Re: Dog and Pony Show
As far as having the right to die I think there should be a place so one can legally die with out holding others responsible for the action, (my mother is in the nursing home she is doing well, but there are so many that are in there that nearly beg to let them die, but the establishment will not let them), even tho a few years ago they would not have lived as medical science had not progress far enough to keep them going,
but to keep some one alive at nearly any cost is not right either, I will agree with you there.
I may just be objecting to the title your using "Government assisted suicide", but the problem is when the government starts making the decision that some one needs to go, and that they (government) has the right to decide who lives and who dies.
I think in a general sense were in many areas not that far apart, but have different Ideas on how to achieve the objective,
one of the problems is at some time a can of worms was opened, and in the desire to treat people kind and to give them a chance, they took advantage of the system and it has turned in the mess we have to day that you have described earlier,
