Youth in Asia, Aged in England

by Smitty (h/t Digg)

Digg points to a Sun article Senile 'have a duty to die'. That sounds like some raging flamebait, but a bit of Googling turns up some other links:So there is some credibility to:
Speaking to church journal Life and Work she said she had just written an article entitled A Duty to Die?
She went on: “I feel there is a wider argument that if somebody desperately wants to die because they are a burden to their family, or the state, then I think they should.”
The Baroness, the first Government-linked expert to speak in favour of euthanasia, was accused of “barbaric” comments.
Neil Hunt, of the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “I am shocked that Lady Warnock could disregard the value of the lives of people with dementia so callously.”
Baroness Warnock has served on many Lords committees including those dealing with medical ethics and scientific procedures and has worked with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

How can these ideas be called "barbaric"? Don't they spring from government experts, who know WTF is good for you?

Isn't the whole point of Progress to make Logan's Run a reality in which we can all be told when to be born, how to feel good, and when to do a face plant in the recycling bin?


  1. ROTFLOL! I can't get past that picture.

  2. Is it wrong to laugh at that little kid eating second base?

    The answer's probably "yes," but I don't really care. This pic is getting circulated...
