  1. I really dug the new opening music. Very comfy!

  2. Brings to mind the whole issue of cost disease that slatestarcodex brought up a few weeks ago, a conversation which neoreactionaries were all too happy to continue.

      I don’t think we can admit that some people should not receive treatment.

      1. I have cop friends who have treated the same junkie with Narcan five or more times. Its just emboldened junkies to do even more and stronger dope. It artificially extends their lives so they can steal more before they finally die. My solution is that after the first time getting Narcan, the junkie automatically receives an NEM and DNR order. From that time forward they receive no life saving medical treatment of any kind. That is their second chance.

  3. You touched on it a bit with people with chronic conditions, but this can also expand into end of life care. End of life care is so damn expensive (about 30% of medicare spending) because people with chronic conditions are kept at some low level of function and have generally poor follow-up. Their shit piles up until they end up in a hospital. Being obese and diabetic does that to you. The Godlessness we have today makes things worse as people are a lot less accepting of simply moving on.

    Then we have the code statuses of the degenerates. In a more cynical sense, if Medicare and Medicaid really wanted to save money, they would start looking at their patient rolls, and have their social workers exclusively work on convincing the sickest to mark themselves as DNR-CC. Frankly, if you spend enough time in the ICU, half the shit they do is outright torture.

    People treat the palliative and hospice doctors like such shit when the subjects get broached. Palliative and hospice is cheap, and at that point they come in, the life expectancy difference is really not all that big.

      Dude, you nailed it. In the past four months two extended family members died of exactly those two conditions. And people couldn’t come to terms with the fact that the lack of discipline to stay healthy was the cause of death, I mean, “passing”. Speaking of Godlessness, one funeral was a complete mockery, and the other person was cremated without any service. We are literally erasing ourselves from history. How people don’t get it is beyond me.

    Chris Morris is a mixed bag so it’s not quite what you have in mind necessarily but worth a look.

  5. The new intro music is like 1000 better then the electro garbage from before.

      Seconded. But I’m happier about the fact there is no outro music. The previous outro music used to wake me up after I’d fall asleep halfway through the podcast.

      1. So true. Its like the end of the day, you pour yourself a drink and you wanna listen to the NPR Voice of the altright and despite that you could overjump the intro and your computer would just go into standby in like half an hour, the outro raises you from your slumber up back from the caoch like some ultra rare cyber pepe would reeeeeee at you from the speakers.

        1. Thanks guys. I was legit laughing at these insults.
