Swedish √ĄttestupaA cliff or rock which elderly threw themselves off (or were thrown) to their death when they couldn't be productive as to not be a burden on their family.

The term originates from Solinus' description of the Hyperboreans who lived at the North Pole where the climate's so healthy that the people there didn't die but threw themselves from a precipice into the sea. The term is mainly used as a metaphor in politics today.
