Long before global warming causes the oceans to boil or AI robots replace the human race, Social Security systems will bankrupt governments across the developed world. Leave it to an MIT trained economist to solve the problem.
In all fairness to Professor Yusuke Narita he was only talking about killing off elderly Japanese, because there are far too many of them in a nation that stopped having babies. And let’s face it, who pays attention to ranting Yale professors anymore besides click-bait journalists at the New York Times?
And yet, euthanasia is now the fastest growing government healthcare program in Canada. So maybe Yusuke is on to something. Not just for the elderly but for anyone who puts too much of a drain on government finances.
Of course, we have to make sure the burden doesn’t fall disproportionately on preferred identities. And so, the Babbling Beaver calls on MIT’s DEI-empowered School of Humanities, Arts, and Socialist Scientism to launch a new euthanasia diversity dashboard. Because what we need most to guide public policy is Settled Science.
