Fair and balanced in your "analysis," like Fox News. I think this is an
issue worth discussing especially in the US where the far right is trying
to scare people away from even a watered-down health care system by talk of
"death panels." If you think the information I found is disinformation you
cd add to the discussion by correcting the disinformation but this appears
to be beneath you. Too bad. Here in the USSA, where only recently has
physician-assisted suicide been introduced, by prescription, it has
apparently not been terribly popular. My reaction to Martin's claim was
skepticism though off-list. The link I found portrayed this situation in
Holland in a way I thought uncharacteristic, so if there is a critique of
the use of this report, it wd be helpful if you gave it. Clearly your
response of covering the issue in saliva on behalf of Agambem is very
little helpful.

Much as I'd like to reply, I've very little idea from your rant what you
actually think.

Let me put my main concern with the discussion in a nutshell. Some people
seem to think that a 'life unworthy of life' is an obvious, given thing,
easily determinable.  Personally I think it's a deeply dangerous
biopolitical construct.  Am I to take it you disagree with that and think
that there are indeed lives that are unworthy?
