The most logical thing to do

So. My health fund here in capitalist Germany is planning to go to the trouble of asking me whether I want to be an organ donor, in an obscene nationwide ritual celebrating the freedom of organ-owners to be deluded and bloody-minded even beyond the grave.

When I lived in communist Germany I could breathe freely, as I knew that if I was brain-dead the surgeons would follow normal procedure and simply take whatever organs they needed, without asking anyone, because it was (and is) the most logical thing to do.
