What has been called "Max and Keira's Law" has been passed by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords and will receive Royal Assent within the next few days:
What this means is that we are all organ donors now whether we like it or not. If you are old or in hospital you are now a potential source of 'spare parts' for other people whose needs are greater than yours, allegedly. Are we entering a new Burke and Hare era? Do not think it will not happen because it will. In this brave new world of ours, a Godless and mercenary age where everything has a price it will happen. In this brave new world of sanctimonious sentimentalists crying 'think of the poor children' it will happen. And in this brave new world of ours where there is much talk of an overpopulated planet, it will happen; the first message inscribed on the Georgia Guidestones is to "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature." https://rense.com/general16/georgiaguidestones.htm
Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is much more eloquent and wiser than I could ever hope to be and explains clearly and with great insight why this new law is not a good idea -
N.B. in reference to his story about the drunk -
Kesava Shankara pillai,known as Shankar, was a famous Indian cartoonist from Kayamkulam, Kerala. He was born in 31st July, 1902 and breathed his last on 26 December, 1989.
The other Shankaran pillai ,as related by Jaggi Vasudev ,the famous Sadhguru,is a fictionalised character. He uses this definite example to give some lively meaning to his teachings. Shankaran pillai, accordingly, could be the ordinary person like you and me.
