Anthony Bourdain. Does it make sense?

Does it makes sense for a healthy man fully engaged with his friends and colleagues, his work, his family, and the world around him to spontaneously kill himself with no warning signs?
Did he voice opinions that would anger and threaten the interests of people known to be and capable of committing violence?

He sure did. He supported the people of Iran and Palestine in defiance of a near total US news media blackout on any discussion of their humanity and directed pointed criticism at “ex”-Mossad operatives who are deeply involved in US politics.

Was he on a trajectory of become more outspoken and detailed in his criticisms regarding subjects these people find sensitive?

His tweet the month before he died making a link between a group of “ex”-Mossad agents working for both Hilary Clinton ally Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump (he was one of the few people to pay attention) shows that tendency.
