Social Liberal Union Regional Message Board
A person's job in a capitalist society is whatever is agreed between the employer and the employee. If I so wish (and if the person I'm employing agrees), I can hire a plumber to dismantle my drainage system, employ a cook to pour salt into my soup, or pay a cleaner to sweep dust onto the floor. Why should I then not be able to, if I so wish, ask a doctor to ensure I stop living?
What I choose to do with my life is nobody's business but my own. If anything, I think euthanasia should be available even for fully healthy people.
Furthermore, properly treating a patient in critical condition is expensive. If patients that do not wish to live are not kept alive, does that not free up resources for the treatment of those patients that do wish to live? Even if the cost of euthanasia is so great as to compromise other medical ventures (which it isn't), a person's right to his or her life is such a fundamental right that it should overrule all but the most extreme of utilitarian concerns.
If that's the case, don't vote for the Founder for any elected office.
Also, why did you resign from the WA? Not angry or anything, just wondering.
I am more disposed to paternalism, but as for euthanasia, I see it as a matter of dignity and what you say is right on the spot.
The Founder doesn't actually have any power. It is more of a ceremonial role. The ability and act of appointing officers is really just an administrative mechanism, an OOC act if you like. Please be assured that I am fully committed to the democracy of this region and take great care to never appear to interfere with this. However, as Courelli pointed out, having an active Founder does bring advantages in terms of regional security, as has previously been demonstrated. I will only exercise my administrative abilities if properly instructed by a member of the cabinet, or in an emergency, in accordance with the constitution.
I'm grateful to the region for giving me the ability to stand for elected office. If anything, this should serve as reinforcement of the fact that I am just a regular member nation here. At least in terms of power. Although I do humbly recognise that, in a ceremonial sense, I am significant part of the region :)
Sorry, just remembered how annoying the WA was, especially when some other nations put up a ridiculous resolution and it actually gets through.
What? So healthy people, with no mental illness, no horrific, incurable illness can just go "yeah, I'm having a bad day, don't particularly feel like living, just going to end it"
With all due respect, are you out of your mind? Are you really that kind of person that sets such a low value on life?
Actually, wages are determined by the supply and demand of workforce. When an industry grows, the workforce makes more money due to its increased demand. That also grants them more leverage over their employers.
It doesn't matter what the value of a life is. Maybe it's valuable, maybe it's not. That is completely irrelevant to the situation.
The important thing is that my life is mine. Consequently I should be able to do as I please with it, including getting rid of it for any reason, or maybe no reason at all.
This is why I'm a social democrat, heh. Labour is entitled to all that it creates.
