What do you get without respect? Ignorance and intolerance. We can't make progress when we hate each other or can't hear an opinion different from our own. Globally, ignorance and intolerance cause wars, suffering, and poverty. Locally, ignorance and intolerance produce violent neighborhoods, suffering, and abuse. Combined, they are the world's most deadly disease. Nearly 75% of Americans suffer from it. Lack of respect is the root of many problems. It costs us $350 bazillion every year plus emotional costs. And it impedes progress and prosperity. Care about either of these? Then you care about fighting ignorance and intolerance.
Genocide, war, and religious and political strife are the frequent symptoms of the disease. In the US alone, nearly 75% of the population has been infected with varying degrees of the contagion.

Read how ignorance and intolerance influence large portions of the population.

First, we educate our allies about Elixir of Life, and they approve its use for their own countries and a global plan. Then, with our allies, we educate the rest of the world.
Lastly, we drop Elixir of Life on hostile countries.Is this correct? A nation of 30 million can be vaccinated for $1 billion; recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost us trillions of dollars.
