Yes Barbara, It Is Cruel

Utilitarianism at work: "Taxpayer dollars are limited for publicly funded programs. We try to come up with polices that provide the most good for the most people." In our world, what this amounts to is: "we’ll pay for you to die, but not pay for you to live." Don't think so? Read this Oregon gem.

Such is the outcome from mid- to late-19th century philosophy. We are slaves to our intellectual history.
