Mises remarks

I guess you're right that Mises didn't explicitly mention suicide in that chapter, although he mentioned that when "the forces of resignation get the upper hand, man dies; he does not turn into a plant". That sounds like suicide to me. The hospice patient who quits eating or drinking any longer because he has given up on the possibility of future accomplishments or enjoyments would fit very well the description of what Mises is writing about.
