Abstract:

It is foolhardy to ignore history. Not all societies have always honored the elderly. If, in a utilitarian-oriented society, obsolescence is a goal, no one can assure that the obsolescent elderly may not be discarded as efficiently as are many other items in our society. It is just as foolhardy to be passive and not try to create history.
