Seldom is heard more alarming God complex discussions about who has a greater right to life.  It’s cut from the same warp & weave as the public discussions heard surrounding when torture was “OK” during the Bush administration.

The takeaway is if you’re over a certain age, there’s little incentive to answer questions about your COVID-19 status/contacts since you’re already calculated as disposable and less entitled to life.  i.e. The medical establishment and the state are greasing the skids for the very souls most in need and at risk of dying.

Anytime people appoint themselves as arbiters of who lives and who dies, bias, discrimination,  and prejudice inevitably crop up.  What was the point of beating the Nazis only to become just like them?

The right to life is self evident.  Those who reckon they can parse that natural law with their own arrogant calculus and broken moral compass are delusional, far more dangerous than the virus itself.  It is better to be a mouse in a cat’s jaws than a patient in the hands of these self anointed demigods.
