The Atlantic: Why I Hope to Die at 75 Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, former senior health adviser to President Obama, and one of the Affordable Care Act's chief architects writes in The Atlantic: “An argument that society and families—and you - will be better off if nature takes its course swiftly and promptly" and that "society would be far better off if people quit trying to live past age 75" [no shit, he said "Society" would be better off... Pfffff.... *snort*]. See, to Emanuel, it is inefficient to waste medical resources on those no longer productive. AKA: You, the retired, the unproductive, the old, no longer paying tax to the State, well, the State..... Errrrr, I mean "society" has no use for you any longer - so, for the Good of the State..... Errrrrr, I mean, for "Society" (hell, State/Society - pretty much synonyms) - your quite demise is preferable - bye bye time. “75 is a pretty good age to aim to stop” -- Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel (former senior health adviser to POTUS Obama) See? Isn't it wonderful living as tax-chattel in a hyper-regulated tax-pen? Isn't it nice knowing the State has the power, not just the power - but the LEGAL OBLIGATION, to initiate force against innocent 75 year olds, IF that's what the State 'Regulators' deem is good for them. And, if media tells the functional illiterate Millennial voter, someone who's been conditioned for 12 years to raise their hand and ask permission to pee, that 'This is Good for Society', then guess what? They'll unquestioningly support their Regulators and Political Masters who, without need of vote, decide to enact this as Law of the Land. Anyone found providing Healthcare to the elderly, they'd be just as easily placed into a State-run rape case as some guy who had the gall to smoke a bit of weed for his back-ache. That's the funny thing about idiots and their ability to normalize to anything and every transgression made against them. Up becomes Down. Right becomes Left. Wash, rinse, and let History repeat. Enjoying the New Economy yet? Don't worry, we've plenty more decades of this to live through. So, if you're not enjoying it, you will be soon.
