The Ageist-Deathist paradigm is domain assumption for enormous profit.
Maggie Scarf (September Songs: The Good News About Marriage in the Later Years, 2008) wrote …
“Another Hallmark card shows a young woman saying, ‘Heard you turned 60.’ The inside text, however, reads, ‘I said, “HEARD YOU TURNED 60.”‘ In other words, if you’ve reached the age of sixty, you are already hard of hearing. Even a fortieth birthday card bears the opening line, ‘You’re 40 now, so embrace it, Love it, Love It!’ Inside, however, it says, ‘Now sit down. Breathe into a paper bag. Deep breaths. You’ll be okay.’ The relentless communication is always Aging Is Decay and Death.”
Programmed obsolescence is a lucrative fiction of the Frankenscience thanatophiles and bureautechnocrats responsible for medical gigantification and its attendant proliferation of toxic materia medica.
(Thanatophile: Person fascinated by death and death-related subjects.)
Biological gerontology has been blitzkrieged by sociological gerontology, a mealy-mouthed moniker for the pro-death brand of gerontology that asks the question …
“Where the hell do we stash these millions of worn-out, wrinkled-up, shriveled-up, dehydrated, decrepit old fogies, and who’s going to foot the bill for all these senile and debilitated old farts anyway?”
Author Ivan Illich noted …
“Death is the ultimate form of consumer resistance.”
There’s a bonanza of big bucks to be reaped in the mortuary and death insurance businesses – “womb to tomb” Nanny State health care “management.”
(Death insurance is euphemistically marketed as “life” insurance.)
The Orwellian, Malthusian, and Club of Rome social-engineering bio-Luddites are getting their share of the pelf by shepherding the mindless masses into embracing such anti-life concepts as “assisted suicide” and such pharmacological innovations as the “death control pill.”
These alphabet-agency social engineering bureautechnocrats hand-wring about how it makes “pragmatic economic sense” to eliminate society’s onerous burden of “old” and “unproductive” people.
Soylent Green, anyone?
The New World Economic Order, incorporated to a Fare-Thee-Well Superopoly, is fast becoming a transnational “granny dumping” juggernaut managed by dehumanized “concerned caregivers.”
These “concerned caregivers” are the picadors and micromanagers of our Guardian Society’s age-stratification system.
They effervesce with politically-correct euphemisms for age-set euthanesia – “assisted suicide” and “death with dignity.”
Futurist FM-2030 decreed …
“In our times the only dignity is in mobilizing intelligently to overcome aging and death.”
The Nazi euphemism for euthanesia was “disinfection.”
To a Deathist-contaminated New Age bubblehead with a serious case of “ascended master floating on ethereal moonbeams” syndrome, “death with dignity” is called “assisting one’s transformation into spirit.”
(Deepak Chopra’s Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old, 1997, is the antidote to this Piscean Age mindset.)
For do-it-yourselfers who prefer an individualistic suicide, the euphemism is “self-deliverance.”
An AIDS activist can even participate in a “Die-In.”
(That’s substituting the Winter of Our Discontent for the “Love-Ins” of the Summer of Love.)
A “neomort” is a caregiving service professional’s politically correct word for a terminally ill patient.
“Saving lives” is morbidized to “mediating mortality” by physicians.
School programs such as “Death and Dying” – nicknamed “Death Education” – require children to write their own obituaries and describe their preferred method of dying.
Ageism and Deathism are cultural assumptions and linear concepts of SCARCITY.
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) called Deathism the “Living to Die attitude.”
Biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey calls it the “pro-death trance.”
Deathist memes have been over-running the Ideosphere for a long time.
(Memeticists call the Ideosphere the “entire memetic ecology.”)
“Let death be your advisor” is sucky New Age advice to bewitched robo-sapien livestock.
Case In Point: Ravindra Kumar & Jytte Kumar Larson (The Kundalini Book of Living and Dying: Gateways to Higher Consciousness, 2004) wrote …
“The eminent Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung said that it is psychologically beneficial to have death as a goal toward which we strive. Mozart called death the key to unlocking the door to true happiness. Shakespeare wrote that when you are prepared for death, life is sweeter. The French philosopher Michel de Montaigne said ‘to practice death is to practice freedom.'”
“Let death be your advisor” is “stay off your own two feet and allow us to micromanage your pathetically inconsequential life from the cradle to the grave” Deathist disinformation.
It’s the “we’ve got you by the balls from neonate to neomort” Molochian prime directive of the mirthless automatons of colossal transoceanic corporate collectivities.
“Let LIFE be your advisor” is your highest choice.
Be the CEO of you. :)
Be BETTER instead of older.
Be better than well, “weller than well.”
If the coffin doesn’t fit, don’t wear it.
Gerontologist Bernard Strehler defined aging as …
… “essentially a result of the lack of sufficient selection pressure to foster the development of an immortal race.”
Forget the entropic AARP – the American Association of Retired People.
Join the negantropic AARP – the Atomic Association of Regenerative People.
It’s the AARP for Spacefaring Immortals.
Adano declared …
“I’m not a therapist – I’m a Longevity Lifestylist. I’m an associate – not a member – of Longevity Lifestyles. Immortality and resurrection are part of our program.”
