i think everyone should die at a certain age. 50 years should be enough to accomplish enough in life. i think a socialist movement to kill everyone above the age 50 would solve a lot of problems.

when i'm 50, i'll try to kill as many 50+ people before i turn 51.

I don't think we should do everything in our power, to spare no expense, to keep vegatative humans alive for an extra 50 years, etc.

So yeah this would kick life spent mostly within some sort of educational process as the prime unifying thing of one's life up from 1/4th of one's life to at least 2/5ths, and in the stronger professions would kick it to 3 or 4 fifths

No thx

while i understand the logic behind those figures, why should it take so long to come to one's prime in a profession? we are deeply hindering ourselves if we think it takes more than 20 years after education to become a leading professional or craftsman in a field. education shouldn't mean much nowadays anyway considering how much slower the education system is getting.

even if that means leaders in high positions will lose the opportunity to gain economic value to a business or location, the cost on society is just too high to continually make room for a population that spends the least in important industries while being the biggest spenders overall, especially in industries and innovations that do very little for the progression of society.

I'll shoot for 80 instead. Retirement for a solid 10+ years sounds like the old days, and I think having as much time as you do can influence you to help teach and influence the community and the future generations more than sending you and all you've learned away. You need time to pass on your work.

Social Security would be done away with. People would never be able to retire. Infringes on more rights than I can imagine.

The premise is stupid. There are not really that many population problems outside of the developing world in central America and Africa.

While I agree we generally keep people alive way past their time this would be a terrible way to do it. People can be perfectly healthy/productive past 80.

like the IRS, social security is a proven failure that the government will perhaps never let go of. americans and the rest of society can do without such programs. the only right i can think of being infringed upon is the right to life.

My dad is going to be 50 in a matter of years. He's a respected doctor and leads a healthy, active lifestyle. Basically he's got a lot of time left and will likely remain a physician for as many as 10 years after he turns 50. Why should we kill off someone who's still keeping our families healthy? And after he chooses to retire, doesn't he deserve to enjoy the rest of his life in retirement? He's saved lives. Why should we tell him at age 50 that his is no longer worth keeping?

I'm not going to take the time to make a list, but I'm sure there have been many great accomplishments by people over the age of 50.

And the sentimental arguments: Doesn't he deserve to see his youngest daughter marry and have children? This certainly won't happen before he turns 50. Doesn't he deserve the chance to do all the things he couldn't do because of his career, like spend weeks or months traveling the world? Isn't the fact that he has the knowledge and expertise to one day save the life of someone when no one else could enough reason to keep him alive? If so, how do we decide who's fit to live and who's fit to die?

Though it goes without saying I'll post it anyways. This is one monstrosity of an idea.

My dad's 66, passes off for around 40, is more healthy than most 40 year olds, is in very good fitness and keeps strong, not to mention contributes to society in many ways as well as being a respected musician.

There are many many people like him. Why exactly should they not have the opportunity to exist? Sure a lot of people stop working, but there are a lot of them who are still valued in society and do contribute, not to mention people have the right to live as long as they can and enjoy the rest of their lives in retirement as others have said. Not to mention people who take care of themselves, like my dad and other people, into old age would die right along with the people who don't take care of themselves who would've died at 50 or closely after anyway, which isn't fair at all. Basically, just a really dumb idea that would hurt the world a LOT more than it would help it.

OP didn't really think this one through.

old people consume and confine too much resources as they cloud their judgment with old ideas. we are being held back by their inability to not give up their ideals for their way of living. what you see as a contribution made by your father is a compromise for those meaningless ideals. the fact that you can do nothing other than defend his existence shows how weak he has made you. younger generations will continue to embody this weakness if old standards will continue to dominate societal progressions.

and no, i did think this through. in my business law and ethics course, i studied many instances of corporate fraud and economic downturn and i discovered something: these were all driven by older people who fed off the abilities and innovations of younger people. in every case, the misconception that older people were more wise and experienced is what led into a state of crisis. old people aren't doing anything for us as they build economic value, limit that value to specialized criteria and provide resources from that value only to capsules that support that specialized criteria. if the business segment of that specialized criteria fails, that economic value is lost. and that is what continues to happen today and it is truly hindering us, as the younger generations, from approaching the world on an even ground.

lol, rampant ageism and confirmation bias

Your findings confirm problems with capitalism, not with old people. You say it yourself; the misconception that older people were more wise is the problem, but your FURTHER findings commit the same problem in the other direction - you implicitly deem the older ones less worthy of life by deeming them worth killing
