Fatalistic - Basically when people live in a society where death seems better then there current living conditions, so basically Russia "Each victim of suicide gives his act a personal stamp which expresses his temperament, the special conditions in which he is involved, and which, consequently, cannot be explained by the social and general causes of the phenomenon".
Emile Durkheim Reality seems valueless by comparison with the dreams of fevered imaginations; reality is therefore abandoned.
Emile Durkheim Sadness does not inhere in things; it does not reach us from the world and through mere contemplation of the world. It is a product of our own thought. We create it out of whole cloth.

Division of Labor in Society
The Elementary Forms of Religious Life
The Rules of Sociological Method
