Everyone dies, but some people just die sooner. Sorry. Survival of the fittest. Some major problems already addressed by others on the blog include global warming, over-population, poverty and unemployment. We as humans created the problems we are forced to live in, so why not we solve the problem as well? One hot debate happening right now is the issue of healthcare. Everyone wants free health care, but what would happen if there was no health care?
My modest proposal: ELIMINATE HEALTH CARE! At least some forms of it. Eliminating health care would solve the problems previously listed. Seriously. If we eliminate some forms of health insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, many people would die if they become sick. They wouldn’t be able to afford the expensive medicines, surgeries and procedures necessary to keep them alive. Instead of putting off the inevitable, people would just die sooner. With less people living and breathing on Earth, there would be less respiration in the air and thus according to Brooke’s blog, reducing the effects of global warming. Additionally, with less people on the planet, fewer cars would be driven and there wouldn’t be as many people driving to and from doctor’s appointments, reducing the carbon monoxide levels put into atmosphere.
Eliminating health care would also solve overpopulation, so we would have fewer people to worry about feeding, housing and educating. Poverty and unemployment wouldn’t be as much of an issue, since only the strong, elite and wealthy would survive. Also even if you are wealthy but elderly, you might die earlier so you can pass along your inheritance to your children and grandchildren earlier so they have more opportunities to either go to college and get an education, or start investing the money earlier to make a better living for themselves.
This is sort of a Darwinian solution, with our existence going back to being “survival of the fittest.” Only those who have any value to our society would live to an older age, providing for a stronger and more stable economy. Additionally, without receiving medical help from healthcare, it would appear that only those who have strong immune systems would survive. Only the strong would live on. Eventually, this would lead to a continuation of a strong set of genes that will be carried on throughout the years. The age of the average human life would increase because people wouldn’t be dying of disease until a later time. We would have stronger immune systems able to fight off diseases that we would encounter. Eventually, this all leads to making a stronger human race. Sounds pretty good to me.
