RE: why is death so taboo in western society?
Probably cause they are not too keen on us getting the idea that the dead might be trying to help us. They design entertainment and religion to make death into a horrible curse on existence.

But there is a reason entire cultures worship their ancestors to this day, their presence is a constant factor in the world, we have just been kept ignorant of this fact by all the boogey-man programming designed to elicit an reflex revulsion regarding all things related to death.

Sigh.

Actually on a metaphysical level, death is our biggest ally and lifetime friend, always with us and never judgemental, we just refuse to acknowledge its blessings until the time comes to make one of many transitions it leads us through.

The movie "Meet Joe Black" had an interesting angle on this perspective, very surprising for an American film, I thought.

Once you see what reality really is, you just have to laugh!

In China, there are few individual rights. Everything is for the group rather than the individual. This explains why they allow plastic rice, lead filled toys and poison dog food. It doesn't matter if a few die. They do not respect each individual person's life. The west sees life much differently. Here, each person is important.

Exactly. Plus they build their own coffins because they have no money to buy a better one.

And what does coffin building have to do with the fear of death?

We are a fully materialistic society. Even our religions must appear rational. Hence the fear of the unseen. doomed

If people really knew they were going to die, knew it in their guts and were reminded of it vividly every so often, they might watch less television.
