The “ageing population” will never go way


What is this “ageing population” we hear about – and are blamed for – all the time?

The population is living longer – so when WE snuff it, there will be another “ageing population” coming along behind.

We need to get over it!

It will always be with us.

The Chinese have it worse in looking after their ageing population. The  one-child policy that has been active to control the population growth, often leaves ONE child caring for two parents and four grandparents.

There is room for complaint there.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. It’s being tougher and living longer, and mostly healthier. That’s why they put The Pension Age up.
    It’s not as though they don’t know about this. Although to listen to some you might think we are committing a crime by refusing to die.


Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
