Excellence is not a monopoly.

This from Nanny Knows Best.
A really superb piece of thinking which had entirely escaped me.
Burke and Hare were body snatchers in Glasgow who turned to murder to produce 'organ donors' for the medical profession.
Which is the greatest possible argument against the wish to assume that we are all donors unless stated otherwise.

When they make it compulsory, I will systemically wreck myself, or wait until I am dying anyway and take poison.
