What should we do with an aging population?

What should we do with old people?  Let's use an analogy.

Plastics last for a long time.  Same as spent, radioactive, nuclear rods. 
Both are bad for the environment.

iPhones have built-in obsolescence. They are designed to be thrown away, not fixed.  They are meant to be disposable.
That's why you see a lot of people with shinny new phones.

Steve Jobs was the person who pushed for planned obsolescence.
When he died, Apple went to shit.

Steve Jobs always had the latest iPhone.

Take away:
1.  Old people are bad for the environment.
2.  Young people are aesthetically pleasing 
3.  We need a person who pushes the idea to get rid of old people
4.  That person should be given a street legal, young, play thing

Do you know what I mean? 
Do you people see what I did there?
Do you know where I'm coming from?

Killing the old people, as in all old people? I believe that classifies as genocide.

The entire human race should be sterilized thus ridding the earth of it's most destructive species.

This would pave the way for the acceleration of the mental development of other intelligent life forms such as ants,dolphins etc., to develop their abilities and perhaps reverse the unforgivable decimation we have inflicted, and continue to inflict, upon mother Earth.

The suggestion that we should eliminate a section of our society is proof positive that nature is on route to finding a way to halt the hitherto unstoppable march towards human induced planet ruination.

That is, the beginning of self destruction.

They say the degree of civilization of a society can be judged by how the old, mentally ill or other disadvantaged groups are cared for.

Here is a slightly amended version of martin Niemoller's poem

First they came for the AGED

AND I DID NOT SPEAK OUT BECAUSE I AM NOT OLD,

THEN THEY CAME FOR THE COMMUNISTS.

AND I DID NOT SPEAK OUT BECAUSE I AM NOT A COMMUNIST,

THEN THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS

AND I DID NOT SPEAK OUT BECAUSE I AM NOT A SOCIALIST,

THEN THEY CAME FOR THE TRADE UNIONISTS

AND I DID NOT SPEAK OUT BECAUSE I AM NOT A TRADE UNIONIST,

THEN THEY CAME FOR THE JEWS

AND I DID NOT SPEAK OUT BECAUSE I AM NOT A JEW,

THEN THEY CAME FOR ME

AND THERE WAS NO ONE LEFT TO SPEAK FOR ME

This Nasis type recommendation which is akin to Hitler's Final solution is further confirmation that every nation has its Himmler type butchers in their midst and our civilization has not progressed one millimetre since homo erectus on the planet.

Rule of thumb;- Two legs bad,four legs good.

You are describing Misanthropic Nihlism--a very dangerous, pernicious philosophy that is being pushed as of the last couple decades.

Get rid of capitalists, that's how you save the environment.
