Hurry Up And Die!

The Deputy Prime Minister in Japan, who has been in office for less than five days, Taro Aso made a few controversial comments about the care (or cessation of care more accurately) of the elderly in Japan according to this ABC News article.

He referenced the elderly who need help feeding themselves as “tube people” and went so far as to say that the elderly should, “Hurry up and die.”

His reasoning behind this comment? Because their deaths would alleviate the cost it takes to keep them alive which is paid for by the Japanese government.

He later said these comments were misinterpreted, saying he was speaking of his own personal wishes for a timely death not those of all Japanese elderly people.

He went on to say that his will was already in order with his family and that he would not want to linger.

According to the article:

“Even if (doctors) said they could keep me alive, it would be unbearable,” he said. “I would feel guilty, knowing that (treatment) was being paid for by the government.”

This is not the first time Aso has been in the hot seat for his comments on Japan’s aging population.

Five years ago, he said the elderly were a “feeble” group and, “Why should I have to pay taxes for people who just sit around and do nothing but eat and drink?””…

The above perspective is not an isolated view:

There is a clear consensus among the global elite that overpopulation is the primary cause of the most important problems that the world is facing and that something desperately needs to be done about it.

They truly believe that humans are a plague upon the earth and that we will literally destroy the planet if we are left to our own devices.

To the elite, everything from global warming to our growing economic problems can be directly traced back to the lack of population control.

They warn that if nothing is done about the exploding population, we will be facing a future full of poverty, war and suffering on a filthy, desolate planet.

They complain that it “costs too much” to keep elderly patients that are terminally ill alive, and they eagerly promote abortion for babies that are “not wanted” because they would be “too much of a burden” on society…
