Genuine question: What do freegans do when they start to age? Things slow down a lot, you have huge health care costs (in America at least), and it becomes harder to work. Do they die like in ‘the Giver’? Or have Obasute when they can’t pull their weight, like in ‘The Ballad of Narayama’ (this is sort of an ironic mentioning because in most Obasute stories the old are actually rewarded for their knowledge and experience and absolved from death)? I’m sure there are plenty of explanations for this, I was just wondering.
