    According to this, it isn't worth as much as it once was.

    The value of a life seems to be following the value of the dollar: Downward.

    From the article:

    I would value life at about $1 to eliminate all the burdensome regulation. Make life too valuable and suddenly we're stuck with all kinds of new regulations on what we can and cannot do.

    Some regulation is necessary, just as some government is necessary, but we have far too much of BOTH as it is.

    It depends on which life you're talking about and worth how much and to whom?

    Some people are convinced they are not dispensible or mortal, that they somehow stand above others and are more priveleged, more immortal. Which of course is utter nonsense, since we all will die sooner or later.

    I will direct you to the thread on Santeria though for some thoughts on how much certain lives are worth and who, or rather "what"? seems to deem relative value on them....or not...

    While each one of those four men probably was dead sure (pardon the pun) that their life was worth much more than the common man. It's all relative. Whatever agenda you think you're operating under that seems impenetrable, there is always one above yours that is capable and willing at times to demonstrate just how wrong you are..

    It seems the Saints really are marching in..

    There are stranger things in Heaven and Earth than dreamt of in your philosophy..
