Man, I am surprised that they are reacting like this. This modification of the virus is to be expected, along with drug resistance. This is
something that the public should
be hysterical about, because it seems to have gotten rather slack in being [i[fearful of aids, since the
infection rates, nearly across the board, are rapidly rising.
This is a public health matter, not a poltico-socio one.
"Blaming the victims" for having symptoms of epidemic infectious disease
They will be blamed more if they fail to respond, even within their own group, and curtail the transmission. Human groups are irrational creatures,
society, as a whole, is not capable, apparently, at least in this case, of thinking rationalyl about the matter. Aids is deadly and transmitable thru
unprotected sex. People were scared of it for a while. Then reason set in, and treatments became available. People weren't scared. They started to
engage in dangerous behaviours, the disease started to spread agian, hell people are apparently even trying
to get the disease, these 'bug
chaser' idiots. So now the infection rate goes back up and people are dying.
Its almost fortunate
that there is a rapid onset version now. It will make people think of aids as something horrible and disgusting, rather
than something that merely requires you to take a cocktail of pills.
Also notice that rapid onset diseases only tend to flourish in populations where there is a high transmittance rate. IOW, by not being scared little
animals and take at least a minimum of precautions, humans have proabably helped
, in an evolutionary sense, this rapid onset type to come into
So, rational thinking would be best, because then people would be careful and reduce the transmisson rate. But people are too stupid for that
apparently, and can, literally, in this case, only be protected by fear.
