Abstract: Epicurus a “Greek Philosopher” argued that death is a good thing for a person who is deprived of good things in life such as social justice, employment and education. Shally Kagan accepted the philosophy of Epicurus in his death book, though, he provides a solution. He said in his book that bad things in life can be mitigated with psychological factor amnesia. If we glimpse over historical perspective for Pakistan then, Epicurus argument would be convincing for layman about death is a good thing because in Pakistan people are deprived of good things in life. Pakistani people were victims of bad things such as suicidal attacks, natural disasters and unemployment after 2000. Nevertheless, in this paper we gave different solution than Kagan Shally for Epicurus death dispute. We follow World Bank Millennium development goal second “Education” and (Egloff, 2014) psychological rationale; that explain violence prevention is a means to be applied in early childhood education. Education is the only way of socio-emotional learning such as suicidal attacks and gives us a solution of bad things that turn out to our lives. Combining World Bank MDG’s aim and (Egloff, 2014) thesis; we can preserve happiness and prosperity for Pakistani citizens if we register our young generation to public schools.
