You are absolutely right, CN2. It could be a robot... Why didn't I think of that?

So on NationStates you make decisions on issues and this one popped up today, they're usually quite satirical with both the issues and the debate, this one just seemed overly funny to me

The Issue

As cemeteries across Shaidang are beginning to reach their full capacities, citizens are demanding that the government step in to rectify the situation before the bodies start to pile up.
Yeah, fair enough my nation has a pop of just over 1 billion so it's to be expected

The Debate

   1. "The expansion of cemeteries must end if the remaining government land is to benefit the economy," says the Minister of Death, Max Christmas. "What I propose is that we declare all graves over, say, ten years old, as vacant. And then dump a new corpse in it. Hey, nobody objects to sharing a university dormitory with another person, why should they object to sharing their grave?"
Ok, fine, this happens irl as well

   2. "Burial plots are so expensive these days, few people are opting for them anyway," says Retirement Home owner, Konrad Broadside. "Let's just go for that final push and make cremation compulsory. Some people may not be happy with it, but when you get right down to it, it's only setting fire to their loved ones against their will - you must agree that that's less important than expanding suburban development."
A brilliant way to analyse the action of compulsery cremation 'Some people may not be happy with it, but when you get right down to it, it's only setting fire to their loved ones against their will' :|


   3. "This is horrendous," says Jean-Paul Rifkin, whose partner recently passed away. "Whatever happened to choice? When my Henry died, he was promised an eternal resting place; a place where his name would stand and he would be remembered. Having it disturbed by 'newcomers' or enforcing cremation is a slur against him and the rest of Shaidang's deceased citizens! If you have any compassion in your soul, then you'll acknowledge a grave as being a sacrosanct area. The dead must be allowed to rest in peace."
This is the general kind of 'regular' view you get as a third, diametrically opposed to the other two

   4. "Burying and cremating the dead is such a waste..." says May Barry, head of the Research Department at the McRonald's chain of fast-food restaurants. "They should be recycled for the benefit of the nation! We'll pay the families a little something for their loss, then mince up the bodies and put them in our burgers! I can't see any downsides, can you? It'd save space, recompensate the grieving, and supply everyone with a tasty snack!"
Seriously, read it again, make sure you absorb it, ok now, just lol, such brilliant reasoning for a horrific answer
