I agree it is a poor way to cull the population, but jawapunk's observation is a very good one (with such a long latency period people spread it
before they know they have it!) I think it's poor because a lot of very important people also get infected by it through no fault of their own (e.g.
nurses, doctors getting stuck with needles, paramedics and other educated people selflessly performing cpr and the like on a person with open lesions
in their mouth) Sure, there are those new needles that kinda have an automatic spring-equipped sheath type device to counter this, but there are
still ways they are infected (plus, these are not used in NEARLY the frequency they should be!) True, it mostly affects the poor, minorities and gays
but I don't really buy it.
I remember professors, uh, professing that the fast food industry was a plot to eliminate minorities (the poor and minorities frequent such
'restaurants' in much higher numbers.) This seems to me more plausible, but as a professor once pointed out, "... but... The world still needs
janitors and garbage men. (not to be insensitive... but wealthy people don't pick up others' trash and don't go to McDonald's.) Seems more
likely, to me anyway, that if there is a plot to eliminate a certain group of individuals, fast food/tobacco/small unsafe cheaply built cars would be
the way to go. That way, its targets are more discriminate.
