That is true. It is a survival of the fittest thing. The sick, the old and the poor get left behind. I only have one problem with it. Most people don't want to be a drain on the world. But damn their hide they will ask you to live when there is nothing left to live for. There should be places where old farts like me turn themselves in to be put down with as much dignity as your local animal clinic puts down animals. That would save huge amounts of money. No Social Security or Medicare and Medicaid for those people.
You bring up the point on end-of-life costs, but that is a whole other issue with a whole other moral aspect. Don't be so depressed though, cheer up and stay optimistic
