Trading Healthcare for Oil Wars

If you need surgery to be healthy, or to live, you’ve gotta lose weight or quit smoking. If not, the government has decreed that you must continue to suffer, or die. At least, that’s the news if you slice off the top layer of bullshit.

You have to earn the right to life in the British Empire.

This is a new day for our people, the beginning of a new, fascist era.

God save the queen.

The country is spending massively on nonsense, as most are. The government has decided, unsurprisingly, that their wars are more important than our lives. Which, should leave you questioning what the point of the wars is in that case, if not to protect the British people. They reasoned that they couldn’t increase taxes without causing instability, or just plain didn’t care about all the Britons who will now suffer and die. They, consequently, have chosen who will live and who will die, not permitting everyone to live and to be free of suffering, because either they’re greedy or just don’t care.

Any justifications they can provide have questionable scientific merit. Norway, in defense of similar laws, claims that smokers who receive heart bypass surgery will be clogged up again just months later. Which, not only should sound like bullshit to you if you have a brain, but has been documented by studies to in fact be bullshit.

If you’re going to force people to pay for medical insurance which they’re not allowed to use for surgery, but then allow others to use it for surgery, that’s obviously discrimination on the very same level as racial or religious discrimination. You’re too fat, so we’ve decided you must die. What country can you best think of which thought that way historically? Nazi Germany, their eugenics and so forth.

First they came for the fat people , and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t fat. Then they came for the smokers, and I didn’t speak out because I didn’t smoke. Then they came for me, and there was nobody left to speak for me.

About Luke Smith

I travel around and write about it. When I'm not travelling around, I write about whatever seems meaningful to me at the time; these are usually meditations on current events, finding ways to survive the crushing existential grind of modern civilisation or vaguely philosophical musings.

    • Er…dude…what? I’m just using wordpress. What’s the deal with the random comments, homie? I don’t know what I’m doing here half the time, don’t ask me stuff, ask someone who knows. How’d you even find this place? You seem to be looking solely for web hosting advice and I must say, a wordpress dedicated to travelling the British Isles really ain’t gonna help you a whole lot. If you want advice on travelling the Highlands, we can talk.
