if you have a usefull skill or the ability to learn a skill, i want to be your neighbor. if you have no skills and no desire/ability to learn any, you are a threat to my survival as you are depleting tenuous resources. i admit i'm a tad militant, but i also feel that a candid look at the people around you will make you realize how useless and stupid most people are. cold and harsh, i know, but justified. FAR too many people are only good at managing managers, shuffling paper, and kissing butt. they won't be able to make the mental leap back a century or 5. and not everyone can survive anyway, so it makes logical sense to help anyone who can help you.
Great post, handforged!
It's posts like yours that give me hope for humanity.
