You do know if we get a cure to HIV
i'll tell you how to cure AIDS ... In fact AIDS is still the most CUREABLE disease of our time but we continue to waste millions of dollars on research.
Unlike many other deadly diseases, the cure for AIDS is known. We know exactly how it is transmitted. We know exactly who is the most at risk. We know exactly how to prevent it. The spread of HIV/AIDS is almost wholly the result of reckless behavior. I am not trying to be insensitive to the people that have found themselves with the AIDS. People find themselves with all sorts of problems due to bad choices, it is not nice to kick them when they are down. But it only perpetuates the problem if society continues to condone the behavior that causes AIDS.
If you are stupid enough to engage in a deadly behavior, you should be responsible for the outcome. Maybe we should just put everyone that continues to engage in this behavior on an island and let them continue to infect each other until they die off. The rest of us sane people will be better off. Isn't that what we used to do with deadly diseases?
