    If people were really similar to what he described, it would be the strongest argument against libertarianism that one could make!

    This supposed cure is does not create immunity and even if it did, there are people born everyday without such an immunity.

    Not all cures are created equal.

    It's your narrow understanding of what profit is, that makes you believe that.

    Shall we get into semantics about what "cure" means? If it cures cancer, that means once implimented, the individual no longer has cancer.

    Profit is merely an word to describe part of the situation of the exchange of value.

    When a person goes to get medical care, both parties profit, whether or not we want to admit this.
    The medical business profits in monetary form and the sick person profits in better health.

    It does not in any way prove that libertarianism is wrong, it's just the myopic view that people hold that they are victims of the market, rather than participants.

    It depends on what type of cure it is.
    That is very relevant.

    This particular "cure" did not create immunity, it just allowed the immune system to defeat the cancer cells.
