Column explores ‘elite’ promotion of ‘killing off the elderly’ as good for America

Back during the run-up to the “passage” (hardly an above-board process) of Obamacare, we wrote several columns discussing how government-run health care would alter the nature of medical treatment and likely provide new enticement toward estate looting actions.  One such article was Obamacare a potential boon for estate looters, probate abusers, another Obamacare: Stimulus for Estate Abuse?

We know no one is going to apologize to Congressman Paul Ryan for using his likeness in a 2011 and now a new version of “throw Granny off the cliff” ads produced by pro-Obamacare interests.  It is nice, however, to see analysis that recognizes not only the dangers and limitations of a government-run health care program, but also that those who support such a program most put at risk the elderly and vulnerable of our society.

While always a self-evident point, it was also a lost point as long as emotion rather than reason was allowed (or designed) to dominate targeted public discourse arenas.  The idea that government-run health care is a guise for an agenda of an unrevealed sort is also not far-fetched when the history and ideology of Obamacare’s staunchest supporters is studied.

Funny how things change when reality sets in.  Here is Michael Snyder’s The Elite Are Attempting To Convince Us That Killing Off The Elderly Is Good For America article:

What should be done with elderly Americans when they become very seriously ill? Should we try to save their lives or should we just let them die? Unfortunately, there is a growing consensus among the “intellectual elite” that most elderly people are not going to have a high enough “quality of life” to justify the expense of costly life saving procedures.

This philosophy is now being promoted very heavily through mainstream news outlets, in our television shows and in big Hollywood movies. The elite are attempting to convince us that killing off our sick grandparents is cool and trendy.

We are being told that “pulling the plug” on grandma and grandpa is compassionate (because it will end their suffering), that it is good for the environment and that it is even good for the economy. We are being told that denying life saving treatments to old people will dramatically reduce health care costs and make the system better for all of us. We are being told that it is not “efficient” for health insurance companies to shell out $100,000 for an operation that may extend the life of an elderly person by 6 months.

But the truth is that all of this is part of a larger agenda that the elite are attempting to advance. As I have written about previously, the elite love death, and they truly believe that reducing the population is good for society and good for the planet. Sadly, population control propaganda has reached a fever pitch in recent months. Time Magazine has just come out with a very shocking cover story entitled “How To Die”. The article goes on and on about how wonderful and compassionate it is to remove life-saving treatment from sick relatives.
