Losing It

Just picking up on what some people are talking about in the comments, one reason we take care of old people (income support, medicare) is that they're increasingly unable to take care of themselves as they age. Physical and mental limitations grow, as does the potential to be increasingly out of step with contemporary society (how do those computers work again?). Things need to be simple. Give them a medicare card, give them health care.
