You work your whole life only to risk being mistreated during your senior years...what's that all about?
We live in a disposable society.
Hmmm... I can't really agree completely on this basing on my life experience. I see way more disrespect coming from elders than directed at them.
Really?! I spent time visiting a friend of the family in a Senior's home and they all seem to have family that never visits.
Everyone is so happy and clutching at me when I talk with them...
Alone, forlorn and neglected. That's what happens here.
Yeah, that's bad.
so long as government is out of the equation, they always screw things up
In India they take their elderly to the game preserve to be attacked by a tiger. Then they drag the body back to the farm and collect compensation from the government. It pays better than just plain welfare. https://fee.org/articles/indias...welfare-trend/
