    Yup. Ever hear of social responsibility?

    Maybe you really need to worry about the stupid wasteful government spending that does not work toward saving lives.

    Do you care about the lives of responsible citizens, or not? Make up your mind.
    Personally, like I said, if I could make a cure, I would only give it to the innocent victims. I also pretty much think that anyone who passes aids to another person is guilty of torture and attempting murder, at a minimum and murder if that person dies, and there for should be convicted of doing so and taken out back and shot. The risk factors have been known for decades, testing has been available also, there is absolutely no reason for an infected person engaged in risky factors not to know they infected.

    Do I care, sure I do, but enough to spend billions for a cure to a disease that shouldn't even exist any longer, no. Finding cures for disease, except by military doctors treating conditions unique to military service, is not the governments job or responsibility. If you think more needs to spent, the go donate to a charity doing the research and deduct it from your taxes, that and shooting the criminals that pass it to others, is the only involvement the government should have.

    It is not the governments job to save lives, it is the governments job to provide the freedoms and environment in which industry and charities can go about the business of saving lives and to provide an environment where people are free to make their own choices and live, or die, as the result of those choice. The government cannot even save lives by murder laws, it only punish those who break that law, only an individual can reasonably protect themselves. It cannot save anyones life, everyone dies, even if it provided all the medical and drugs in the world, it can only prolong life, it cannot save it.

    Almost all social programs are "stupid wasteful government spending".

    We have a fundamental difference of opinion about the role of government in society, then. I believe that government has an absolute obligation to maintain order-- and epidemic diseases are a form of disorder.

    See, I knew that in time you might actually start developing a proper attitude towards government, keep learning, you will get there.

    Because libertarians actually have to ask this kind of question.

    So, because the government is incapable of making people immortal, it should never try to do any bit of good. Got it.
