Are You Using that Kidney?

Larry Niven has some truly distopic visions of how we will deal with pervasive organ donations. In my short, adult life, I have seen us take the first tentative steps down every slippery slope he imagined. Again I ask, why do we never listen to our smartest citizens? Don't get too hung up on the particulars; instead read the justifications carefully, then try to imagine what even a mediocre politician could do with them.

Is is OK to get paranoid now?
