Some commenters are claiming that while they cannot stop watching 13 Reasons Why, they hate Hannah Baker and believe all the characters are “privileged assholes”.
I suspect this the point. In this country of immense wealth and power, where many are well-fed and indulge whims easily, the sad truth is that suicide is the second highest cause of teen death.
That only makes sense when viewed as existing in a deeply flawed society, one that produces the traumatized thinking of a Hannah Baker too often.
Our society needs to rediscover its humanity. 13 Reasons Why seeks to start that process.
