What is the return on investment on this?

Society keeping old people alive just so they can turn around and go back to hospital for more outrageous medical procedures?
It seems the Neanderthals had more humanity than you have, scientists have discovered the remains a badly crippled member of a Neanderthal family who was cared for long after he suffered his injuries.

to give an answer the return is this 100 years ago average life expectancy was about 45 to 50 years that all you got most chidren died before they reached adulthood many young adults died of tyfoid child birth small pox polio tuberculosis and a lot off old people simply starved or froze to death, thats documented fact, now even in the usa the average life expectancy is near or ao bout 80 infant mortality is about atenth or what it was 100 years ago
the marvel is people in their 90s still active .. y dear old dad is still with us we love him so if he had gone wed be broken he is still active and happy he even has a girl friend.. on an average day he does better than i do.. you can thank modern medicine a combination of private companies and public funding it isnt cheap but that is the return a life expectancy abut double what it was.. and a improved quality of life.. do some research people in their 8s 90s even their 100s are active and healthy.. it is sort of a miracle!

Actually Sabcat, you sound a lot like Ayn Rand did in her early days when she was healthy. Then she got old and what do you know?

How did you know that they demanded strangers from neighboring communities take care of him against their will?
