PLEASE NOTE :
THIS IS A HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC.
THERE ARE ARGUMENTS IN FAVOUR OF EUTHANASIA AND ARGUMENTS AGAINST IT.
WE WILL SELECT RELEVANT LINK CLUSTERS.
WE WILL TRY TO GIVE AN OBJECTIVE VIEW.
WE ARE HOWEVER ALSO BOUND BY OUR POLICY STATEMENT (THIRD DIRECTIVE : PREVENTION OF MALIGNANT REPLICATION) .
WE WILL START WITH RISK FACTORS IN OUR TIMES.
SINCE EUTHANASIA IN THE NETHERLANDS SEEMS TO BE "TOP OF THE WORLD" WE WILL START WITH RISK FACTORS IN THE NETHERLANDS .
WE INSIST ON EMPHASIZING AT THIS STAGE THE FOLLOWING POINT :
TO STUDY MALIGNANT REPLICATION WE MUST STUDY WHAT HAPPENED ( e.g. IN A SPECIFIC COUNTRY) IN THE PAST.
THIS DOES IN NO WAY IMPLY THAT WHATEVER HAPPENED IN THAT PAST HAS ANY BEARING
ON ( e.g. THAT COUNTRY IN) THE PRESENT.
FOR OUR PRESENT STUDY THIS NOTABLY APPLIES TO OUR
HONORED AND BELOVED GERMAN NEIGHBOURS .
WE ARE ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED THAT CONTEMPORARY GERMANY IS THE COUNTRY MOST OUTSPOKENLY AGAINST ANYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH PRINCIPLES THAT ARE EVEN REMOTELY REMINISCENT OF GERMAN HISTORY IN THE DAYS OF 1935/45 .
OUR OPINION IS THAT GERMANY IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ORIGINS OF OUR HUMAN CIVILIZATION, BOTH SCIENTIFICALLY, TECHNICALLY, IN THE WORLD OF ARTS AND IN MANY OTHER AREA'S .
ONE ONLY HAS TO CONSIDER THE RANKS OF FAMOUS GERMANS - SUCH AS WERNER VON BRAUN - WERNER VON BRECHT - MAX BORN - JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE - WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART AND ALBERT SCHWEITZER - TO NAME BUT A FEW .
PERHAPS A POSSIBILITY COULD BE THAT THERE IS - IF ONLY RARELY - SOME
TRUTH IN THE DUTCH SAYING :
HOE GROTER GEEST HOE GROTER BEEST
(MEANING : THE GREATER THE MIND THE "GREATER" THE BEAST) .
THIS MAY HAVE APPLIED TO SOME PEOPLE IN 1935/'45 AS IT MAY APPLY TO OTHER CREATURES, OTHER NATIONS NOW AND IN FUTURE TIMES . . .
WE RESPECTFULLY BEG YOU TO REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU ACTIVATE THE LINK BELOW . . .
NOW IT BEGINS . . .

ONE PROBLEM WITH EUTHANASIA IS THAT IT IS ONLY A WORD . . . AND . . . AS MANY OF US KNOW . . . WORDS CAN EASILY BE USED . . .
AND THEY CAN EASILY BE MISUSED . . . TO MEAN THE OPPOSITE . . .
EUTHANASIA IS NOT THE SAME AS MURDER . . . THE WORD SOUNDS LIKE A WORD WITH A NIMBUS . . . BASICALLY A THING OF BEAUTY . . .
LITERALLY MEANING : GOOD DEATH . . . A PROCEDURE WITH WHICH UNBEARABLE PAIN . . . WITHOUT FORESEEABLE END . . .
ETERNAL HELL . . .
CAN BE TRANSFORMED INTO . . . ETERNAL . . . PAINLESS . . . JOY . . . RESTING IN PEACE . . . HEAVEN IN ETERNITY . . .
THIS IS THE BASIS OF THE STANDARD PRO-EUTHANASIA SALES TALK . . . AND . . . AS IS THE CASE WITH ALL GOOD SALES TALK . . .
THERE MUST BE AN ELEMENT OF TRUTH IN IT . . .
THUS . . .THE USUAL (PRO) EUTHANASIA DOCTRINE . . . CONTAINS PICTURES OR FILMS . . . OF BEAUTIFUL BABIES OR YOUNG CHILDREN . . .
SUFFERING TERRIBLY . . . SUFFOCATING . . . WITH INCURABLE DISEASES . . . ACCOMPANIED BY IMPRESSIVE SLOGANS . . .
LIKE :LES HÉROS SONT FATIGUÉ . . .
OR WE SEE ELDERLY PEOPLE . . . WITH SIMILAR CONDITIONS . . . PACKED IN AWFUL NURSING HOMES . . . WITH NEVER ANY PRIVACY . . .
SOILING THEMSELVES . . . OR . . . WITH REDUCED CONSCIOUSNESS . . . EVEN MASTURBATING (ON TV!) . . . OR BEING INTERVIEWED . . .
JUST MUMBLING . . . HAS IT NOT BEEN ENOUGH . . . ?
WHEN DURING THE . . . NUREMBERG DOCTORS TRIALS . . . A DEATH CAMP DOCTOR WAS ASKED . . . WHY SHE GAVE THAT LETHAL INJECTION . . .SHE SAID . . . (TRYING TO BE CONVINCING) . . . WEIL SIE IN DER AGONY WAHREN !
OF COURSE THE INMATES . . . SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN . . . MANIPULATED . . . IN THAT AGONIZING POSITION IN THE FIRST PLACE !
PERHAPS IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE
EUTHANASIA PROGRAM ( AFTER ACTIVATING THIS HYPERLINK - CLICK ON THE PHOTOGRAPH ! ! )
(EUTHANASIE PROGRAMME) ( = TEXT ONLY )
IN THE GOOD OLD FORTIES WAS WHAT STARTED IT ALL!!
ONE PROBLEM OF THE NEW ERA COULD BE . . . OR BECOME . . . THAT OUR WAR GAME COMPUTERS . . . WILL SHOW . . .
THAT ALL OUR (STATE) DEFICITS . . . WILL BE SOLVED . . . WHEN WE
"FACILITATE". . . THE "PROMOTION". . . OF THE . . . PENSIONERS . . .
A NEW . . . COMPUTER - JUGEND . . . IS ALL WE NEED !
IN SOME COUNTRIES . . . THE NEW MEDICAL DOCTRINE . . . SEEMS TO BE . . . A PATIENT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE TREATED . . .
WITH TREATMENTS . . . HE DOES NOT ASK FOR . . . WELL . . . THAT SOUNDS LOGICAL . . . ONLY . . . NOT ALL PATIENTS . . .
ARE MEDICAL DOCTORS . . . MANY PATIENTS MAY NOT KNOW . . . ALL THE QUESTIONS . . .
OFF COURSE IT MAY NOT BE NECESSARY . . . TO START . . . LARGE SCALE TOTAL POPULATION PREVENTIVE CANCER CHECKS . . .
(WITH YEARLY SIGMOIDOSCOPY . . . AFTER THE AGE OF SIXTEEN) . . . THIS MAY BE A LUXURY . . . NOT EVERY NATION CAN AFFORD . . .
BUT NOT SUGGESTING THIS TO A SIXTY YEAR OLD . . . WASTING BLOOD . . . JUST BECAUSE HE DOES NOT . . . ASK FOR IT . . .
IS NOT REALLY THE SAME . . .
ONE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT MANY COUNTRIES ARE NOW FACED WITH FRIGHTFULLY FAMILIAR CONDITIONS AS IN THE YEARS 1935-'45 :
LARGE SCALE UNEMPLOYMENT WITH VERY POOR PROSPECTS FOR THE "SLIGHTLY WOUNDED" TWENTY PLUS GROUP . . .
A LARGE AND INCREASING NUMBER OF HOMELESS . . .
|THERE IS HOWEVER ONE MOST FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE .
THE "GOOD OLD DAYS" OF 1935-45 ARE NOW MORE THEN HALF A CENTURY BEHIND US AND DURING THIS COMPARATIVELY SHORT TIME - AS A RESULT OF THE EXPLOSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY- HUMANITY HAS MADE MORE PROGRESS THEN IN ANY COMPARABLE PERIOD IN PLANETARY HISTORY .
AND THIS HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN . . .
TO CONSIDER THE RELATION OF THIS WITH EUTHANASIA WE WILL GIVE A SHORT SUMMING UP OF THESE EFFECTS IN DYNAMIC INTERACTION .
COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY HAS EXPLOSIVELY CHANGED HUMAN INTERACTION ON A GLOBAL LEVEL INTO INSTANTANEOUS (OFTEN INTERACTIVE) AUDIOVISUAL COMMUNICATION AND PRACTICALLY INSTANTANEOUS PHYSICAL COMMUNICATION WITH A DIRECTLY RELATED INSTANT CULTURAL DIFFUSION ON A GLOBAL SCALE .
THIS HAS NOW LED TO THE GLOBAL DIFFUSION OF CAPITALISM AS THE DOMINANT ECONOMICAL SYSTEM WITH ALL THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE COMPONENTS THAT ULTIMATELY DETERMINE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF ALL SYSTEMS WETHER ORGANIC OR INORGANIC , MICRO- OR MACROCOSMIC .
THE FIRST RULE OF CAPITALISM IS THE MAINTAIN PROFIT PRINCIPLE AND THIS WOULD ALSO INCLUDE THE REDUCTION OF LIFE FORMS (e.g. LOCUST) WHICH WOULD BE CONSIDERED INCOMPATIBLE WITH IT .
IN THE CASE OF HUMAN LIFE THIS BRINGS US AUTOMATICALLY TO EUTHANASIA AS ONE SIGNIFICANT METHOD FOR THIS .
ONE TECHNICAL DETAIL IS THAT MOST HUMANS HAVE A CONSCIENCE WHICH , AS ONE HOMEOSTATIC COMPONENT, IS BASICALLY CONDITIONED TO PROTECT HUMAN LIFE .
HOWEVER, NEARLY ALL SPECIALISTS KNOW THAT CONSCIENCE CAN EASILY BE RECONDITIONED ONE EXAMPLE BEING THE EUTHANASIA PROGRAM AND ITS FINAL SOLUTION IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS JUST HALF A CENTURY AGO .
THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM WE THANK TO A LARGE EXTEND TO THE PROPAGANDA MINISTERIUM WHICH COMPARED TO COMPARABLE SYSTEMS IN OUR NEW ERA IS LIKE COMPARING A LAME HORSE WITH THE LATEST SUPERSONIC JET WHICH CAN CIRCLE THE GLOBE IN LESS THEN 2 HOURS . . .
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WHEN AN ECONOMICAL SYSTEM IS DOMINANT IT WILL USUALLY ULTIMATELY DOMINATE MAINSTREAM CULTURE ON ALL FIRST EXECUTIVE LEVELS INCLUDING POLITICAL , CORPORATE , RELIGIOUS , LEGAL , SCIENTIFIC AND MEDICAL SYSTEMS IN DYNAMIC INTERACTION .
DEPENDING ON THE RELEVANT SYSTEMS IMAGE AND ROLE IN SOCIETY THIS PROCESS MAY REQUIRE SPECIFIC FORMS OF COMMUNICATION -WITH STRAIGHTFORWARD CITIZENS- LIKE ART FORMS (MOVIES , OPERA AND OPERETTA) WEBS OF IMPONDERABLE CONTRACTS AND LEGAL RULINGS AND ADAPTED RELIGIOUS MEDICAL/ETHICAL AND SCIENTIFIC INTERPRETATIONS ALL WITH A SINGLE GOAL IN COMMON : INCREASE OF PROFIT .
AN EXAMPLE OF THE EFFECT OF DYNAMIC INTERACTION OF SUBSYSTEMS ON EUTHANASIA IS THE INTERACTION OF MEDICAL INSURANCE COMPANIES WITH MEDICAL PRACTICE - POLITICS AND LEGAL SYSTEMS .
MEDICAL INSURANCE COMPANIES MAY INCORPORATE SYSTEMS THAT COULD REWARD MEDICAL GENERAL PRACTITIONERS WITH A LOW COST PROFILE . THIS WOULD MEAN CHEAPER AND FEWER PRESCRIPTIONS AND FEWER REFERRALS TO SPECIALISTS AND HOSPITALS. IT WOULD ALSO CREATE A DIVIDE AND RULE MODEL FOR THESE COMPANIES , VERSUS GENERAL PRACTITIONERS AND SPECIALIST/HOSPITALS .
ON THE SCIENTIFIC LEVEL IT COULD MEAN POLITICALLY ADAPTED INTERPRETATION OF SCIENTIFIC RESULTS, e.g. REGARDING THE EFFECT OF NOISE ON PUBLIC HEALTH .
THE ULTIMATE RESULT OF THE "LOCUST MODEL" WOULD OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO BE MASSIVE LOCUST REDUCTION IN "ADC MODE" .
IN THE CASE OF HUMAN SYSTEMS 1935/'45 MODE EUTHANASIA COULD BE ONE OPTION .
FORTUNATELY WE NOW LIVE IN AN ERA WHERE HUMANITY IS GUIDED BY BENIGN SHEPHERDS AND THERE IS NO DOUBT IN OUR MINDS THAT THEY WILL VIGOROUSLY TRY TO PREVENT ANY CHANCE OF MALIGNANT REPLICATION .
OUR WRITINGS ON THE SUBJECT ARE MERELY A HUMBLE EFFORT ON A MICRO-COSMIC SCALE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR INCREDIBLY COMPLEX TASK OF HERDING HUMANITY TOWARDS A FUTURE WHERE OUR SPECIES HAS A CHANCE TO SURVIVE IN HONOR AND DIGNITY . . . BASED ON INDIVIDUAL CONSCIENCE AND ULTIMATELY ON THE CONSCIENCE OF THE GLOBAL MIND . . .
DISCUSSION , AND SUMMARIZING SOME ASPECTS OF EUTHANASIA UNDER GLOBALIZATION.
10 DEC 2004 13.50 © J. P. Krol copyright.
Explosive development of computer technology has influenced every aspect of planetary life, notably aviation (e.g. -air- transport) , instant interactive audio-visual global communication (to microcosmic level) also including vastly superior propaganda psychology and propaganda technology .
This has resulted in an unprecedented acceleration of (mainstream) cultural diffusion on a planetary scale with Capitalism -only profit counts- now being the dominant ideology factually replacing all other (de facto totalitarian) ideologies such as communism and socialism .
One very likely moral development of this will be the GATTACA MODEL which may very well lead to incorporation of the LOCUST MODEL as a logical consequence with LARGE SCALE EUTHANASIA as a (benign . . .) operational mode .
One result of the above phenomena (in dynamic interaction) may be a massive craving for EUTHANASIA by a very large number of humans living today .
1. Massive unemployment - 2. Home removal - 3. Harsh labor - 4. Reservations / camps / prisons / - 5. Increasingly draconian justice .
Including many many positive aspects of capitalism (consider the internet - which is why you can read this message ! - ) we must also consider many serious negative aspects such as :
Capitalism adapted legislation involves basic changes in labor contracts leading to very short contract termination notice and replacement of employees with (imported) child/teenage labor at (often less then) minimum wage .
Companies can also easily be dissolved (easy riddance of total workforce) or moved to cheaper countries anywhere on the planet .
Additionally ever increasing computerized automation of mechanical systems of all sizes will eventually reduce the need for human labor at an astronomical rate .
It could be argued that man must simply better learn to prepare for "old age" (sensible investments , pension funds , real estate). It must only be considered that very considerable experience has now become available with stock marked crashes , also affecting pension funds and real estate as a result of mortgages becoming unpayable as a result of all the factors just mentioned above in vicious dynamic interaction .
It is only logical that the real estate market , like all healthy markets, must work with marketing strategies to make a profit. Only with real estate , high profile sales-talk provoked over enthusiastic buying often leads to ending up in campers, tents or worse . This is not the same as losing a wide-screen TV , a Dolby 3 dimensional sound system or even a car . . . In many countries this is now happening on a large scale .
Additionally more then 75% of all households in many European cities live in rental homes (Amsterdam, Berlin, Bratislava, Hamburg, Krakow, München, Paris, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Warschau - see graph for total picture in Europe) . One aspect of capitalism is "liberalizing rents". In many countries (e.g. in Europe) rent price protection has been a basic right for many many decades , closely related to the right to life .
Liberalizing rents simply means this right is abolished often resulting in skyrocketing rents . Citizens are suddenly faced with the incredibly stressful reality of having to abandon the home and the neighborhood where they grew up , have their friends and hoped to enjoy a well earned peaceful second half of life . Now they have to leave all this behind facing the reality of having to move, again and again whenever rents rise, to remote places which may eventually be reservations when as a result of massive unemployment this remains the only option (http://www.globalmind.info/exec_summaries_8.html) .
As a result of massive unemployment labor conditions will obviously deteriorate rapidly to a critical level . When there is very little work , you may have to settle for anything you can get .
Reservations, camps , prisons .
These systems merely form a temporal sequence . Conditions in reservations usually deteriorate when they become unprofitable . Then the time has come to put more and more people in them and put fences and barbed wire around . This is the lesson of history . Finally this will lead to many people sharing a room .
The net result of the points mentioned above will often be prisons . As life becomes increasingly unbearable people may start to rebel which also results in crime ultimately leading to draconian justice.
One small problem of this development is that it does not incorporate a guarantee that "privileged class" members including their loved ones (e.g. children, grandchildren) can maintain their "privileged" status indefinitely . Then what . . .
Well promoted . . . idealized . . . euthanasia . . . weil sie in der Agony wahren . . .?
It is hypothised that contemporary human organisms including their shepherds may want to ask themselves only this :"Do we really want to go into history as the living of the era that produced and promoted such a civilization . . .?"
Sorry to be such a bore . . .
