I guess if you don't have the faith, it all makes perfect sense. It's no different than putting your pet dog down when he gets too sick to enjoy life.

Isn't there a scene like this in The Giver? The community has a celebration before one of its members is "released."  :o

The difference is that The Giver treated it as the horror it is.

Father time has an undefeated record.

But when he's dumb and no more here,
Nineteen hundred years or near,
Clau-Clau-Claudius shall speak clear.
