liv: cast iron sign showing etiolated couple drinking tea together (argument)

I'm not necessarily against euthanasia in principle, in the sense of assisted suicide for people who already have rapidly terminal illnesses. But given how much harm doctors already do to disabled people whether by witholding treatment or prescribing dangerous treatments, if they had the legal right to actually kill disabled patients it would be a massacre. Lots of my friends see the abstract ethical principle and think, yes, more autonomy good, people should have the right to die if they want to, but I can't back that kind of politics in the existing context.

I hadn't realized dreadful Pauline Hanson was still around. My condolences. Education disparities are exactly the sort of thing I'm thinking of; I think it's hugely unjust to say that the state will pay for education for physically and cognitively abled people only, because anyone else is too expensive. Whatever budget is going to be set, it needs to include providing the same level of facilities to all.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
