One of those people is right here. I just sold my car because I worked out the maths and realised I was working part-time (can't get full-time hours) at a crappy job and was just making enough to run the car, and I was only using the car to go to work. Hilarious if it wasn't so desperately sad. I want to work but can't get anything. And before any smart ass starts up about there 'being work if you are willing to do crap jobs' - the job I do is cleaning offices at night - despite a university education and lots of experience in much better jobs.

What's the point?

I hate to say it but the point is this...
It is past time for the boomers to start dying en masse.

Although it was a cheesy sci-fi movie even when it was released - there is some sound resonance to the premise behind logans run - just like with sound money - you need to control the population of circulating units of value and one way of doing that is capping its longevity as it's circulatory activity dminishes it slows the entire corpus and needs to be culled.

Its just simple math!

1950: 16.5 employed workers per social security recipient

Presently: 2.9 employed workers per social security recipient

How soon until it is 1 to 1?

THIS is unsustainable...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2836766

Culling the old, so that the MINDLESS VIDEO GAME BRATS of the new generation can have MORE does not sound sustainable either. The new generation doesn't even know what work is! And they are dumb!... so WOW, I say maybe culling of the old is the wrong demographic.
