Taking a close look at the name, AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, we can see it is a nonsense. Is someone playing a cruel joke on gullible and unsuspecting people? I can go shopping and ‘acquire’ things, or enroll in a course and ‘acquire’ extra skills in say, languages or woodworking. But how does one go about ‘acquiring’ less of something?
It's like primary school in more ways than one.
