Do you know the Tuskegee syphilis experiments still get to me? You got my brain rockin so hard on this, Jason. Really. If we only knew half of the atrocities our government and citizens are up to. For instance, do you really believe that some scientist somewhere hasn't attempted (or isn't in the process of attempting) to clone a human being?

And AIDS as a manufactured virus? I don't believe it. But, if it turned out to be true, I wouldn't be devastingly shocked.

Patient Zero: "Hardest of all to classify are the motivations of Gaetan Dugas, AIDS "Patient Zero." In 1980 this charming and handsome Canadian airline attendant was diagnosed with Kaposi's sarcoma (a type of skin cancer). Until his death in 1984, he continued to engage in episodes of unprotected sex with a variety of partners." .... "Dugas appeared to move between denial that whatever he had could be transmitted sexually ("Of course I'm going to have sex. Nobody's proven to me that you can spread cancer"), depraved indifference to his partners' wellbeing ("It's their duty to protect themselves. They know what's going on out there. They've heard about this disease"), and a desire to take others with him ("I've got gay cancer. I'm going to die and so are you")."

i would not be surprised to find that there was some sort of deliberate spreading of the disease, among minorities, gays, and folks in third-world countries, with genocidal intent. i've always thought that. i'm paranoid, too, so i generally tend to doubt these types of thoughts, just because i have them.

I've been saving this link for a post on the topic, but I thought I'd put it out here. I wanted to do more research, because one of the women at the "gift economy" lecture mentioned that they are targeting indigenous populations for this project because of their supposed unique genetic make-up. Dunno if that's true...but I'm jaded enough to not doubt it too terribly much.
