer only catastrophic care, then I think it should be paid by govt and the money taken out of the politicians salary and all the other liberal programs out there. If people could opt out, then the onis would be on the parents for their choices.

  • Anonymous

    The problem with your suggestion is HOW does the government and politicians PAY for the insurance? The government does nothing to earn money, they get their funding from US, the taxpayer. Since both government workers/programs and politicians salaries are paid for by the US taxpayer, the only way it can be paid for is by jacking up taxes and creating new taxes. In other words, WE will still be paying for it no matter what.

    Currently, the government IS paying for obamacare because the vast majority of enrollees are opting for the state plan which is also known as medicAID (welfare)….and because of this, our taxes have gone up and will continue to do so.

  • landofaahs

    I was being sarcastic. Besides, we will never pay back what is owed and the government can just print money until the whole thing collapses and that will give us the opportunity for a restart., We can also then have the separation and run the blue states out of the union. Get all the democrats out .
