Canada Offers Extermination as Solution to Poverty

Canada’s MAID (medical assistance in dying) policy is good for more than exterminating the mentally ill and quieting bothersome disabled veterans. It is also the Final Solution for poverty.

Daily Mail has the bullet points:

• A doctor approved Les Landry’s application for medical assistance in dying, despite him saying poverty is a major factor in the decision to end his own life

• Landry, 65, awaits verdict of second doctor who visited his home on Wednesday

• Landry says if the second approval isn’t given, he will ‘shop’ for another doctor willing to sign it off – something that’s legal under Canada’s euthanasia laws

• He said benefit cuts mean ‘sooner or later I just won’t be able to afford to live’

• Shocking case lays bare the relaxed approach to euthanasia in Canada, where experts say ‘choosing to die is more accessible’ than support for disabled people

“I told it to the doctor, I want to live. I don’t want to die,” says Landry, who has been able to live with epilepsy and diabetes. But he can’t afford life, so alternate arrangements need to be made.

When Big Government rather than voluntary charity cares for the needy, crude one-size-fits-all solutions eventually degenerate into whatever is expedient. To the government, we aren’t people; we are just numbers. As a Founding Father of progressivism famously said, “One death is a tragedy; 1 million is a statistic.”

Exterminating the poor is quintessentially progressive, in that it is the sort of policy Trudeau et al. would accuse their opposition of secretly wanting to implement, meanwhile implementing it themselves while pretending to champion the poor. If they were not able to dominate the media, there would be very few progressives.

On a tip from Wiggins.
