What we can learn from this AIDS activists confrontation against US government in the 80’s and 90’s is that we cannot just sit back and rely on governments, drug companies, and religious establishments to help people with illness. We must push them to do it.
Governments always have so many lame excuses to just let people, minority, die. Drug companies are only there for the money, and religious establishments are basically always feel too smart to learn things they don’t understand. And we can’t rely on the majority of people either. These activists fought Bush Senior, and in 2000 the majority elected his son as president–and in 2004 they did it again.

My Rating: 8/10
