Probably many of you have heard of dead peasants insurance, made noteworthy by Michael Moore many years ago, among others, as the immoral, but legal practice of benefitting off of the demise of a person, without their consent and or their knowledge.
I contacted a lawyer here in Canada and asked if there was any law requiring a person be notified at the time someone takes out life insurance on them, to which they responded no, there was not. This begs the question, why not………
There are literally hundreds of thousands of laws, yet they could not see a reason to make this OBVIOUSLY prone to corruption and abuse practice into a crime. Hmmmmmmmmm.
I guess, in theory of course, that I could insure my neighbour and then kill him. All I would need would be his name, rank and serial number, so to speak.
You can be sure our governments are doing the same when we die, especially since we know that countries are corporations, as are provinces, states, cities and towns and so on down the line, down to the person.
Maybe you might want to ask your employer or representative if YOU are insured.
Dead Peasant Policy: a life insurance policy that employers can own as the beneficiary in case their employee dies.
This immoral and unethical practice by many large corporations was unknown to the average American worker until the film maker Michael Moore popularly exposed its existence and wide spread abuse at the turn of the 21st century.
Hey my fields will not get plowed if my peasants suddenly die and my crops rot. I need insurance on my dead peasants. Hey, then I can make even more money if I deny my peasants health care and work them to death.
