Should we support national legislations for mandatory, free of charge and confidential HIV testing of everyone who does blood test?

Considering the tragic magnitude and destructive power of AIDS and the general welfare of the society, as well as people who suffer from AIDS or who are HIV positive, should we support national legislations for mandatory, free of charge and confidential testing of everyone who does blood test?

  • Jan 17 2013: Thanks for taking the time to contribute! I do not claim to be an expert, just a regular guy with access to the internet and a hunger for truth. There is so much information available to the average person to the contrary of the official propaganda linking HIV with AIDS that I find it amazing that we swallow the propaganda when the experts cannot even always agree.

    I can't counter debunk what you said point by point all in one post. My purpose for stating these things is for common people like me to search the internet for themselves on each of these controversial topics. Hopefully you will see a pattern that repeats in history every other generation. Where there is money there are lyers. There is information to the contrary to what you said easily found online, but it's not about me or you but rather the issue at hand. At least we agree that "finding an immediate cure" is not the priority when there's so much money to be made in between.

    My point is that arguing over the aftereffects of the lie is irrelevant. The lie must be addressed. It's like going on an expedition to see the bottom of a rainbow. The whole expedition is futile and must be re-examined.

    I'd just like to mention on point 11 and 13 that emphasizes the total corruption through financed monopoly of the medical system: at least you can contradict evolutionary theory and quantum physics without losing your medical license. Our well-meaning doctors are therefore incentivised to not challenge big pharma or use common sense. Therefore, I consult my doctor but make my own judgement. And polygamy and early marriage are deterrents to the spread of AIDS since marriage commitments insulate from cross-infection. The US definition of "freedom" now includes free sex and gender identity from the moment you have something and someone to do it with. The US is arguably more "highly sexual" than Africa. And you enforce my point with homosexuality and drugs corroborating US stats for male infections.
