Someone once told me that AIDs could be eliminated if you killed everyone that has it.

Yes. That would work, wouldn't it?

thats pretty much the idea...just not by killing them, but letting them live (until death of course) where they will not spread the disease to anyone else, therefore eliminating the disease.

Does not the end justify the means? Cut the middle steps and just get rid of them.

I don't think that's a Social Justice proposal. Social Justice does things like increase taxes on the wealthy, create welfare, and hurt the economy. Going by the game system as I understand it, I actually believe that this would fall more under Moral Decency.

So instead of dealing with AIDS as a disease you'd rather ship off all people suffering from it.

Hmmm, I don't suppose you want to kill jewish people too?

Maybe you also enjoy planning to sterilise people of different skin colour, what about gay bashing?

Hmmm, planning to institute that as well?

Its a sad day when a disease stops being an illness and becomes a reason to be torn from society by a small few who rule with misguided power, After all, no one chooses to get AIDS, how many walk along a beach and are stuck by needles let by infected junkies? What about health and welfare workers infected in the line of their work, what about cops stuck by junkies resisting arrest?

It seems to me if you want to stop aids, educate more people about it, institute more research into treatment/vaccines and stop treating it as something you can wipe away, because AIDS lives IN people, and its a sad day when you think you can wipe them away where you can't see them.

You'll not be murdering them, but your only a step away.
