Taleb Accuses Western Countries of Genocide of the elderly
Taleb was in full attack mode last evening after a tweet by Right Wing Diva Ann Coulter. He said that the West has betrayed intergenerational commitments, sacrificed the weakest, and committed geronticide [that is, the genocide of the elderly].
Taleb who sees great value in every member of the society has been repeatedly commending countries like India that have placed more value to life than money. In particular how India was treating its older population versus the west.
Previously Taleb said that older population donot have to justify their utility to the west
