I agree. This obsession with youth is false. It is a Llie of the first order which denies ageing, mortality and death.
I am not surprised at all at the Anti-Ageist Backlash.
OAPS having sex lives and jumping out of airplanes is about as far as you can get from the dangerous institutionalized ways OAPS are seen and the Regimes they have to endure from Homes that are supposed to provide a Service but instead are just Drug Pushing and Social Control Services.
I don’t want to go into a Home.
I am bloody right to think if I did Laptop is coming with and there’s sweet Fuck all you can do about it. I am not subject to some ignorant Teenager or some Big Business Fat Cat whose creaming his lifestyle off my suffering.
All this smacks of putting away as Society has done those who rebuke it’s Eternal Youth Delusion which creates stigma and hidden suffering.
Society insitutionalizes those it finds embarassing. Institutionalising is a form of social control, it is also a means of dealing with a social problem, Social problems need dealing with, or is it a disease an unparallelled opportunity for the Drug Companies to profit from the defenceless Vulnerable whilst it worships at the feet of Youth who will be discarded as soon as they reach the wrong age, when alledgely their faculties will be diminished and unusable. Fresh blood brought in on an annaul basis, the ‘old blood’ rejected.
No wonder I feel so strongly about this. There are probably innumerable flaws in my argument. Glover Saving Lives and Causing Deaths is in Not Yet Read Section in Library. Platos Injustice probably plays a part. But to reject humanity on basis of ugliness is downright crazy. Socialand Economic Costs are driven sky high. This all looks very utilitarian to me, driven by Big Business who cares only for itself regardless of costs inflicted on Government or Society who can always clean up after i’s messed itself (yet again)
If you like factor in drug damage (psychiatric patients are unlikely to viewed as aesthetic employment material when tardive dykenesia , impaired cognitive capacities are abiding characteristics). The Government and Big Business engage in cruel heartless delusions.
