The 1973 movie Soylent Green posits a catastrophically polluted and over-populated future society in which suicide is not only legal but encouraged and facilitated by the state. New York City in 2022 (according to this fictional timeline), are institutions where people can end their lives peacefully and beautifully. In the full context of the movie’s storyline, the thanatorium turns out to be a sinister place because – spoiler – the government is secretly recycling humans as food. Those final moments of Edward G. Robinson’s character, Sol Roth can be found on Youtube.
This scene is afforded a special poignancy by the fact that Robinson was nearing the end of his own life and died two weeks after filming Soylent Green. If you’re interested in the topic of fictional “thanatorium” you can even find an essay on the subject published by libtard philosophy Professor Matthew Burstein entitled “The Thanatoria of Soylent Green: On Reconciling the Good Life with the Good Death,” which appears in the anthology Bioethics at the Movies (2009), but, of course, no one would have ever imagined that it would become a reality one day, not in New York City, but Satanic socialist Canada.
Since last year, Canadian law has allowed both the rich as well as the poor to kill themselves if they are too poor to continue living with dignity. The ever-generous Canadian state in the hands of Fidel Castro’s illegitimate son, Justin will even pay for their deaths. However, what they will not do is spend money to allow them to live instead.
As with most slippery slopes, it all began with a strongly worded denial that it exists. In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada reversed 22 years of its jurisprudence by striking down the country’s ban on assisted suicide as unconstitutional, blithely dismissing fears that the ruling would ‘initiate a descent down a slippery slope into homicide’ against the vulnerable as founded on ‘anecdotal examples’. The next year, Parliament duly enacted legislation allowing euthanasia, but only for those who suffer from a terminal illness whose natural death was ‘reasonably foreseeable’.
Despite the government’s insistence that assisted suicide is about individual autonomy, it has also kept an eye on the fiscal advantages, and who knows if one day those bodies will end up recycled in one of Bill Gates’s “impossible burgers” that are made of genetically engineered synthetic meat.
As I wrote back in December 2019 in Volume 4 of my Confessions, the Jesuits support euthanasia especially in the libtard Archdiocese of Seattle, where the Jesuit Order faced a lot of criticism after a local man received a formal Catholic blessing after Mass shortly before committing medically assisted suicide in May 2019. However, in Canada, it only took five years for the proverbial slope to come into view when the Canadian parliament enacted Bill C-7, a sweeping euthanasia law that repealed the ‘reasonably foreseeable’ requirement – and the requirement that the condition should be ‘terminal’. Now, as long as someone is suffering from an illness or disability which ‘cannot be relieved under conditions that you consider acceptable’, they can take advantage of what is now known euphemistically as ‘medical assistance in dying’ (MAID for short) for free. Soon enough, Canadians from across the country discovered that although they would otherwise prefer to live, they were too poor to improve their conditions. Not coincidentally, Canada has some of the lowest social care spending of any industrialized country, palliative care is only accessible to a minority, and waiting times in the public healthcare sector can be unbearable, to the point where the same Supreme Court which legalized euthanasia declared those waiting times to be a violation of the right to life back in 2005.
Many in the healthcare sector came to the same conclusion. Even before Bill C-7 was enacted, reports of abuse were rife. A man with a neurodegenerative disease testified to Parliament that nurses and a medical ethicist at a hospital tried to coerce him into killing himself by threatening to bankrupt him with extra costs or by kicking him out of the hospital, and by withholding water from him for 20 days. Virtually every disability rights group in the country opposed the new law. To no effect: for once, the government found it convenient to ignore these otherwise impeccably progressive groups.
Since then, things have only gotten worse. A woman in Ontario was forced into euthanasia because her housing benefits did not allow her to get better housing that didn’t aggravate her crippling allergies. Another disabled woman applied to die because she ‘simply cannot afford to keep on living’. Another sought euthanasia because Covid-related debt left her unable to pay for the treatment which kept her chronic pain bearable – under the present government, disabled Canadians got $600 in additional financial assistance during Covid; university students got $5,000.
When the family of a 35-year-old disabled man who resorted to euthanasia arrived at the care home where he lived, they encountered ‘urine on the floor… spots where there was feces on the floor… spots where your feet were just sticking. Like, if you stood at his bedside and when you went to walk away, your foot was literally stuck.’ According to the Canadian government, the assisted suicide law is about ‘prioritizing the individual autonomy of Canadians’; one may wonder how much autonomy a disabled man lying in his own filth had in weighing death over life.
Despite the Canadian government’s insistence that assisted suicide is all about individual autonomy, it has also kept an eye on its fiscal advantages. Even before Bill C-7 entered into force, the country’s Parliamentary Budget Officer published a report about the cost savings it would create: whereas the old MAID regime saved $86.9 million per year – a ‘net cost reduction’, in the sterile words of the report – Bill C-7 would create additional net savings of $62 million per year. Healthcare, particularly for those suffering from chronic conditions, is expensive; but assisted suicide only costs the taxpayer $2,327 per ‘case’. And, of course, those who must rely wholly on government-provided Medicare pose a far greater burden on the exchequer than those who have savings or private insurance.
And yet Canada’s lavishly subsidized media, with some honorable exceptions, has expressed little curiosity about the open social murder of citizens in one of the world’s wealthiest countries. Perhaps, like many doctors, journalists are afraid of being accused of being ‘unprogressive’ for questioning the new culture of death, a fatal accusation in polite circles. Canada’s public broadcaster, which in 2020 reassured Canadians that there was ‘no link between poverty, choosing medically assisted death’, has had little to say about any of the subsequent developments.
Next year, the floodgates will open even further when those suffering from mental illness – another disproportionately poor group – become eligible for assisted suicide, although enthusiastic doctors and nurses have already pre-empted the law. There is already talk of allowing ‘mature minors’ access to euthanasia too – just think of the lifetime savings. But remember you saw it first in the film Soylent Green, and we all know what happened in the last scene as the protagonist NYPD detective Frank Thorn ( Charlton Heston), is tended to by paramedics, he urges Lt. Hatcher to spread the truth he has discovered, and initiate proceedings against the company. While being taken away, Thorn shouts out to the surrounding crowd, “Soylent Green is people!”
