Modern medicine is partly responsible for the proliferation of these expensive conditions. By wiping out the scourge of opportunistic disease which plagued mankind throughout its existence, we have enable otherwise likely casualties to survive, to propagate and to pass on further weakened genetics. Plague has a way of reinforcing the strength of the species. I'm not claiming I'd be a survivor of any new plague, just recognizing the unfortunate genetic side-effect of medical advancements.

But AI will have its way with us one day as the cold calculation of a human's value will be balanced with their costs and continuing care. AI will check the billowing medicare costs, and the care of young invalids and others with no likely productive outlook.
