8. A cure would be wonderful, but what society REALLY needs right now is decent assisted living
places that don't cost the patients and their families their whole life's earnings. Look how long it's taking for a cure for diabetes (either kind), breast cancer, or any other chronic disease that costs big $$.
I have to wonder whether cures are not in the offing because there is too much money being made on treatment, fundraising, etc. It's horrible to contemplate, but our society doesn't run toward "cures" for anything -- it gravitates toward what "solution" will squeeze the most money out of the opportunity before some goody two-shoes actually finds a cure just out of the goodness of his heart.
