“They can act as judge, jury and executioner. Their heavy handed actions can ruin the lives of the very people that pay their premiums.”
“Ruined because of a slip. Ruined because an allegation was made. Or ruined because someone dared demand that their contract be respected.”
Did you know that one in four spotted hyena pups is killed by their own litter-mate.
Offspring of the black eagle are even more ruthless. The eagle lays two eggs, and the first chick to hatch makes sure its brother or sister never makes it out of the nest alive.
"Interpreting the right-to-die within the right-to-life is contentious," said Rosh, "While one can choose not to exercise one's right-to-life (a right explicitly protected in NZ) or choose to commit suicide (which is legal in NZ) etc., one's right-to-life does not extend to allowing someone else to take one's life."
"Voluntary consent is therefore not a universally valid defence for murder."
Boot them out! Ask them to take their fighting somewhere else where you don't have to hear it.

"The protection of all its citizens by State was deemed to be of greater importance than the respect for an individual's autonomy."
"Be careful", said Rosh, "Online advertisements can be scams."

"Enforcing the right-to-die by law puts society on a 'slippery slope' with huge potential for abuse."
"Its interpretation can eventually reach a point where what is allowed would have been unacceptable initially."
“It is like a home is bought by 10 people, and one owner needs some money. So he sells a part of his share to the other owners or new owners and partly cashes his equity out. How can that be bad?”
"The income from these assets will go overseas to make the foreign investors richer," Isha argued.

"However, I agree that it is important that suffering should not be prolonged unnecessarily."
"I oppose tax cuts," Isha was saying, "because they benefit the rich. The rich get a lot more money back than the ordinary taxpayers like me. That's not fair."
