Surplus population

Don’t laugh. At some point this could be you:

BabyTrudeau’s courts have not only allowed a broad range of killing of patients, but they will prosecute docs if they refuse to cooperate, meaning that their law is more radical than other countries.

expect to see lots of sob stories about couples offing themselves so they could die together, or about senile old ladies who are being denied euthanasia. The propaganda will persuade a lot of depressed people they are doing a good deed to kill themselves and no longer burden their kids who don’t want to care for them.

and think of all the money you will save!

once this idea becomes common, you will see medical personnel offing people they think are better off dead. I know of two cases where outside (non IHS) docs tried to persuade families to starve their elderly to death because they had strokes. In both cases, the doctors were told off by locals: We don’t do things like that here: we Indians care for our elders.

which is why our people often refused to sign living wills or DNR orders … and “bioethicists” lament this is a problem in the African American community too, and the article wonders why (I can explain why in one word: Tuskegee).

“W-where are you taking me?”

One of the shadowy figures held up some sort of computing device. “Says here you’re an organ donor.”

“But I’m not even sick!”

“Doesn’t matter. The governor’s mistress needs a liver, and you’ve got one.”

    I think the phrase “One way ticket to Oslo” (In reference to that “No one can die on Svalbard” story of the other day) should perhaps be adopted.

    I had not thought of the Tuskegee angle (as to why African-Americans don’t like to sign up to be organ donors), but yes, that makes sense.

    I shudder to think that I may be the generation that has the privilege of becoming Soylent Green or similar. (They wouldn’t like me. I work out a lot and run around in the forest, so would be tough and stringy.)

    Whereas I’m too high in cholesterol. I’d be delicious enough to die for, which defeats the purpose.

    I think at this point I’d be rather bitter, as well as being tough and stringy.

    Maybe the vegetarian lifestyle will suddenly become appealing, after all!
