Do you think something like this would become extremely popular, if it did become true/become reality?
We will never know because it's never going to happen. Too many people benefit too much from the suffering of people who would jump at the chance to
painlessly and legally end it.
There would have to be a fundamental shift in the way people live, work and survive so huge I don't believe it's going to happen anytime in the next
100 years (if ever). Interdependence will keep this ghoulish freakshow going indefinitely.
Realistically, the only people they can really afford to allow to off themselves are the elderly once they get to the point to where they are more
trouble than they're worth. I can see that happening in the not distant future. I feel that there is already and unspoken process that goes on in
American hospitals whereby they pretty much give up on people at a certain point. Even if it's still possible for them to recover from whatever it is
and have a reasonable amount of time left, the doctors and administrators will take the least amount of saving action possible. They will not
troubleshoot and attack expensive problems the right way with old people unless they have money.
I can see it getting to the point to where they offer old sick people the option of euthanization. Because at that point, no one is profiting from
trying to keep them alive. And when an insurance company or the government ran insurance company (whichever you happen to have) is losing money
keeping you alive and they see no future prospects in profiting off of you, they're done with you. They write you off as a useless liability and they
will get you out of that hospital as cheaply as they can and do whatever they can to treat your future hospital visits in a "palliative" fashion. Even
if technically your health issues could be dealt with for the right amount of money. They're not willing to spend that much. So they will leave you to
your process to a slow, lingering death by means of no preventative action taken.
