When people discovered the symptoms of a cancer and start feeling pain they will find ways on how to ease the pain. For this article, colon cancer and the method of curing it, which is colonoscopy will be used. However, when people find a way to ease the pain, they will tend to forget what happened in the past. Just like in the political world. If the leader do something bad and affects the society and the economy, most of the time, people will get mad and will do everything just to have someone who will replace the political leader.
