Dying Ain’t Much of a Living, Boy

The title above is one the most famous "one liners" from Clint Eastwood. For those who may be interested in the context, it comes from the movie, "Outlaw Josey Wales" and is said by the protagonist in response to the statement, "Man’s got to do something for a living" by the antagonist, prior to a duel in a bar.
What is facinating today, is that human society has marginalized and disenfranchised so many, for so long that dying has become a living, a passion, a business, a calling, a salvation, for a significant swath of humanity.
