Austerity, Up Close and Personal, Part 2 “Austeritywitz”: German Elderly Being “Shipped to the East”

An aspect of Ger­many’s “aus­ter­i­ty” dik­tat that has escaped notice and dis­cus­sion con­cerns what Deutsch­land is doing with its poor, elder­ly peo­ple. Because of the expens­es involved in car­ing for the these “unde­sir­ables,” they are being shipped “to the East.” We have seen this from Ger­many before. The unini­ti­at­ed might be inclined to dis­miss this as being of lit­tle sig­nif­i­cance. After all, they aren’t being killed, as they were under the Third Reich. Not yet, they aren’t. On the oth­er hand, IF they were, who would report it? And with “aus­ter­i­ty” the order of the day for the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EU, what will hap­pen as the “expense” of deal­ing with the infirm increas­es?
