This is sick and twisted. This is clearly wrong and on that infamous slippery slope. Elders have paid their dues to society and deserve to be cared for in return.

This is Socialism/Communism at work. Once you are no longer productive you should be killed. This is the future every single one of these “Democratic Socialist” Commie bastards want with their universal healthcare. We have to fight this way of thinking tooth and nail.

Communists don't think so, that's why that's some of the first to go is the elderly. Satanic as fuck isn't it?

actually the elderly are disposed of early for the same reason as the intellectuals

Yes. The children are supposed to care for their parents as a thank you for being cared for by their parents. Not hold mom down so she can be lethally injected so the kids can afford a better vacation.

Satanic would frankly be an improvement over communist barbarism.

I don't get the sentiment that simply not dying has done some service to society. A seventy year old whose lived on welfare or disability and never paid taxes hasn't contributed much, what dues have they paid simply by staying alive? I hear older generations talking about how entitled younger people are, but this idea that being old automatically entitles people to certain good treatment is baffling.

Thats kinda why @turtlesareNotevil said that this is a slippery slope. Who gets to decide that cutoff for who's contributed enough to receive end of life care, and for how long? On the flip side of that coin, we keep certain people alive well past what might be humane now too, not because we maybe should, but because we can and are afraid of giving someone the power to order ~anothet~ *another persons death. It's a really big and complex issue.

We're not talking about good treatment, we're talking about executing people whose only "crime" is age.

Flip the script. Fuck babies, demanding little things, what have they done? Who are they to demand our attention?

This is a generation that the fact that their elders are the reason they exist escapes them. It's no wonder there's Antifa and lots of Democrats with that level of brain failure running about.

Socialist societies don't care what you put in. Only what they can take. Once you stop putting in you are on the chopping block.

[–] lord_nougat 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

A generous assessment. You're on the chopping block regardless with those heathens!
