Question and answer
how have people with disibilities been treated in the past
It truly depends on where the person lives: If you live in the Middle East and Southeast Asia the disabled is ostracized from society. In many African Cultures, [ the disabled is stoned to death as a sacrifice to please the gods. [ In Conservative States, like the Communist-Wealth of Virginia, the disabled is viewed as "Extremely simple people" or "Retarded" that lacks the intelligence to do anything but scrub toilets for a living. In Nazi Germany, the disabled was tortured and killed. In Japan, the disabled is not protected against any form of discrimination, including housing. Many
countries, people with mental disabilities are not protected against discrimination. Insurance Companies don't pay for pre-existing conditions that might caused the person's disability. In fact, some insurance companies won't even insure PWD's. In New Zealand, society strives to treat the disabled as an equal. In Canada, the government strives to end discrimination against the disabled and has set up programs to not only educate PWD's but to educate society about PWD's. ] ]
