“Look, if you see a car crash, somebody’s lying there in the middle of the road bleeding and it turns out they’re a drunk driver, you’re still going to call an ambulance. We can’t make these judgments about entire civilizations. We try to re-educate people, we try to deal with the problem. And by the way, not dealing with the problem with something like AIDS, which metastasized, which grows on a geometric level, is really foolhardy. Because it will be more expensive to deal with it later.” – Bono –
