More profound than the medical breakthroughs are the detailed arguments
against these breakthroughs! The counter-arguments are scare, and even
suggest that longevity will give another Hitler a better chance to take over
the world. They suggest that it would be horrible if money could buy
longevity, or if the rich got healthy before the poor. There is an entire
doomsday scenario based on the horrors of longer life. It is hard to
imagine that these views *against* health and longevity even exist. This
article fairly presents opposing viewpoints, and the depth and strength of
those viewpoints is profoundly disturbing.
