The Elderly

April 24, 2015 9:00 am

The elderly are parasites to society, a huge burden on us all & should be driven to extinction.

Simply put, they need to make themselves more productive instead of lounging around at home all day sitting in their rocking chairs whilst remincing their past & watching shows like ‘flog it’.

There is no room for frail & fragile individuals in a world which is run by the principle of ‘survival of the fittest’ at its very core. I say stop letting them depend on everybody else and let them depend on themselves. That way natural selection will take its course and wipe out these needful peasants from the face of the planet.


Additionally, it is important to note that ‘pensions’ is just a nicer way of saying ‘benefits’ with less stigma attached. If they can utilise their hands to knit they can utilise their hands to pick up litter on the streets.  They want their pensions? They should work for their pensions.

Furthermore, the elderly should be automatically subjected to drug testing & human experiments because lets face it they are going to die anyway & for the sake of advances in medical technology we should make the most out of their final hours on earth.

And for those who constantly exclaim that the elderly have contributed over the years & deserve a rest… they can rest all they want once they are six feet under & in a box.

    This article is outrageous and I can’t firstly believe Moon Project published it. I dare say the author is in their 20’s/30’s? or has issues with an elderly member currently to cause such an insensitive and unintelligent explosion of thought. Unbelievable.

      Hi Nickie,

      Speaking on behalf of Moon Project – we also thought it was outrageous – but we pride ourselves on publishing opinions of all kinds so as to prevent any accusation of bias which seems to plague pretty much every media outlet these days.

      Rest assured though – NONE of us share the views of this article. I almost thought it might be some kind of strange satire….
