Suffering as a primary subject by itself

Suffering as a theme is often used to talk about religion, morality, philosophy, etc. That's alright. I propose however that be set up in our culture a place, a new 'domain of interest', where suffering is considered as a primary subject by itself.

Such a place can be set up on the internet, I believe. The purpose of this blog is to contribute to that end by visiting the works which speak of suffering as a first concern. With time, with links to one work and then to another, it is hoped that people of various groups will progressively interlink in one coherent setting to form an internet hub on suffering. For instance it could be in a wiki like Dealing with Suffering which would be developed on a model like The Psychology Wiki. [last two sentences were edited on 2006-09-12]
