Question: When we have a rapid die off during a possibly incurable epidemic, like HIV/AIDS, this panics people. Citizens question their faith in Government, in leaders. They question their faith in how they are winning their desires. It becomes a time of turmoil in summoning up faith.
In this turmoil, why would we make the ‘rights to vote to survive’ of these sick people, so important. Isn’t it more important to simply segregate sick from healthy people and protect the nation? Facing this HIV/AIDs global epidemic wasn’t it important to protect the healthy? People want to act fast and protect themselves, in an epidemic.
Answer: In the USA, Citizens have a right to vote for their desires, and will fight off discrimination. Even on a rapid front line of life, citizens should not discriminate and push out possible epidemic victims from work or homes. Summoning up that kind of faith, they will believe quick discrimination helps them survive. This is distinct from racist and sexist discrimination. They will feel a safety using this discrimination. This will warp their good minds when arguing about protecting a common citizen’s right to vote for their desires.
We saw how the democratic politics of Russia, emerging from the Soviet Union, changed during and after this global HIV/AIDs epidemic. We must remember these citizens rose up to overthrow their Soviet/Communist regime. Then, faced with an epidemic, they allowed discrimination to slip in as a government tool. Voting rights became diminished. Opposing political parties were pushed out and diminished. Criticism of government was punished. Even members of a girl band were convicted and giving prison terms because they sang a song criticizing their President, Putin, while inside a religious institution.
When a public gets panicked by an epidemic, leaders will step forward and summon up their faith to keep people healthy, and an economy strong. If they do not stress protecting the voting rights of epidemic victims, then they will stress discrimination and pushing out the sick. They will interact with their opponents using this type of discrimination as their weapon. They could start to ponder on what can be pushed out with the sick. They could stress that female liberties is why diseases are so prevalent. They could argue that when men subordinate women, then many diseases will be kept in check and a nation stays healthy. They could claim that a scientist does not summon up faith and is an atheist, a non believer. Or they might stress that science is a key to imposing discrimination. They might stress that modern life is why diseases are so prevalent. They will make people ignore that viruses, bacteria, fungus and even parasites are always evolving and capable of becoming an epidemic. Even untreated human waste and chemical by products, dumped in oceans, seas, lakes and rivers lead to increased probabilities of epidemics. Laying waste to vast stretches of forests can lead to emergence of epidemics.
To fight this discrimination, US Federal Government must take the lead. Their policies need to mandate that these possibly sick individuals be placed on immediate sick leave, with full pay, and insist on a visit to a free medical facility. These actions then protect rights to vote. If that medical facility clears them, they should return to work at their same job. Their firm must not refuse or incur severe federal penalties. If a medical diagnosis says epidemic victim, then there should be an immediate extended sick leave, until a government agency can take care of that individual. That individual might have a mate and children, parents, people that depend on their income. Here, choices and information is provided to the sick. This will allow organizations that protect a citizens right to vote, to step forward and gain prominence.
A few years before Hitler, there were influenza epidemics sweeping Europe with massive deaths. Many texts and films documented that Hitler advocated a harsh rule of discrimination, based on then modern technologies. Hitler was building death camps to handle anyone that was deemed sick and a threat. A stream of death camp arrivals were even temporarily steered into brothels and medical experiments. Initially, his followers were overrunning all of Europe. Even Great Britain was about to fall. Death camps had a profound effect on people in logistics, at ports, as farmers, in industries, in communications. Eventually Germans must have had a strong yearning to see Hitler and his party removed.
Germans saw that Hitler was beaten by a US President who moved about in a wheelchair because he was a victim of a polio epidemic. He led US citizens who understood that forming collective bargaining groups, like labor unions, on a front line of life, helped them win their desires. At that time, polio epidemics, swept through the USA, during warm summer months.
When the USA entered WWII, many other countries stepped forward to follow a polio victim, in a wheelchair, into battle, including the Soviet Union and Chinese Communists. When Roosevelt died, Truman, facing a Japanese nation war culture, dependent on suicide bombers, decided against an invasion and ordered two atomic bomb drops. This forced a Japanese Emperor/God to accept an unconditional surrender. And he also ordered the US Military to end segregation. He fired any US Generals and Admirals that refused his order.
Question: Weren’t the American Japanese interned in holding camps during World War II. Many of them lost their business and homes. Wasn’t President Roosevelt using discrimination as a weapon?
Answer: We must remember that at that time, the Emperor of Japan, was a living God, that died of old age. Japan also had a culture of suicide bombers in the name of their Emperor/God. If any Japanese American Priests started arguing that their followers must protect their living God from USA aggression, that could have warped many good minds. Many US Citizens still had family living in Japan. While interned, it was impossible for Japan, an Axis Power, to blackmail Japanese Americans in the USA, and wave that God/suicide flag. For many reasons, the Japanese Americans were interned. On the other hand, German Americans were not interned. Germans were not taught to worship their political leader as a living God. Germans did not have a culture of suicide attacks. After WWII, the Allies insisted that the Emperor Japan acknowledge to a Japanese Nation, that he was not a God. Japanese Americans did volunteer and serve in the US Military during WWII.
We can argue that post World War II, these Japanese American citizens were not adequately compensated for their losses.
Question: Eventually a cure for this HIV/AIDs epidemic was found, right?
Answer: Yes. But this is a difficult and complex front line. An initial cure was exceedingly expensive. Companies could then argue that yes, another company funded research for an innovative use of our cheaper products, but all should share in those profits. Thus their product prices got increased. These price increases were then a heavy burden for increased insurance premiums.
