Nelson Mandela re. the year of the older person

"A society that does not value its older people denies its roots and endangers its future. Let us strive to enhance their capacity to support themselves for as long as possible and, when they cannot do so anymore, to care for them." ~ Nelson Mandela in a message announcing 1999 as the United Nations International Year of Older Persons, 17 December 1998

And governments still in 2013 give bailouts or tax exemptions to the mega rich at the same time cutting services and financing for seniors. For Profit rules. JMB
