    how come? if 10000 dead is statistic then 1 person is just smaller number in statistics and if 1 person dead is tradegy then 10000 dead is 10000 times the same tragedy

    I thought I had already explained that quite adequately. Also, I wonder the same about you - why do you feel bad for random fourteen year old killing him or herself because they can't handle this world, but don't feel bad for mentally unstable 32 year old woman who likely starved herself to death or took a drug overdose?

    Because, after all, Britanny Murphy was just a woman.

    I think you're using this as a platform to spread some liberal rhetoric about why we should embrace social programs and stop war, and as liberal as I may be myself (actually I'm a moderate Democrat) this is why I fucking hate liberals.

    14year old kid killing herself is a real tragedy, this isnt in my opinion. that 14 year old kid happened to be my cousins daughter, but i dont think that it was tragedy just because i knew her.

    i dont feel bad for brittany because i didnt develope eny emotion bond between her or between enyone who knew her. if i would feel bad for everyone i havent developed emotion bond between i would just cry all day because people are dying every second.

    sorry but i dont understand that last sentence and i dont even know exactly what liberals or democrats stand for because we dont use those names for politic parties here

    You're just re-stating in different language what I said to you, thereby answering your own question.

    Have a nice day, comrade.

    We should have a thread all the "don't feel bad for anyone's death because other people die" responses go in. It really does happen everytime a star dies.

    but how can you develope emotion bond between(not to) someone who you dont even personally know? or is it just my low Fe that doesent allow me to form an emotional bond to someone who doesent do the same for me or doesent even know me?

    I already said:

    It happens with celebrities when a person has particularly followed that celebrity's work, because on some artistic level the fan may feel a personal emotional response to the film, book, music, etc. Even though most individuals aren't actually "personally connected" to famous people, the symbolic identification can still be present.
    and this:

    You can also look it as healthy that people express grief, symbolically, through celebrities because grief has to be acknowledged somewhere - even if subconsciously underneath it all it's actually about something else.
    to address that question.
