"We are killing old people"

Yesterday morning, I was going to my work and I saw a strange truck beside the road. I should like to take a picture of it in the afternoon after my work. When I've shot the truck, I saw this old man who doesn't want to be shoot. He started to speak with me.
He is a homeless. He has a cancer. He has only one year left to live.
He is road-tripping all over Europe since the year of 1980 to deliver a message. The message is :
"We are killing old people". He means that we don't take care of old people, we are just taking the money from them.
He wrote a lot of message like this on his truck and there is a special sentence : "please, difuse many pictures of my message on internet", so I do it.
Yesterday, he wouldn't be taken in picture but today he said to me :
"Hey, please, take a picture of me and put it in the WWW because I don't care if someone wants to kill me, the government or someone else..."
I don't know in fact if Bernard is crazy or not.
