When the boomers hit the nursing homes, and the cost of their care is being borne by the state, death will become downright fashionable. "Right to Die" will morph seamlessly into "Duty to Die" almost overnight.
IMO, we are already there.
Last night Sean Hannity was live from Rivera Beach, FL, where the city gubmint there plans to take some 2400 homes. Some of these folks have lived there 40 years and for other, it is the home where they grew up or their parents lived. The Mayor stated that these Riviera Beach residents had a "duty' to vacate for the good of the community. "the good" being for private developers to build condos, malls and marinas.
We are already on the slippery slope and some of us are clawing our way back up. The government and medical field get to decide exactly how much life, how much liberty and how much pursuit of happiness we are entitled to. All of these are directly related on how much of a drain we are on either the collective economy or the economy of any one individual, or how many people will be made happy vs. our own selfish individual happiness. Forget about the liberty part, that left a long time ago. After all the Consitution is a "living document", right? You bet your bippy that someone else's living and someone else's life is worth more than yours.
What someone else posted was exactly right. Baby boomers cannot arrive in their golden years thinking they are going to get equal access to ventilators and feeding tubes as their predecessors.
