It’s a simple question, so a long dissertation is not required : should Anon be euthanized or not?
The accredited definition of euthanasia (per Wikipaedia) is:
“Euthanasia (from Greek: εὐθανασία; “good death”: εὖ, eu; “well” or “good” – θάνατος, thanatos; “death”) is the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering.”
Note that ‘pain and suffering’ is not a defined term, nor is it limited to the pain and suffering experienced by the person who is to be subject to this procedure. We need therefore to take into account the pain and suffering of all the people who have been oppressed or threatened with oppression by Anon. In hundreds of comments, the targets of his vile abuse include just about everyone in the LGBTQIAQQTABCDE+ communities, Jews, Jewish bankers, people of color, the transspecied etc. We can also include attractive womyn (and men – Anon swings both ways), whose photographic images Anon demands to use for mere ‘eye-candy’.
To this list must be added the many dozens of employees of the venerable AT, right down to the humble cleaners. Whilst Anon has been plain wrong on many counts, he is correct to state that the number of article views has been on a downward trajectory for some time. We can pinpoint the precise beginning of this drop-off to the moment he first started commenting. Is this a co-incidence? We think not. The AT demands the ultimate reparation! Humanely, of course.
Euthanasia is typically applied in respect of those people who are deemed to be in a vegetative state. I checked some of Anon’s posts with an accredited psychologist and doctor and have a firm ‘go-ahead’ based on their expert opinions.
Finally, to make doubly sure we have all grounds covered, we simply need to establish that the procedure was not ‘involuntary’. According to Wikipaedia, Involuntary euthanasia occurs when euthanasia is performed on a person who would be able to provide informed consent, but does not, either because they do not want to die, or because they were not asked.
So, we are asking now. Please vote away:
