Back in 1970, Douglas P. Stewart, a professor of classics at Brandeis University, made headlines for advocating that the elderly should lose the right to vote.
His thesis is this:
“The old, having no future, are dangerously free from the consequences of their own political acts, and it makes no sense to allow the vote to someone who is actuarially unlikely to survive and pay the bills for (what) he may help elect.”
In other words, Stewart thinks old people vote with an attitude of “grand je serais mort, je me ficherais de tou — (when I’m dead, it (society) can go to hell).”
