The other night at a gathering the hostess casually stated that Sweden has the highest suicide rate in the world. No one contradicted this statistic. When I questioned why a social democracy far in advance of most in regard to a civilized way of living would result in high rate of suicide, no one knew. It doesn't make sense to me that a better life for all would result in a higher suicide rate. In fact, it would make our efforts for a better world questionable, to say the least. Is this some more anti-liberal propaganda?

Please enlighten me or point a way to usefuly website or statistics. Thank you. Bert
