>>>Ever known anyone that got cancer? Those bills run into the hundreds of thousands.

Yes my friend. He died in his mid-50s and chose to accept his death rather than fight it. If I had been in his shoes, I would have done the same. It is far wiser to accept death, than to live in denial about the inevitable. No matter how rich you are, or how much "free" healthcare your government gives you, you will not live forever. It is pointless to try.

Interesting perspective. I wonder how far you actually take it. Surely if you get an infected wound, you treat it rather than "accept death." It sounds as if you are promoting "accepting death" solely for financial reasons.

FWIW, I know several people who got cancer, got treatement, and are now living healthy, normal lives. They are not going to live forever, but they have lived, and presumably will continue to live, for quite some time. Do you believe these people should have just "accepted death"?

While death may be inevitable, there is nothing inevitable about dying at a particular point in time, unless you choose to do nothing about it. If you are at the bottom of a pit, do you accept the inevitable and starve to death, rather than climb the rope that is being offered to you?
