Quick Deaths

A couple of hundred years ago, people did not linger. If they became sickly, an infection would kill them in a few days. Today, we use expensive technology to keep people barely alive for years, often against their will. It is a macabre thing to do to the elderly. It is most certainly not for their benefit, but for their children who can’t let go of their parents and for elderly silly Christians who have been traumatised with hell-fire and are afraid to die.
