from The American Thinker:
Ezekiel Emanuel is one of the architects of Obamacare and the head of the Clinical Bioethics Department at the National Institutes of Health, and he thinks 75 years is about all a human lifespan should be. In an article titled, Why I hope to die at 75,” he lays out his thinking. Those of us who cling to life are mistaken:
Americans seem to be obsessed with exercising, doing mental puzzles, consuming various juice and protein concoctions, sticking to strict diets, and popping vitamins and supplements, all in a valiant effort to cheat death and prolong life as long as possible. This has become so pervasive that it now defines a cultural type: what I call the American immortal. I reject this aspiration. I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive. For many reasons, 75 is a pretty good age to aim to stop.
Ben Shapiro, writing at Breitbart, points out that Emanuel’s parents are already beyond the years Zeke would allot them. Oops!
