Should The State Get To Decide Who Lives Or Dies Due To Medical Condition?


Man In The High Castle: In the alternative universe of that show, loyal young Nazi Thomas Smith voluntarily turns himself over to authorities for having untreatable muscular distrophy (in his world you get euthanized for that). In his own mind, he thinks he is doing the right thing. It is hard to get too sympathetic for Nazis, but to the show's credit they do manage to convey the cold clinical horror of such a regime (even for its supposed privileged).

Man In The High Castle is alternative history science fiction. I thought Great Britain prevailed against the real Nazis, but at least on this point apparently not anymore. While we can all recognize the state may have the right to limit subsidized government care (as resources are finite), the state should never have the right to prevent you from seeking care on your own and at your own expense. The state should not limit your natural rights. It is the same as leaving infants out to die of exposure or putting people down because the state deems them useless mouths.

  1. When Sarah Palin uttered the words, death panels, she probably did a greater service to this country than she ever would as VP.

    Unless, of course, she succeeded to the Presidency.

    1. She was absolutely spot on, and they vilified her for it.

  2. What a sin and a shame.

    England is lost. They are going to jail people who protest about this on social media.

    This is what the left wants for America.

  3. Royalty gets its own wing, and are in and out in just a few hours to take their baby home. The subjects are just that, and may or may not get to take their baby home ever. The subjects must not get uppity or they'll be punished for hate speech. And whatever you do, don't train your pet to mock Nazis, because British courts get offended and will fine you. Empty your pockets and remove all screwdrivers, pliers, and scissors; lest they may be used for self-defense.
